Will get a photo up this evening hopefully, don't have my phone USB lead in the office here.

It would be do-able surely, I just have a tendency to quick-fix things for a while until it starts to annoy me, and only then will I go back and do it right! I found it awkward with it being a rounded edge, but mainly as they're small items with very little 'fold-over' room on the back, if ya get me. On mirror covers, console panels etc it's easy to stretch the wrap over and stick to the under side and then trim it up, but on these it just seemed so fiddly!

As I said, it looks good to me as is, or at least a lot better than it was before, so it'll prob stay that way until I start looking closely at the creases on the edges and get disappointed with my shoddy effort...at which point, but probably no sooner, I'll take it off and do it right, haha!

Thanks mate, I really wanted to put my HID on as there better and look good too if i put osram bulbs on they wont be as good as HID though . Have you got pic of the osram bulb on a car to see how it looks when on.

I'm guessing your HID kit is for the standard H7 bulb socket?? and these new lights also have the H7 socket?? because the ST headlights for my facelift use Osram D1S bulbs designed only for the Bi Xenon D1S socket and Ballast like so

As this is what the projector looks like

So would be pointless showing you, however some other members have the halogen Osram bulbs fitted so maybe they could post a comparison

I believe they're the same, look some up on eBay and see if they're alike.

Do you think a RS front bumper will look good or not on my focus. I have got the facelift front wings and will get the bonnet soon when i get payed and already have the healights but rather then makeing it into a facelift st replica do you think it look ok if i put just the rs front bumper on or are the wings differnt and my car is a 5 door so what u think. Also rather then changeing the wing mirror cover etc as i dont have indicator on my mirrors should i just drill a few little hole on my existing cover, and put some kind of led strip or 3mm round led light on. It will look differnt and cheaper then changeing the cover and etc.

The RS front bumper, rear bumper and side panels are all wider than the st or standard models mate.

It is possible but would require side front fenders.

I thought the front wings are the same so i was thinking of puting a rs front bumper on only not the rear. I will stick to my facelift st replica as i had a look on google and spoke to rs bumper suppliers and they also said the wings are different so thanks for your advice. Im waiting to get payed from work end of the month and i should be buying the new bonnet il keep updated of my build.

Best to have gotten the second opinion on it mate lol never trust a Sherpa lmao.

Unfortunitly it is wider but their is a full RS replica kit available for the 5 door focus shipping from china but quality of the kit and ease of fitment is unknown.

And any mk2 fenders will fit an ST replica and any mk2.5 fenders will fit a mk2.5 ST replica but RS is on its own.

I wont ever do a full rs replica as its to expensive and also my car is 5 door might look strange. I will just do a facelift st cant wait im going to get everyhting sorted slowly but i wont put it on my car till after winter as i might vinyl wrap the car so i dont want the snow and salt from the road to damage anything. If i end up just painting it i dont want no stone chips on the new paint so il wait till after winter.

Wrong ones completely mate. The mirror cover is the same as what you currently have now but unpainted. And the indicator is for the mk2.5 wing mirror so for an entirely different mirror completely.

You need these covers:

And these indicators:

http://www.fordparts...0_f_4450781.htm

http://www.fordparts...0_f_4450780.htm

If you remove you current covers you'll see this space where the indicator clips into:

If you do want mk2.5 mirrors you'll have to buy completely new mirrors.

What you all think about plasti dip is it any good or will it come off when you clean the car. Has anyone done it befor would like some pic if posible. I found this company who can plasti dip thw whole car in any colour with 1 year gurantee as i was thinking of vinyl wrapping the car after xmas just wonderd if plasti dip was any better as it cheaper to do also. Oh yea for some reason only the pasinger side heated windscreen is working but the driverside is working but realy slow any clue what it could be.
