Panther Black :-(

20 March 2012 - 09:42 PM

Hi guys

Got a 'black' ford focus 2002 Zetec and i needed to spray front and rear panel. Rang Ford and asked them my colour and they said panther black, so....... I went to Halfords and got a couple of tins; however no one told me there are LOADS of panther blacks :-(

Found out my panther black is F8 (after spraying the car), so i went back to Halfords and they gave me my money back for the used tins lol and made me some F8 (very nice of them).

My question is....do I need to take off all the old paint before spraying with new F8 panther black? I used some wet and dry sand paper ready for the new paint, is that all i need to do?

Any tips on spraying? ohhhhh i almost forgot, i slightly went over onto the door panel (with the old paint) will i be able to blend in the new paint or do i need to remove it? or....do you think it will be worth it to just do the whole right hand side.

So i've got the bit around the petrol cap to do and the bit next to the side indicator, thinking i might just paint the whole side, what do you guys think.

Thanks guys

Door Mirrors & Silicone Kits

12 March 2012 - 08:37 PM

Hi Guys

Got a Ford Focus Mk1 2002 Zetec and thinking of getting DTM door mirrors (4 wire) and have a few questions (hoping u can help)

1. can i get ones with indicators and use the wire from the side lights for them?
2. Do i also need to purchase the base plate or will they fit directly onto mine?

I'm also looking at silicone kit and clips (not sure of size) to make inside my car look better, looked at a couple of kits but can someone point me to a website (or shop) that can supply ones for my car (where I can put in my reg or make)
