Hi
Bought this car 2004 Focus and I am noticing this pattern in the mornings. Is it a history of funky decals ? Has it got a chequered past of track racing? Car seems fine. I'm curious though as it came with v little history.

That pattern matches the bonnet reinforcing frame on it's underside.
It's most likely due to the differences of temperature caused by the reinforcing staying warm for longer and drawing condensation.
Do you have a bonnet liner fitted?

Ah yes. Obvious really. Thanks.
Not sure about the liner. Is it worth fitting ? (I'm not worried about the condensation pattern)
