  1. hey guys/girls... need advice/opinions... So I have my car booked in with a friend of a friend's garage who does wrapping for next saturday and doing it for a good price (£80 all in ;) ), I'm having the roof, wing mirrors and back diffuser wrapped black.... here's the predicament.... I don't know whether to go for gloss or matte? my friend said gloss would look a bit tacky, but I think matte is hard to maintain and personally I don't like the feel of it etc... what do you guys think??
  2. awwwh thanks guys, yeah I've been scouting about looking for other things to do now! hehe yeah the knobs light up as they have a transparent bit on them so when your lights are on they light up too which looks pretty cool :)
  3. So they came today, got home from work and just fitted these using lenny's guide :) look much better and I'm getting more confident in doing small mods to the car now .... hmmmm what next? any idea's guys/girls??
  4. hey, thank you :D yeah it was tricky, nearly gave up at one point but now it's done and looks good, clean finish etc I'm pleased with it, I won't be adding any more carbon to the car, like you said and I agree, it looks better with a mix :D
  5. yeah, preee said to heat the circles with my trusty hairdryer then i just used my fingers to press into the hole to dent it while it was cooling, after its stretched I just cut it out, don't get me wrong the back of the fascia looks TERRIBLE haha but you can't see it and I was actually admiring my handy work on the drive back from work a minute ago, it looks really decent and I'd recommend it to anyone :D
  6. well yeah... but I wanted to be helpful for once! hahaha yeah, you climb back into your boot and think about how we should "think before we speak" and "if you haven't got anything nice to say, then don't say it" ..... or you'll be sleeping with the fishes :P :o
  7. haha, was just about to run out and check it for you lenny but seeing as "Mr. critical" over there has informed you I'd go with what he just said.... loz has somehow managed to escape from his boot.... hmmmmm onto plan B it is then! :P
  8. hey guys, if you dont hear from loz for a while it is NOT because I have him locked in his own boot :D
  9. hey thanks alkyz yeah I want to run the cable through not 100% sure how to do it so might go check it out in a bit, I was debating the contrast but I think where the dash is black it kinda divides it nicely, but like i said to preee its all about what people prefer, to be honest its not that noticeable.
  10. HAHA Loz you got me! after your last "comment" I thought hmmmmm better not give him something else to pick me up on <_< well I can't do right for doing wrong! There's just no pleasing some people, hey lawrence you still not grown enough balls to take your VERY cool ecoboost badge off yet??? :P
  11. I'm probably gonna be wrong but sounded really similar to when I had my clio sport.... started to clunk every time I put breaks on soft or hard etc turned out to be an engine mount block...
  12. lol thank you lenny :) yeah that's just the aux cable, it's just temporary untill I take preee's advice to take it to ford and have the stereo upgraded to play my ipod through the bluetooth, I assumed if I could talk through it I could play music, this wasn't the case, generally the cable is kept in the glove box anyway but I had my younger brother wanting to "play DJ" earlier. <_<
  13. I did NOT find it easy haha I had a look at your pics with the vinyl wrapped around the start button and gear box, to be honest I wanna keep the chrome look as I'm getting some door sills etc and think it would "match" better, but again this is just personal preference, however you were completely right with only doing the front fascia and not carrying it on all the way down :D but yes I am very pleased with it, and thanks for all your help!!! hairdryer is going away for a while now lol gonna go bug lenny for advice with the cc knobs when they come haha :D
  14. so.... after talking to preee, I received the vinyl wrap on thursday and finally plucked up the courage to follow the guidance and managed to wrap the front fascia..... so, after many annoying moments and one headache later this is the end result :) also ordered ELM from preee so will be doing that when it arrives, just waiting on the climate control knobs now, anyway here's how it looks.
  15. There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms. Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 AM. The next day at 8:45 AM there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee, Lena. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule. The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up. At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's. She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles. The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs. The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches Lena. "I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday..." "Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles.
