Not sure where Des got his from, but don't think they were particularly cheap. I found mine on Ebay as part of a bundle of stuff, which the seller just named "Fiesta Lights", so went unnoticed by people looking for morettes I would imagine.

There's a set on Ebay at the moment:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1

but my guess is that they'll go up by a bit yet.

Suppose it's just waiting and keep on looking around... they're a love it or hate it mod, so I guess people get bored occasionally and sell them. I'm yet to decide whether I'm going to keep mine, so if I don't I'll be looking for offers before FITP. 8-)

Like that would happen, I remember people asking that when I first joined FT, "how can I get a badboy bonnet over morettes", and still noones managed to get it to work :lol:

Step one, darken the mesh in the middle, then put the ford logo on as you have in the shop.

Step two, get the fog lights from ESP, and get em stuck in the side pods, theres too much mesh going on at the front, and the fog light units looks really good in the 12 bore bumper.

You knows it makes sense, makes such a difference to the Si too :)

I really appreciate the ideas and suggestinos guys, but its really not as simple as just going and doing it - it all costs money, and despite having a job, I have spent this months quota. Will be on same wage packet for FITP, get paid the week after.

Will get pics of what I get done tomorrow :)

Thanks for your comments people :)

Does look a lot better, much more toned down. All I did was cut out a template from card of the ring and the Ford writing, then placed them on the mesh using bue-tac (this attatches to the mesh really well), and sprayed the rest of the mesh black. The template stopped the paint going onto the mesh, and hence, left the Ford logo :)

Morettes rock 8-)

I got mine for ?110, and they were absolutely mint. Got em off Mike-Telford on FT, he put them on Ebay, and I was sure I was going to win, and did. All the wiring and even the instructions were complete :D

Went and collected them within an hour of winning the bid :D
