The bit that runs along the bottom of the doors and rest of car taht is kinda indeted (dunno what it is called) I would spay black, and maybe add some red some where into the car.
White with Black and Red accents is pure win.
Red for center of wheels or red bolts?
Could sticker bomb the interior or just doodle all over it with a sharpie or something. Interior is the difficlut thing as Im not a fan of relining everything with fur as it look way too ott imo.

Liking it so far especially now it lowered- proper job.

Baby blue steelies with a white rim. Make your number plate wonky!! This Focus looks good for steelies...I forgot about the arches on the Focus!! I'm in the process of making a homebrew wooden roof rack..do it!

I did a good deed today: I saved this lovely bonnet from the junkyard
it came of a focus wreck wich totally burned.
saved me a lot of sanding and grinding :)
