oem scuff plates turned up today (woo!) and was looking for advice before fitting them. instructions say to remove any grease on the sills with ipa before fitting. Obviously this will remove the wax too. I was wondering if they would stick fine with the layers of wax on there? Would the paint be ok with no wax on there?

Definitely take it off to help the adhesive stick as much as possible. Then simply relax over the top.

cheers mate, just wanted to know if it definately wouldnt stick as well with the wax in place, ipa rub down first then

I used sterile alcohol wipes to clean my sills and the plates stuck rock solid.

Which plates did you get and where from? I'm looking for a nice 5 door set that either has the ford logo or Focus written on them.

Look for ones from Richbrook, they tend to be top quality.

hi guys, yeah the lockwood ones seem to be really popular. I got the oem ford ones at a bargain price on ebay. thanks for your fitting suggestions, wiped down the sill with neat ipa before hand.
will post pics once i've worked out how to do it!

sorry about the quality, took pictures on phone. also sorry about the reflection, automatic lights in the garage, only way to turn them off is to stay still for 10 minutes!

They do make a difference. Excellent job there.

cheers mate, tbh when i first saw them i wasnt too sure but fitted to the car i really like them, glad you do too! hopefully will allows others to see what they are like fitted (i found it quite hard to actually find a picture of a focus with them fitted!)
