It's been a long time in the making but, my Focus project is starting to take shape.
You have to find the right person to take on a project like this because this guy has turn pile of crap into sema art.
Only got the wing and the hood to do and I should have her back in 2 weeks.
The rear bumper was designed for a ZX3 and also flared out, so I've only got 10-15mm to the rear tyres.

And before someone PM asking me where can I buy this kit from, I wouldn't bother because any of these bodykit I have seen for sale over the years just don't fit at all and all the custom brackets and the cutting the front bar is just a load of Bull[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]*.
You will need the carbon fiber insert for the huge wing, there's some custom work to be done and if you think it's going to stay on glass your kidding yourself.
I have thought about making molds but, I would need like 15-20 orders and even then the body shop guy doesn't really want to do it....lol

The body kit is done now and I can't beleive how well it's all turn out from a pile of crap to a sema art.
I don't have the money to get the body kit painted but, at least it's all done.

Next week it's going to get the fuel setup done ( private spece so won't be posting) with battery box and race sit and maybe roll cage.













Here is the front bumper done, I love the extra down force.
Just waiting on the hood now.

Thanks for the nice comment so far.
Once everyone see what's been done they'll understand why it's taken so long on this project.
The cnc shop has told me the custom alt bracket and water pump housing is done all that's left is the CFM 65mm tb to fit on the FR manifold and then it's time to build this bitch.

You know you are going to be hating yourself when you accidentally hit a curb that is slightly higher than your front bumper. It doesn't take much to destroy fiberglass. But it does look good for what it is.

Really like how wide it is, awesome project
I love the WRC Focus 2003-05 model and I can't beleive this is happening, I'm the only person in my country to have this body kit.

The rear bumper was flared out for a ZX3, so to make this fit wasn't eaay.
It took most of 1 day to put 4 screw, 2 in each wheel arch, 4 more where you open the rear boot lid and 2 bolt at the bottom of the bumper.

AS much as I want to show this off to everyone on the road, I don't think main roads will let me put rego on this car.
We have hooning law in my country, like if you have a NOS kit on your car and you don't have the bottle, your a danger on our road.
I built this for drag racing and hill climb and with all the money tie up in this Focus, it's safer on the track and not the street.


It's going to be a beautiful car. Wish I could do work like that!
thank you.
This is why you take it to the professional.
There's $12,000 on this body and paint alone .

I get the front bumper, huge wing, fuel rail and strut brace back on thursday.
Brought 4 tire jacks today
