Do they still sell the rs kit?
 
Just like the title says. So they still sell the focus rs body kit? I need wider wheels and havent really found fender flares that i like and ive always really liked the rs kit. So does anyone know if you can still find it anywhere?

search for my build thread.....but make sure you have a lot of time to kill before reading it all....lol

besides that, there's GPworks or whatever over on FJ that bought the old molds from F2 and is slowly putting those parts back into production.....

^^ Truly an epic build thread, well worth the read, even it you aren't contemplating an RS conversion.

GpWerks is re launching the old f2 urethane kit. They say they;ve addressed some issues as well.. fitment issues the original molds had.. they are very slow to launch tho... they just updated their website with the side skirts... keep in mind this is a replica kit..

and hurtinfocus will be making molds soon :D im waiting to see both end results to see which way to go.

The GP replica kit uses flares for the fenders. The actual RS used flared steel fender panels and would cost you $$$$ to get. Hurtinfocus has an awesome build thread and worth the read. He may end up having fiberglass versions of the original panels available at some point. Could be a cost effective alternative to actual RS panels.

actually to be honest id he happy with just some rs flares that i could put on my car or what i really want is some bushwacker round fender flares for my car but when i called bushwacker they said i had to find a vehicle that they make them for that would work for my application. they could not find it for me just giving them the measurements. not sure why. but oh well. anyone know what truck has the same size wheel wells as a focus?

I have molds for 80% of the RS kit already done. All I have left to mold is the wing(which I've modified to retain stock 3rd brakelight), front fenders, and sideskirts. I bought some damaged OEM RS sideskirts in the UK and have them coming with some other parts that will be shipped sometime in march. I'll have a FULL kit for RS conversions available by mid-late april. right this moment, I can do front and rear bumpers and rear arches.... I build my car as a testament to the quality and acuracy of my products....my build thread will tell it all.

were you able to get your fenders painted before winter hit? Get any rubber put on those imola's yet either? Looking forward to seeing the finished product at SiF, going to be taking plenty of pictures [:)]

I purchased REAL oem RS fenders, planning on fitting them to verify good fitment, then mold them, then make new fiberglass ones, then paint the new fiberglass ones before SIF....and I still haven't put rubber on the Imolas yet...I don't want to put brand new tires on them until I figure out final suspension height and alignment....having trouble finding proper size used tires at the moment...
