Hi All,
I assume most of you will be tucked up in bed right now as i type this, but as for me, I am on a night shift, I hope you all feel my pain, no? I didn't think so...
Anyways, I have read it before and I can't remember where or who mentioned it. but yes, I have another rear valance question!

What is the colour code for the lower part of the rear valance, IF* I was to get the grey?

I have a silver focus and want to know what colour you all think would be best best! I think I like the grey colour that seems to be most popular on the zetec s kit!
I do like black that some have, however I am fussy and I think that at some angles and at night it's not clear to see that there is anything there (if that makes sense)
Now you all may be thinking why ask us if you like the grey LOL!! answer - I want other people to like my car as well as myself..so what you guys think will look best others should like too :-)
What do you all think...????

I'd love to help but I had a month long battle with ford... There is no paint code for the grey bit on the Zs kit!

Ollie mate we have a lot in common,
I am working nights this week too 11-7 and I haven't slept a wink since 8am yesterday,
Their is no set colour for the diffuser section.
I went to halfords and picked up a can of ford moondust silver, which is my car colour.

I then picked up other cans of gray to find a good contrast.
So I went with peugeot graphite gray,
I bought 3 cans of it and give them to the body shop to spray the section.
They only used 2 cans so I had kept the reciept and returned the left over can and bought some wax lol

Here is mine:

Ah Lenny I feel for you then mate, nights absolutely kill me! Especially when it gets to about 3am !!
Right ok, I will have a look for a similar colour then I think however I may go a tad lighter..
Thanks for your help yet again :-)

I have got to go on hunt soon for a local body shop to spray my body kit at a reasonable price !
I am just after the 5dr sides, bloody impossible they are no where to be seen..

You do..???
It really depends who I am on nights shifts with, some of my staff team are miserable !!
Stoney871
My two colleagues don't complain or get unhappy although sometimes they do whine (and bark).

I do 7 shifts 3 back then 4 nights 7.30 till 9.00 then 3 off then 2 backs 2 days 3nights so i know how you feel

Ive seen a few focus with the rear spoiler some black which looks a bit odd to be honest a silver one on a silver car lennys graphite looks a good bet and will suit all colours or you could carbon wrap it but it may look a bit tacky

Looking extremely good lenny

Thanks Arthur,
DMB have supplied some matching grey Ford GT side stripes should be here anytime now.

I've requested Wednesday night off work as I'm heading to ford on Thursday,
Can't get the whole night off so I'm in 11-3am lol why can't I do 7pm-11pm instead
The whole point was to sleep that night.
I'll collapse in the show room floor.

Can imagine:
Sales man opens side door on the B-max
And there's lenny snoring his head off in a puddle of slobber lol

Oliverb

Mate as soon as it hits 3am I know I will be needing my bed !!..

Strangely enough, with blackout blinds and a nice cool, quiet room I can sleep easier in the day than at night.

have never worked nights but i work permanent split shift 6am-9.30am then 2.30pm-6pm but im busy during my 5 hr lunch break lol as i run my own company in that time

I used to work shifts in the RAF, 2 days of 8am till 8pm then 2 nights of 8pm till 8am...Never did actually do a full night...i got the office chairs out and slept... TV gets boring after 2am...when family guy and american dad finish. lol

 

Even when i left the bus company put me on lates, mind you its alot more fun at nights...drunks sleeping on the bus and you get back to the depot with a bus load lol

 

but now i either work 7am till 3pm or 11pm till 7pm....

 

Still i prefer the lates, not a morning person at all...

Stoney871
I'm an anti-social type of guy so nights suit me just fine.
Ususl pattern is two days fron 6am to 8pm then nights from 6pm to 8am (the two extra hours are for paperwork/grooming the dogs and digging the crap out of the patrol car).
johnH
By i bet your a barrell of laughs when it comes to time to do paperwork. Lol :p
Stoney871
Depends on how many arrests i've made.
Arrest reports are fun really (not)
