    Did someone say Flat front RS2…………????

    I remember one at knockhill back in late 80s early 90s – had a cossie motor in it though. In those days i had a mkq Mex and a RSTurbo.

    Grunty-motor,

    Yeah it was flat fronted to preserve the nosecone and wings. Flat fronted in around 2009 I think it was.

    Currently going back to standard with nose cone, standard fishnet recaros etc but I am fitting a YB cosworth in its place! Engine and gearbox have been first fitted, new gearbox tunnel fabricated. I have a whole load of nice shiny new parts for it waiting aswell.

    Idea is to get the engine running then get it all back out again to do a bit fabrication on the shell, off to paint then final fit the engine with all the new bits on.

    Cheers

    Spoiler Gel inlays from DMB graphics in mid blue – not sure on these to be honest but will leave for now and see if they grow on me.

    A nice contrast shot between old and new. Not mines though. Storing my dad’s MK1 until his garage is sorted.

    Only other plans for the focus RS are a set of rally armor flaps purchased from the club shop. They arrived the day I left for Aberdeen so will be waiting for me coming home.

    Never fitted flaps before so hopefully they are straight forward enough. Have watched the videos on YouTube.

    Any tips??

    Would be good to hear some other people’s opinions, experiences and comparisons with their focus RS to previous and cars owned! Photos always welcome!!

    I think fitting the mud flaps will be quite straightforward its basic stuff that should be within the capabilities of most petrol heads. Biggest job will be jacking the car up and removing the wheels. I think you can do it without but a proper clean and decontamination of arches and wheels whilst you have them removed.

    Coastliner,

    Thanks mate. Looking forward to fitting them when I get home.

    I’ll get in about the arch liners when the wheels are off and get them spotless.

    Cheers

    Bobcat,

    Like a lot of petrolheads I have ocd when it comes to my pride and joy. One thing I have noticed that lets the car down a bit is how much the back box has tarnished even though it hasn’t done many miles. Maybe to do with heat or just general corrosion. Not sure if it would polish up or if anyone has tried?

    cheers
