Hi guys thanks for the feedback!

Since posting this i have recently refurbished the alloys and got them painted anthracite, raised the car slightly as was lending the car to a friend for a few days (they fly over speedbumps! lol), i am planning on getting the windows tinted, front 2 30% and the rears 40-50% just a nice oem looking tint (ofcourse leaving the windscreen lol) I am also highly considering getting the black headlight units (projectors) or if i can get my hands on genuine ST headlight units, as for colour coding i was thinking about it or even taking the door strips of the side, but i think im going to just leave them as i am worried the left over glue etc wont come out and the colour difference wont buff out.

 

Photo of the alloys refurbed (pic to come of them on the car soon)

I have had my focus lowered on 40mm lowering springs all round and it looks nothing like this? Why is this?

Give it a few days to settle. It's guaranteed that it will never be lowered fully till the weight of the car will make it compress and drop a bit more.

ah ok will do, just thought it would look like the picture of mateys focus but the wheel arch gaps on mine are still a lot bigger so doesn’t look lowered at all at the moment. P.F.A - mine after 40mm lowering springs.

Paint the rear drums with some hammerite smooth finish silver 👍

I sure do, just didn't want to hog the thread 😅 here's the pictures:

I've also painted the spacer section of the front discs, 

Two factors are important: 

1. The hammerite must be "smooth finish" not "hammered finish" because it will look all pitted like it's been hit will a ball point hammer.

2. It's important when masking and cleaning to ensure you don't paint the face of the hub, also not to remove the "copper greece" from the face of the hubs as it's purpose is to prevent the alloy from sticking to the hub which if it gets stuck can be a nightmare to beat the wheel off the hub after the nuts have been removed.

My full five year build thread is here there's plenty of mods and pictures;

Indeed....there's no way that's on 40mm springs unless he's filled the footwells with sandbags! :laugh:
