Got the door moldings, hatchstrip, and the stock side skirts paint matched to my car...just got it all reinstalled last night...

And I know about my huge wheel gaps...im thinking about the SVT suspension since I live in Wisconsin and need my car for winters as a daily driver

awesome!

I painted mine, But they are In need of repainting.
1) because I ran out of DuPont vinyl paint (expensive stuff)
2) someone egged my car, spiderweb crack on my painted hatch strip.

It looks like you've done a good job. Can we get pics of the hatch strip?
It looks like the paint has matched well.

hmm...can you guys wait till its light out tomorrow? cause its too dark to get a good pic of it. but the paint matches exactly. ill even let the camera flash right into the hatchstrip and it will match. my buddy works at the body shop that did it. all they did was take the paint code off the car and it matched right up no problems, but it was WELL worth it to take it to a body shop. when it comes to painting my car, thats not something im gonna do in my garage or myself, too much at risk.

i wanna get this done as well, but have the door handles and mirrors painted as well. Mine look stupid now b/c they got wax on them, so they fade. Reason why ford left them like that is b/c its something they can save money on and its not really needed for drivability, the focus was a cheap economy car remeber.

looks great, job well done [thumb]
ford did that to save cost on painting them. easy to make 1 million of the same color then a 1/10th that of each individual colors.
ever see the cavis with the plastic bumpers and side moldings... all the same color black plastic no matter what color teh car was lol
