Sonic blue is the best color the focus came in in my opinion, but I might be just a little biased

No, the lock is still behind the body filler which is somewhat a problem because the filler is so thin in some places. That's why my first attempt cracked and broke out.

It would have been much better if the lock could have been taken out, but it looks like it is a permanent part of the latch. If you find a way to get it unhooked, let me know.

I'm still trying to figure that out. The shaved side indicators look like crap and I didn't do anything differently. Maybe it was just the smaller surface area for the badge.

FocusSport13 is as close as I've seen to a white Svt (even though it not an Svt) and it looks great. I don't know why they didn't make it. The new ST is coming in white.

At least they are not making the same mistake twice by offering the ST in white. But hey I'm biased with white lol.

Haha. You heard your name didn't you.

I don't know why, but I always hated the color white until I saw hot hatches in that color. I still don't like any other white cars but hatches are the exception. It's weird.
