Farwar's Tuxedo Black Mk3

I've been lurking these forums for a while and thought I would finally post.

I bought my 2013 Focus SE in April. I originally had a 2004 Ford Ranger that was my first car. Had fun modding that and airbrushing the graphics on the hood and tailgate.

Old Truck:






New Car! Pretty much how I bought it. The dealer tinted the windows for me.




Then the modding had to start of course. I haven't done too much. Plastidipped the stock wheel covers. Going to use the steelies for winter tires and get new wheels in the spring. Tinted the rear reflectors, third brake light and chrome whiskers. Added Fog lights. Orange mirrors(going to get changed up soon).

This is how it sits now.






















I have some more plans for it as time goes on. I will update them here!

That's a sweet car! I'll be interested to see what your plans are for it. Also, nice artwork on your old truck.

It's too hard not to modify things!

1. Installed K&N drop-in filter. I got the E-9289 with the plug on the end. I also have the snorkel removed. I've noticed that hesitation when accelerating is gone with the DCT. Also with the plug removed and giving it on an on ramp on the highway, it sounds great! It was louder than I thought it would be with the plug removed but I love it. And when I don't want the noise, put the plug back in!



2. Found some Blaze orange plasti-dip and wanted to do my mirrors. I like the look right now, stands out and gives it a nice touch. If I don't want it anymore, I'll just take it off.

The mirror covers were easy to take off. Just tilt the mirror down and there are clips you can just disengage and they pop off. I tried vinyl wrapping the mirrors first but its hard with the multiple curves.





3. Got some Rokblokz for the Canadian winters. I'm was impressed with product. Everything was there including candy. The install was easy. I managed to install the rears without taking the tires off. The rears had to be adjusted a bit to fit tight against the wheel well but nothing hard. I like them though. Will be great in the winter!







4. Also I'm getting my car all ready for winter driving. You can store a lot of stuff under the back trunk mat.



Now onto the recent pics. These dont have the mudflaps installed.













Also I finally found a phone mount I like. Clips onto the vents and is low profile. Holds the phone great!

This is weird. I posted my last post with pictures 9 days ago and it only shows up now and gets pushed to the second page.

One other note: I installed some LED reverse lights and they make a huge difference. Makes backing up with tinted windows much easier. Easy install and well worth the money to anyone thinking of changing them

Very nice car so far, any other plans with adding more orange or keeping it subtle?

Looking great so far. I really dig that Ranger. I'm hard pressed to get a Ranger or a first gen Lightning to play with when it's time for another truck.

The phone mount is made by Kenu

http://store.apple.com/us/product/HC...unt-for-iphone

It works great. Hold the phone securely and pivots while mounted. I wanted something simple and small. This fit the bill
