1. Remove that plasti-dip PLEASE!
2. return pink
3. If you have never done window tinting before. I don't recommend doing it. I tinted 3 things all flat pieces of glass for my entertainment center. Looks good but it was a PITA to finally get it right. went through a whole 20' roll just to do two 12"x12" squares and 18"x 40" and this is flat glass we're talking about not curved glass on a car. I was even able to just put it on the floor and do it made it easier but still difficult. Go get it professionally done. Especially since you say money is not an option

also you have zetec engine right? for performance fun either go turbo or what i'm doing SVT header swap!

I'm not a fan of the stuff, but it's your car so my opinion doesn't matter. enjoy it and welcome!

plus if you ever did take the plastidip off, with a little work, you can make the blue look good

like this


or this



and maybe even these





if you have the money, you can make the focus look great, in any color.

While I don't know much about plasti-dip, I have to disagree with these guys about the pink wheels. I have pink wheels and I absolutely love them! I wouldn't change them for the world! They started as a joke since I hate the color pink, but now I can't imagine having wheels that didn't stick out as much asmine do. I know of at least two other cars on here that have (or have had) pink wheels.

That being said, modify your car the way you want to and how you think it will look its best. Everyone has their own style and even if a bunch of people don't like it, they aren't the ones driving it... you are.

while i usually agree with you, and i like your pink wheels. i like odd color wheels. POWDERCOAT THEM. vinyl wrap or paint your car. do it properly or don't do it. you are just basically making the car look cheap and crappy!

seriously. take that shit off. learn to mod properly. there have been SO many amazing cars on this forum through the years, you can search threads and come up with some many great ideas.

Totally powder coat them!! I painted mine with Montana Spray Paint, and even though it is arguably one of, if not THE, best rattle cans out there... it took at least a can and a half on each wheel and they did not come out as best as they could've if they had been done the right way.
Doing things because they are inexpensive tend to wear over time and you will have to go back and correct more than if you just did it the proper way in the first place. I've learned that with both cars and the mopeds I work on.

Not even...

If you put plastidip on your car, it's cause you're broke. Nobody with money half-asses shit.

This is just ugly.
