So the time came to change the wagon so I stripped a lot of the modified parts off to make some money towards it replacement!
First the Bumper, Skirts, bonnet and lights!

Then the wheels! :(

Here are new and old estates together!


Here are a couple of pics of my new Focus and the little bits I've done!





Got a couple of mods under my belt already but I'm sure the wanted list will grow!
DeTango'd rear lights.

DeTango'd mirror indicators

LED PuddleLights

Smooth Rear Wiper

Orange and Black Steering Wheel badge and 2 Spokes of steering wheel carbon wrapped!

The LED rears are a subtle change to the standard option lights!
Fitted an LED Reverse bulb.

Also fitted Number Plate LEDs from my old Focus.

Decided to change to LED sidelights.
LED Vs Normal bulb

LED matches Xenon better

Both LED Sidelights in!


After abit of a play!

Given him a good wash and polish!


Had a go a wrapping the Stereo surround and switch panel to match the steering wheel spokes! Just got to do the Garage door and centre console now!

Looks great! Towards the end, your old wagon was looking awesome, especially with that ST170 bumper! Your new one looks nice too, excited to see what you do with it

Nice job on the vinyl wrapping!

So I got some alloys cheap with decent tyres on!
New Vs Old

Then Titan had a wash and positioned in the sun to show his colour and new shoes off!

Think the colours go quite well together.

The wheels and color on the new one compliment eachother well. I still like your old estate more though. Good taste man.

Cheers Mate! The old one turned out ok but hopefully I'll be able to do things to the new one to make it better!
As the snow has decided to give us the weekend off I decided to take the plunge and try to wrap the rear diffuser! After fighting with it for a little while I'm reasonably happy with it.

So after wrapping the diffuser decided to have a go at the Chrome Boot Handle.

And a pic of the 2 together.

Next on the list is the Bonnet strip but have been pointed in the direction of a cheap one already wrapped.

Decided to cheat and buy an already wrapped bonnet lip. Unfortunately it's a copy part that has been wrapped so fit isn't perfect but pretty happy with it!
So it's gone from Chrome lip,

To no lip,

To Carbon Wrapped lip!

Thought I'd have a go at doing the fog light rings.

Today saw the standard titanium bumper being swapped for an ST one. I'm pretty chuffed with how the front is looking now!
