  1. Have you had the aircon re-gassed? I've had a couple of cars that have done that and was because there was no or little gas in the system. I would recommend getting a re-gas but be prepared that there might be a leak in the system. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Thanks for the reply. Got the tickets but the reg needed changing on one because of a change of car. I think I've managed to sort it with ford fair themselves now after a long week of emails lol Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  3. Hi, I need to get in contact with the admin that arranged the tickets for ford fair does anybody know how I can do this? I know his name but didn't no whether to put it on here yet. Thanks Ben Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Sooo not too much of an update on the car as anytime spent on it over the last month or so has just been general maintenance I've carried out. But I have started stock piling some parts ready for a good session on it next month hopefully. I've got: full set of 60mm lowering Springs and shockers (gmaxx) Catback miltek exhaust Puma gear knob Samco induction hose and cold air feed Complete set of front wishbones, drop links and track rod ends.

  5. It's not in too bad shape really, could do with a full buff that my mate will do once I've had the arches done. Can't wait to start doing some mods to it because at the moment all my time on it has been fixing the engine up and other maintenance stuff it's required. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Love the escort mate looks spot on. Can't wait to see what you've got planned with this and the focus. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Definitely Chris you don't see a lot of these nowadays. I've always fancied owning one and when this came up I couldn't say no lol. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. So after having the Mondeo for 5 years now I've decided I fancied a change on the car front. Great car as the Mondeo is I just fancied something that was a bit more fun something that can be thrown about a bit more so I picked this up last Friday. Had been sat on the drive for nearly 3 years but luckily only took a battery and some water to get it started. Needs a bit of TLC but for what i paid for it I don't mind putting some money into it. Needs some welding on the sills and underneath and the rear arches sorting out but most of that I'll do myself. On Saturday I did a full service on it, put a new Bosch battery on and I've got a timing belt kit, water pump, auxiliary belt and new rocker cover gasket that I will fit sometime this week or poss weekend.

  9. Pic of mine after a polish and wax a couple of weekends ago. Nice reflection of the roof in the bonnet lol Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  10. Try taking the fuse out for the radio and putting it back in. I think the same fuse controls the blowers too so they might come on full blast when you remove it. My gf had the same problem on her 2010 fiesta. I did this and it was fine after that. If that doesn't fix it it might require an update via an IDS. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  11. If that's what you want mate go for it. :-) I agree with Danny the fabricated exhaust would be a good choice as you can choose however you want it. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  12. Nice looking ST you've got there mate, shame your getting rid but onwards and upwards with the RS :-). How much for the induction hose, floor mats, boot mat and splitter? You can send me a pm if you like I would of sent you one but the app won't let me for some reason. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  13. Does it get louder when slowing down and also when going around roundabouts? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  14. Always enjoy reading you updates Mitch, like what your doing. Keep up the good work. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  15. I had the same problem on my mondeo last year and it was oil cooler thermostat, I went all the way to Nottingham from Manchester and it never went above 70 degrees. Think it was about £18 from main dealer. It's something you could change yourself. But like the others said its always worth changing the radiator thermostat too. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
