  1. Living Room Project

    looking good Lenny
  2. Living Room Project

    keep up the good work Lenny Question - what type of tv bracket are you going to be using? Only reason I ask is that I used a nice flat/slim one for my kids tv and when it came to changing/removing cables when their xbox packed up it had to take the tv off the wall just to remove the cables which was a pig of a job. I have a nice tilt bracket for the tv in my bedroom which allows you to pull the tv forward by nearly 1 foot so access to cables is easier. do not use on like this: use one like this
  3. Aftermarket mudflaps

    you can fit the aftermarket ones by simply cutting off the bit shown in the pic. place the mudflaps in place and mark where it overlaps the trim on your car. remove trim and cut off the trim. refit trim and fit mudflaps. i fitted some universal ones on my car similar to those i the link buy something similar and it will do the job. even these ones will work
  4. focus mk2 tdci cuts out

    check your earth leads are all nice and tight. any earthing issues can cause mayhem.
  5. Air Inlet Hose 1.8 Diesel, thoughts please

    when i replaced mine it cost about £20 but the front one was about £90 at the time and didnt have a leak so i left it. definately use good branded clips when replacing them. too many poorly made ones that snap if overtightened a little....
  6. Twin exhaust system

    as above, look at custom exhaust places like top gear exhausts, long life exhausts to make you one.
  7. Air Inlet Hose 1.8 Diesel, thoughts please

    its probably old and past its best. i replaced mine with a silicon hose from viper performance hoses
  8. Lowering MK2 focus

    it depends on how low you want to go... plus are your std shocks in good nick if you only want to lower it? eibach springs are probably your best bet if it is only springs you want to change
  9. Build thread and modifiactions and ideas?? :)

    surprised that the chrome lip wouldnt sand! did you use 240, 320, 400 then600 grit to get rid of it? If that didnt work for you then i'd suggest youwrap it. I've dont mine in a carbon wrap and its good. i was tempted to do it in a 6d (yes 6d!) wrap but i remember that mine is sikaflex bonded so have left it as it is.
  10. Living Room Project

    Loving the build Lenny. Keep up the good work. Always plan ahead what you want to do and list it. Last thing you want is to have to rip out stuff because you forgot to install something....I've been there myself!
  11. Wheels and springs

    i had 19's on mine without any rubbing issues but make sure the offset is right. for springs i would use eibach ones.
  12. Ford Focus 2008 80kW TDCI turbo issues

    wish i could help but i know nothing on turbo's. someone will come along and help soon
  13. Fitting ST front bumper

    front or rear? if its the rear then the brackets should stay attached to the bumper - King Lenny is your go to guyon this i think. as far as im aware the brackets are the same for all the focus models...
  14. Ford Easy Fuel Cap

    take it to the ford it still under warranty?
  15. Build thread and modifiactions and ideas?? :)

    looks like a scrappy might be your best bet! is there a small tear just where it folds in? my old mans corolla had this issue and you just couldnt get it back to how it was supposed to be without changing it.
