Thanks guys, havent done the door strips yet but I will be doing them wen the weather is better. That will be a pain I think because ive heard they dont come off too well :/

Ye it seems to blend allot better now, I think I just need a chrome grille from the zetec model to set it off nicely.

Thanks

Looks well buddy, good job! You could do the grille as well, and lower front and rear bumper valances, rear bumper insert, door strips/handles and spoiler. I have a chrome grille though so drop me a PM if you're interested.

They look good mate :) would love to do mine but the amount of different trim dressings and Sealants and potions on there would take me a month to scrub off to prep lol

They didnt take too long to do really. Abit of effort rubbing them down, i have actually done the wing mirror covers twice as the first time i didnt do enough prep on them and they looked shaby. Its true what they say about how important prep work really is. I just hope we get some decent weather so i can have a go at the door trims :/
