Hey guys. After months of being made redundant I finally got a job and was able to put these baby's on, I think they finish off that rear bumper really well. just seein if you guys think the same :) de badging to come next. Also, was looking at the gel badge overlays.. But not sure of the colours to choose, what do you guys think would suit the vision blue?

Looks sweet. The badges will come off with some boiling water and some lighter fuel (dont ignite it) to get any sticky residue off.
PaulB8869
Thanks pal. And those gel overlays that make the ford badge a different colour, really stuck on the colour to choose that'll go with my car colour. Looked at the black and chrome and red and chrome but not sure

[i]Its difficult to know what to use on a blue car. Do the do carbon effect ones?[/i]
PaulB8869
I think they have actually. Will have a look now cus I think that's a good combination
Stoney871
Oh aye, carbon works with everything.
Steve
I think they suit the car well
PaulB8869
Thanks mate. Just ordered my gel overlays. Carbon with light blue should go well with the colour will post pictures when they arrive
Gavc
Cars looking really nice mate, the twin pipes really set the rear end off as will the debadging. :)

Keep up the good work mate.

Looking good mate,
When you said about de-badging are you removing the complete boot handle or just cutting the badge section out?
Andy H Dibley
Vision blue is definitely the best colour! ;)

How do the gel overlays work, do they simply stick over the badge or do you remove the old one?
Stoney871
They just stick over the original ones like thick gel transfers.
Andy H Dibley
Hmm, does it cover the chrome edges?

Some doofus had a go at removing my rear one with a screw driver, it's left some marks on the top chrome edge part. If it covers that up, might be a cheap fix.

Unfortunitly doesnt cover the chrome edge, just the face of it.
But i can guide you through removing the boot handle section to replace the badge if required.
You just need to purchase the badge from ford think they are around 17-22pounds
Would take around an hour.

Hi Lenny,

Not wanting to hijack the OP's thread, ill PM you as I have some other questions too!
PaulB8869
I don't mind guys have a natter lol. Lenny just looking at debadging the focus and Zetec 1.6, leaving the boot handle exactly where it is :)

Plan on doing the same when it warms up a little.

Rather annoyingly my Ford dealership ass-stamped mine with their brand, I reckon it'll be a right pain to get off.
PaulB8869
Yeah it more than likely will but it will look so much more smooth once they are off. Shopping around for the best quotes on debadging now, don't trust myself ill more than likely mess something up haha
