Hoppe's MK3 build updates.

Well, so far here are the modifications I have made. This build is to make my Focus purely a show car for now, so don't expect many HP improvements yet. I'm waiting a few years to start building it up heavy under the hood.

I have done some minor painting to the trim and side mirrors, and painted the exterior to match the interior. (black and white theme)

Here are my mods so far
-KN 69 Series Typhoon CAI

-3D Carbon Lip Kit

-Remin Interior dash kit, Door kit, and exterior kit (Real Carbon Fiber)

-Thundergrille LED's as well as factory upgrade for interior lighting, also installed some LED's for the rear floor panels as well.

-Spec D Angel Halo Headlights

-Plasti dip rim's and hood (only temporary, painting rims and wrapping hood soon to match the theme)

-Partially tinted Rear tail lights (thinking of painting the tint to white, good idea or bad?)

-30% side and rear window tint

I also have the FSWERKS stealth cat back exhaust but have not installed it yet due to a shortage of money.

Some ideas I have is to make the car a venom theme possibly but not too sure yet. It would be pretty hard to pull that off. Also if anyone has any other ideas I would greatly appreciate constructive criticism only.

Thanks :) I ordered the headlights off of Autoanything.com great website for prices although you might have to wait a little while for the shipment. There is also headlights by Spyder that cost like 40 bucks extra but I don't believe they are plug and play like the ones I ordered.

Other than the C/F interior touches, I don't like it. Way too busy.

My bad I mixed websites up, that's where I ordered my lip kit. I ordered the headlights off of protuninglab, I hope this helps you.

This. I think its the white painted trim. It doesn't look so clean. But his car though kudos for being different?

Well I painted it white for 2 reasons. To match the interior and also because I can't afford to have it professionally painted tuxedo black haha. I would rather spend 50 bucks on primer paint and clear coat and have it look like this than roll around with a grey lip kit until I could afford to get it painted haha. And its still a complete work in progress you guys have to keep that in mind. I'm going to keep trying different things until I find out what works best.

The carbon fiber, headlights, and intake look good. The rest of it looks like awful. Especially those grill lights.
