What cell phone did you use that is great quality for a phone.

One of the cheapest smartphones... LG Optimus. It's decent in bright lighting but the "shutter" is ridiculously slow so you gotta hold it reeaaal steady to avoid blur.

The sun graced us with its presence today, so I decided to try and catch sterling grey in it's finest moment. I love the way it turns gunmetal in the direct sunlight!

Day I brought her home...
Debadged with some flair...
Second Bath...
Snow in April...

Current look...

She's got 20% Llumar all around. The whiskers have black vinyl coverings. And of course the stripe...

I would have gone black but once I found out it was a metallic it was off my list... My SVT was Sonic Blue and I almost went that route again, but they couldn't find one close with the same options.

But I'm more than happy with my Sterling, looks so good with the tint and stripes!

I'm not really a fan of any type of stripe on any car that isn't a pony car but I have to admit, at least from the pictures, your stripe looks really freakin good! That color on our sterling greys work well.

How much did it cost you to get it done? Also how much did the tints cost? Was thinking about doing all my windows but the front ones and windshield (Currently illegal to do any tint to the front ones in NJ :\)

Awesome ride bro!

I didn't pay for the stripe or tint. I had a few issues with my purchase after signing the purchase contract and that was the dealer's compensation. I can tell you two things: a similar offset stripe from fordcustomgraffics.com will run you about $300 installed. I was quoted $225 for full tint from a local shop.

Oh, and Bliky... Thanks for the positive comments. My stripes have already proved pretty polarizing even here on FF.

I picked up a Sterling Gray Focus but it turns a gold or brownish color in sunlight. Anyone else notice that? I've looked at other gray Focus and none of them are brown. I think mine is defective but I like the color so I'm not going to say anything.
