Exterior
how to remove side molding to paint white? - the side moldings are cliped on and come off easily aparently.
paint or powder coat rims black. - this is also easy to do and looks very nice
tinted windows all the way around.
where to find a black exhaust tip o do i just paint the one i have on there. - black tip id check ebay first if nothing then i would buy a regular one sand it and use high heat paint to paint it.
tinted tail lights and head lights - also very easy to do ive done some lights while they were still on the car. tail lights come off easy so its better to do them off the car. just use alot of masking to protect everything, use 800 grit or higher wet/dry sand paper and give it a light wet sand then apply very thin coats of spray tint until desired darkness is achieved.
painted gas cap? maybe?

HOW TO SOP THE RATTLING IN MY DOORS and what not. - Rattling in your doors can be fixed easily using sound deadening material. the door skins come off very easily and you can get sound deadening from any audio shop or ebay.

Not dead, just don't want to rain on your parade.

I'm not a fan of monochrome. It's been done too many times before. But if you or anyone else like your wheel (s) to be that way, go for it! Lot's of Escapes out there that are worked on and modded show up here. Show us what you do. :calvin:
