guys, as you may well know, getting hold of side skirts for a 5 door is a mission but i found a set on ebay and they were not a Ford item, in fact there is no branding on it. They are made from a rubber type compound and have a degree of flexibility to them

 

I did have black exhaust Milltek tips but decided to go for some stainless steel ones instead - i will have to keep these clean...

 

so, what do you thinks???

fitting wise they were easy enough but one side sits a bit lower otherwise it would catch the doors

i had to modify it slightly and fit brackets underneath to help secure them.

Wow! 19'' Did you lower the car because the arches are just the right gap along with the offset as well. 

Here in Ireland, with the state of the roads, I could never get away with that size. 17'' is a very comfy ride here over the potholes :)

Your baby is looking great Sal. I think the silver exhaust tips look better than the black.

Cars not lowered yet...but the ride is fine even on our poor roads.
Silver tips do look better...need to apply some elbow grease to get them shiny

I havent really got a build thread. Just the odd post here and there. Im an ebay bargain hunter but like yiu say it still adds up. If my missus found out the true cost she'd go and buy a ring with a big rock on it to compensate

lol, I dont dare tell mine how much the mod's come to, she sees the bills for the repairs and maintenance, if she knew the true cost of all modifications, I would probably be strung up!

Looks awesome Seal,
Black or carbon wing mirror caps and a set of black headlight units would finish it off nicely,
Those side skirts look better than ford too.

If you get the time mate
You should start a build thread in the specific section and add all of your images from photo bucket then add words inbetween each of the images.
