when removing them are you planning to ReFit them again or keep them off the car?

if your planning to keep them off then i would use an old sock, a hair dryer and some petrol,
not all at the same time though lol

heat the strip with the hairdryer and it will come off easily, start at one edge and work your way along gently heading and pulling.
then wax the area with petrol on a cloth or sock to remove the spoge sticky pad that was holding them there,

now if you plan to refit them, then the above method will not leave this possible.
but i have found a new set very cheap on ebay that you could replace them with.
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4d00c34e93

ive removed side strips before when i had a 3 door toyota starlet i removed the side strips making the car easier to wax, but im not sure if the side strips on the focus also have some plastic plugs holding them in to place or if it is just the sponge.
in my case with the starlet it was just sponge, but on the 5 door starlet it had some plastic plugs.
not a problem if you have new ones to replace them with though.

Nice one.

ive gone for the less is more type of look with the focus, and using coca-cola bottles as fog and reverse light housings lol i removed the rear bumper to give the body shop somthing to match the colour too when spraying the parts,
ive to leave the car with them on friday and picking it up next sunday, getting a zetec s body kit fitted to it so it should look like this.

cheers mate,
the wing mirror covers will be a tricky one to wrap mate the way they fold, but their may be some sort of carbon wrap that is in a sort of bowl shape to prevent so may creases when trying to curve it to shape,
and if i was you id go for the silver alloys mate, to keep the contrast right with the carbon wing mirrors and silver alloys always look great rolling at 25kmh.
are you going for the 18'' or 19'' RS style rim, and are you lowering it on 45mm springs?

DMB graphis can make some centre cap covers to suit your need too, so they would have ford printed on them no problem and regarding lowering it, i suppose wait and see how it looks with the 18'' wheels fitted, if their is a large gap in the top of the arches then you would be able to lower it and it would be the same height then as it currently is now.
and when fitting 18's you will need to purchase some steering rack limiters to stop the wheel from rubbing the inside of the arch.
its a geniune ford part
http://www.fordonlin...39_F1342639-128
and shop around for your alloys too.
i purchased some wolf race wheels and tyres from the uk for my previous car on ebay for 150euro cheaper than i could get them off John Bass tyres in gorey. for the very same wheels and that was including the postage cost i saved 150.

thats a very good price for 18'' rims
and you could carry a can of foam or purchase a ford compressor kit instead of the space saver wheel because it wouldnt fit along with 3 other 18'' wheels in the event of a puncture so no point in carrying extra weight that is no use to you, and the geniune ford compressor kit is around 50-70 euro and their is a holder available for it that replaces the spare tyre well area.

perhaps their is a different model for the 2005-2008 model but the chassie and frame is the same from 2005-2011 the only difference is they changed the panels so my arches and your arches are all the same size, but if you email ford on the link they will advise you better on it. and im not sure where they fit neither but ford are generally goos with instructions on ther additional parts.
