Stoney, where's my Ocean Blue paint code?

Search me.
I'm just quoting from a post I did before and the list was from a member of another club I'm with.
Tcchh, can't please everyone I suppose. :(

hey lenny i will take some pics in a day or so for you.... what i did notice is the diffuser on the silver cars is a dark grey, but the diffuser on the sea grey, blue or black zs is a lighter grey. Hense why i got a silver car as i think the diffuser on the black cars looks cheap and plasticy (personal opinion) lol
i bet you cant wait for the body kit to go on...

I think it would be best to let the proffesionals paint both sections as using the spray paint will have a different effect to the spay gun.
Maybe you could just take one can, just so they know what colour you want. Just an idea :)
If you need any pics of the bumper mountings I am willing to help out.

Sal

No probs mate, I am glad I could help

As far as I know the diffusers are all the same colour, it's just when the car colour is lighter ( white or silver) than diffuser this gives the effect that the diffuser is darker than on a coloured car.

@salsheikh
whatever you do, do not buy anything off that buyer from Poland. It may look good but is anything but. I got caught like that and bought side skirts and had them a few months before got round to fitting them and they were nothing but rubbish. The fella in bodyshop said you could spend two days tryin to get them to fit and still wouldn't look right. If Im honest save up for a good set as it'll be worth it. I've still got them at home and can't get rid of them

John, are the ebay sellers carlovingcriminals? if it is then thanks for the heads up.
i will keep an eye out for the genuine ford ones from now on.

Haz, can you post pics of the mounting points from underneath the bumper - i wanna see how the diffuser attaches to the bumper and car.

Thanks mate,
ill purchase one can of sea grey in hallfords and ask the body shop to match it.

Hi mate,
some more pictures would be brilliant, and yes im looking foward to getting the bits fitted on next month.
going to get the front lip and rear skirt done next month, then the side skirts the month after that.

if you dont have the time to upload them and link them to the forum after you have taken them,
you can just email them to me and i will upload them to the thread for others mate,
and if anyone would like a copy of the fitting instructions from ford i can photocopy mine and post them to you on request, just email me on the address found in the PDF versions of my guides listed below my posts.

Thanks for the list of paint codes mate, apprecieate the time taken to gather them for us B)

Thanks for the links Lenny, all i need for the complete set is the side skirts. will keep an eye out at breakers/ebay etc.

I was thinking if a splitter could be attached to the front skirt? What do you think fella's?

A splitter in carbon wrap or Gloss black would liik sweeeet ;)
but if you plan to lower it on 32mm eibahs and fit some 18'' ST alloys with low profile tyres,
then perhaps the lip wouldnt be a good idea mate, i had planned to lower mine on 18'' ST alloys untill i saw this guys focus.

I will get some pics up tomorrow afternoon. I will take some for front and back and sides just incase anyone finds them useful :)

Lenny

I think that's the best thing to do, I'm sure they will be able to get the colours sorted out :)

cheers mate,
would be cheaper on me too because halfords are 12euro per can of the stuff, and then id still have to pay labour costs for spraying that section in the body shop :lol:

so 12euro for one can is enough and just pay the body shop for the labour and paint would be cheaper than buying 4 or 5 cans plus labour costs

For colour inspirations take a look at the back end of a Kuga as they have contrasting skirt colours too.

thanks mate,
the colour the have chosen for the diffuser on the kuga looks good in the darker models but it seems to be brighter than the moondust silver on this model looks like alluminium,
but it goes good with the moondust silver on the kuga it because of the black bumper either side, and i like the duplex exhaust peaking through like hard nipples on a wet T-Shirt ^_^ .... :lol:
