I'm sure it's primered. It's white from the factory. The whole car looked like this (except the roof). Gave me sleepless nights I tell you!
Wish I actually had the stamina like Elizabeth, I've never waxed my car.

Do a larger muffler up in the straight section at the start if you want it quieter.
Can't fit anything larger in the tunnel, unless it's longer....I was referring to a muffler like the stock ST one, offset side entry and middle exit then attach tips to it. :)

Put some silicone on all the door rubber gaskets etc.

Took me a few days. I am an old bag, weak and decrepit. So I worked on the job until I go tired. then back on. off. By today I felt stronger, and was able to finish it all up today.
Winter puts a crimp in my overall stamina. Being retired and damn lazy in genera.. lBut things are looking like SPRING!

Also did not feel like driving with day after day of rain here. So the wax job idea came up.
Hilarious post! :)

You remind me of my mother in law, she's been retired for 10 years and is more busy in retirement then when she had two kids, job and all that going on. :P

ACHRO When i see a 2008-11 focus with the black headlights or the smoked/darker taillights i would love to pull them over and say " Sir/Ma'am, I am with the Focus Anonymous Group. We do regular inspections of these cars to make sure everything is sound.. please pop your hood and trunk. Thanks!"

Then just swap out mine for theirs...
