This is how our Australian Focus will look when it starts coming out of Thailand. The damn thing is different again. We get badges now too. Still prefer the Zetec S though.

I thought you would like that. It should be easier for me to get information on these parts when the cars start arriving here in Sept.

Awesome, that is what I want to do.

Did you do any special prep? How many cans?

Used about 1/5th of a can. Scuffed the areas to be painted with scotchbrite. I did do some simple masking of the rubber muffler hangers and areas behind the muffler.

5 minutes of scuffing, 10 minutes worth of masking and 2 minutes of painting. I didn't paint too far above the visible area.

You might consider a degreaser if yours is filthy. I forgot to degrease but it's holding strong after 10 months. Gave it a non-masked refresh coat a month ago.
