The vinyl on the tails looks really good. I might have to steal that from you, although I might still just tint the whole light.

Going back a few posts, I think keeping the front lip, side rockers, and rear lower half of the bumper satin black will be better, since I think it makes the car look a bit slimmer, if that makes any sense. Side diffusers and a lower rear valence in black would be even better, since it makes the car appear a bit lower. Just my $0.019

Thanks!

We've been told that only 4,123 exist in that colour. Oddly enough, sedans outnumbered hatches though, by a lot.

There are a few in my area, but it's still uncommon to see them. I'm pretty sure a couple are within the neighbourhoods surrounding mine.

Tinting the whole light was the other option I was pondering, but I decided to keep it simple for now and try just a portion. Being vinyl, I can always change it later.

I completely understand what you're getting at. Just for me the practicality aspect is a major bonus, and it still looks good.

Tonight a quick detour on the way home allowed me to roll the Focus over to 10,000km and grab a picture.




Also as a comment on the lip in winter, it is NOT a snowplow. This was the one and only time I hit snow with it, and that was just a small pile of loose stuff.

This is partially why my Grand Prix is 20 years old and has 152,000 kilometers.

It's now just over 10,100. Is that better?

Throwback picture, because I'm bored. If I get an afternoon to myself I should get some real shots of this thing for fun, anything of late is off my phone.

I'm still daydreaming about ideas for next season too.

Seeing as how I still have a gift card good at some Ford dealers, I'm thinking of which OEM parts I could order. One idea I've had is to get a hold of the silver-accented outer vents, as seen in the higher models and now the ST.

Anyone know how to remove these? I haven't even taken a peek yet, honestly.



Meanwhile, I'm STILL debating a black roof too.

The black roof would look so slick I've been debating a pink one
