You ain't seen me.
I'd crack paint and curdle milk.
Thank god the reality cop shows stay away from me, I'd cause kids to have nightmares.
Actually I have been asked to do bits on tv as I'm the only dual purpose dog handler in my area but I prefer not to be shown on the box because I prefer to be anonymous.
Had to follow the Olympic torch through Plymouth yesterday and ducked every camera I saw.

@ all the Irish lads

I don't know if you know this but there is an Irish Ford Fair. Its held in Colraine and is known as The Causeway Coast Ford Fair. I was at it with another club last year and there was a good attendance but would be nothin like the scale of the one in silverstone.
Its taking place on Sunday 10th June

Just jumpin on the end of this thread re the Causeway Coast Ford Fair (sorry to OP for the massive tangent this has taken!) but just to echo John's comments above.

I was at it last year too, it's actually at the Dunluce Centre in Portrush, but Coleraine's just down the road so hope you don't think I'm bein a pedantic pat there. A quick Google and you'll find all you need to know about it. There was a squad of guys came up the country from rsownersclubireland.ie, probably met somewhere and came together...might be worth tagging along with them if anyone's interested.

Weather was bleak enough last year, started chucking it down as we were leaving at about 3ish, but the previous couple of years were scorchers. As said it def isn't on the scale of the one across the pond, but apparently the attendance two years ago when the sun was out was over 15000, and last year's had over 400 vehicles and official estimates of ~11000 despite the weather.

My boy loved it and it's a good family day out with plenty for them to do. It's also a really nice part of the country so if it was a long trek you def wouldn't regret stayin up a night or two.

PS I've just read over that and better state that I honestly don't work for FordFair, the tourist board or stand to gain from any sort of commission from it!

MK2 Focus 2.0 TDCI Saloon Build thread (BACK FROM GARAGE...)

Focus went into garage Monday as it wasn't running right, lacking performance and lumpy tickover and very 'jerky' to drive.
Focus is back :-) nothing serious thankfully! Started with cheapest option a new fuel filter filled with Forte fuel treatment and a run on diagnostics to show a fault on the temperature sender unit (one rear of engine) OH NO THERE £240!!!!! BUT turned out the wire wasn't plugged onto that for some strange reason.

Much much cheaper than I expected so might be another mod coming soon once spoiler fitted ;-)

look foward to the pictures mate,
ive painted the drums of the focus in the rain before,
my knees got wet but i got a large waste bin bag and cut it to a large sheet,
got some masking tape and tapped it to the wimng of the car so it creates a shelter for the area
so you can continue to paint inside without getting wet.
then when finished re fit the wheel and use the same plastic sheet to cover the wheel, to prevent the rain getting in.

:o Your car looks perfect! :D

Iv bought a set of them wheels last week and they should be delivered tomorow! I took a chance as I didnt know what they would look like on the focus, but now I know they look mint!

If i was you mate,
id put the engine flush in as early as possible before the service and filter change,
and you may also like to purchase a can of wynnes engine flush for use 15minutes before the oil change,
always read the label but fantastic stuff when used correctly. [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wynns-Engine-Flush-425ml-Cleans-Engines-Hydraulic-Systems-51265-/150864830130?pt=UK_Vehicle_Oils_Lubricants_Fluids&hash=item23203e9eb2"]http://www.ebay.co.u...=item23203e9eb2[/url]

sorry i assumed that was a fuel additive treatment lol

I really like the front bumper.
Different, but subtle.

I'm not a fan of in-yer-face mods (hey, everyone's taste is different), I prefer more discreet but higher quality upgrades - and you've certainly done that!

Very nice work.
