My ST225 rims need refurbing, doing em this year when weather picks up, as they have light kerb marks & grazes, thinking of having em sprayed either gunmetal grey or anthracite.haven't decided yet, also need to spray & fit zetec-s front bumper skirt & rear carbon effect diffuser, but ran out funds:(

Ah dear, nothing worse than having no money to do the mods you want.

 

I have my original focus 16" alloys + tyres sitting in my front room. Gonna clean them and put them on eBay. Some kerbing on two of the alloys, but the other two look ok. Thinking between £120-150.

 

Front splitter and Rear bumper diffuser are on the cards for the future for me :)

Looking good mate,
Lovin the carbon effect on the diffuser too, perhaps have a clear coat of lacquer sprayed on the diffuser to help deter stone chips upsetting the print, but feel the surface first you may not need to, cant tell from pictures

Yeah splitter can't wait to get.

Rear diffuser I'd prefer it in moondust silver, since my focus is Sea Grey.

Although I would as well but this one is in carbon effect,it has slight defect on edges, so was refunded half the cost so only cost me around 25 +shipping & duty fee,

Speaking of kerbing, i recently kerbed my front left rim lightly, after months of protecting the perfection i have failed! ripped through my heart like a bullet!

 

Does your new tyres have rim protection ridge/lip? it helps alot! but i was unable to find the exact same tyres with rim protection

One thing I've been meaning to ask:

 

Front splitter: Does it attach over the existing front bumper with screws and adhesive?

 

Rear Diffuser: Im confused about how this attaches to the car. On the one hand you have pictures like this which imply it somehow affixes to the existing space under the bumper: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231081407756

 

Then you have ones like this, which I think are probably the official ones, which looks as if they go over the existing bumper:

Also would parking sensors be an issue when attaching the rear diffuser?
