Focus St170

Basically, got quite a few plans for my little motor so thought i'd start a thread and let you all see it progress!

Car started as a bog standard 2004, silver ST170, 80,000 miles and i am the 3rd owner from new!

All that i have done so far is lowered it on coilovers and had BBS RS wheels fitted!

As it was...

Got some new wheels and coilovers on!

Thats all that's happened so far, but on the cards are;

-Slight more lowering to remove the arch gap

-FlyEye headlights and rear fogs

-Vinyl wrapped roof

Anyone got anysuggestions as to what colour to do the roof? Thinking of either gloss black or matt grey (any photoshops would be wicked ;) )

So yeh, watch this space!

Just thought I'd share a few more pictures... Fitted fly eye to my rear fogs, and soon to be front and rear lights too! Oh and also put on my Heko wind deflectors which look pretty tidy too :)

Tiny update, vinyl wrapped my headlight washers to silver... Could have painted but had the vinyl to hand...

Unsure if I should do this with vinyl to the front splitter, as I hate it black... And I don't have a piece of vinyl long enough to go the whole way haha (if done properly it will be near and prefect)

Opinions?

True :d but 5 or 7 spoke look too skinny.

They show too much hub/drum/disc and jave the appearance of ceiling fans about them.

Does anybody have any idea what size the interior bulb is in the st170, or the mk1.5 focus... I've got the 501 LEDs for the side two, but the main middle one is a longer bulb...

Thanks!

It's a festoon type, it's either a 38mm or 42mm.

The contacts do bend to accomodate different sizes so not too important.

Adam, I love those BBS wheels. I want to do the same thing to my ST170. Don't worry, I'm in Australia, so you wont be seeing a copy of your car any time soon.

What size are the wheels and tires?, and are there any warnings before purchasing the wheels, like space restrictions etc.
thanks
