No worries mate, the bulbs you need are BA15s (aka 382 or P21W) indicator bulbs in chrome. The seller I used for mine no longer does them, but search the bay for chrome BA15s and any of those will do. Here are the cheapest one's sorted by price, they will be spot on...

I've just removed the orange lens cover in my headlights, but if you wanted to do a real neat OEM-look job you can fit clear lenses from the Mk1.5 Focus. They need a bit of cutting and modding to fit, and then glue in place. I actually have a pair lying in the shed somewhere, but I didn't have a rotary tool or the patience to do it by hand when I had my headlights split. But if you have a spare pair of headlights that you're not in a panic to get refitted, might be an idea to fit the lenses too while you've time?

Or through the seller's direct website to save the P&P/ebay fees...

I also put in silver side repeater bulbs to lose the fried egg look in my crystal repeaters, but not sure if you need them with the smoked lenses?

Not sure what to do with my grilles...sometimes I think the black looks well when I see other people's pics, then other times think I wanna leave them standard. With mine being the final facelift chrome versions too, might be too much of a contrast between chrome and black. I def want to do the lower lip though, even though I've the chrome strip on the lower grille too. Actually tried it in a gunmetal shade of plasti-dip, hoping it would match my wheels, but came out far too light and didn't look right at all, so came off pretty sharpish and really need to have a go with black.

 

Absolutely love that splitter by the way, just don't think it would last too long on some of the roads I be on! Don't even have my Eibachs in yet, lying in a box in a shed for a couple of months at this stage!

 

Cheers for the repeater info pal, already have them in my Watched Items so will get a pair ordered now I know they're decent quality.

Get those headlights de-tango'd and blackeye'd mate, will finish off that frond end perfectly! Grilles and fog surrounds sprayed a matching black might complete the colour scheme. And you ever think about doing the centre bottom lip in black too? Either wrapped or sprayed.

 

Loving the progress, giving me ideas!

 

You got a link for those repeaters by the way? Have seen a few on the bay but worried they'll either not be dark enough or else be a poor fit, so would ideally like to get ones that I know will be good!

Ah no worries at all Hassen, after I picked up the Mondeo I tended to spend more time over on STdriveRS as there was more goin on for the Mondy, here was different class for the Focus though. Just kinda drifted away then and logged in the other day for the first time in months.

 

Haha, cheers for the offer, but if I bailed at this stage of the game I could be needing a real sick-note the next time the lads got their hands on me!

 

Dylan will probably be passing through my neck of the woods too en route. :(

Well lads, looks like I've been away too long, completely missed this! After a few years on here with no meets, I turn my back for a few months and this happens, gutted! Have football tomorrow that I can't get out of at this stage, properly sickened. The Mondy might have looked well stuck in the middle of all the Foci!
