Knowing that these fit is dangerous for my wallet. My first car was an 850, so I have a bit of a soft spot for Volvos.

Do it, you know you want to.

When I came home this evening I found a small parcel waiting for me; my new hubcentric rings.




With the wheels needing to come off for these, I was able to wrap the remaining three center caps at the same time. Now they all match.




Yes, they still say Volvo.

New lens = more pictures

Yeah, I've been taking lots lately. With a new lens added to my kit today I took some more to try it out. Of course the Focus was the subject, what else would be?







I'll throw in one "update" though, I picked up my new plate frame this week to match the one on my Grand Prix. Carbon fiber with a teal decal (the GP has white).

I'm not one to normally say this, but I would really like to see the yellow spill into some more of the interior...

I know you are still feeling it out and don't want to go overboard, just throwing you my .02. I like how you've made it yours yet thrown in subtle but noticeable changes!

I give you this -

awesome

Twenty,
I am loving your approach to detailing your car. Subtle and tasteful. I've never been much of a car guy but reading this thread is inspiring me! Can't wait to get my own (new) car and do some easy mods like this. Keep it up!

Cheers! The yellow will become permanent either when I can track down some Yellow Blaze spray paint, or have more parts to send to the body shop. 'til then though, the vinyl stays. As always, I'm still looking for more to change too.

Thank you! Working on a new car is definitely more fun, with everything clean and in good nick.

It would, yes. Why stock height? Because warranty. I have another car which has long been without warranties, so I'm free to do what I want. The Focus, I still need to exercise restraint.



Looking ahead, there is a big show & shine in exactly two months. Last year I unfortunately had to miss it due to my being out of town at the time, but not this year! I plan for both vehicles to be there, so hopefully I can keep progress going between now and then.

Bad news:

Last week I curbed a wheel while picking up dinner. First time doing so, and it was after the R wheels had only been on for a month. Sigh. Today I dropped it off to be repaired and hopefully I can have it back this week. For the time being the Focus is sitting in the garage on three Rs and one stock wheel, and the Grand Prix is back to temporary DD duties.

Good news:

I have just ordered a couple of new parts for the Focus. One is a Steeda rear sway bar, and one is carbon fiber. I hate to be a tease, but I don't want to say what it is just yet.
