    Default Ford Phokus - 2013 Makeover - Audio teaser

    Hey all. So, as stated in my noob thread, here's how my Focus is currently looking. There is more to come. Interior needs a retrim, engine needs some dress up, there is going to be some airbrushing on the roofbox and obviously sort out the stance

    Firstly, I'm going to throw up how it looks now and then I'll put up how it got to that stage









    And how it looks normally throughout the year with its roofbox




    Oh...and the natural camber

    And how it got there...

    Start....




    Middle and mods....




    (custom Magic Tree ftw!)








    Then....


    And dropped on lowering springs....



    And how it is now....

    Show plate


    Black and orange gel overlays front, back and steering wheel

    Aaaaaaand finally



    And my trick indicator mod :P
    Off:


    On:


    And the most recent mods:

    More audio FTW!

    Framework..


    Fleece/resin..


    (Can you tell what it is yet??)
    Trimmed..


    Fitted..





    Close fit

    Went round to a mates a few weeks back to go to the driving range and he started moaning about the wheels looking a state (to be fair, they were battered) so he managed to convince me (really didn't take too much effort) to get them ghetto refurbed. Soooo here's the results of our (well, mainly his) hard work

    Prepping:


    No pics of it sprayed gloss black but...here comes the Marmite bit




    Then...





    As you can see we also thought the caliper was pretty bland so we also painted that with a black splat

    Centre caps are also now on the car, black with orange Ford badge....

    Then coilovers, all red-rears, custom stickers (may soon be removed..) and roofbars happened..







    And the roofbox..


    Cheers,
    Jon

    Cheers guys. Its getting there. I'm contemplating the idea of air-ride but for now, I'm more than happy to stick with my coilovers

    I love your attention to detail, even on the air freshener! And the splatter stuff is cool.

    Anything with splatter on it looks like shit. The new wheels look alright though.

    Fair enough. I can appreciate all c&c's I know my car isn't to everyone's taste, but I'm enjoying it

    I did the splats to be different and to match the original sub and amp I had (colour scheme). I'll be running this pretty much as it is this year. Then when I get bored after this year's show season, the splats may go along with a new boot build. I love the colour of the car as it is, but I'm also contemplating a change of colour for next year too. I dunno, we'll see what happens

    Fantastic Focus! I love the current state and the roof box finishes it off nicely. How is it to live with? Do you daily it?

    Cheers dude. Yea its a daily. Only the odd scrape over speed humps every now and then Roofbox has been on since last August. Affects the fuel consumption a bit but is useful for shows when I can't put anything in the boot/trunk lol

    Thanks both. And Edwin I know haha. Will cost a fair bit. I'm hoping to get a nice bonus from work soon though. That'll either go towards a retrim or air. I'm actually leaning more towards a trim though over air to be honest

    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

    Thanks everyone I'll chuck a big update onto Focal Jet now guys *edit, just replied into the Stance forum under my old username random_hero

    Alex, the wheels are 17x8 with 195/40/17 tyres and 17x9 with 205/40/17's. The car sits roughly 80-90mm lower with room to drop more. I only really get scrubbing with a full car, but I'm going to get the arches rolled soon to solve that
