Anyone have a pic of a Carbon Fiber hood on a Twilight Blue Focus?

And/Or ST170 headlights on the same color car?

There are the next two mods I want to purcahse for my car, so I'd like to see how they look before I make the definite decision. Thanks!

Well here's what you asked for on an Atlantic Blue Focus:
It's alittle lighter in color but I guess you can get an idea.

I havent decided if im going with the Fiberglass FC ram air hood or the cf one. Ill prolly go fiberglass and paint it, sincei dont like carbon fiber.

well i guess i will definitly be getting those mods...lol.

i love the look of the carbon fiber hood although Im not a huge fan of that particular design...i'm deciding between OEM or invader style...

as far as the headlights...I think i'm gonna go with the ST170's on my twilight blue focus, I think they will be a clean sleek look thats not begging for attention like the other headlights do..." Look! I've got projectors" or "Look ! I've got funny halo rings!" But I'm still not 100% lol.

my general plan for the car is to get everything for the appearance that I can afford to get over the winter, and then throw it all on when spring gets here...then continue the appearance until summer ends. I'm hoping to almost finish my car appearance mods by the end of summer of 2004...
that includes (in about this order...) tints, smoked bumpers lenses, headlights (ST170's, prolly), grilles(euro), carbon fiber hood (VIS invader or OEM), suspension (eibach pro system plus), 3 piece wrap around wing (Wings West), rims (gun-metal, not sure of brand or style yet, I just know I want gun metal), taillights (i have APC carbon fibers for now, I'm not sure what I want instead...), mirrors, fenders, and kaminari lip kit. i also want my door handles and side molding painted to match the car, or i want to pull some off an SVT. i also want to get a euro or RS front bumper, but I'm not sure yet.

then once summer is over, I'm going to order the performance mods for the car and start working on the perforamnce over the winter.

all of this just requires that i pay my credit card bills off LOL...anyways, I'm crazy i know...i've got my car planned out for the next year lol. but whatever I love it and I can't wait to get all this stuff done. i'm still rambling, though, so It's prolly a good idea that I shut up...ugh...just gotta pay those freaking debts


hmm...i wonder if i'll ever have money, once i start hooking up the focus lol
.

on a sidenote, is anyone else having trouble posting? it takes me 20 or more tries to get a post to actually go through...

Im lucky, i am 23 and makey 65k. So i have bought my focus 2 months ago, and paid it off already.

Now im about to buy another car and the focus is going in the garage to be the toy and weekend warrior. So i dont have to worry about snowtires, and stuff like that.

Drew: Thanks for the comment.


ABiToFMiSeRy: If you clay bar your car, use Zymol cleaner wax, and then polish it w/ Zaino, you can have the same effect
BTW, go oem, much cleaner look

You're right, it is a LOT cleaner loooking...and thats the look I'm goin for.

What brand is that hood? Where'd you get it from, and how much of a dent did it put in your pocket, if you dont' mind me asking?

Also, what do you mean by "clay bar your car" lol

ill bet it took a while to get your car that shiny, huh?

It is a VIS oem hood, and it was $419.99 from Modern Performance. I don't know if they sell them anymore though. I only bought the hood for a week to go to that car show, and then sold it to someone.

You've never heard of someone clay baring their car? It's exactly like it sounds, it's a clay bar that you rub on the car and it picks up any foreign material on the paint. Try this, go to your car and rub the back of your hand over it, if it feels a little rough, then you need to clay bar. Go to an automotive store, and look in the cleaning section. I use the Mother's Clay bar kit.

How wsa the fitment/quality of the hood?
Also, does it use the stock hood latch thing, or no?
and lastly, did it have holes for the washer nozzles, or did you have the drill or relocate them?

Thanks a lot lol

How long does it take to clay bar your car?

Fitment was about 98%. The passenger side where the latch connects to was sunk down a bit. It uses the stock hood latch, and has pre-drilled holes where you just snap in the stock nozzles.

Clay bar of an entire car will take approx. 1.5-2 hours.

dj, always thought the svt front looked better in twilight than any other color!
