btw my car did a weird thing today. I had the cruise control set to 74, then it turned the cruise control off by itself and only the speedometer went to 0 for about 5 seconds, then the speedo went back to normal and I reset the cruise control. Anything to be worried about? What did it do? lol Mischevious Mikayla...lololol

I hope they respond! They had better. lol Yea. All gauges would go down to 0 (or to the very bottom, like the car was off) when I first got the car only when it was raining outside. It was weird. Then that wiring harness on the alternator broke. I replaced it, and it never did it since. I will see if maybe something is up with that wiring harness again. Just seemed weird. lol

Sooooooo news! I found alottt of stuff on ebay. Tim had better buy that euro rear, I may have found a euro front, and I am getting a grille. Oh and I bought the reverse light I needed for the other side of my bumper for $30. The problem is, I cant find the connectors anywhere! I found one one ebay, but its used and he doesnt ship to the US. I only found them from the site pyroinsa showed me. There about $30 a piece. :( Is there anyway I can use a different connector...or rig it up somehow? lol
You can get universal's at most autoparts stores. They just clip in the socket, so take a light in to size it up. I think they are under $10 for a pair

You found a right side reverse light for your euro rear.........lucky you. Still haven't found one. Sent an email to one place but they haven't responded. That was almost a week ago.

I will keep an eye out for another one for you! I got it on ebay.uk. There is alot of them on there for cheap, the trick is finding a worldwide seller. So you have to change the advanced search options to find one that is willing to ship international. Otherwise that company pyroinsa showed me in his build thread has them.

Found these that would work, but there not really my style. Ive never seen them before though if you wanna be different! lol

Not sure which side you need, but here is a left one. sold in a pair though. :(
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS...item43b41af6c0

This is a bajillion dollars...lol
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS...item416059c434

aha here is one! It even comes with a connector! This was actually about the same as mine. get this one if you need the left side. The right ones are usually harder to find. I needed the right one for mine.

What do I need for the spoiler btw? Paint wise? My friend has a sprayer, but I heard about some duplicolor black paint cans to use (from tim) that would work well. So I figured id pick up 2 cans of that, and a can of clear. anything else?
