:lol: ah now they never exist in the first place: lol: never in my life will i hang furry dice or boxing gloves of any colour or size in my/ vickis car lol

Reminds me theres a boxing gloves air freshener still in the pack, stuck down back of the fridge in the kitchen, i threw them on top of kitchen unit and they fell down the back,

If my back wasnt killing me at the minute, id pull out the fridge and bin them,

Not me atall,

Update:

Perhaps i got out of bed too early this morning i don't know,

What i do know is,: the day is feeling very long and I'm bored :(

So I've removed the rear wiper from the focus,

Dissected its components and sprayed it gloss black same as front grills and splitter,

Good thing about the bosh rear wiper blade is:

The rubber strip is interchangeable so ill be able to keep the gloss black arm when changing the wiper.

Here's the progress so far:

SNAP!!

I put a large bag on the kitchen floor and sprayed it in the house: lol: bad bad idea,

Whole family has since shipped out of the house due to the smell of solvents,

My nostrils are also gloss black and right side of my face is aching but second coat applied now just waiting for it to dry,

Was going to use vicki's hair dryer then i thought better not lol

Second coat applied

Bit tricky getting the spring to hook back in but got it after 10 minutes of talking to it: lol:

Here's before:

Here's after

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR COLOUR BLIND YOU PROBABLY WONT NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE BELOW,

Yes in the above image i also thought the end cap had come out a different shade but its not, its the curve and way it catches the light.

IMG_20140816_165730_zpsewr5d2ck.jpg

Another subtle improvement if i do say so myself :)

While fitting the wiper VickiC has informed me that she will soon be making a comeback next week,

She says she's also going to create three guides on the forum specially for the women drivers.

When asked :lol: "what guides do you plan to create"

She replied:

1.

Filling windscreen bottle thingy under the bonnet,

2.

Diagnosing the correct fuel for your car at the pumps followed by putting in in the car yourself,

3.

Checking the oil level in the yoke,

I just hope she gets them all rite first time,

Looks pretty good to me,

Not sure if it would look that good on the tail lights but looks nice on the headlights,

Looks cool. Reckon it will work better with light coloured cars e.g Moondust silver.

thanks mate,

Ive got my build thread mirrored on a few forums, so compiled your images and mine of the FOC meet and put them in to one post in a formation that has each members pictures grouped together.

I now copy the post and paste it in to my build on the other forums,

All images in the post above are host on my own photobucket account so yoour bandwidth won't be effected by the spread of the images.
