Not my style. I woulda had to slam my car to make them work at all. and they had too much poke to them. Nice wheels, just not my taste.

Yeah, I remember when you tried them on your car. The 5-spokes look better on your car.

Haha. I don't have time right now. 10-13 hour work days 6 days a week don't exactly help when it comes to a project like this. I might possibly prep the car and do a test fit for the fronts today but it may not happen either.

Update from a couple weeks ago. I cleaned up and repainted the inside of my taillights again before the NYspeed.com meet and decided to move my signals down to the reverse light sockets.

Here's what I used for the wiring: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=65546

I had orange bulbs that fit inside the reverse sockets but didn't like how small they were and how they tended to get washed out in sunlight so I cut them out and used to the sockets that were left over from my front turn signals. They use the same bulbs as the brake lights and turn signals on the rest of the car. I had to hack the back of the housing to get them in but it's not the first hack job on these taillights. lol

Today marks the end of an era and the start of a new one as the Focus begins the slow transition towards a Euro/RS.

I will worn everyone that the car will turn into one of the most riced out cars you'll see on here because it will take some time to get everything in final order and painted while I'm still using it as a DD. So here's one last look before things start getting torn apart.

I'll patiently wait for it to become a great looking Euro inspired Focus. Ready to see another good build thread that will show tremendous progress! Good luck, and I'll be watching the thread.

Wow. That's a lot to live up too. lol

Just as a warning to everybody, this thread will be lacking in pictures temporarily do to the fact that my battery fell out of the camera yesterday when I was biking in the woods. I'm in the process of getting a new one but I doubt you'll miss much major action till it gets here.
