Hi All,
I assume most of you will be tucked up in bed right now as i type this, but as for me, I am on a night shift, I hope you all feel my pain, no? I didn't think so...
Anyways, I have read it before and I can't remember where or who mentioned it. but yes, I have another rear valance question!

What is the colour code for the lower part of the rear valance, IF* I was to get the grey?

I have a silver focus and want to know what colour you all think would be best best! I think I like the grey colour that seems to be most popular on the zetec s kit!
I do like black that some have, however I am fussy and I think that at some angles and at night it's not clear to see that there is anything there (if that makes sense)
Now you all may be thinking why ask us if you like the grey LOL!! answer - I want other people to like my car as well as myself..so what you guys think will look best others should like too :-)
What do you all think...????

Ollie mate we have a lot in common,
I am working nights this week too 11-7 and I haven't slept a wink since 8am yesterday,
Their is no set colour for the diffuser section.
I went to halfords and picked up a can of ford moondust silver, which is my car colour.

I then picked up other cans of gray to find a good contrast.
So I went with peugeot graphite gray,
I bought 3 cans of it and give them to the body shop to spray the section.
They only used 2 cans so I had kept the reciept and returned the left over can and bought some wax lol

Here is mine:

Ah Lenny I feel for you then mate, nights absolutely kill me! Especially when it gets to about 3am !!
Right ok, I will have a look for a similar colour then I think however I may go a tad lighter..
Thanks for your help yet again :-)

I have got to go on hunt soon for a local body shop to spray my body kit at a reasonable price !
I am just after the 5dr sides, !Removed! impossible they are no where to be seen..

My two colleagues don't complain or get unhappy although sometimes they do whine (and bark).

I do 7 shifts 3 back then 4 nights 7.30 till 9.00 then 3 off then 2 backs 2 days 3nights so i know how you feel

Ive seen a few focus with the rear spoiler some black which looks a bit odd to be honest a silver one on a silver car lennys graphite looks a good bet and will suit all colours or you could carbon wrap it but it may look a bit tacky

Looking extremely good lenny

Thanks Arthur,
DMB have supplied some matching grey Ford GT side stripes should be here anytime now.

I've requested Wednesday night off work as I'm heading to ford on Thursday,
Can't get the whole night off so I'm in 11-3am lol why can't I do 7pm-11pm instead
The whole point was to sleep that night.
I'll collapse in the show room floor.

Can imagine:
Sales man opens side door on the B-max
And there's lenny snoring his head off in a puddle of slobber lol
