Operation Blackout

Hi Guys - I recently hit a deer with my 2013 ford focus - sterling grey color and decided (have wanted to since the start) to black out my DD. In the plans are

HID's - 6000 with 55w Ballasts - so i can see the deer better haha (have)
Euro Style Headlights - were cheaper than oem (have)
Tinted windows - 50% tint all the way around - so i can have privacy (December 17th is install date)
Powdercoated stock 5 spoke wheels - to promote my business (will be done by myself since i powder coat)
Calipers as well will be powder coated
Making a rear dissfusser as was as a front plate and powdering that black - better MPG - commute is 108 miles daily (round trip)

This is my fairly simple build thread, going more for looks and to promote my powder coating business

Any tips let me know!

It should turn out well once I decide if I want to go with a matte, a flat, a semi gloss, or a high gloss, or a mirror gloss black look on the rims haha

stay away from the flat black, they just tend to look dirty all the time. if you are promoting your wares, do something a bit fancier than flat black
