lookin good....and no the hood doesnt look high to me ...there needs to be a gap for the intake, but you can always adjust the hood height with the stops/bumpers

Tried doing the 'ST mouth' on the Focus, didn't work out so well as the masking wasn't proper or crisp. Just removed it, might just keep that part looking normal.

Awesome, thanks. Wasn't sure if it was norm or not. I didn't really ever look at it before when the grill was chrome, so maybe the black just made it appear to be higher.

I'll be dipping some more stuff over the next few days. Possibly the headlights and some interior work that will most likely get painted over. Although the latter didn't work out too well today.

From what I've heard, no. Not unless you have a loose end somewhere. I'm yet to clean mine, but I do know that I have a small loose end that would probably cause it to tear, so I'll have to re-do that prior to washing the car.
