Problem with Rear fenders is I wasn't able to find them in NA, so I had to custom fabricate them. they have the same width as the RS. I do have the RS side skirts.

Winter time seems to be over, temperatures are not subzero, so we were ready to install the front fenders yesterday. Unfortunately the bumper did not arrive until friday so we have to wait for next weekend to install it.

To the two guys who did the RS conversions, I need you help. I have an '06 ST sedan. I want the RS wheels, but from what I understand they need fender modifications to fit. What do I need to do to the suspension and breaks and fenders and shit to get those wheels to fit? I got a little money to burn, but I need to know what to burn it on.

Do they make AWD Duratecs in Europe, like for the Mondeo, that I can get a tranny from? And I'll be getting so Cossie parts to add to my engine after I get the supsension and shit set up.

Because your foci's front is totally different from the old ones you cannot install the fenders. You would change the radiator supporter, both spurs running on the two sides, front lights, bumper, hood, etcetcetc...

lot of work to do.. and at least few thousand usd..

you can fit the rs wheels but the weels will be out from the fender by one inch or a bit more. go to a local workshop and ask them whether they can make your fenders wider by 1 inch or not..

about awd, forget, the house of the 4x4 mtx is totally different for the zetec, you would have to change the engine and a lof...

but... you have duratec, check at volvo's the new s40 is on the same plate as the foci is..

What if I did an SVT swap like that one guy on FF. He has a ZX4, newer style. Did a complete swap. What if I did that, but used RS front fenders instead of SVT versions. Will the rear fenders fit? Could I buy the F2 RS widebody cut, and just fold and tuck the fenders behind it?

Do the suspension and steering need to be changed at all.

F2Focus makes a widebody RS kit for the 2005/2006 model years . . . just buy theirs and it will function with 18x8" OZ Records (RS Wheels)

thanks for the help, but I already looked at those wheels. Unfortunatley, they're not the same, spoke design is sightly different, but they're 1 inch narrower than RS wheels. And I like the fact that if I get RS wheels, after some fender mods, I know they will fit, cuz of corrct offset, plus I just love the looks. I think I'll be getting the RS centercap with red lettering instead of blue though.

Also, the widebody kit from F2 just adds width to the fenders, it still regueres that the orignal fenders be trimmed, from what I understand.
