Nice ride, looks good with the drop. Really clean lines. I like black but has to be a mug to keep clean though.

Nice car! I'd loose the Duratec sticker though. The rims look good! Did you paint them yourself? Looks like you did a good job on the headlights. I painted the headlights on the black 05 focus we have. They are a pain in the rear to do.

looks great! not really digging the duratec decal though, just looks like another sponsorship logo, maybe if you did something more stock looking and moved it to behind the front wheel? or possibly the quarter panel?

I agree with the rest, the duratec sticker doesn't really flow well. Other than that it looks great!

Car looks great, especially the job you did on the wheels. But I have to agree with others, lose the Duratec sticker. Maybe you could have your buddy do one smaller or more discreet like someone else mentioned and place it somewhere different.

duplicolor wheel paint forgive my spelling on that....got it at pepboys the only place i have found that sells it in black used four cans one per wheel.Painters tape i love painters tape pick where you want to mask (how much lip you want) tape it off now use small pieces don't try to use one long piece to tape the rim you will get a wrinkle and the paint will get under there then you will hate yourself...now this is your call you can sand them with 320 or 400 i used 400 you don't use primer with this paint so when you have em sand clean them up and look to make sure your tape is still good and not coming up if its good then paint away with the directions on the back of the can p.s. you need to tape the tire or get a piece of cardboard and cut a hole the size of your rim out then you use alot les tape and its easier to paint and remove also have fun at it and don't handle till its dry [thumb]

one other thing make sure you get the lug holes real got with the sand paper it hates to stick in there
