#490641 Ford Focus Mk2.5 Build

Posted by Wheels93 on Today, 08:21 AM

Its more the cables under the bumper that I don't want to look untidy. I know you never see them lol but still. If I had the time to do it properly I would as I know I'd be anal about getting them trunked properly and ensuring that it looks tidy and OEM.

I'll take a look at those paints though. My fogs are in definite need of paint as they look so dated compared to the rest of the grills so might do it then.

Here's a photo of the motor now with the skirts on. Forgot to attach before.

Ill take note of the rear wiper ;) would you suggest gloss or darker black?

I keep looking for a LHD fog but want to find one ideally with a red bulb. I don't want to do a dual reverse mod really as the car is in brilliant nick at the moment and I don't want to start Frankensteining anything lol.

I've got some on order as I'm looking at doing some strips. I'm going to strip the cables back and solder to the strip. Should be adequate then I hope. £1.60 Hong Kong gamble isn't too much of a loss.

The strips look so much better than a single bulb though!

Looks great. Would it not have been more simple to use these however?

Been a month since I've done anything .. Jesus .. Well I made good use of my bank holiday folks and fitted my zetec s side skirts so it now has the full kit on and is looking pretty swarve (I know im bias hehe)

Now the kits all fitted I am looking at getting some mud flaps on and a custom exhaust by the time ford fair comes along. As long as the better half releases my funds :P

Thinking about doing some detailing this weekend to get it back to the standard it should be. Unfortunately going to have to be gentle with the front. For those that don't know. I've had to have the front resprayed again as the paint started to flake. Apparently the previous bumper owner used poor paint when they coated it. My point to the bodyshop was it should have been rubbed down to nothing and then primed and painted. Needless to say I got it done for free ;)

Was the stem hard to wire in?

Hey Lenny .. I'm looking at buying the same radio as you. Only just noticed re-reading the thread its the one I want. Been looking for an android auto one.

Only thing is yours doesn't seem to meet the surrounding bezel.. Is this the case or camera shot? Also have you wired up the stem controls?

Been out and removed the wipers to try and show you the range before they catch the water.

They do fire quite high. Whether they fire across the whole window screen I can't be certain but the wipers carry the water around too unsure how I can get a picture of the range

the first year doesnt be long going mate my eldest is eight now,
My youngest daughter is now six and she was almost bauld until she was two, teeth werent coming too early neither and they cried about almost everything,
This lad came out like woulferene needed nails cut and full head of hair lol hardly cries atall but the other problem is vicki has never put him down since he came home in december so he's got no reason to call out i suppose,


My littleun came out with a full head of hair and its like a mop now. Visually she is developed for her age. Just lazy lol. She's in a walker and everything but these things take their time I guess.

He's made a fantastic recovery thanks five months old now he is,
Moved in to his cott there last month, he's full of smiles and giggles,
Getting teeth at present and full of Gab :)
His two older sisters keep him well entertained too, only Cry's when he's got wind or hungry,


Surprising how kids are so different. My little one is 1 in 3 weeks. No teeth, not attempting to walk, crawl or bum shuffle lol. I've got the words no and dad before but think they were accidental
