2008 SES sedan upgrades

I just ordered the 17" euro style svt wheels to replace the stock 16's. I also ordered the black chrome headlights and the smoked tail lights. I was wondering if any of you have used Plastidip to give your emblems a new look? If so, how do you like the results?. I'm thinking of going with gunmetal for the focus and SES emblems. My car is silver in color.

Personally I think plastidipped emblems look cheap.

You could always lower it, Massive has a closeout sale on their springs for our cars, make sure you order the extra hardware, should be about 150$ total including shipping.

Instead of Plastidip, where could I find black or grey lettering to replace the emblems that I already have? Also, the chrome decorative air vents on the side. Any idea of what to do with those? Do they sell another replacement that could maybe have a body color and not chrome?

You would have to paint it to get it to match body color, the grill you can always do dark. They do make sticker overlays that look a little better, although I bleed Ford blue so I don't know where you would get them from.

In regards to the emblem overlays, you can get some from TFB Designs. That's where I got mine.

I don't need an overlay for the ford logo itself. I don't mind the ford logo. I wanted to have the Focus name on the truck and the ses logo a different color
