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

Middle and mods....

(custom Magic Tree ftw!)


And dropped on lowering springs....

And how it is now....

Show plate

Black and orange gel overlays front, back and steering wheel

Aaaaaaand finally :D

And my trick indicator mod :P


And the most recent mods:

More audio FTW!



(Can you tell what it is yet??)


Close fit


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


No pics of it sprayed gloss black comes the Marmite bit

And finally...

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)

Then...coilovers happened :D

All red rears and showplate fitted

And how it sits now with colour-coded roof box :D

Sooo sorry about all that 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

Thanks for reading, I'm open to all feedback

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

Everything is cleanly done tho. Nice work.
