  1. See my guide if your not factory wired or want to add an illuminated ignition ring and rear footwell lighting :
  2. LED Dimmable Downlights fitted today very happy with the 4000 kelvin results, I've not been able to fit the clipsal branded LED dimmer just yet as it's on special order from Schneider Electric in Germany the manufacturer of the Clipsal range of switch & sockets, so here are the downlights at full illumination; Very impressed with the results 👍 The hall needs painting and will be done soon, I would have preferred to remove the mains powerd smoke alarm and fit one of the downlights in its place as it seemed the ideal location to fit one, But the Electrician (my dad) says; The smoke alarm has to be located atleast 12" inches from each wall above the kitchen door in order to comply with building safety regulations, So it has to stay where it was and had it replaced as they expire every 10 years and this one was fitted since 2003 when the house was built. Replacement 5 year model only cost €19.50👌 10 year model is €74.95😦 Bit smaller than the previous one, also had a battery backup supply which previous model didn't 👍 The Phone socket has also been installed in the living room, The Internet Router and landline phone can now be removed from the hall space and Network cables to Television box's upstairs can become live without the use of NetGear adaptors👍 I plan to surface mount the socket plate inside the cabinet when fitted. ""Currently updating images of the radiator's install on a previous post☝ Going to fill ceiling in hall with some filler now, Was cut out to fit cable for downlights earlier today but ill have the images inserted before midnight""
  3. Received the downlights this morning and lucky I didn't purchase those ThermaHood's just yet because the LED downlights don't need them according to the box 👍 In other news; im on holidays this week from work; my dad's on a three hour drive down with tools to stay and help out for two days,🙌 so the radiators are going in today👌
  4. Fingers crossed for you mate,
  5. Fingers crossed it's the news your hoping for mate .
  6. Getting up in to the attic to route sattelite cable out through the fascia at rear of the house, Last time I went up inside the front of house and tried to reach out through the fascia vent; Lay on my chest on the rafters and stuck my arm down trying to reach; almost got my head stuck between the plasteboard and felt roof as they narrow down to a point 😂 as result getting stuck i then got nose full of dust and fibreglass from the insulation. 😧things we do to have a tidy sattelite installation. Later decided it's better to have it at the back of the house exiting fascia on to sattelite on the chimney. This time going to put wire through fascia from outside; Then tape attic cable on to it; and pull it back out thus taking the wire out with it instead of getting my head stuck in the roof 😁
  7. Welcome is it a 2008-2011 model ? I'm selling ST gauge pod to fit dash
  8. This company started to follow me on Pinterest tonight, So I looked to see what it is they do and found this 10" android dash panel thought id link you:
  9. Unfortunately I don't live in the UK I could do it much cheaper if I was, Shipping is the same on imports only advantage this way is parcelmotel which provides a UK shipping address to members of there service in Ireland saves a lot.
  10. I'd be asking 150gbp for the diffuser cost 275 in primer grey now colour coded and Peugeot graphite grey. shipping could be as much as 60GBP mate, DPD or GLS probably the only carriers willing to transport an item of such size from previous experience.
  11. Electronic sensors for gauges are simple enough to install, not sure about the other things you mentioned there mate 😅 don't know what they are. Only other item is the rear diffuser but the shipping cost for that would match the asking price and I don't like advertising local because always get some sort of story teller or someone who sees somthing that isint for sale and comes back for it, So I'm thinking of just leaving it on the car and that was all I was considering selling. The side skirts can't come off neither because the frame was drilled to mount them. The entertainment stuff inside; keeps the kids happy in the back so all that's staying.
  12. Family are great thanks mate, my back isint as bad now atall, does get stiff at times but walking for an hour helps keep the pain away, also helps the hip as I fractured left socket may last year, delighted to be back to normality after two years of pain killers and crutches can actually take kids to the zoo this summer without dampening any activities. Working on Improving the house together now; few members showed interest so I have a thread up about it here 😁but embarrassing but may be of interest I dunno finished with the focus project now and enjoying family life with our two girls and our own son is almost two now, I don't miss a day without some interaction with him makes everything awesome, does fist bumps and hi 5 😀 loves spiderman and batman goes through Argos catalogue pointing at them saying there name in a growling voice
  13. Congratulations to your son Yunii mate, Some nice pictures there, I think your focus stands out the best of the lot even next to the bmw my eyes are drawn to your focus 👍
  14. My reason for removal is because I won't have the 18" ST alloys fitted after this set of tyres need replacing I'm going back to 16" due to the change in tyre compounds the 18" are not as efficent as once were, since it won't have the alloys, stripes are coming off too, so the gauge pod will look a bit out of place on the dash when it's not as appealing on the outside. duplex exhaust is already gone off it too because while I'm in work on occasion the missus takes the car and parks literally anywhere when visiting some of her relatives whom rent cheap. where it was likely to be removed for me😁 so being the owner thought I should get there first so it's back to single elbow curled under bumper. Overall i reckon the ford racing gauges were the besy option because not many car manufacturers provide there own licenced line of aftermarket gauges, they weren't cheap but there's no better, even in a mustang or F150 if your fitting a boost gauge this it the one I'm also in favour of installing screens as you know too. Both options look excellent all depends on if your wanting to look hi tech modern or add the upgrade with some heritage to it.
  15. Finishing work tonight at 23:00 and not coming back until 02nd August on holidays 😀 haven't told colleges yet though😉
