^^This.

Rust stands out enough on it's own without the addition of a pattern.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I might actually like a rusty hood on a Focus. Nice work

I liked it from the start. I think the Toreador Red is great color to pair the rust with. How is the roof turning out? It seems to be more consistent than the hood.

I'm sorry but that looks a bit ghetto and looks like a few Foci around here and I don't think they were trying. Leave that look for the Rat Rod crowd and paint your hood since it's a good looking car around the hood.

This looks awesome, but mostly because you left the hood edges painted and the rust is a great match to the paint. I can't see many cars pulling it off well, but yours does. How far do you plan on letting it go before clearing over?
