Some time ago, around feb i decided to buy myself a run around car, had
been using my focus as a daily driver for the last eight years. now with the
price of petrol an all, it's become very costly driving her daily.


so started the hunt for a run around car, always liked the focus so was
pretty sure i wanted another one. and then i found this little beauty on
ebay;





the company where great and even delivered her to mine,
looking a little sorry for herself



okay so she needed a little bit of work but was a bargin price. 1.6 x reg
auto ;-( but only done 30K

work began:



drivers side chasis leg was 6inch shorter than it should be, plus totally
wrong angle




some of the scraped parts







at the start i was planing on putting it back to total standard form.
then kinda got a little carried away i'll admit,

final out come:









new mk1.5 whole front end, bodykit, 17" mp3 alloys and full st170 half
leather interior.
still got some little bit to do but now road legal again ;-)

the car isn't as wonky as looks but my drive way is ;-)

And this would be the daily driver the estate is taking over from:
own her for 8 1/2 years now, over which some major changes have taken
place. some shocking ones looking back. but loving the final outcome so
far. this is by no means the end for her, now having a another car for daily
driving work etc i can focus on this again. body work is starting to show its
age now, plus got alot of plans for her which are now possible as i dont have
to worry about getting places. will take a while to do due to funds but watch
out for her in the future ;-)

with old front grill





















NOW my fav part ;-)



i know it's not the cleanest bay in the world, but i use this car alot!

Hello drunkin monkey
the rear bumper extension is this one

http://www.espdesign.co.uk/images/pic_750/F-Rieg_b.jpg

with the 2 dividing bars cut out and smoothed over. to be honest this back bumper will in fact be coming off my car soon


i used to have KW coilovers but was far to stiff for my sort of roads, country
roads and track suspension dont work to well. in the pictures i'm currenty
sitting on standard focus RS suspension.

the front bumper i found on ebay from polland, side skirts are wing west
items which again i totally smoothed out.

any more questions happy to answer [headbang]

I actually like the silver Estate better than the dark blue one. That silver one is gorgeous. Is there a stigma in Europe with driving a Focus? I guess around here it is, A Focus? those suck! It seems like over in Europe they are respected more. With that beautiful ST over there.

Nice work on the Estate, the lines look really clean. I'm hoping to do something like that to my wife's soon. The hatch, though, is wicked slick! I love the way you smoothed the lines by filling the hatch and removing the door handles. Gotta love that two-toned interior, too. Where did you get that bonnet for it?
