    I have j44ffo too lol used to be on my new focus but I’ll probably chuck it on the Flexus because the one in the Mercedes makes me laugh “km55ffs”

    :laughing:

    The megane is a saga in itself so many mods and custom bits I couldn’t even begin to explain. 2.0 turbo 6 speed is as far as I go lol

    I sold a Focos to a mate last summer - Mk1 Focus with bits of Sierra floorpan. It's running Sierra 4x4 mechanicals apart from the engine which is Scorpio Cosworth.

    It's surprising how much room there is in the engine bay until you think that you're putting an engine where an engine and gearbox used to go.

    The Focus has a 1/4" longer wheelbase than the Sierra so props and whatnot for mine were all standard from the Sierra.

    I was tempted with Sierra floorpan but decided not to bother in the end.

    I wanted to keep the interior standard so that meant minimal tunnel and I wanted to use the more modern suspension setup on the focus rather than the dates Sierra stuff

    Mine had to accomodate the MT75 with it's attached transfer box so there was more to cram in the tunnel than with a 2wd setup. All it lost was the gearstick/handbrake surround so with a leather gaiter for the handbrake and a P100 gearstick surround it all still looked factory.

    Of course the guy who bought it is going racing so all that had gone last time I saw it.

    Always wanted a single seat Elva - gearstick between your knees and prop beneath your backside. Saw a TV programme once and a guy said he once let a bloke drive his and the guy came back saying it had no brakes - he'd been pressing hard on the nose of the starter motor housing rather than the brake pedal.

    I require some opinions if you guys are willing to participate...

    which badge would you prefer replace the focus one on the back of the car currently?...

    Flexus 1.png Flexus Dash.png

    heres the standard one for reference

    Focus.png

    Ive kept the standard font where possible and the things ive had to make up (because theres no such thing as a focus font)

    Pick one please...

    1 or 2

    Cutting the corner on the e is a direct copy of the c in the original focus badge
