End of season photoshoot (2012 SE)

Today marks just over one year with my Focus (53 weeks to be exact) and it won't be long now before it has to go into winter mode.

You inspired me to order red vinyl for my doors, thanks man! And you have my favorite sedan on the site. The Volvo wheels are pretty unique, why keep the Volvo cap, well because you can!

Fofo is looking good bro...those wheels remind me of the RS wheels from awhile back. I'm glad you're going into winter mode cause maybe it'll give me a chance to catch up to you in mods

Thank all! RE: The decals, my back window is my stickerbook. Each one has a reason for being there.

I'll be interested in seeing how red accents will look on your car, glad I could inspire you!

A black roof has been a constant back-and-forth debate with myself for a while. CF has the potential to look cool, especially now with the front lip. But, I don't know. A real CF wrap would definitely be awesome but I'm still on the fence about imitation vinyl.

Low, after university at least. I bought the Focus to have warranties for 'big' things while in school. Sadly, even at stock height I come close to scraping the lip on my driveway too.

Thanks! I'll still keep working but the difference will be not everything can go on right away.
