    BensBlackST Build

    My wife found my ST1 while she was buying her new Escape. The dealer had a black base ST on the lot.
    Since I had just gotten out of the hospital and was still recovering I took it for a half mile test drive and then sat through the paperwork. After buying the car I didn't drive it for the next week because I needed more recovery time.

    These are the pics after I had the windows tinted:

    The first thing I installed was the homelink mirror:

    After that I painted the calipers:

    The next thing I did was carbon fiber the dash and other parts:

    One more carbon fibered part:

    I took the pinstripe off after that but didn't take any pictures. I was thinking about doing a red pinstripe instead of white.

    Two days ago I installed most of my Christmas presents: JBR's solid shifter bushings and the hard wire kit for my new Passport 8500 x50.
    This finally gave me a use for the "change cup":

    The next thing I have coming up is a Blendmount for the Passport 8500 to mount it to the mirror and I have just ordered a Sharkfin antenna.

    More to come.........

    Today I installed the eFocus RMM but it is very wet out now so I cannot properly test it.

    Looks like Carbon Fiber vinyl wrapped over the stock trim pieces.

    I bought it from Metro Restyling on Amazon. Search for 3m Di Noc carbon fiber sheets. It's about $11 per foot. The hardest part is getting the pieces out of the car.
