Looking good mate,

One thing I'd advise before further investment though,

Fit them and try close the bonnet,

If all is well the go ahead.

I purchased a set of E marked CSR light brows for the focus mk2.5

Paid to have them colour coded, removed the headlights and stuck them on,

All was fantastic,

Went to close the bonnet and.....

No

The stuck on brows were too fat to allow the bonnet close,

So took them off and like a Granny I painted on the brows instead.

Yeah I was thinking that when just placing them on today that they seem really close to the bonnet , hopefully all will be fine :-)

Thanks for the advice though Lenny!

Did you paint yours yourself then ?

No I can't paint mate I'm us less,

I had paid for them to be colour coded,

Then when they didn't fit, I used the chrome headlights while the black headlights were in the body shop getting the brows painted on.

So overall. Was out 100 quid between buying and spraying CSR Automotive headlight brows for them to be binned.

I see , worth it though because your ones look mad ! They have followed the existing line in the headlights haven't they where as these ones I have bought only cover half of the area yours do!

If that makes sense lol !

Hi all ,

Sorry i haven't posted much in a while. I have been on a little break in yarmouth just as a little warm up holiday before i head off to Tunisia in a week ;)

Any way... Today i have managed to fit the eye brows on, making sure that the bonnet doesn't catch on them which was a big concern. after Lenny pointed out this could happen..

when i fitted the brows they did look very close when the bonnet was closed so i loosened the headlights and adjusted them slightly and now have a decent amount of room in between the bonnet and the brows "phewwww"

they are fairly discrete, so i am actually pretty happy with them , not to in your face !

I am just waiting for the adhesive to dry, before i peel the tape off ... so here is what they look like at the moment :)

Hmmmm I have mixed feelings on them, well done on the mod tho! As long as your happy with them tho! I just think they arnt flush enough looking i like clean lines, less is more bla bla! Lennys are nice as they look subtle if you know what i mean!

But hey makes your car different/unique from the rest and thats always a plus in my book!

Cheers for the comments guys !

I would get mine like Lenny's but I don't want to copy him to much to be honest and plus with the money he spent on his I would rather get the rest of the body kit first but maybe later on I might we will see ...

I have just ordered the Rear Skirt... finally!!!
After seeing my dad doing a cracking job of spraying the front skirt, i decided to just grab a skirt that i saw on eBay today... Its second hand, but no cracks just a few minor scuffs. so will get my dad to refurb that too!

it was originally for sale on eBay for £140 + £10 postage... I managed to grab it getting £20 off .. so i thought that was fairly good.

I now need to find the rear tow eye cover... anyone know where ? or seen any on ebay?

front skirt is in the last stages of being finished so just being polished down... :)

Sounds good mate,

There may be a part number for the toe eye cover

You could always mould your own with some filler,

If you need some genuine for rivets for fitting these parts let me know as I have around 20

Going to need a refurb but no cracks or anything like that just a sand down and paint

I have decided to spray the diffuser part the ford sea grey as I already have that colour from my old focus , what you think?

i would gloss the under part and not leave it matted like they normally come..

this colour... grey metallic with sort of a slight hint of blue

post-42643-0-29810000-1378292250_thumb.j

Dad has primed it already! Decided to fit both parts when I get back from my holiday in a week..

Nice one cheers for the part number , and that's for the ZS yeah?

Thanks, even once the kit fitted will still be in the search for other mods so yeah I think the power fold mirrors will be a go ahead,

Cheers for looking at the thread and for the ideas :-)
