Looking very well mate! Surprising what a bit of colour can do!

Thinking of doing the same with my white zs did this take long and is it hard to spray the interior plastics????

Naa not really. Use u tube and search for (mk7 interior plastics removal) which was very helpful, then lightly rub down with some wet and dry sandpaper (800-1200 grit), then I used plastic primer (1-2 coats), wait 24 hrs and wet and dry again (800-1200 grit), then colour (2 coats at least), then I waited 30-45 mins and went straight on with clear laquer (2 coats at least) wasnt hard, just take ur time and spray in a warmish, dustish free area as u can get. Also put some rags down and some hooks up to store the parts whilst they are drying, and if ur like me and like to hold the piece that u are spraying then get yourself a box of disposable gloves for the hand holding the piece. If u havnt done much spraying before and not confident then start on something simple like the interior door handles as they are easy flat surface to spray. I am no expert, but enjoy doing things myself, which is part of the appeal to modding for me, so just give it a go. :D
Any questions just message me and I will try my best to help.

dan did you keep the chrome surrond on the front ford badge? i was thinking ive got new dmb gels to replace my old one, so i was going to paint the surrond gloss black and the badge or just blak wrap them? them apply the dmb on top think this will work? i need to find time first to do this tho haha

also how hard was the front grill? i have done all my own spraying before and done the interior on my fez, so in confident and have all the things to do it. im going to do the front upper grill first tho to see how it goes lol

Hi Daniel.
The chrome surround is still on the car because I stuck the badge on before thinking about painting the old badge black, and as you probably know, them badges dont come off very easily after being applied. I wish I had done this on mine as I think it would look loads better, and I cant see why you would have any problem painting yours, should b fine.
If you have done all your own painting on your car so far, youll have no problems spraying your grills. Just remember with the lower grill, you want to spray into the hole parts of the grill from every direction before doing the face part of the grill, which was time consuming but made sure that every side got covered. I done 1 coat plastic primer, 2 coats colour and 2 coats clear laquer. Also there is a video on u tube on how to remove the front grill which is very useful. Just search fiesta mk7 grill removal. It was fiddly but eventually falls out. Hope this all helps. Any other questions feel free to ask, I will try to help.
Also very nice to hear of others doing their own spraying, which does save money and is part of the fun of modding, even if it does go wrong from time to time. :D

I only had one insert on mine, but I did remove it to paint it, and sprayed the part under it so everything was painted. I would definately remove the 2 inserts on the Asian grill to paint them vision blue. Will look cool when finished. Definately would like to see some photos of it when completed. :D
