    Heya matey, good to see another Focus owner on here!

    I think i'm gonna have to buy another surround and have a go at blending in my screen too, looks cool.

    Wow. I love the contrast of the screen/bezel with the buttons. That is a really quality install. My hat is off to you.

    Wow. That bezel looks beautiful. How did you paint it/what kind of paint did you use?

    Also...I was thinking about getting some of those leds...how do they look at night?

    Well had the Opus catch fire the other day so had to return it and also the mainboard that got damaged, got it all back and have redone it a bit as follows:

    New Dash:

    Starter Button:

    Installed reverse camera:

    Got destinator embedded into centrafuse:


    And bought a centre console to mount all the switches etc instead of in the glovebox with the headunit. Also need to remount the remote for the headunit as the centreconsole replaced it!


    The boot is also going to change soon enough to integrate the pc better

    So I am getting there!
