Decided to one up everyone who is getting stock TI foglight bezels or plasti dipping them and color match







These are a couple pics to tease while they dry Pulling them off was a BITCH! I really need to get into a place with a garage so I don't have to do this crap in an apartment parking lot any more...lol

I'll post pics of them on more than likely tomorrow.

Here's just to see how well it matched up. I still need to wet sand and clear coat. Took this shot before I went to bed:



Matches quite well

white headlight housings would be sick. i've never seen it done!

the color match looks awesome.

i agree with taking your plate off. i don't believe it's illegal in TX to not have a front plate.

Damn it Derrick...why you always gotta ruin everything!

lol j/k Thanks man. Yeah I planned on it...Have yet to see color matched headlights on a white Focus and I'm sure it's going to look really good. Just have to get enough money in my pocket to spend on a new headlight in case I screw it up...lol

Thanks...TX it's illegal, but both me and my wife ran with no plates for a year and some change here without any issue (yet ) The thing is though that it's ugly when you have it off cause of the thing you mount the plate to. I have plans with that too when I get a garage and more supplies

I'm still waiting for a day to clear coat my bezels. Weather out here has been crap! So, sort of in the meantime, I chopped off my "lunchbox":
