i love everything you did to you X.. Did you get that paint made up from the ford dealer or did you go to a store and buy it? I cant find that color anywere............Is that a stock color or aftermarket?
Thanks for the comments. I went to a paint shop and had the painting professionally done (removing badges is one thing, painting is another). I just told them to match the color. The exterior trim was actually the gray, textured, plastic trim and it had to be prepped carefully in order for the paint to hold.
i didnt have any trim work painted, but i bought new front and rear bumpers, and grille, primed, so that cut the cost down, and the painting of front and rear bumpers, grille shell, running boards, ee airdam, splashguards, plastic over rear bumper, lil trim above rear license plate cost 450 + 200 for minor prepwork for plastic and taking and putting everything on. the plastic didnt turn out that great, but i guess you get what you pay for. im getting my ee airdam repainted this winter because of chips from driving, and maybe even my mirrors.
