Very true. I'm just using it as a template to get a basic understanding of how the swap will go. It's tough to visualize it without actually laying underneath the car and thinking "ok, that's there and this goes there and etc" which is something I'll be doing soon. I thought it was just a well put t...

Hmm. I know for some Focus applications you use double sided tape. Not the 3m body stuff, but the very thin Scotch type. I used the thin double sided scotch tape when I had indiglos on my contour. Worked like a champ and was easily removable. On the other hand, I had different style hvac/headlight ...
