Just can't resist these $9 bargains.
I think the Focus is the best Ford release in SA in decades.

In the budget range this little tyke gets a full  :3tens: from me.
The paintwork is absolutely stunning in perlescent blue with the flake down to 1:18 perfection.
All the lights including the boot led brake light are coloured plastic and the logos and badges are all perfect.
The whole shooting match opens ,even the rear luggage boot cover lifts up.
I'm still detailing so some of the rims are in process of sporty makeover, the caliphers are already done.

Congrats Bug!  :cheers I bought one years ago, and never took it out of the box as I didn't have a place to put it.  :giggle

Are you trying to do the Kona edition with the mountain bike?  :giggle

Al, to afford a Kona that would had to have been a Veyron.
The bike is my contribution to hybrids. Gas goes up, you pedal ! :giggle

My Introduction to Motormax was a '51 Ford bought on a trip to Istanbul for 30 TL (approx $15), Initial thoughts were, Sled Style, nosed and decked, de guttered and side moulding removed, got one side done and then the Dremel burnt out!!!
