so.... after talking to preee, I received the vinyl wrap on thursday and finally plucked up the courage to follow the guidance and managed to wrap the front fascia..... so, after many annoying moments and one headache later this is the end result :) also ordered ELM from preee so will be doing that when it arrives, just waiting on the climate control knobs now, anyway here's how it looks.

I did NOT find it easy haha I had a look at your pics with the vinyl wrapped around the start button and gear box, to be honest I wanna keep the chrome look as I'm getting some door sills etc and think it would "match" better, but again this is just personal preference, however you were completely right with only doing the front fascia and not carrying it on all the way down :D but yes I am very pleased with it, and thanks for all your help!!! hairdryer is going away for a while now lol

gonna go bug lenny for advice with the cc knobs when they come haha :D

Haha ,I'm sure Lenny will help you :)
The main thing is "You did it" all by yourself and the main point of the Forums is to get that knowledge and help people.
So no need to thank me just enjoy the satisfaction you started to modify you Focus :)

Looks fantastic,Posted Image Ow and you made a great job of the wrapping too Posted Image
slight observation with your white cable coming from the glove box,
if you open the glovebox and unplug the cable, then feed it up through the gap in the bottom centre of the glovebox door when open.

then when you close the glovebox the cable will come througg the bottom of the glovebox door with out any restriction and looks slightly better too.

lol thank you lenny :) yeah that's just the aux cable, it's just temporary untill I take preee's advice to take it to ford and have the stereo upgraded to play my ipod through the bluetooth, I assumed if I could talk through it I could play music, this wasn't the case, generally the cable is kept in the glove box anyway but I had my younger brother wanting to "play DJ" earlier. <_<

looking good mate... i ordered like a 2-3 meter aux cable and have run mine from the glove box to the center storage compartment, personally think it looks 100 times better... as for the wrapping i think it looks ace, only im not too sure on the contrast between the carbon and the silver, all or nothing in my opinion :D

I don't need balls for that, your offer to do it for me still stands! :P

Although the likelihood of my mouth getting taped up with your leftover vinyl has probably gone up considerably now... :'( haha ;)

hey thanks alkyz yeah I want to run the cable through not 100% sure how to do it so might go check it out in a bit, I was debating the contrast but I think where the dash is black it kinda divides it nicely, but like i said to preee its all about what people prefer, to be honest its not that noticeable.

it says 'max ac' on my mk 3 too, switches the ac on as soon as your turn the dial there

kind of annoying when you dont want it on! it switches back on automatically some time afterwards too so you're constantly turning it off! <_<
