Reminds me a bit of the Steeda Focus. Good look though. Rich Ford is installing some offset custom stripes for me on Tues.

Demskeetskeet, Your car looks great! I'm thinking of tinting and putting red caliper's on my black Focus Ti, what did you use to do the red and what are the tinting specs?

Thanks!

Rear windows 20%, front 35%. I have a black leather interior so it's perfect. I wanted fronts to be a little lighter so I can trick the cops into thinking its factory.

Autozone VHT Caliper paint. $8 with tax. Covers very well & dries extremely fast.

I've never done anything like that with the calipers and wouldn't know how to only paint them. Can you give me some idea of how to best paint them (prep and what not) and if I need to take them off?

Thanks! $8 is hard to beat!

You'll have to take your wheels off first, the paint dries quickly and is much better if you do two at a time.

I did the front two first by putting the car up on jack stands, took off my wheels. I then rubbed down the entire caliper with mineral spirits on a rag. Didn't do any scrubbing as my car is washed every week and it's only around 6 months old anyways.

I then taped off the drum first, then rotated it so the tape was under the caliper(Keeps the drum clean). Then I continued to tape everything around it off and was careful with over-spray so I didn't spray the wheels wells, frame, etc.

Once it is all taped off put on a light coat, go to the other side put on a light coat, then back to the first caliper, spray on a medium coat, then back to the 2nd caliper, spray on a medium coat, etc. Go until it is all covered. Don't put it on too heavy to start as it'll run. It dries within seconds so if you can only do one caliper at a time then spray a light coat, wait 10-20 seconds, spray a medium coat, and continue to spray until you're satisfied.

I ended up with a light coat, and two medium coats and it was covered well. It looks more professional if you tape in behind and around where it has the Ford logo.

Don't panic, it is really fool-proof(Not saying you're a fool )

Just lowered the car with Eibach Pro springs, added the Steeda rear sway and 18" Black Ice wheels.
