Focus "More Door" - Cleaned in Progress...
 
Hey folks. As you can see, I'm new to the site and from Wales, UK. I've done a fair bit to my car. Its a 1.6 Zetec Focus, 2001 model. I'll post up a brief history of mods to where it sits currently, so sit back and enjoy [woot]

Went round to a mates a few weeks back to go to the driving range and he started moaning about the wheels looking a state (to be fair, they were battered) so he managed to convince me (really didn't take too much effort) to get them ghetto refurbed. Soooo here's the results of our (well, mainly his) hard work

Prepping:

As you can see we also thought the caliper was pretty bland so we also painted that with a black splat

Centre caps are also now on the car, black with orange Ford badge:

And Colour-coded 8-) All handles, side strips, boot handle, boot lock and washer jets (I've yet to see another this colour fully colour-coded)

Sooo sorry about all that [sleep] Anyway, show season here is nearly over and I'm really wanting a new set of wheels. So I've decided I'm going to start saving up and hit next year hard with stance and dished wheels. Drop the car a bit and dish...mmmm [hihi]

Thanks for reading, I'm open to all feedback [headbang]

Interesting to see you went with the black orange theme considering you have the light tundra exterior.

Everything is cleanly done tho. Nice work.
