I went carbon wrapping a few bits in my mk2 focus today all went well and look well I think anyway. I will get pics up tomorrow. And please give opinions on it :)

A question i need to know is the surround for the radio, do i need to take out the radio to remove surround ir will it just come off?

if the dash surround is the same as it is in the mk2.5 then the surround comes off first mate,
then their are 4 screws holding in the stereo, but the panel is just clipped in to the dash, so if you get a thin coloth or a dash wipe and wrap it over a flat head screwdriver than gently push it inder the panel at the botto then gently pull towards the rear of the car,
the panel will come out slightly,
then do the same on the sides working your way around until it is out enough for you to fit your hands in either side and remove it.

looking foward to the pictures mate, sounds good

Is it a MK2 or a 2.5?
MK2 -radio out first, MK2.5- fascia off first.

Excellent job done their mate,
perticurally the front grill and the vent surrounds they would be very difficult to wrap, not to mention the door handle surrounds,
10/10 mate top class. some people can wrap and some cant but you have made a fantastic job with the stuff.

i agree mate,
but i suppose with the wrap you can take it off and do it again if it goes wrop but yours looks like its proper carbon panels,
im hoping to remove and wrap my bonnet lip in gloss carbon fibre in the coming months so i may be posting it to you along with the wrap and a payment to you lol because im useless at wrapping,
it took me four attempts to wrap the little panel that fits in between the two gauges in the pod lol and i lade that section myself from clear perspex then i couldnt even wrap it with matt black vinyl
