Hi all, the time has come to get a little job done ive been meaning to do for a while which is spray up the silver dash trim on the focus. Mines all flaking up due to a flid taking the stereo out and butchering the dash in the process :angry: .

Now for the big question, what colour do i spray it up im open to sudjestions here people lol im thinking st170 grey because it would match my seats and dash etc.

well moon dust silver is a shade too light dont know about grey to be honest sounds a bit dull to me i would if it was me spray it aluminium or a metallic colour to bring it out a bit. have to say though the reason the blanking piece isnt blending in well is you have the stereo up at the top where its meant to go on the bottom of the dash with the blanking piece on the top.. it sags when you put it up top and the trim piece doesnt blend in well

sounds okay with the silver specs in it bear in mind the materials may come to 40 anyway paint and primer laquer etc etc so its youre choice really the map lights are a sod to find sometimes as theyre usually all gone but like me you may get lucky good hunting comrade Posted Image

I've just paid 8 for Ghia map lights off fleabay. The guy only listed them as Ghia interior lights, which won't mean much to someone who doesn't know. I've seen them go for 15-20 buy it now.

As above I just bought the map light to replace my standard light, 10. Again the seller just had it listed as a normal focus interior light.
