Now your showing off Lenny! Ha. Ive had them brows in my eBay basket for a month now i was really unsure wether to buy them. Il wait see how they look on your focus. I do kinda wish i gloss blacked my grill now before putting it on, but i think il get the initial look first then do the odd bit spraying.

Did say your going to spray the chrome lip black? :blink: wow Lenny i thought you loved your chrome ^_^ . Nice choice though, for my colour car i think chrome looks tatty and too standard.

Hi guys,
The st grill looks really good, may have to order one myself :)

Lenny, I thought the grill that the st one replaces was standard on all mk2.5 foci??

Might buy the st lower grill too and cut it to fit the normal bumper at some point :S

Hi mate lol,
i like chrome but im not in love with it, and since the titanium lower grill will be replaced with the zetec s one the only chrome that will be left is the rings on the fog light housings,
and ive had a long thought about the chrome lip and i dont think gloss black would suit the flow of the car since the light brows will bring the bonnet lower and give the car a more aggressive appearance i think the chrome strip would be best colour coded to carry the flow line of the brows from left to right across the front of the car. rather than spraying it gloss black making the grill look bigger.

Their are three types of upper grill on the mk2.5

i currently have the stock one fitted, that is the one that comes fitted to the style, zetec, titanium, and ghia
see here:

the grill you have is specific to the zetec s covers more of the bumper at the bottom of the grill and sticks out a bit further than the first one and looks like this here:

and finally the third one is the st upper grill see here:

Guten Tag Ive just purchased a set mate, i got them on a best offer bid of £18.00 but the Postage from Germany via DHL is £24.12 so all in they cost £42.12 but ive translated the description on them and they come supplied with 3M adhesive and some additional glue to fit them and are already primed ready for painting, plus i reckon they are the best looking light brows on the market for the mk2.5 but just thought id let others know about the pricey postage that isint that noticeable prior to purchase.
ill upload some pictures of them in primer finish sitting on the headlights when they arrive

I see it as refining.
If it was a Vauxhall(spit) it would be classed as polishing a t#rd. :P
