My 'Red Rocket' Focus RS has Gold Wheels! | PROJECT PART 3

Stage one is complete! My Ford Focus RS Red Edition project car is now one wild 'Red Rocket' thanks to the full carbon aero kit from Ventus Veloce, combined with gold wheels and other special touches. It's still just the start though, there's a lot more to come...

Having previously overhauled the interior with the Prototrim finish in Alcantara and leather, and started the installation of the Ventus Veloce carbon fibre parts, it's now time to continue the project with the wheels, brake calipers, steering wheel, gear shift knob and some gold RS logos.

Starting with our first full look at the car wearing the full Ventus Veloce kit, it comprises many parts that contrast against the Race Red paintwork and enhance the look as well as reducing weight, increasing aero and making the design even sportier and more aggressive. This includes parts such as the bonnet, grille, fog lamp inserts, splitter, lower lip, side skirts, rear wing and diffuser: https://www.ventusveloce.com/collections/mk3-focus-rs

The parts had been installed at Dub Customs were much of the ongoing work has been done, but before that it's a trip to Posh Wash to paint the wheels gold! It's a project car so being unique and different is half the point, and the colour of choice is to line up a colour scheme akin to my inbound Ford GT, in a gold to pay tribute to Alan Mann Racing - the inspiration for my GT's colours. https://www.instagram.com/poshwash_/

With the wheels painted, the next stop is Dub Customs for the installation of two pieces from SS Tuning, both a carbon fibre and Alcantara steering wheel and a matching gear shift knob. The parts will complete the interior, and explain why the factory steering wheel had not been changed by Prototrim as the SS Tuning wheel was already on the way! http://ss-tuning.com/focus-st-rs-mk3-carbon-steering-wheel

Next up, Dub Customs proceed to paint the calipers in gloss black to work better with the colour scheme than the standard unpainted silver look, and finish them with red Brembo decals. Before finally changing the various RS badges around the car to gold to match the colour scheme as opposed to the existing blue badges.

This concludes the first stage of the work on the car, with a lot of the visual elements changed, but with the engine, exhaust, suspension and more still to be done, it's just the beginning as we head towards the full project. For now, the car has picked up the nickname, 'Red Rocket', so game on for what's next!

Thanks for watching, Tim
