  1. well done fella. that is one nice mod that you made
  2. Lenny, I dont see how the downlight covers fit over the lights you have posted due to the horizontal shape of the green bit? Keep up the awesome work man
  3. Lenny what are you replacing them with?
  4. Hi James do not have the code for the loom but i know it is bloomin expensive. i think i saw one (one loom not both) on ebay for £50! you are in luck - a quick search on another website got me this - Finis 1520746
  5. @ Jammy - £200! looks like you have an apt username!!! Go onto the Ford ETIS website and type in your reg and this will tell you info about your car. Either way you can add front and rear ST bumpers to it to make it look better. Mods wise it is down to your budget and how far you want to go. With regards to the power issue - if you have a smart phone then download the Torque app and get yourself a bluetooth obd2 adapter off ebay (£5) and run the scan to tell you what fault codes are coming up.
  6. you doing the whole house up then? that floor came up good but it must have took some serious dedication and graft to get it that good so hats off to you Lenny is the living room finished off?
  7. looking good Lenny
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. check your earth leads are all nice and tight. any earthing issues can cause mayhem.
  11. 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....
  12. as above, look at custom exhaust places like top gear exhausts, long life exhausts to make you one.
  13. its probably old and past its best. i replaced mine with a silicon hose from viper performance hoses
  14. 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
  15. surprised that the chrome lip wouldnt sand! did you use 240, 320, 400 then 600 grit to get rid of it? If that didnt work for you then i'd suggest you wrap 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.
