This will definitely add more kilowatts to your car now Lenny. Looks awesome! Gonna stick my kindly gifted sticker on the rear window, same spot as yours. Need to find a spot as well to stick my Focal sticker. Thanks again for the sticker man :)

cheers mate no prob, you could stick the focal decal on the top end of the rear window, above the sweep of the rear wiper,

I have an "eat, sleep, ford" logo there, if i hadn't i would have put the mcm decal there instead,

But its an option for you with the focal decal on yours,

Oh not a bad idea for the MCM decal. Now I have 2 options and one for the Focal one. Sweet! Cheers :)

Update:

After searching almost two years for a red Angry Birds red to hang from the rear view mirror,

I finally found one surprisingly cheap and in the form of an official Angry Birds air freshener,

Various birds available:

Red,

Black,

Yellow,

Each has its own scent, if anyone else has also been longing for one of these i can purchase and despatch if required.

: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

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.
