im just totaly guessing here but dont all focus's, or fairly new focus's use the badge to cover the lock for the bonnet opener. i would imagine there aint any because of this ?

my mark 2 04 plate focus has this feature as well...i dont think that you will be able to open with a modified grill.

unless you plan on major modifications to the lock mechanism that is. the badge swivells to the left so you can put the key in to unlock the bonnet.

i supose you could get one fabricated and just leave a tiny hole for the key, but how good would this look being able to see the lock through the grills ? not very id say

or you could go down the chicken wire route (obviously not actual chicken wire, that mesh stuff ?

again leaving a tiny hole for the key personaly i hate the mesh its real tacky lookin
