I don't know how auto Recycling / Junk Yards work in the U.K., but in the states they have Pick N Pull Junk Yards for older cars where you pay a 1 Pound entrance fee, then you search for and remove parts yourself. The parts are a lot cheaper because the business doesn't have to pay an employee to strip a car, label the parts, then put them on a shelf.

So, after looking at your picture (NICE CAR!), I would suggest a rear disc brake conversion. In the states, I could get the entire rear disc brake setup off a car in a Pick N Pull Junkyard for approximately 75 pounds. The parts are obviously used, but if you get lucky, you can find a car with new(er) parts.

I like the rear spoiler on your Focus.
