don't get your hopes up just yet....haven't set any fiberglass in the molds....but these are my concept images I whipped up in photoshop....couple different wheel options...

Stock RS wheels, painted gunmetal (probably won't be able to get a set, and they are 18x8...I want wider)



17x9 SC replica Mustang wheels in 4x108



Other wheel I'm considering but haven't PS'd is 03 cobra reps in gloss black.....same basic 5-spoke pattern as the SC's, just they are slightly concave right to the enge where the SC's have a lip....so It's basically a decision on whether or not I want wheels with a lip/dish.....and the comparison against the RS stock wheels is sufficient to make that decision. Open to opinions on this as well....

took most of the front clip off.....I'm saving a step here becuase I previously already modified the steel bumper to fit the lower profile euro bumper :)

I'll get the sideskirts and fenders off sometime later this week.

Got the sideskirts and fenders off today, and confirmed my suspicions(sp?) that this car was in at least one wreck unreported to carfax....



Passenger fender is a Keystone replacement part....

Carfax and their clones appear to be less and less useful for determining minor collision history, as insurance premiums and penalties for collision damage repair continue to increase, many drivers pay for the repairs themselves, without reporting them to their insurance carrier. I have bought two cars from Carmax in the last six years, and have discovered, after the fact, that "clean" Carfax type reports notwithstanding, each one had evidence of collision damage repairs. But I digress, sorry. I'm subscribed, and await each progress report with great anticipation. I have a red SVT, and wish I had the time, money and dedication that you and other replica builders have shown to the rest of the Focus community. Thank you.

Thanks everyone....the build is going to bounce around alot becuase I'm simultaneously using this build to design/re-design some of these parts.....such as a CF splitter, RS-inspired CF wing (not exact replica, but based on the RS wing), CF foglight bezels, etc...

I'm going to be making the prototype for the splitter over the weekend and part of next week....I'll post up when I've done so :)
