My 2012 SE Hatch

Here's some pictures of my Focus SE 5DR. I've done a lot of small, (cheap) stuff visually. I've also had the exhaust done. I'll figure out how to post a video of the sound I'm getting out of it soon.

Here it is after I did the pin striping.


Here's some pictures of the wheel-painting process.


Here's the car with the rims finished



This is the car now

I'd love to do more stuff to it, so please give me some ideas. The cheaper the better! I'll continue to post pictures as I go.

Pin strip looks pretty good. Did you do that yourself?

Not a huge fan of pinstriping but what you did especially across the back is pretty impressive and works with the color. Now onto a few negatives;remove the dealer sticker and clean your tires if you're going to show off your rims but that's about it. Good job.

Sure did. It was way more simple than I thought it'd be. It cost about $4 and took less than two hours.


Its not just the tires that need to be cleaned. The whole car need to be detailed. And I plan on completely debadging it soon. And I'll get the dealer sticker when I do that. I also have the fairing for the roof rack, I'm just waiting on the replacement hardware to come in.
