Looks great mate :)
On the other hand with the bonnet lock opening the only way to sort it is to cut the grille open, if you take it to ford that is what the will do as had it happen to mine before when just fiddling with the grille, not even removing it !!
It's a very serious design fault that has been mentioned hundreds of times before

Basically if you look through the grill to the actuall release mechanism you can see a white disc on the other end of the key lock. When the grill gets tampered with it pulls the white disc out from the unseen components making the locking mechanism useless. Ford have to cut out the grill to release the bonnet then replace the grill. Best not to tamper with the grills at all, just get ford or a mechanic to do it with the right tools

Completed the service on the car and it's running like a dream :) - Didn't manage to get any shots of the actual service though, sorry gc88.

Took some pictures of the sidelight holders that are broken, need to find some more of these lollipop sticks for the headlight units:

I have managed to fit the LED sidelights (a little loose but will do for now) and also the dipped beam Mtec Cosmos Blue's. Night pictures to follow :)

Got the main beams too!
