Top Class mate,
Can't believe I've not saw this thread until today,
Fair play with the win on the second set of headlights and the outcome is fantastic results.
I'm very interested to see the mechanical operations of the Mondeo as id be interested to see if it would be a straight fit in the focus,
Id love to remove the key latch and fit a badgless grill.

Also your engine is TDCi
How do you keep the chrome exhaust tips so clean?

I've got a piper T304 stainless duplex with oval chrome tips, very difficult to keep them clean like yours.
Keep up the work mate I look forward to it

To fit a badge less grill to a focus you would have the re-locate the key hole to release the bonnet. I know people have done it.

As for the exhaust trims... Autosol once a week will keep them shiney!!

Been following your progress and I must say the car looks really slick with the new headlights. It makes a big difference. Plus, the lowered stance and the black rims, definite win.
Keep up the good work and will be looking forward to the next mod

The next episode begins...

 

Today I decided to pull my foglights out and try and get the lower grill out.

 

So
I read up on here and decided to take the undertray completely off to
gain access to the retaining screws. Took about 20 mins to get all the
screws and bolts out.. there must of been 20 holding it on!!

 

Unscrewed the retainer screws and slipped a paint scraper along the top of the lights and popped out. Unclipped the cables and jobs a good un.

 

 

 

Moved
on to the lower grill. I had read that you just need to give it a good
tug and work your way around. This worked for the bottom section. But
the top half did not budge. Had a good look and it appears that the top
section has been bonded to the bumper. Bugger!

 

 

 

So
I have left it in place for now with the bottom hanging out and will
have a think. Might have to spray it on the car? Not a problem if the
weather stays good?!

 

I did manage to pull the lower
grill mesh out. I had bought a Focus ST lower grill to try and create a
custom lower grill. This idea has been binned as the parking sensors
wont fit the ST grill and it is actually a different mesh pattern from
the upper grill. So I have decided to put the original grills back on
but painted black and have ordered some Black and silver Gel overlays
from DMB. I will also paint the chrome bit the badge sits on to "stealth" it up a bit.

 

I have keyed up all the bits and washed down for primer and paint tomorrow. Just hope the weather holds out!!
