Ok im afraid i might be over doing it with the black on my focus. I need opinions if you guys can visualize what this would look like.

This is what is planned for the car
Black Rims
Tints
Blacked out tails
Blacked out turn indicators
Replacing Blue Oval Emblems With Black Forld Emblems
And i plan on opening up headlight housings and painting them black
Black shorty antenna

Only other color i have planned is red undercar lights

I've thought about doing some of the same mods too, but I'll make sure my black rims has silver lips on them, maybe paint my calipers red too. Not sure about the black decals.

Dark window tint and even a silver pinstripe make a difference. Here's a pic of my old black 02 zx3 as an example. The car came this way when I bought it in 04. Used to constantly get compliments on how sleek it looked. Sometimes, the understated look works.

I owned a black car once. When it was clean it was sharp but it showed dirt too easy. I will never own another black car.

But it's your car. And I like your ideas I just wouldn't want to be the one to have to keep it clean. Personally I would use black wheels with a silver lip. And I think the idea of painting the calipers red is a good idea...would match your lighting...except you won't see too much of the red calipers at night when you can see the lighting.

kickstar (a member here) has a hot looking black focus. Check out her gallery: http://www.focusfanatics.com/gallery...cat=500&page=2

I've seen some all black rides that were pretty sick. If you're going for the police interceptor theme then all black is the way to go.

i like the idea man go for it, if i had a back car i would do the exact same thing, but i would do the black rims with the polised lip like posted above. iv got a white car and im doing all chrome head lights and tail lights to make my car all look one color too. good luck in your decisions and dont let peoples flaming discourage you, im getting it alot since i want some chrome tail lights.
