Yeah, but I like adding the Euro touch to my Focus. With a cougar swap, it'd feel too domesticated for me. If I could have it my way, I'd actually import a Focus from Europe (or Mexico), rather than build mines up. But then again, where's all the fun in "putting together the puzzle"?

personally i would go wide body!

theres a guy on ebay.co.uk that sells fiberglass replicas of the rs widebody. decently priced too.

And yeah, i read horror stories about f2 also. hopefully they have gotten better, or fired those employees that packaged them like that.

yeah i heard about that. but really i dont feel like paying a grand just for the kit. i dont have that much mony. so i think just piecing out a lip kit will do me good. hopefully the deal follows through with the JMS front and rear lip. and maybe ill get like svt or roush skirts?

Just go all European. You can be the second white hatchback to rock the Euro look in Hawaii. :P

You should go for the 98-01 look instead though. As for sideskirts, you should get SVT sides or just get the OEM sideskirts.

Another route is to get the RS edition replica front, SVT sideskirts, and SVT or RS edition rear and call it a day.

The Roush sideskirts hang down very low which could throw off the JMS front/rear lip look.

See if you can find out what company towed the car. Tow companies have their own yards with cars for parts. I found this out last week only lol. I found my friends totaled Protege from exactly 1 year ago!

Bah, ill just make my own clear third brake light with resin and a mold bwahahah.

haha. mines is apart of the body too. but luckily it didnt get jacked up too much. i took it to the body shop and the guy told me that its about 4 layers of metal so either they can do a cosmetic repair which involves pulling off the front layer and make it look nice, and pull out whatever they can with the next 3 layers. so it looks fixed because the out side is nice, but behind it its still damaged a little. or the other option is to just replace the whole skirt. which would have to be ordered from ford then the body shop would weld it on.

then he told me that a lip kit would probably be a better option. either pay to fix my car to look stock, or pay about the same to make it look a little more aggressive. hah

so im pretty sure im gonna be able to just rust proof it, and then just add the aftermarket skirts on to cover it up. dont know how well its gonna mount in that area, but im sure it wont make that much of a difference.

i need to find some svt skirts for cheap, wanna see if anyone has anything locally. anyone know?
