I looked at the picture and said that looks like the Parkway Ford building
The new "race red" was my first choice , they couldn't find me one right away so ended up with Oxford White

|martxxx||Hi guys, been trying to follow this thread but a little confused. I have a new UK candy red Focus zetec s (November 2013). It came with a paint blemish, but Ford will be fixing that. I managed to get a stone chip on the hood (bonnet for those in UK). I took it to a local Honda approved body shop (couldnt afford Ford body shop prices), and they painted the whole panel. What my car appears to be is a tri-coat pearl finish with a hint or flake in it like other posters have said - but the new painted panel is heavily flaked metallic. Would the bodyshop have used U6 instead of RZ or vice versa?|

This is the most snow my Focus has seen this year.

Plastidip or vinyl are what most people seem to do to take care of the chrome trim.
EDIT: Looks like the thread about nightshading your headlights didn't get added to that list...here is the link:

$150-250 is generally the going rate fro a good job and make sure you get a lifetime warranty with the work from a reputable shop.
Not a big fan of chrome either so I plasti-dipped my foglight bezels and then applied a semi-gloss clearcoat over them so it doesn't look like the Dip and offers a little more protection and it can be removed still. Next up will be covering the chrome whiskers and eventually would like to buy a set of the black headlamps but not a priority unless I can find them for a deal.

Hey everyone I'm new to this. I have a 2012 SEL Sedan that's ruby red. I live in wisconsin, so our tint laws are horrible. 50% in front, 35% sides and back. Not 100% sure on the back. Either way I want to do 35% all around. There's a lot of crappy places around here that are quoting me anywhere from $80-150. What should be the going rate to get my car done?
Also, I absolutely hate the chrome that's on the car. I hear everyone says, "You paid for that look so why not keep it." I want to make the chrome black and I'm not sure what I should do to accomplish this. I was told that I could plasti dip it. I'm leaning towards doing that so it's not a permanent option. Are there other ways I could do this?
Does anyone know if you can black out the headlights? Again the chrome is ugly as hell in my opinion. I've heard of take a heat gun to them and then nightshading them or something like that. How hard is it to take the chrome piece around the fog lights off?
Long story short, I don't know how long I'll have this car. I'm a full-time college student, so I don't have bags of money to get a ST right now. Any help would be appreciated.
