This is just the beginning! My Ford Focus RS Red Edition project car now has a totally new look interior thanks to the work of Prototrim. To get this full overhaul underway the first thing to target was to fix the flaws of the cheap interior, and how better to do that than a fresh start with red and black Alcantara and leather – what do you think of how it’s turned out?
The plan is for this to become quite a major project, starting off with cosmetic and aero parts while the engine is going through the run-in before moving onto dramatically raising the horsepower. With exterior parts to follow, the immediate place to start was to fix two of the most widely reported problems with the mk3 Focus RS; the quality of the interior and the height of the front seats.
With the model being a derivative of the base model Ford Focus, the interior is as such quite full of cheap plastics and doesn’t have a particularly premium feel to it. To overhaul this, Prototrim worked on retrimming the seats in the front and the rear, the door cards and top rolls, a new custom dash topper working with Central Scanning, and even small parts like the arm rest and gearshift gater. http://www.prototrim.com
The second generally reported concern is the height of the front seats, and a fix for that comes from JCR Developments, offering lower seat frames to adjust the height and rake of the front seats. http://www.jcr-developments.com/ford/product/mk3-focus-rs—super-low-seat-frames-(car-set)
Next is going to be a dramatic change to the exterior with the installation of the full Ventus Veloce carbon fibre aero kit! This will includes parts such as the bonnet, grille, fog lamp inserts, splitter, lower lip, side skirts, rear wing and diffuser as seen at Dub Customs ahead of the install. https://www.ventusveloce.com/collections/mk3-focus-rs
This is just the beginning as we head towards the full project!
Thanks for watching, Tim
