The mod bug is about to hit this guy hard, and I'd rather get this lip than the 3DCarbon kit...

Thank you Emanuel! Congratulations on your new toy, I hope it treats you well!

Downforce USA can be reached via Facebook, they have a few emails for different individuals but the FB pages are a good medium for communication.

I can't speak as to what their plans are regarding announcing this lip, but I haven't heard too much from them thus far. One Facebook page has a few pictures up (which I took, using my Focus as a model ) but that's all I've seen.

Their website (http://www.downforceusa.com/) is still undergoing work too, and I don't know when it'll be up. It has further contact information though.

Good! I don't really like the Mk3 3Dcarbon kit either.


Twenty, congrats on the awards for both you and your mom! You got a real clean ride

I really like the 3D Carbon rear valence for the hatch, but sadly the sedan's looks nowhere near as good in my opinion. If it did I'd probably grab one.

Thanks pyroinsa, that was a fun day and a really nice surprise! I was hearing lots of components on it, as was my mother on her TBird.

Do you know where I can order the rear separately from the rest of the kit?

I'd try looking around and checking with any local shops that stock aftermarket parts, see if any can order in 3D Carbon items. If not, perhaps contact them and see if they can sell one directly or point you in the direction of someone else.

Awesome thread, seriously great ideas, and I love how clean the car looks.

My family just got a 2012 SEL hatch to go along with my 2000 focus that we got brand new back in and th day. After seeing everything you've done I and how awesome its all turned out, I believe I'm gonna have my work cut out for me when I come back home from college this winter!

The internet is your best source for finding parts.

Thank you very much!

I work on the cars, adding and changing things according to what I like, looking to various 'groups' for ideas and inspiration. For example, my automotive magazine collection ranges from Modified to Performance VW to Car. I like to incorporate different touches here and there and keep the cars distinctly 'mine'.

Additionally, as always I try to keep the cars clean (in terms of dirtiness, not just appearance), not just for photos but for every day; it is my job, after all.

The SEL should be fun, congrats! You'll have a rare(r) model there in a few years.

Looking ahead, September 9th will be the last big local Show and Shine before the end of the season, and hopefully both cars will be able to show up to be shown again. That won't really leave me much time to make additional updates, but I do plan to keep the pace going over the winter months, at the very least stockpiling parts for spring.

Now that I'm back in town following a vacation, I was finally able to take the Focus out last night for a spin, I missed that.

I am also now able to start going through all of my photos, not just from the trip but from the show my parents and I were at the day before leaving. Here are a couple more from that, the little glass is the prize the Focus got for its category.
