U might be best trying to take the bumper off completely to get to the grill. I took apart a front bumper this weekend (it was already off the car) and took the grilles off. They where clipped in all over it and were a pain in the A*&^ to get off.

But like you said, if weather is nice try and spray them on the car, seems easier.

Mint, I want mine to be ready for then. Got to order my spoiler and springs next week. Plus it's going in for a Decat and a remap.

Great job ! My dad is getting one of these in the next few months, not sure if he will let me make as many mods to it as your's though.

Got home and started prepping the car for primer.

Then primered the grills, fogs etc etc. Strange thing is the plastic primer is clear... weird.

Going to let it all dry overnight then start reassembling.

Now do I keep the foglights all black or put the chrome rings back on??

Carbon wrap them.

The rings?? Interesting. Think they would be a bugger to do. But might be worth a shot?

So was going to put all the plastics back on... but the finish was
not as good as I thought, bit orange peeley. So flattened it back and
re-sprayed the fogs, upper grill etc etc.

But I did manage to fit the lower grill, parking sensors and re-fit the surround.

Got up in the glorious sunshine and headed out... fogs look a lot
better for a re-paint. So got round to re-installing, all fitted no
bother.

Check it oot!!

Now
the question is... chrome rings on or off the foglights?? I'm actually
quite liking on as they tie in with the headlights that way... what you
guys recon??

On...

When I got in found a card from the Postie... Looks like I missed my DMB decals... bugger. Role on monday!

Im loving the new front end. Wondering whether to wrap the lower lip black too?

Rings on mate, makes a sharp contrast.

Maybe paint them gunmetal though?

Looks fantastic mate,

I like the chrome rings on,

I've had my fog surrounds done gloss black too and have the chrome rings for contrast,

Wrapping the lip would also protect it from stone chip etc.

Latest update...

Now have Panther Black wing mirrors. (Pics up soon)

But... got a load of stones thrown up by a truck t'other day and have lost some paint off my fogs and upper grill lip.

So I am going to redo them in Panther Black and a load of lacquer. At the same time noticed one of my wheel badges had dissapeared... luckily I have 4 spares... now 3!

Also... Might be getting the Collins remap on monday!! Just need the nod from the big man.

Well this week has not been so good for the Mondeo!

Firstly the paint spraying went !Removed! up and looks horrible.

So have given everything to my little bro who is a spray tech to get it sorted properly.

Secondly, went for the remap only to discover that it is not yet possible to do mine through the OBD port. Only option at the minute is for ECU removal and remap. But talking big bucks and a long !Removed! journey to boot!

Instead I have ordered a K&N panel filter... Could not find an induction kit for the 2.2!

Oh well, got some spare cash now for something else.

Few pics of the Panther Black Mirrors, Fogs and Bonnet Trims... (Please excuse the bug splatter!)

Have ordered a K&N panel filter... just waiting delivery.

Thinking next might be an upgraded intercooler, seeing as I can't afford to get the ECU out and mapped.
