A faster way to avoid overspray on wheels is using plain notecards. Just line them around the wheel and it saves so much time! How is the plastidip holding up to the brake dust. I feel as though the porous surface would make it hard to clean?

They've been good so far, but I haven't really driven the car all that much since putting them on. It has been about two months with them now, and roughly 6 weeks of those saw the car in storage.

Roughly 1200 km in the last year. I'm going to need to drive it more next season.

Every new year I continue the countdown to this old sedan becoming a classic. 21 years young now.

Wow. Hadn't seen this yet. This car is CLEAN! Reminds me of an 80-sum Plymouth Horizon that I wanted for my first car last year. (not looks-wise, but cleanness to oldness-wise). It was all original red with full red interior, 1 owner and 87k original miles. Still wish I got it but I love my Focus!

Love and care can go a long way.

Nice! Treat them right and these old W-Bodies will return the favour.

Don't get to see too many of those in my area but they are nice indeed.
