Hello everyone. Just a quick introduction

I'm Jim I'm from paisley ( just outside glasgow ) I've got a 1.6 focus mk2 auto reason I got an auto is cos I drive transits at work so I thought a auto wold be relaxing after a days driving lol

The car is still basic tho I've did I few mods new head installed the 12v outlet in the boot. Interior LEDs are next

Mods I wanna do get the centre console did in carbon fibre effect using hydro graphics and my rocker cover gonna get daylights and tint the windows. New alloys and lower it possibly new exhaust system and take the bump strips off to make it look smoother

Some pics of it as it stands post-53860-139965141813_thumb.jpgpost-53860-139965142834_thumb.jpgpost-53860-139965143932_thumb.jpgpost-53860-139965145123_thumb.jpgpost-53860-139965146385_thumb.jpg

Not sure on what kit would fit, as I believe the RS has different bumper mouldings and brackets to the rest of the range, so you may struggle!

If you wanted to give it a facelift, you could replace the front end with the MK2.5, maybe go with the Zetec S or ST front end? although you might need to tart up the rear to make it stand out more for the right reasons

I expect so, but in the grand scheme of things and if you find a good garage, you could do a good job for less.
