Exclamation zxfresh's slow build

Hey guys, I'm back at FF with a new account, and new car. I doubt anybody remembers me (user: edmhatch / car: 07 black hatch). I've attended two of the FF meets, but when mom totaled her car, i offered mine to trade, so she wouldn't have to go without (my old car below)



After it got traded, i bought an infiniti g20 (loved), and after that, a galant (hated). after those I said f it, i want my focus back. so i found this for an unbelievable price, and its a 5Speed, so i had to get it. I'm not a fan of the color, bit i think if i add all black parts, i could pull it off (black rims, grill, black housing headlamps, tinted tails/windows, carbon hood/hatch). So this will be my build thread, any suggestions or comments are welcome, and much looked forward to. please feel free! Ok, that's it. Feels great to be back. on to the build: (small stuff first).
The new car:

Nice man! It's up to you if you want to clear the tail lights. Niteshade tends to fade over time but at least my experience has been that it stays relatively glossy.

side markers tinted and grill painted. for current low budget, visually it's coming together little by little. black housing headlamps soon, hopefully lower it soon. what y'all think so far?
