Looking forward to joining a new crowd of Focus forum fanatics!
Hey HCAutoDetail, did you, or your wife, back into something and dent the rear lunchbox part of the exhaust or is it just my imagination.

Does anyone know how the white plastidip matches Oxford white? I was thinking of trying it with the glossifier to add some shine. Just checking to see if it has already been done.

Yep, picked up the Focus as a DD/commuter car. I sold my Corvette a few months ago. I'll be putting in an order on a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon in 3 weeks, which will obviously become my weekend warrior / project car.

Quick question.
I've recently noticed the Platinum White Tri-Coat application is far from even across the body.
Anybody know why the B-pillars (behind the opened doors), door jambs, and interior sills are simply ordinary Oxford White? I am not expecting the metallic application in every area (like the engine bay), but I was expecting a bit more "glitter" application.

I know I shouldn't compare, but my 2001 BMW 740i has an Oxford Green Metallic finish everywhere except the engine bay and the spare wheel well. I guess my expectations were a bit high.

Does your BMW have a tri-coat finish? Most metallic finishes aren't a multi-layer application like Platinum Tri-coat. My Sterling Grey Metallic is metallic on all surfaces too, but it's not applied like Platinum is.

Mine is like yours ... no extra glitter in the door jambs either
