Candy blue would look good and stand out from the rest mate,
Id research plasti coat loads first and id give your existing panels 3 months to set completly after being sprayed by the body shop befor coating with plasti-coat.
Are you doing it yourself or getting some place to do it?

I never seen candy blue befor might do a search and see what come ups. plasti dip doest damage the paint work at all so should be ok also it just get spreyed stright on and if you dont like it just peel it off. im going to try it myself and see how it comes out but im going to do a trial run on a old front bumper i have.done alot of search on it been intrested in it for few months now.

Have you seen the thread on STOC forum recently of a guy who tried it in a similar shade of blue? Had all sorts of bother with it running, and was having help from an experienced mate. Ended up throwing in the towel before getting it finished.

 

Just a heads up and may be worth giving the guy a shout to if has any tips before you start. Must say though, think it would look stunning if it worked out! Was dying to see that guy's finished article, but instead he had the nightmare task of picking the plastidip out of all the nooks and crannies along with peeling it off the main panels!

Yeah, was just a heads up really mate as it could be a costly mistake if you were to try a DIY.

 

It's obviously not impossible though as we've seen cars plasti-dipped before, so just make sure you do your research first.

I do love those Jags! If it was an option for me, I know what I'd be doin! Even though your Focus is stunning and you've put a lot of work and coin into it, would probably be hard to let it go, but trading up to an XF would make it that bit more bearable!
