:lol:CrUziN4L said:There's one or two more than that....and i really doubt anyone off the major forums doing so only because 99% of the people have no idea of the RS, and if they are driving a focus and looking to mod they usually are more towards shows and that only ends in lambos and neon.
sick hood. custom?an RS conversion would cost from start to finish over 10 grand
from finding the sheet metal, to shipping to cutting and welding the RS rear quarter sheet metal, to paint etc
spoken from someone who owned a RS Replica and spoken from someone who knows the guy who did all the work and the costs
Yea, the RS interior I'm installing has one seat base from the RS (UK driver now my passenger side) and one seat base from an SVT (US driver's side). Having height adjust for both passenger and driver's side was worth it alone, lol.When you buy interior parts some pieces must come from other than the UK right hand drive stuff, headlight switch ,plastic trim around door handles holding power window switches, center council.you will need a drivers seat track from a SVT you must modify that but works great. The UK seat cushions can be switched over so the RS is facing toward the doors. I am in the process of installing my boost and air fuel gauges where the oil gauges are on the svts 12 hours in to them almost complete. Center council you can switch the start button with the build # button the holes are the same size underneath
^^ Are you building an OEM RS as well? I'm trying to keep track of where everyone is located that's building a widebody. I have the front RS liners, but the rear I've been reusing the SVT carpet ones. I bought some RS rear liners, but those and other parts are still waiting in the UK until I can maneuver shipping from my family there. So many details in these builds!I won the liners and he told me he would ship, then he found out how much it would be and "disappeared" for awhile. He never got a shipping quote for me, thus I still need the liners.
No, I have not seen the pics either.
I am doing a rear only conversion... Porsche inspired, 18x8 front wheels and 18x9.5 or 10" rear wheels. I have a set of rear RS quarters, and (2) RS rear bumpers. I have the Euro rear bumper foam and metal rebar. How I am going to tie in the OEM front to the rear? I don't know yet but I have OEM ZX3, SVT, and JMS side skirts sitting here. I am hoping the JMS skirts will flow, or maybe the OEM skirts can be modified to flow. SVT's are my last resort as I do not think they will flow.SVT2RS said:^^ Are you building an OEM RS as well?

It's almost depressing how many people are doing this now.is it criminal that i just bought 2 rs front bumpers, 2 rs rear bumpers, 2 sets of rs fenders, 2 sets of rs quarters, the rs wing assembly and the complete oem rs suspension for 3500 shipped? i think so... :evilgrin:
