Focus Interior Makeover

I should have started this when I first began because it's been about 4 weeks into the project and I'm almost done. I'm doing an almost complete makeover on the interior of my focus.

I started out with a plain jane gray lx interior.

The car

I happened to find a fellow ff member selling these, I've been wanting them forever and the timing was perfect.


I'm doing almost everything but the dashboard. The SVT and rear seat is getting re-upholstered with new black leather and perforated blue suede inserts in tuck and roll and blue stitching. The headliner is being redone in black suede and the carpet is also torn out and replaced with black carpet. If I can get the matte black paint for plastics then I can do those and everything can be perfect.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can get em. I constantly get hounded from idiot kids in the tour groups coming in the school cause "it's just a focus". It's my baby and she's gonna look damn good.

I spent all day doing the final touches on my seat covers while another kid finished up my carpet. I took a few pictures at the end of the day and plan on starting the back seat tomorrow along with painting my trim pieces.

Paint For Dash & Trim

I used Rust Oleums Universal Satin Black on all my ABC pilars when I did my headliner. It sticks to plastic with out a primer. It also comes in Flat if you want no shine. YOu can get it at Home Cheapo.

BTW I know all that cause I work for Rust Oleum

I like everything your doing, should look really good when your done. Make sure to post pictures.

I'm not sure if it was rust oleum but I spotted a satin black plastic paint at wallmart so when I get a chance I'll be snagging a can or two for the job.

That will work. Just make sure you wash the plasitc before you paint it. Any type of grease or oil, like Armorall, will afect the adhesion of the paint.
