Lenny thanks for the ideas , I'm gonna do a ST replica and mist of the things you said I'm gonna do , few things I'm gonna do first is new stereo with reverse camera and also footwell lighting but I'm nit one if the lucky ones with the wiring already there so do you no where to get the wiring from and is it easy to do? Got the climate control knobs on watch on ebay and I've ordered new focus mats and I'm also looking at St body kit and thinking prob a rs spoiler instead of St and maybe even wrapping it in a different colour but that will be the last thing on the list

sounds good mate,
Plenty of ST breaking if your willing to wait you can save alot buying pieces second hand on ebay,
Once sprayed its all the same,
I didnt have the footwell loom neither so i purchased the cables aswell as an illuminated ignition ring and rear footwell pods,
See the guide here: http://www.fordowner...d/?fromsearch=1
while your wiring footwell lighting you may also like to fit some projector puddle lights:

no prob,
Ive linked two guides there and both have links to suppliers within the uk,
Footwell lighting front&rear plus puddle lighting and the illuminated ignition ring will cost around 50 pounds all including postage.
You can install the puddle lights at the same time but you dont need to,
I added mine at a later date but there cheap enough to buy and figured while your there would be easy to continue and fit them too as they all work on the same loom.

Yer that sounds wicked and for £50 that's a cheap and easy but really effective mod , I guess people sell bits on here and may even be able to pick up a few St bits on here

they do pop up from time to time,
Keep an eye in the buy&sell section theres one guy gonna be selling a duplex exhaust end section from his ST replica in june,
The standard ST exhaust doesnt fit our focus so we need a duplex to bend around the tyre well see here:
http://www.fordowner...ipe-st-replica/

Hardest parts to find are:
5 door side skirts
ST pod
ST pod surround.

Yer 5 door side skirts I haven't seen anywhere but when you say the pod do you mean the interior 3 dials that sit on the dash? I've found 3 of those on ebay , ah the exhaust sounds like a good deal , do I need to change anything else on the exhaust or just add the bit he is selling?

The surround section that the pod sits in to was rare at one stage,
Regarding the exhaust you would just need what hes selling aswell as an exhaust bracket for the passenger side from ford costs under 20 pounds from ford.

You definitely need to do the spoiler.
The Mk2 spoiler is not very nice at all.
I did mine and the car looks far nicer.
I have guides you may like to check out also. (Viewable as PDF downloadable files under my posts when seen on a PC).

Ordered new mats today as my car didn't have mats in , ordered blue xenon bulbs for front lights and side lights and also number plate bulbs as well as stereo fascia kit with a Sony double din screen xav bt01 which is pretty cool and also got the adaptor so I don't lose my stalk adaptor , also nearly brought the customs climate control knobs but gonna wait to pay day for those which is Friday!!! It's gonna be an expensive project but by looking at lennys and everyone else's it's gonna be worth it ! If anyone wants to save me some money feel free to donate me parts haha !
