There is a whole thread about the footwell lights in that various spec have the holders in place already and all you do is out the bulbs in

The improved H/Lamps are a worthy addition as well

Front mudflaps are also useful if only to protect the sills from stonechips

spraying the fog surrounds it quite easy, you need plastic primer, prob best then to use high build primer so that you get a smooth surface to spray your base coat on to. just let each coat dry well, you can run the high build primer down easily to get rid of any imperfections

OOH ER MRS

Thing is thePerfectit 3M stuff is quite expensive, but it brings up the paint real nice. Gotta do a friends mini cooper on friday after they say the cmax they wanted it done. Use lots of water with the 3m stuff you cant go in dry as you could burn the paint.

Cheers Lawe, thanks for your reply.

I changed my wooden interior trims as they don't look very exiting! I covered my passenger dash trim with aluminium foil tape which is used in roofing. This is quite tricky to use but after a few attempts it looks a lot better and cheaper than buying from a Ford dealer. To finish it off I purchased from Ebaythe small Ford emblem which is situated on the flip key remote and attatched it to the left hand side of the trim. This has finished it off well.I will post some pics soon.
I coveredthe gear lever wood trim in carbon fibre sheet also found on Ebay.

Along with the carbon fibre sheet I changed the gearknob for the aluminium one.

The aluminium foil tape has come in handy as I've also covered the front fog light trim ring in it too! This now looks like the latest Ford Focus/Mondeo ST type trim. As I'm happy with the way it looks the next thing is to buy the aluminium rings from Ford and adapt them to fit mine. They are £15 each from Ford.

Hope these little tweaks has helped, cheers
