Then what to do about the chrome strip along the belt line ? Prep it for paint ? Or is there a replacement in black ?

Here's a sterling grey titanium debadged! All I needed was a hairdryer, and I used a little dental floss to help pull the tags off. I think the lines on the trunk flow even better now. Thanks to all who have posted the tips for doing this!

SE's have black trim around the windows. Seems like the black headlights and fog housings would be a nice compliment.
A friend has an SEL and he would like the black window trim. We looked at it today and it looks like the only tricky part would be the rear 1/4 window trim/glass, looks like it may be all one piece.
I would have to do something with the chrome trim on the grill, maybe have it painted black or sterling ?
Had all the emblems on our Mustang painted body color and they have held up very well.

The chrome belt line is the reason why I don't want to buy anything lower than an SEL. It makes the car look much higher in class, which I absolutely love.

+1. It really picks up the sunlight well.

Here's my 2012 Focus SE in Tuxedo Black. Love the way it looks, and the 5-speed is very fun to drive. I'm also consistently getting nearly 37MPG, but I'm sure I can get closer to 40 if I really work at it.

I let mine sit in the sun and then just peeled it off. Used goo-gone to remove some sticky stuff, then hit it with some wax. Can't tell anything was there

Looks nice Charlie! Wish a standard tranny was an option on the SEL's. But I enjoy the selectshift.

Wow, nice! I like how the wheel center cap blue works with the paint.
