Get yourself an MK3 Focus badge for the rear. My personal feeling but I think bare looks bland. But looking good otherwise :D

Been awhile since I updated on my car.

Replaced the stolen parts and sprayed back up in black.

Installed a detachable tow bar, now looking at what to do with rear bumper.

The latest install is a autodab installation to the factory fitted satnav

Plan to make some mock ups in cardboard before continuing, need to work out sizing and thickness.

Plan to spray all the rear bumper bits at same time, so not sure how soon the colour will appear

Been awhile since doing anything on the Focus, but now have a few things being worked on.

1- EGR valve blanking as well as a well due service (hoping wishing the next week or 2)

2 - Working on a slightly different rear valance to fit on, especially as I already have a detachable towbar fitted. Looking at modding a Zetec S valance, removing the bits between the 'fins' and shortening the middle 1 or finding a good material to cut 4 fins

3 - grills, rear valance and b pillars to be resprayed

Blanked of EGR valve successfully after a friend fitted the blank in the wrong way lol

Also started wrapping my interior with silver carbon as the stereo surround and bits are all scratched up
