Used chrome tape detailing on fog light surrounds. Also changed grill from standard one.

IMG_1981.JPG

Changed climate controls to go with stereo toggle and facia. seen a lot of people on here have the more black dial ones, these are the other way round chrome with black circle.

Was a bit unsure of this one at first but think its look rather good :)

IMG_1984.JPG

Used the detail chrome from front on back also.

Also found my hidden lights on the footwells. Just ordered 2 red bulbs to go in them. Hope they look the part for it. Also again sorry, just purchased a set of ford chrome pedals. I will post pics once they fitted :)

Fair play Ash looking well. An internal option may be to put the astray fitting under the radio console so that it covers that open space. Few threads on here showing the dfference and looks well. As Sal said the lads are the gurus they have great mods done and also great guides on how to do it also another mod man would be clive his user name is Stoney871 he also has great mods and guides.

sorry mate,
i have done it on my last two cars but i have yet to do it on the focus,
i used foliatec two part paint basically mix the hardener to the paint ant put it on the calipers but mask up the rubber bleed nipples and put some newspaper on the ground while painting,

i have painted the rear drums with hammeride smooth silver on the focus when i bought it in september 2010 and its still as good as ever though,
just masked the area around the bolts and painted them up,
but when i eventually get around to painting the calipers i will do a guide but i would prefer to take them off this time and paint them rather than leaving them in place,
and if you search ebay you can get some heat resistant vynil decals in various colours,
i had some brembo decals on red painted calipers in the starlet lol people thought they were really brembo brakes.

their are little black rubber caps that cover the bleed nipple on the caliper and if you paint them they may become hard to remove in the event of changing the brake fluid or bleeding air from the system,
just cover them with some masking tape when you are painting, you will see them on the inside area of the caliper the area close to the suspension strut.
