Looks great man, but it looks like you didn't reinstall the grill right or something.
It seems to be sticking out farther than before.

used the torch on the chrome. The chrome is like foil and will bubble and or peel back then you peel off the chrome, sand wit 120 till even cause you will melt some plastic primer and paint. I used adhesive promoter. Worked great. I bought standard white semi gloss. When i redo it. It will be paint match.

Actually, it DOES look great!

And I'm really digging the eyelids - something that I absolutely HATE on any pre-'05 (i.e. MKI) Focus...
