  1. The search button on my friend - theres nothing fully answering the question I actually asked. And thanks for the answers, the car I have is an ex driving instructors so theres many miles on the shock and with my luck I know I would be the exception if I just fitted the springs without new shocks. Thanks again guys, amazing advice as always :)
  2. I have been thinking on buying lowering springs for my fiesta mk6.5 tdci. I just got told today that I would be better getting the shocks as well as if i dont replace them it may cause handling problems when driving and cornering. Is this true and has anyone ever experienced any problems just fitting lowering springs with the original stock shocks. Any help would be apreciated =)
  3. I do have pics yeah - on my phone so I will post them if you like later on? I am also doing my calipes red. Having a bit of trouble with the paint taking so I have some primer that I will apply and then paint with the red spray (if the weather gets better lol)
  4. Nice input beegly <_<
  5. Just did the drums today - look fantastic juts hammerite sprayed on them. Really makes a difference to the look of the car
  6. Nice on Gaz, stick a picture up mybe?
  7. This has come in very handy for trolly jack possitions :)
  8. Aye, cheers for that <_< The only reason I was wanting to remove them is just incase I needs to replace the back brakes at any point then, A - I would know what im getting myself in for and B, wont it stick the drum and back panel together?
  9. So i should just remove the 4 bolts at the back, this way I wont have to actially replace the drum... Is that correct? Sorry if im not getting it
  10. I am at that stage again where I dont have a clue what Im doing... again. Im taking the back drums of my Mk6.5 to give them a lick of paint. I took the wheel off and had a look... Its not coming off without a fight and I dont know what to do. If theres anybody that can tell me how to get the drum off then please help or link me to a page that can show me what im doing. Heres some pics of what I came across. This is what I see when I popped the cap off the centre
  11. Thanks for the possitive feedback. Glad its appreciated. I bought the wrap from eBay, was only £14 and it was good stuff. I am going to go for the propper expensive 3M wrap next time though because I still go bubbles wrapping my console, which I managed to smooth out. And Lenny, Ive never wrapped anything in my puff so it was an experience - the pics you see of the finished article is my second attempt, first one was good but I knew I could do better :)
  12. I forgot to post a pic of what it looks like up... And I even did the grey circles that surround the air vents (these can be tricky to pop out so please be careful… I might have broke one =s ) Also just to tell you guys that this was quite a stressful experience for me cos I didnt know what I was really going into so I hope these words and pics will give you and idea of what to go for.
  13. I decided, in my infinite wisdom, to carbon fibre wrap the centre console that surrounds my CD on my Fiesta mk6.5. However, upon looking for pictures and guides or videos on how to do this I couldn’t really find much info to help me along – so I thought I would make one up for the people that were as clueless as me =3 So you get your standard grey/black front panel which you need to take out… Which first of all needs the CD player to be removed. I bought the CD key pin things from eBay for £3 and they come in a set of 4. ***Please note the direction of these pins*** When removing the CD player its attached with the radio aerial and the wires that show the text on your dashboard and it can be a bit stiff to remove (well, mines was). Next is to start getting the screws out… This is where the coin holder was And this is where the window heaters were (they just pop out and disconnect from the back. The other screws are here… Next thing is to remove the top part of the console. The top part is just squeezed into the foam around the dashboard so requires a little bit of force, but don’t overdo it. And slowly pull it out. You will still be attached at this point. This is down to your hazard light switch and there’s 2 screws holding this in place. The bottom part is next and there’s 2 screws holding that in place at the left and right side (no pics sorry) This should then just bounce out as there’s springs at the bottom. You will still be attached at the bottom with the air con selectors and such – 4 screws hold this in place. 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom (again sorry, no pics) Then start to wrap… When putting the lower part back in please take care while putting the cold to hot wire which may come loose when removing Make sure it goes back in and is on the shortest length of cable with the air temp at cold, otherwise this could make your car be very warm (I learned from experience) So there we go… Hope this is of some help to some people =oD Dorfer
  14. Mission done... so much hastle to be honest. So many screws to be looking for, far too many tight spots and 2 people are generally needed. Was it worth it though? Yeah :) Will post pics and mybe a guide when Ive got it all fitted back in.
  15. Can anyone tell me what part of the bumper this is called and if anyone can tell me where to get one. This is from my Mk6.5 facelift (i think thats the model) The one from my car is cracked and I was wondering if the lower part circled can be removed without buying a brand new bumper? As always, many thanks in advance from a compleet n00b
