      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Double Din Radios

    As we all know, ford have made a few 6000CD stereos. My question is can my focus (2005 plate, mk2) take a stereo from a mondeo with the same sort of design? Ford were kind enough to only give me a CDDJ stereo and i want an aux one. So basically will http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160748239144?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 fit in my car? Thank you :-)
  2. Haha thank you Catch & artscot. Nice comparison there ^^ I shall get the kurust and follow everything step by step. I want to save my wallet not watch money fly away. I was gutted when a bodyshop quoted me £1000 and I will do anything to get out of paying anything near that amount. I'll upload pictures later of both front arches and the slight bubbling on the rear, see what you think. On a (kind of) sidenot, the comments from your wife did make me chuckle!
  3. Guessing you was a little bit drunk there ^^ So. - Wet and dry - Hammerite Kurust - 2 coats of Hammerite Then fit mud guards?
  4. Is killing the rust as simple as getting some wet and dry and rust kill paint? The rear im going to get done by a body shop as i simply dont have the expertise to key in the paint, the wheel arches i will do myself if its as simple as this. I removed a load of wet dirt yesterday from the rear of the front wing. fun times! Thank you so much for the replies, this thread even though old it may be, was a fantastic help and glad (in some respects anyway) to find out im not alone with this.
  5. Hi just stumbled upon this searching for this issue and am horrified to find it such a common problem, yet when I went down the ford dealership and contronted them they said i was crazy! It this an easy fix? I need to do it myself. I also have a little rust on the rear wheel arch where the bumber meets the arch. Im disgusted with ford but love my focus. I hope I can get this done for a reasonable price, my cars also sea grey, seeing that I think ill be getting the flaps too. I just noticed this threads dead! Maybe if i bring it back to life?!
