It would take some major body work, but it could be done, cause they molded sedan lights on the yellow and silver FR200's.

So you want basically a 2-door Focus station wagon?
Nice idea - don't think it's been done before. Technically, it could be done, with some VERY labor intensive sheet metal fabrication in the quarter panel area. You could use the stock wagon quarter glass, but you would have to make something up to fit in the approximate location where the back 2/3rds of where the rear side door would normally go (keep in mind your ZX3 doors are longer that the front doors of the wagon). Maybe someone has photochopped something like this, or could help you out that way. I've got a wagon, so I could at least get you a side-view photo for you, then paste it on top of a photo of yours....

Also - the skill that would be required for something like this would only be found at a top-notch fabrication (read: custom) fabrication shop.

This is how they should have sold the ZX3
