Well see, now that I have snow tires, it won't come. Mother Nature will work against me now.

Also, should you ever see the Focus around, feel free to say hi! Just look for the 'orange' sedan with lots of decals on the rear window.

_____________________________

This past week I picked up a couple more FoMoCo items for the Focus, again since this car was bought off the lot, I have to add any little thing that I would've gotten had I ordered it from Ford directly.

Rear floor mats and rear mudflaps. More of the small items that the Focus was missing.




Some of you may have seen it, I decided to take some pictures along the way while installing the mudflaps and threw up a little post about it in the Third-Gen forum. (http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=271769)

Since this is kind of becoming my progress thread, I might as well put up a few pictures here.

On each side, a small section of clear vinyl was applied to protect the paint from being scratched by any dirt that may get between the mudflap and fender. The mudflap was then put in place. Out back more clear vinyl was put down before the mudflap went on.








As far as OEM options go I think I have all that I want now, save for maybe the homelink sunvisor. Now I really want the aftermarket to start hurrying up.

Some more tidbits for today, I picked up a Broadway mirror at last, and found a set of yellow bulbs for the fog lights at the same store so I grabbed them as well.

These are just a couple of things that the Grand Prix has, which I missed when in the Focus.



Obviously the 'installs' aren't very complex or interesting, so here are just a few pictures to show them in place.





A few more odds and ends and it'll be done as far as the initial touches are concerned.

Love the car and welcome to the Focus community.
I got to say that is the exact color and parts combo I would pick if I were to get a new Focus, built it many times on the Ford site and I always ended up with "Your" car.
Keep up the great work and have fun making it your own.

Thanks! No secret, I think it's the best combination...for obvious reasons.

Just today though, I saw another YB '12 sedan drive by, so apparently mine is no longer the only one around my area. I'll admit, I'm a little upset. I want to have the only one!

I think it's down to a shift knob, personalized plate, and a couple FoMoCo parts and then I can wait for the aftermarket to step up.

You didn't by any chance add black accents to the hood did you? I saw a YB in my rear view mirror with the sides of the hood blacked out.

Nope, my hood is still all-yellow.

To my knowledge there are two other YB sedans (One SE one Ti) and at least one hatch around town, so there aren't many of us.

Thanks! There's actually a few pictures from me in there, I even started the thread.

Below is the link to my 'official' project thread, which shows a few additional changes on top of what's here.
