you need to paint your calipers black seeing that youre going for the black and white look. and you will also need to tint the front window aswell

Ill be watching your progress. Looking for ideas for my own '12 SEL

Id go red with the calipers, just for some contrast. But thats just me.

I know you said you plasti dipped the rims, but is that what you did with everything else that your turning black? For example the fog light bezels.

How about a list of your planned mods?

Project Storm Trooper I approve lol, I wish Fords white looked the way it dose in pictures. In person it kinda looked like a cream color to me idk maybe I was going crazy but I like my silver and black lol its just not a Storm Trooper its ummm some other kind of Trooper

White Platinum is the cream/ beige looking white with a perlescent mid coat. Oxford white is just flat non metallic white afaik.

Or white calipers

Project torm Trooper was definitely the look I was going for. I have white caliper paint sitting in my room. Just waiting for a weekend to do it. Waiting for a my paycheck to get my windows retinted. I've got a lot planned for this focus. Just building up the funds now.

Yeah I have just plasti dipped everything else. I wanted to do something temporary until I decided for sure on what I wanted.

List of mods: lowering springs V-MAXX or Eibach, FSWerks cat back exhaust, steeda cai, reproduction st spoiler, front lip. Then just waiting for a tune to come out for this car, then possibly a turbo.
