Yeah that should be fine. The ST / RS bonnet lips are the same as the rest of the Focus 2.5 models.

just wrap it carbon black or plain black rather than spraying its plasticised chrome i think if it is than its like painting anything else just needs rubbed down unless its actual metal chrome ide go with the cheapest and wrap

Sorry to dig this one back up, but I can't find an answer to a question I have.

Has anyone got a photo showing what the bonnet looks like without the lips? Are there holes in the bonnet to fit said lip?

I'm looking at doing this mod myself and want to explore possibilities. Failing that, I'll sand it and spray it.

Cheers!

Kye

Yes if you open your bonnet up you can see where the fixings come through to keep it on

I thought that might be the case. Bugger.

I don't have the car yet, just thinking ahead. :) The chrome is god awful though! Matching it to the bonnet colour make it look more ninja for certain.

Massive improvement with that alone. The changed lower grill looks good too. Breaks up the Basking shark look.
