Focus Project

COLLECTION
This is the day I collected it





STANDARDISING
First thing I did was sell the genuine morrettes


And fit a set of standard mk1.5's




Next came a new bonnet.
Shame I couldn't run like this all the time


Much Better


Bought a standard mk1.5 front bumper then


Ripped the side skirts off to reveal the damage


Looks a totally different car already


Then came a standard mk1 rear bumper

MODIFYING TIME

Stage 1

Then came the new wheels. 17 x 7 Wolfrace Street Octane.


6k HID kit


Volt gauge in custom speedo surround


The Bishop smoothing the front bumper


Single din stereo conversion sprayed in Frozen white, white painted heater rings




Next came fitting of the coilovers, strut brace and all new bushes - Coilovers are FK AK Street




Doors smoothed and partly painted


Street modding at it's finest Smile


All in matt black, with temp pro race 1.2's on it Smile


WORK IN PROGRESS STICKER


3/4 sized numberplate


Time for a new dash


Dark smoke window tints - fronts where taken off after ths picture


So the plan was to finish the bodywork and get the car painted for Mod Nats 2011, but the show was getting closer and closer and the goal was slipping further away. So The Bishop came up with an idea............

Stage 2

So we decided on new wheels and to wrap the car Smile

Collected my new wheels and had Fred @FutureShock Audio spray them frozen white

18 x 7 BSA Bullets



Half way through wrap - Thanks to Ade @ CEGUK for supplying the vinyl


Front bumper and sill left



3 days before mod nats. Tuck away in a garage having the roof wrapped.


Wrap complete - Thanks to The Bishop and Jemma for all the hard work.



Start of the advertising



2 days before mod nats my interior arrives - Thanks to AlexBoy!
ST170 interior, custom stitched and embriodered with 2 headrest screens


Stayed like that for a while.

Carbon wrapped speedo surround


Then the changes began again...................

Stage 3

Depo ST170 headlights - DTM cup mirrors - Standard sized plate


Whats Claypole doing here?


Off comes the wrap!!!!!!


Now I see this picture and I love it, but when I see it in red and white I like it as well.......

Fully sprayed satin black - Thanks to Claypole



On holiday


Then came the next part. After driving 6 months on 3 buckled wheels I was glad to see this site at 8am one morning Smile



18 x 8 Focus RS Mk2 replicas - Best mod I have ever done






Decided I wanted to do something that would make me stand out for the WelshFord vs FastFord shoot so had The Bishop wrap my roof for me...



Bit more advertising Very Happy





Black double din stereo surround - Black heater rings - Standard black gear knob


As it stands now......

TIME FOR STAGE 4 - WATCH THIS SPACE Very Happy

THERE ARE SO MANY PICTURES I HAVE MISSED IN EACH STAGE, JUST GAVE A QUICK GLIMPSE OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST YEAR. IT HASN'T BEEN EASY BY ANY MEANS, FEW PROBLEMS, AND A FEW HISSY FITS BUT I AM HERE NOW!!!!
