Took a few attempts on some old boys of trim from old cars.

Trick was slow and steady and just finding the right angle.

I sprayed a base silver over bits I was dipping, the kit then had the film and activator.

Used a old baby bath for most of it, and a old bath my neighbour was chucking for main console.

Clear coat and a good polish.

Due to the over spray in the cup holder, I used some old black paint and sprayed that up to

Wasn't happy with the wrapping so tried my hand at dipping my console.

There's a bit on the stereo surround which I slipped up on so will look at redoing, but otherwise happy with it :)

Zetec S lower grill now fitted and decided for now to put back in a set of stock fog surrounds.

 

Also have further plans for my console to get a nicer finish. Pics later in the week :)

Managed to pick up a new Zetec S lower grill today from a independent Ford dealership which is closing down and only paid £27 :)

Now just need the rest of the kit to go with it now

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

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

I'm looking about 10-12mm and 70-80mm squares with 4 across the bumper to allow for my towbar I have installed
