Splitters and headlight mods,,,

Just finished installing side splitters on my Focus and did some mods to a set of Ti headlights I got off egay.
The splitters are originally for a 2011 Roush Mustang. Took some measurements and a chance on them being the correct lenght or at least too long and it worked out just the right lenght. Had to modify how it went on, but so far it's holding on.
The headlights I took apart and night shaded the turnsignals and reflectors and painted the light flector edges to make it darker.

Your car looks great. I would like to know the brand / model of wheels that you have. I like those as well.

That looks really good. Is there a little gap at the back of the splitters between the splitter and rocker panel? How do you have them attached?

The wheels are Helos 845's from Tirerack. Got Kuhmos on them and it rides well. Wish I had gotten 19's instead of 18's. I got some more photos of the splitter and install I'll post later when I get home.
I baked the headlights at 280 for 13 minutes and they came apart pretty easy. believe it was pretty close to being too hot though. It was getting soft around the edges. Cleaning the old glue out was a pain, used a heat gun and screwdriver. Used 3M windshield glue to put it back together with.
