TiStick has it right.

This morning the rear reflectors were re-tinted and put back in place, wrapping up the back end of the Focus (for now). I thought I'd grab a few quick shots to show the full exterior now that the updates are done for the new season.

Please ignore the winter wheels. The summer shoes are waiting to go back on.







New additions:
-ST side skirts
-Custom painted rear valance
-Euro tail lights

Thanks to:
-Stampede Collision
-Metro Ford
-Rebel Devil Customs

The body color ST side skirts and your rear valance color scheme should have been OEM on these cars.

You saw it cuz I tapped it

I was thinking about the ST side skirts myself. at first I thought you painted your stock skirts but was taken aback at how good they look! that's when I noticed it said "st skirts" haha. Anyways... I was thinking of this for my black sedan. You think it will look nice, Twenty? Also the painted rear valance looks like some aftermarket valance.. I love it! This is a much cheaper mod then buying another valance and painted that too, right? Might have to do this myself...

He did buy and have modified the rear valance to get the new one painted while still driving around with the car complete until he was ready to change it. However you could skip that part by letting the shop do it all at once to the stock pieces.

Or if you know a guy who will paint over the weekend. Just pull it on a Friday and snap it back on Saturday.

I'm going to guess Ford purposefully left these lower trim models fairly plain to give the ST a larger value... however, you'd think they'd at least over something in a package like the black pack.

I usually hate focus sedans... but this is seriously very well done.

I like the sedans. The stickers are, eh, excessive.

A little lowered and it'll be perfect.

Low will come. I may still try some 18s.

With a black car it'd be pretty subtle. Bodywork is relatively expensive for smoothing and painting a valance like this, but the final cost for the part and paint was less than the price of the 3D Carbon valance, which is the only other option for sedans currently.

I bought a second valance because it was inexpensive with my employee discount and would allow the car to be complete (as suss6052 mentioned) for the couple of weeks it took to get the paint and 3M done.

Thank you! The plastic trim was wonderful for maintenance. No paint to worry about, especially during winter when crud is kicked up by the wheels.

Gotta show support for those who have helped. The decals will be changed up soon though.

I'm still debating lowering options and planning for that a little later.
