cheers, i didnt notice the things you done till now and think i will have to copy defo like the grill im thinking of taking the vinyl off the mirrors as they just look like standard black mirrors from a distance, so i want the outside to be pure silver as it has a fair bit of black trim, but the small things i will carbon like the grill now thanks haha, have you any other ideas as my focus looks a bit like yours but think mines fully standard on the outside, am looking to buy film maybe dark smoke for the back and light smoke front windows

I have the ouside of the front badge done aswell. Both the badge and the grilll now are tricky so just take your time is the advice I can give also you will need to take the mesh away from the outer to do it properly, just a few clips holding it so nothing major.

Yeah really easy push the leather gaiter down and pull the surround out take ya time though as they feel brittle to me.
Then the silver piece also separates which gives you the nice finish when put back together.
And Cheers for the comment

Stoney mate if your about, looking at your picture of how to remove the gear surround, I've lifted the leather up and think I can feel the clips holding the fascia down but I can seem to push them in or do anything to remove it. I dont wanna do it too hard incase I break anything. Care to shed any more light on how to remove it? Gonna carbon wrap it myself when my carbon wrap is delivered next week.

Just put a wide blade screwdriver wrapped in tape underneath the gaitor trim , twist gently and it pops up.
With the surround trim use the same technique and start at the left corner.
