That looks spot on preee,
You were always great at applying vynil wrap mate,
I'd end up with it stuck to my face lol

A chrome button on the top of the handbrake would finish it off nicely,
Really looks great and factory fitted.

May be worth a punt?

Don't know if you can even disassemble the lever on your car though?

Nice find Clive , mine seems to be square on the end. Maybe worth looking at ford parts see if they do one.

Looking through microcat the handbrake units are shown as whole units.

Only variation seems to be the colour of the casing.

Perhaps mask up the whole area and spray paint the button in a bright silver,
Would be a lot of tape and newspapers but 100% worth doing.

I have to say I do prefer the handbrake fitted to 2012 onwards Tit Xs, mine is leather with a chrome button.

 

Could be quite expensive to replace the whole unit, the problem I could foresee with painting it though, is that it could wear off a thumb print where it is used so much.

 

EDIT:

 

Oh and after seeing your Focus yesterday Preee, I'm going to have to get a quote for a rear spolier, all your fault..... :P

I'm going to start off and see if I can get a good price out of my Local dealer, want to give them a chance (they gave me a pretty good deal on the grilles). They also have their own bodyshop, so can in theory supply, spray and fit.

 

I might fit it myself though, didn't look too bad from your pics earlier.

My dealer also had a body shop , and they still wanted , if i remember over £365.

 

The Spoiler off Ebay claims to be genuine , and certainly had ford markings on it , it was a perfect fit and already came primed.

I did get a price of £275 part only, not sure if it even includes VAT, but having said that, my usual parts guy wasn't there so no discount and also I'm not 100% sure he got the right one, it looked like the ST spoiler in the pic he showed even though I gave him the reg.

 

Still the bodyshop is shut this week (typical), so I have to wait till Monday to get a price on spraying anyway, in which time I'll hopefully have a price from fordpartsuk (which I only found out recently is run by Foray, who are the next nearest main dealer to me).

 

Are you still using the original antenna? I have read up on it a bit and it seems that the spoiler "kit" includes a piece of (effectively) sticky back plastic, to stop the aerial rubbing. Otherwise you have to get the stubby antenna.
