It took me several hours to read this ENTIRE thread but is was worth it. I just recently bought a used 2012 Focus SE and am looking for mods. This thread gave me several great ideas.
Twenty, thanks for all of the detailed pics of what you did. Great car.

So that's how long it takes. It has become rather long.

I'm glad you liked it! I hope you're enjoying your Focus, I know I'd buy mine again in a heartbeat if I were to do it over.

The painted skirts and valance are definitely up there on the list of best visual changes for these cars.

So...OEM ST wheels are a possibility. Time to sell the Rs and step up to 18s?

18s will look beautiful, but personally I'm less than amazed by the ST wheels, they have too many details, but they look good in darker colors like the graphite/gunmetal ones I've seen come up.

that looks really sweet
paint them yellow? yellow snow! lol (I like to describe the ST wheels and the 17" se wheels as "snowflakes")
just kidding don't paint them yellow haha. I guess you could do plasti-dip just to see what it's like.

your car is so beautiful....

those would look nice. always thought the Volvo wheels were a bit underwhelming. darker wheels (graphite/gunmetal) would match well with the other darker bits like the lip, headlights, fog housings... then add tint and you're golden in my book! lol

A smoke finish on the ST wheels would look great, Bill.
