Hmmm...another V-6 powered Focus!
Maybe time to step up my game!
If you decide to go with factory gauges the Cougar gauge cluster fits in the Focus location and will work with the V6.

You should find some nice wide, low offset wheels to put under those arches I like the OZ's but you have so much room now to go with some really sweet wheels.


That motor looks sweet under the hood, bummer about the laws not letting you use the cosworth though

Thanks for the tip. Thats what we will try now, and the Cougar gauge is very cheap :)

Yeah a bit sad about that Cosworth engine but in the end the performance wont be any different. Both engines have the same horses inside so no biggie. Would have been more interesting thought :)

About that OZ's: Yeah theres other nice wheels too but thoose OZ Rims is all I ever wanted. Tastes are different :)

Well not really, I work 6 days a week and my friend is abroad for work like 4 days. So if we get lucky we get some spare time at the weekends to work on the ride.

We are building it almost a year now.

Wonderful Build.

Thanks for sharing it with us

It takes real dedication to a project to modify a body in metal, and taking on a complete drivetrain swap is even more daunting.

Best of luck completing this, between you the fab/ mechanical skills are awesome.

Cheers!
