2002 Ford Focus SVT

Just picked up a 02 Focus SVT that needs maintance love.

Its in the shop right now getting a clutch / timing belt / new tires / and check engine light... I have only driven it a mile and it was pretty peppy. Oh and it only has 95k on speedometer... Its red.... with Black and red interior. Paint is in good shape other than the clear coat pealing on front and rear bumper... I got it for a good deal I think ....

Should I just have the bumpers resprayed or can they buff the clear coat off because the paint appears ok just alittle faded.

thanks don

Welcome.

I guess if your really careful getting the clear off, that's all you really need to do. This obviously wouldn't fix any fading or stone chips that may be on the bumper, but if your not going for spotless show car quality, just a clear coat may be perfectly fine for you. Just make sure you clean the base coat really well before spraying clear coat becuase the exposed areas have probably had years of grime building up on it.

My svt is the same color and had the same paint issue on the rear bumper. I used the duplicolor spray paint in vermillion red. Sanded, masked, sprayed, then used the duplicolor clear. You have to look really close to see that anything has been done. 40 dollars total materials and a weekends time. Looks way better than flaky clearcoat. The prep work, sanding and buffing the finished product are the keys here

Im really new to the svtf... thanks for the link I will check it out.

The previous owner put lots of aftermarket parts on it... rather than do preventative maintance... thats what Im taking care of now. What little I have driven it, its seems pretty peppy.
