I'm confusing you with those bad obsession boys.
wow, high praise
I don't have a battery isolator, although now you've mentioned it it might be a good idea...
The start of the wide arch conversion
Wide Arches, Major Surgery - The Flexus Episode 44 - Ford Focus Twin Turbo V8 Project Car Build
good progress and good work
Wouldn’t call it progress I just ripped half the car apart lol
'Tis but bodywork....
Fair play, as ever.
The rebuild begins
Focus RS Wide Arch conversion - The Flexus Episode 45 - Ford Focus Twin Turbo V8 Project Car Build
Why did you tig and not mig the holes?
because my mig is being a stuck up lil’ bish
It doesn’t behave at low current so I went with the tig, it also means I don’t have to grind away a lifetime of mig snob
Coming along nicely
Exhaust version 3
one day I’ll be happy with this!
What's all that about? Very shiny.
it’s a crab
It’s just the back end being redone as I was never truly happy with what I’d done previously, mostly because the exhaust exit on the side was going to change
Ah, a crab....
That clears that up...
36 minutes in.
Nothing to do with anything.
This is why I decided to change lol...
Spoilers for a few weeks time
Looks really good, but wasn’t it supposed to be a sleeper?
what part of this doesn’t make it a sleeper? It has to have an exhaust lol.
can’t get it out the rear, too busy back there
don’t see many fords with side pipes. But then again, never seen a focus with a V8
To be fair I’ve gone from 2 silver pipes to 1 recessed tip on show. And there’s going to be a side skirt on top of there too so it should “subtle” it right out when it’s done.
the noise is going to give it away more than anything lol
im onLy just getting into this. Gonna have to watch your vids from episode 1
This isn’t a car, your creating a monster Dr Frankenstein!
