Modifications

Recommended Posts

Just updated my signature with all of the tweaks, modifications and other things I've done/purchased (not a lot so far!) and what I'm planning on doing. Hoping to stick some 17" Focus ST170 wheels on my car soon, or perhaps even some 17" RS7's.

Something like this:

Depends how long you want to spend cleaning your wheels ;)

Hey guys.

Looking for some advice. My 2010 Focus Zetec came with these 17" alloys that I think look smart...

"https://www.flickr.com/photos/hussydog/18206503315" title="The New Car by Anthony Bush, on Flickr"><img src="https://c4.staticflickr.com/8/7777/18206503315_4f0a334312_z.jpg" width="640" height="453" alt="The New Car"></a>

Now I want to further enhance the cars stance by gently dropping her but I want to keep her looking subtle and not over the top so looking at 20mm. It currently resides on 205/50/R17 Tyres, so would I need to change these to 205/45/R17 if dropping 20mm? Anyone in the know would be grateful for your advice.

Thanks in advance :)

To be honest you will struggle to notice a 20mm drop. I would go 30-35mm for a better stance thats not boy racer looking. You wont need to change the tyres either.

Thanks for your response, will look into 30mm / 35mm kits.

I would go for the Eibach kit which was available from Ford themselves. You might still get it from Ford online parts, failing that then there are outlets on ebay and places like Demontweeks stock them.

Hey,

Scour eBay as that is what I have been doing and there are Red, Black and Green as well as original Blue. I Even found a chrome with no colour... But nearly all are cheap imports from China. I have been told that some of the Ford Meetup's have suppliers selling there so maybe worth a go? Good Luck and let us know if you find one :)

2) Is there a mod for getting a courtesy light in the BACK of the passenger compartment? Ditto an extra light in the boot area?

Just going to wait and see what happens now....

I just had some led strips off eBay, wired into the existing boot light (one either side). Couldn't ask for more light!

Have you done a few modifications to your car? Or gone all out and made a load of modifications? Why not start your own build thread in the NEW Ford Projects and Builds section ( http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/forum/89-ford-projects-and-builds/?prune_day=100&sort_by=Z-A&sort_key=last_post&topicfilter=all ) and show off your motor and what you've done to your pride and joy :) maybe even get some inspiration on what to do next from looking at other peoples threads :).

OR

If you just want to discuss something to do with modifying why not post it in the NEW dedicated Modification Discussions section http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/forum/90-ford-modification-discussions/

Enjoy

Yes really would like this look in my car but don't know how to go about it, any ideas?

Id remove the existing gear gaitor and gear knob,

Cut out a few square's of cardboard and cut a hole in centre of one to fit gear knob through,

Then begin to create a template based on the movements of the gear stick,

It will take a few templates to master the finished item,

When you have a finished template, purchase a sheet of perspex and using a dremil cut out the design,

You could then wrap it or contact this gut to have it turned in to stainless steel.
