My 2013 red focus build
 
I started out with a 2013 we with the sport package and I didn't have a camera until recently so no pictures not modified. I put on steel wheels with winter tires. I warped some interior trim, I'm not decided on whether to do the rest and what colour to use.

I decided to black out fog light bezels. When prepping I noticed that they take a brushed finish really well.

I liked the brushed enough to use it on the focus emblem which I moved. I left the edges flat black.

In the spring I will be doing a st front bumper swap

Cant wait to see what the ST bumper is going to look like on a sedan.

There is someone who is doing it now due to a deer hitting his car. I didn't want the st, otherwise I would have gotten one for the bumper.

Figured I'd try and get a decent picture of the underglow I installed and happened to find an st.

It just makes me want the front end swap as soon as possible. This is the first st I have seen around here. To think its an st2 and the sticker says $38,000. Now that I've seen one I'm entertaining dreams of centre exhaust.

Focus badge looks out of place, interior wrap and underglow look too "boy-racer" Just curious - why 2 different colors? Even though underglow lighting is not my taste, 1 color looks better than multiple colors.

Shoulda done tint, Ti headlights and the ST bumper that you want so bad before anything else, jmho. Either way, you like it so "keep it up"[thumb]

Under glow because I think it's dumb and I like people's reactions. I changed the emblem cause I blacked it out then thought what if it was moved. The two colours because Canada and I thought its kinda like the flag. I'm just having fun at this point and the cost so far isn't taking away from my bumper fund.

Mostly it's good to be different[headbang]

I agree that it's good to be different. Funny how I have never liked underglow, but the biggest pet-peeve of mine with your car is the Focus badge lol.

Keep the ST bumper fund going, I would love to see one on a sedan. What are you going to do for the rear? Does any company make lips for the sedan rears that would help make the ST bumper flow better. Would also be nice to see a center-exit on a sedan.

The only rear that I remember seeing for a sedan is like the European dual exhaust. I am planning also on a rear skid plate/ diffuser so this weekend when I get under the car to take measurements I plan on removing the lower bumper and seeing about maybe altering stock piece. I have plenty of fibreglass and resign left from the last sub box I made. But I would rather get a one piece fibreglass or plastic piece.

I haven't spent a whole lot of time looking at my car from behind so maybe someday the badge will get moved or removed entirely.

Eventually someone (aftermarket) will show the sedans some love

Show the world that sedan drivers are people too, they'll catch on ;)
