[qu="Stoney871" post="274269" timestamp="1373572071"]I'd assume you reached the total for your free storage then?
I'm at about 55%, how much did they sting you for extra storage and how much more do they give you?[/quote]
Hi mate,
I hadn't reached my storage limit at 10GB but the stopped me on band witch at 11GB free limit per month,
So I now pay 30 dollars per year for 20GB storage and unlimited bandwidth
So people feel free to download my content as much as you want lol I'm paying for the server usage :-D

lol thanks mate,
Took some figuring out on how to avoid spraying over the wrong areas but the sanding disc on the dremil sort of melted a thin top layer of plastic to the tape when sand down, so it really helped the outcome
The red paint used is from Renault lol was the only red available in my local motor factors,
Next I need an ink cartridge refill Syringe and some ford badge blue to inject a small layer in to the ford logo
Hopefully allow the silver ford stay above the layer of blue.

Lenny really like the engine cover paintwork. When you get the ford logo painted it will look fantastic. Is there an engine cover available for the 1.6 petrol as I would to try this out for my own focus. Honestly it looks great.

the engine cover for the 1.6 was my first ever question on here LOL ..
i think the end result of that topic was that some models had them and some didn't ... not many of the petrols do, but the diesels tend to come with them more often...
i think ford discovered that the petrols are more prone to over heating with them on ( i think )
i am sure if you have a really hard look you may be able to find an engine cover for yours but you are looking at around £40 ish

Thanks Ollie
If there is a chance it may cause overheating I might leave it but I will keep an eye out.

My 1.6TDCi didn't come with the engine cover neither,
I bought it from a 2007 focus on eBay, ford dont fit the engine cover to the 2008-2010 1.6TDCi it doesn't even appear on there system as being a part that would fit the facelift model,

I've created a guide on fitting the cover to the engine it lists all part numbers for bolts and nuts required,

That is very interesting to hear Lenny as my car is the same model year as yours, 2010 but was a UK spec car that was imported here. It came with an engine cover, which is not a major part in a car IMHO. Again, I feel that us here in Ireland get the wrong end of the stick when it comes to basic car packages. It seems to me that most cars in the UK are better specced than their Irish equivalent. For the amount of money we spend on cars here, it's a real pity to see us consumers getting less than our counterparts across the pond.

+1 mate
I've saw a 2010 Focus ST in local dealers carbon inserts on dash but to my surprise No Sony in the centre,
Was a same old 6000CD
If I bought an ST I'd expect UK spec,

Small update:
I've removed the crucked passenger side stripe and fitted a correctly aligned replacement with the assistance of ''VickiC''

Old stripe:
