karbine's Grandad Mobile

Introduction

Morning!
Thought I'd may aswell start a thread on here seems though I'm picking up the modding bug again now i'm having some spare time and that.

I got my Focus 2001 1.8 TDDI LX last Month, it's in smokestone grey.

First thing I did was a noobie detail

My plans are OEM alloys power coated black, lower on eibach springs and shocks, Going for a subtle dark theme.

There are a few things to be sorted with the car, there are a few knocks and dents around that can be pulled out, some are photographed. And also some rusting at the bottom of the o/s rear door which can be solved when I get a proper day I can work on it :). Got a few tips and hints as to how I can resolve it.


Thanks. Dan

When I first got the car:
