That is awesome, That's what I've always though of for a roof scoop, have one but also have the vents there to let the air through or not. Can't wait to see that installed, please take plenty of pics.

Thanks, I will let you know if I need anything. (right now I think I am only missing the rear quarter mouldings and the Front fender to bumper brackets.)



The bigger one on the left is Focus RS specific



If you come across either of these parts I would be interested!



It will be paint matched. The only part I might leave in carbon will be the roof scoop I might run (don't worry its small and functional) and the front lip.





This one is painted white but it would come in carbon.
Did you try capaldi racing in Michigan?

I need to order a new rear subframe from them so I will probably ask when I call. The only thing they might have is the winglets that connect the bumper to the fenders.

May be too late but this is what the Euro front mounts look like;

I know, a few pics back I have a picture of the new plates which will be welded on and made to look like the euro plates, the plates in this pic are already gone.

A majority of the RS stuff is already being discontiued which is why it is so hard to finish these builds. Thanks for the comments!

Next on the list:

Fitting and welding front and rear bumpers
Welding Strut tower Braces
Welding engine mount brace
Creating roller stands which will be mounted to front and rear bumper locations so the shell can be moved outside for sand blasting.

Autopower Roll Cage just arrived I had them custom make it so that is has everything but the door bars which I could always add later.


Holes are drilled in my new bumper plates so I needed to mock up everything again last night so I can position them, cut out the centers, and then tack weld them in.






Bumper seems to be pulling a bit forward yet and I want to make sure everything fits correctly so this might take a day or two for fitment but I would like to have the bumper at least tack welded by the end of the weekend or monday at the latest.
