Optispart's Ford Focus BLOG!


Well here is my new blog for my new car Ford Focus 1.6LX, still got the micra atm, need it sold tbh :p

well i bought the car for £200, V reg(2000) 80,000 BARGAIN and it cost me £90 to MOT in the form of a new horn and new reg plates, there are a few dents, which is my first port of call. I have a few plans for this car so far, ill keep the blog updated. Cheers for looking!

Couple of pics of the car.







I began work on gettin the major dent out of the rear, ill post pictures up of my progress so far.

Very nice, my other half has a 2.0 Ghia focus, cost a bit more, but it only has 14" Alloys I assume those ones are 15" aren't they?

Liking the colour, be interesting what you do to it, I'm not allowed to touch her's as it's the baby mobile, lol.

Any news on this blog? Have you painted the primered part yet? Also found out our lasses cousin now has a Ford Focus not bad looking either.





I don't think it's that bad, better than our 2.0 Ghia.
