You did all of those rivets with a hand rivet gun? You've got patience. All i ever use now is Air/Hydraulic. 1 of mine was $40 from Harbor Freight (get the Extra Warranty just in case) and it works great. My other one was like $400 from Snap On.

Progress looks great!

Hey Hurtin,
I stumbled on your post. I have a RS here in the States. Tim at Capaldi knows me as I purchased two new front and rear bumpers and anything else RS for insurance in case someone hits me while Im going down the road.( sorry for drying up all the remaining RS parts in The States):.... Im watching your build and I can foresee a problem you havent though about yet. My RS uses different rear trailing arms and bushings than a standard focus which moves the track out to the same width as the front. Your car has the width of a SVT, much narrower than a RS. Your fenders and rear 1/4s are going to look really funny without the correct track....get your wallet and Skype ready numerous calls to a UK dealer. Also transmission is different in RS ( bellhousing is larger for AP clutch and Quaife). Axles are different too. If you need any dimensions, pictures I can help.
Ken

We have a shed load of these in the uk.
It's just awesome watching the hard graft going into building one :)

I love the step by step pictures, and the fact that it's being done by a proud owner and not just chucked in a bodyshop like most cheque book cars :)

spent most of the day yesterday and most of the day today working on it. Got both rear quarters 100% ready for high-build primer-surfacer.







Also mocked the front bumper and passenger fender up so I could "flatten" the nose like I did on the other side....



Also, my paint gun arrived :)
