I'd recommend a hear shield/rain guard, but +1 for being an innovator, that's what the focus community needs, also, something about those wheels made it not look like a focus, in a good way! Welcome aboard!

Thanks for the comments guys, yeah when I get around to it I will attempt something with sheet metal or what not. I saw the otherday that someone made a rear diffuser, I'm guessing everyone here that has the rear lunch box delete has that bumper flap thing on the highway lol. I plan on making a template for that too sometime.

As for the RMM, this is the exact one I got http://www.corksport.com/awr-rear-en...daspeed-3.html I see people on here using the stock Mazda3 RMM, but even some people on those Speed3 forums say that they tend to fail or what not, so I just searched around and found that. It's basically a stock MS3 RMM with a solid bushing in the middle. I got the 70, the car does shake but its nothing serious its pretty light(like no interior rattles or any nonsense like that). The mount isn't hard too install and it does help with shifting like others say.

I've been pretty fail on my build thread but since the aftermarket community is starting to kick up, figured I'd come back and actually start some progress. Over the year I haven't done too much. I've installed a set of Rock block mud flaps, Blox shift knob, blox extended lug nuts and more recently the Turbo Tech Upper motor mount. I have a few things on order though! I just order the Injected Tune(Those Inject guys are awesome, I originally wasn't going to order because of UPS shipping and all but they were able to ship it via USPS for only 50ish bucks....Score!), ST replica wing, and I'm patiently waiting on the long tubes to come out. I'll update as these things come in. Here are some pics





The new mount is pretty rad, the car does feel like it's a go-kart with the extra vibration , but I don't mind (plus it'll most likely die down)Another plus is that I live in Canada and it came within 5-6 days, which is pretty quick!

I like what you've been doing with your Focus, especially the mud flaps

Thanks guys! I intend to keep this more up to date. Speaking of which, yesterday I finally finished my intake (before half of it was using the stock oem tube etc.) I bought another cold air intake of kijiji and did a few more cuts. Here is the finished product Here's all my left over material lol And of course, here it is in the car

Ah thanks^ Today I somewhat adjusted my gas pedal height. The gas pedal is fastened to the firewall by two 10MM bolts, after removing these bolts I disconnected the wire harness thing. I then added some washers behind and then reinstalled the gas pedal assembly. This did raise the pedal by about 5mm which I still think isn't enough (I like all the pedals to be at more or less the same height, especially for heal toe shifting). Within the coming weeks I'll most likely build some sort of bracket or something to help further lift the pedal to my desired position.

thanks for the welcome! I got a package in the mail today....Spoiler alert (pun intended)
It's a replica ST wing I bought off ebay for 200 shipped to my door, came painted black already so it was good to go.
Here's what the hatch looks like without the spoiler
And the final product!
