Looks a good job to me.
If you want bits carbon dipping give Brigante a nudge, he's just perfected doing it himself.


Might just do that...

Looks gorgeous, very well spec'd standard too! Good choice on removing both badges, looks a lot cleaner.

Hi Mate, loving the plans you have for your car, looking good atm.
I was just wondering what size spacers you went for as i'm thinking about buying some for my titanium x sport and don't know what size to go for?

Gone for 15mm each side. The RS wheels offset is 5mm less than the standard wheels... So only really 10mm +.

Decided the wrap is coming off... Think with the Mondeo I am going to keep it all Ford Colours.

So bought some Panther Black spray. Going to do the Lip and Upper surround. fogs and the lower grill surround in Panther Black... might do the rear diffuser in Panther Black too?

Also bought a debadged upper grill, going to paint both grills satin black to contrast.

So today I recieved a package... my badgeless grill...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Got busy with the sandpaper and keyed it all up for primer... and the top lip too.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Washed down and dried, then 1st coat of primer...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Needs a few more coats... but ran out of spray. Got some more arriving tomorrow along with the Panther Black as well. One problem I have is, on the original grill the upper grill trim comes off, on the badgeless it is all one part. So going to satin black the whole grill then mask off all but the lower lip and then spray that Panther Black.

Bit more progress today. Bought another can of primer and have sorted the lip and grill now...

Also touched in the few marks on the RS wheels... and painted all the weights black.

Looked at the front grill amd fogs too.. should pop out fairly easily. But the rear diffuser is actually part of the rear bumper... bugger!

Well sad to say the wheels are not fitted... neither are the spacers... turns out I have bought the wrong spacers. The ones I have bought require the wheel bearing separating from the front and the longer studs feeding through.

So just had the Eibachs fitted.

Also fitted the new Panther Black Bonnet lip...

New spacers have been ordered and will be fitted ASAP.
