I never understood why Ford wouldn't build a Focus that color with the black interior, though. How is the "light stone" interior holding up? I like the look when its new, but would have been worried about keeping it looking that way.
I don't know why they restricted the dark interior in the Focus, but made Frosted Glass only available with the dark interior in the Escape.

The interior could use a vacuuming probably, but otherwise seems to be holding up well, although I only usually use the driver's seat. Right now the car is a bit fuller than usual given the parts that I have for my next unique project.

I think you mean quarters since you've listed "three halfs".

I prefer the medium light stone for not heating up as much in the summer vs the black interior.

I have got to find a paint shop though, and that's been proving slightly difficult over the holiday weekend. I'm not looking forward to going into work tomorrow as I want to kick the project into gear, but I'll have to see what I can do.

I like it a lot, but I should being that It's mine.
