Hi everyone! For those who don't know me, I have a 2003 SVT Focus that will soon be getting a body conversion to the Mk1 RS! [:D] Here is my car just before heading to Carlisle a month ago:



And this is a concept of what it will ultimately look like!



One of the major things holding me back is not having a decent set of 18" wheels to install once I do the bodywork... however, fifteen52 is holding a Photoshop contest and the winner gets a free set of 18x8.5 fifteen52 Tarmac wheels! This is what they look like:



And what they could look like once installed on my car:



But I need your votes to make it happen! One of the plus sides for everybody is that if I win, my set of wheels will be drilled to 4x108, and with enough interest, they can make our bolt pattern a regularly-offered option! [headbang]

Here's how to vote: first, go to fifteen52's Facebook page and "Like" their page here: http://www.facebook.com/fifteen52

Second, click on my entry and "Like" that, too: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150233395733440&set=a.10150233389898440.329785.271545148439

Here is what my entry looks like:


And that's it! The contest ends at the end of Monday and I could really use everybody's help... I'm in third place at the moment (out of over 400 entries!!!). Thank you for your help! [thumb]

Isn't this something you have been working on for years?

I remember seeing your concept photo a long while back.

Good luck with getting the wheels.

That's right... the very first RS part I bought was the front upper grille in '06, and started collecting all of the conversion parts in '07. Now I have nearly everything I need: bumpers, sideskirts, fenders, quarterpanels, undertray, wheel-well liners, a few carbon fiber pieces, and a host of trim pieces, lights and mounting brackets specific to the RS, including front and rear crash bars. The wheels are the last major pieces I need, then it's off to the body-shop! [:)]

July '07 (I received the front bumper at this time, too):



December '07 (Euro washer tank, rear bumper lights, fender sidemarkers):



February '08:





July '08 I had the steering wheel re-wrapped in the RS pattern, but with red perforated leather and a "blackwood" center indicator at the top:



January '09 I received the front lower grille:



May '09 I got the rear bumper, mounting bracket, crash bar and crash foam. Not pictured is the wheelwells I also received:





November '09 I finished the doorpanels in red perforated leather, too:



May '10:



January '11:



February '11 I got some parts powdercoated, and got the Euro fuel door:





April '11 I finally finished the rear panel inserts:



Not pictured sometime in early 2010 (or maybe late '09, I can't recall), I received one of the last sets of RS sideskirts as well. It's been a heck of a long time coming! LOL

You better freaking win this. I went through all of the other photos, and yours has the most character and uniqueness to it.

LOL thanks Ray... unfortunately at the moment, two of the entries in album #2 have more votes than mine. And at risk of sounding petty, I think they're not really that good, they just have a lot of friends. :x

Voted! If you win, and if I ever get to see your car then I get to touch one of the wheels.

I'm "like" number 190.

The VW with over 280 likes isn't even a good photoshop. That's really frustrating. Keep on whoring, FF can do this!

I also helped a little by posting a comment on one of their home page posts :p
