Those wheels will look GREAT as well as work well for the "Rally" look & planned use.

Good progress, along with finding some spring doughnuts that'll work

Add the info. on those when you get 'em in, maybe over in the brakes & suspension area if you could. Raising isn't as common as lowering, but there are fewer good answers on doing it. (Special order doughnuts from Europe for example, don't know if those are even avail. currently)

Cheers

The company is called mr. Gasket, if you do an ebay search look up "ford focus coil spring spacer" lots of options come up.

I also just bought a rear disc conversion kit for 350$ off ebay, cant wait to get all these parts on my car and be dialed.

Any suggestions for mud flaps?

Good build thread. Interested to see how those spacers work out.

Got my brakes in the mail, theres a guy selling complete set-ups on ebay for 350!!! however they are from midwest cars so the parts are RUSTED TO HELL

A few hours prep work and i got them up to par today, posted some before and after pics. I can tell by markings and condition that one is definitely from an older SVT, but otherwise theyre good. I just need to find a write up for install and if not... make one.

Rear spoiler is getting painted on monday!

Ive had that avatar forever, not a member.

Thanks guys, team dynamics wheels are on their way from england, coil spring spacers have been ordered. Think one of my refurb hubs needs a new bearing... Bleh!

STILL cant figure out fog light wiring, despite having stock pigtails, fuse, and switch plus a few pin splices according to various threads. Might settle for a less elegant direct line to the battery with fuses.
