Remove Ghia, and side door Ghia's too
stick side door ghia's on ebay for £3 each make somthing back.

leave focus and purchase an ST badge for to replace Ghia but look at images of the ST
the badge sits higher than the Ghia

I know cant be fitting an st badge yet while the front end still looks like it does. Was thinking about fully debadging for now and sticking the focus back on when its a full on replica and got the st badge to go with it
