My name is Blake,
Ford Focus Zetec S 2009 (Bagged)
I am 23 and from the Midlands.
What got me into cars, hot wheels, need for speed, gaming in general around kind of modifying cars and just doing some crazy stuff, growing up racing games was always the choice over war games etc. That love was always there till I passed my driving test, as then I took the games into reality, and found out it’s not cheap.
My car is a Ford Focus Zetec S 2009, it is my second car, which I have owned for nearly three years now, the cars been on a hell of a journey and has been an amazing base for me to learn, I’m a hands-on kinda person and all the work I have got stuck in and done it myself or with friends, as that’s what the car scene should be about, built not bought.
So like most done the usual, low line kit, exhaust, lowering springs (may have cut them as it was too high) after a couple of months of being static, air ride popped up at an excellent price and I thought, it’s different, gotta try it At least once, and go with being different as back then not many focus’s were on bags.
So that trigger was pulled and set the car in a different direction as I felt like that was the childish mod stage over and time to change a bit. Nearly a year later due to uni, not a lot changed, I saved enough to get some jr15’s and get them to powder coated white, which is really what set the car off, and it showed that on social media with followers and likes.
Skipping forward, along came covid, all of 2020 the cars been on the drive, I wanted to go the full nine yards with an audio build, so the whole inside got stripped, sound sheeting, expanding foam, wiring, building speaker pods, new boot build. I didn’t set myself an easy task. I finished UNI in may and mid-project bought a written off st, this then extended the time scale a lot as the top priority was to engine swap it from a 1.6 to the 2.5 turbos.
This again was another built not bought moment as the swap was done in a friends garden, this took us a couple of weeks due to work and travel issues, but it was really worth it with the first startup.
The car is going to be an ever going project, once the inside is finished I shall start on some power mods and catching up on the exterior side of the car as a low line kit, wide arch and some paint correction is on the list. The aim with the car is for me to learn as I go along, I’m a designer, not a mechanic but building and creating is what I enjoy, and I’ll learn it and make mistakes to show I’ve created what I want.
Shoutout to the cleaning sponsor as well @buffit
Never thought I’d partner with a company as have been with them since early doors and can’t fault what Ryan sells, as the products are spot-on for and the UK produced.
