  4. Which pressure washer to buy?

    Had a Karcher for about 3 years cleans 3 cars most weeks stored in the garage never had a problem with it. Like everything everyone has their own favourite model and some will buy dodgy ones whatever the make. As said previously buy a good quality snow foam lance to attach to whichever you decide to get and you should be fine
  5. Always being on the look out for a different view point and stable place to mount the GoPro and thinking ahead to possible track days where cameras must be secure I've been looking at buying a mount to fit between the headrests but as they cost anything from £22 to £80 decided that I could make one myself for a fraction of the cost. First I bought a handlebar mount for the GoPro, not a genuine one but one off eBay for £3 delivered and I have to say it's very good quality. Here's a link if you want one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bike-Motorcycle-Handlebar-Seatpost-Pole-Mount-For-Camera-Gopro-HD-Hero-1-2-3-4-/131297419418?hash=item1e91efa09a:g:en0AAOSwfcVUF~9d also bought some U-bolts (I bought 4 as I'm making two of these) wing nuts and carbon style vinyl wrap First I measured the gap between the two inner headrest posts as this would be the point I would attach the mount. I cut a piece of spare 22mm copper pipe I had lying around to slightly longer than this, filed and smoothed the edges. Then placed it across the seats so I could mark the position to drill holes for the U-bolts to fit. I used a sharpie to mark where I needed to drill the holes. Using a suitable sized high speed metal drill drill 4 holes and smooth the cut edges so no sharps remain. The fit the 2 U-bolts and wing nuts. Wing nuts make it easier and quicker to fit than normal nuts which would require a spanner. Do a test fitting to make sure everything matches up correctly Make sure the nuts are to the rear as this not only looks better from the front of the car but is also safer for front seat passengers. Next measure and cover the pipe with the carbon wrap. Make sure there are no air bubbles if there are pierce them with a pin. Fold the ends into the pipe for a neat finish, I also fitted plastic bungs but this is not essential. Also clear the pre-drilled holes. Then refit the U-bolts fix GoPro stickers and the handlebar mount and you're all set to enjoy And finally as it looks in the car. This was a very easy mod no real skills required as long as you can handle a drill and saw you should be good to go. Any questions just ask.

  15. Make my fiesta girly!

    Think you've got a zetec there not an s as there are no side skirts and no s badge on the rear still a good looking car though. For gel badges I think there's a guy on Facebook called Ryan who does them in different colours Really depends how far you want to go and if girly means pink just please don't put eyelashes on it that is definitely forbidden on a ford leave them to mini and corsa drivers.
