Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Been customising my focus


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, been slowly changing my focus from standard to custom, making it a unique car I'm calling "Ghia Black" 😂

Just would like opinions/suggestions to improve 😊

Painted the standard Ghia wheels black, changed stereo.

does anyone know a decent place to get badges? I want to add the text "Black" to the tailgate under the word "Ghia"

I can never understand why plain black wheels,  they just look like someone nicked the trims unless really close up :unsure: now protector trim and coloured centre caps however would break things up considerably

There's loads you can do to customise your car... Vinyl wrap, lower springs, new heater controls... Have a browse through some of the build threads for inspiration (my Focus, Eve, has black wheels - ignore the haters!)

Theres also a build thread here:

That's fitted, will post one with them working later :)

Looking good,

Do they dim automatically when you turn in parking lights ? 

If not then you will need one of these auto dimming relays to keep things road legal http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302011401563

One of the mods does them I  think,  @GingerFlame I'm 99% certain, but not seen him for a while he might be on holiday or something, drop him a pm :smile:

Those DRL's look good, was it a tricky job to wire them in?? Will probably follow a Lenny guide if he has one on DRL's.

Very easy actually, the relay has + & - to battery, + & - to drls and one white wire to headlight to allow the dimming of the drls when you turn the headlights on. Took me about 20 minutes :)

I changed the rear registration plate, inertia lights, and floor well bulbs, and also the clock and climate control leds's on my ST170 looked really good, have also seen people change the leds in electric window switches. 

Cheap and easy, saying that, im comfortable with a soldering iron.

On newer cars that report bulb failure, you probably want to get CANBUS error free bulbs.
