Picked up 4 cans PlastiDip got it from Menards it was the easiest place to get it for me since I work there and didn't pay dime for it since I still had my holiday bonus credit but they were $5.98 a can. Now just time for the weather to get warmer so I can dip my stock 17"s and the FOCUS & SES badge on the back then I'll be that much closer to my blacked out plans. Also Im thinking about getting black Ford logo badge overlays from TFB Designs or using Nightshade to tint them most likely the overlays so that I can remove them if I ever wanted to.

Finding a place in Omaha to PC them is going to be the problem. The only place I know of that does them is cost prohibitive. Might as well buy new wheels instead...

If you find another place to do them reasonably let me know though...

Eibach Sportlines. Appreciate the comments guys. I didn't know my pics are posting small as I'm doing this from Tapatalk. I'll see what I can go to get bigger pics up.

Looks clean. How is the ride?

Tapatalk is probably re-sizing them automatically.
