First "mod" complete...
 
Debadged the rear. No Flex Fuel, No Focus, No SE, and definitely no more dealer crapola.

Tools of the trade. The big die is actually a dollar store eraser. Excellent for peeling away the gunk left behind when the stickers are peeled up.

The Sterling Gray Metallic really pops in the right lighting. TONS of metallic!

Sad that Focii are now bigger than FOX Mustangs. :(

It always starts small before you know you have a grand in mods or more

Haha ^^ this

Very nice mod. I love clean hatches.

And tint is done too. Went 15%. I'll get some better angled pics later. Had nowhere to take him to get pics. The local parks are full of bicycle groupies. :-\

Dealer stickers are left at the dealer as well as their paper plates & license plate frames -

When the porter goes out to detail the car right before sign off they remove their junk. No free advertising.

People look like fools for driving around with dealer stickers on their car.

I completely agree, IDare. I hate the crap. These people even put an "Emergency Contact" phone number list in the driver's door jamb area. I pulled that and the factory tire specifications sticker while I had the hairdryer handy.

Do you tell them not to even bother putting it on? Or make them take it off before you drive away?

My dealer uses lic. Plate frames with the promice that if u advertise for them ur oil chg is free. Sorry, no dice. I prefer my vehicles advert free

I took the sticker off of my Focus. Those things are on there good! Tried floss and heat gun and it took over an hour.

I'm still working on removing the dealer license plate frames. Those are not legal in NYS
