Oh wow they look cool,
So do they go over the current badge? I fancy a pink one hehe

Well i fancied coilovers but i dont think theres a decent ride with coilies under 500 with these ford models.
I just need inspiration, no idea what to do about wheels either.
I would love to rid the walnut dash but i dont know how to do it!

yeah,
you just line them up on top of your existing badge and blow over them with a hair-dryer to soften them a bit then their done,
if you ever want to remove them just wipe the top of them with petrol to remove the glue,

3M Carbon Wrap may be an alternative to the walnut on the dash, same application method as DMB graphics
Click Here for the carbon wrap, bit tricky trying to line up the checker finish on the carbon though,
recommend if possible remove the panels and wrap around the front and on to the back of the panels this will prevent it peeling easily,
their are some people in the fiesta part of the forum with more knowledge on the carbon wrapping may be able to help if you decide to go for the carbon effect.
Ive also found a supplier of custom Laser cut parts for the dash of the car, ive purchased some items from him for the focus and their top quality, may be of interest to you for the mondeo, Click Here
