  1. Thanks man, and sorry to hear your focus has gone. What's your new project? Hey Lenny. Thanks. Funnily enough I bought some mudflaps today, I think they are the same ones as in your guide. I have a service due next week, so getting them fitted at the same time. Cheers man. I'll update once I get the rest of the bits fitted.
  2. And a few more bits I've already done or will be doing over the next couple of weeks: Fitting the correct USB demister switches Some new gloss black mist type washer jets A foam insert to go into the empty space where the spare wheel used to go (this was from an MK1 RS). Fits like a glove and stops the boot mat from caving in. Before And after. Some new pedal covers with MK3 logo
  3. After a little bit of faffing about trying to get the mass of cables in the dash, I finally got it fitted. I routed the GPS antenna up the passenger A pillar out of sight. It could have stayed in the dash tbh, as it picks up a strong signal but I preferred it there. The new mic is again routed up by the passenger A pillar, but is stuck on the outside fairly discreetly. Big improvement on the stock microphone when making/receiving calls. The two USB cables are currently routed down behind the glove box. I bought the wrong USB switches for the dash, which go next to the demister switches. Will re-route and fit into dash probably this weekend. As for the reversing camera, I just need to route the video cable from the dash, through the car to the boot, then wire the camera into the reverse feed already spliced for the parking sensors. Here it is fitted.
  4. Stock Radio, pretty bog standard and does the job, but lacks alot of modern features. Front panel removed. Almost out. This is when I noticed the aerial cable wasn't plugged in, which would explain my crappy signal. LOL Wires, wires, and more ***** wires. Finally out :) Side by side comparison. Out with the old and in with the new. Rear-view comparison. Rear-view of the new stereo.
  5. Howdy peeps. So it's been a good 8 months or so since doing anything with my car. Last weekend I picked up a few bits and finally got round to changing my stereo. Pic heavy posts incoming :) Firstly the stereo, its an Android Lollipop (insert joke here) based stereo from Amazon, oval shaped so straight swap, and enough bells and whistles to make put the reliable but basic stock CD6000 out to pasture. Few key features, 7" 1024*600 Touch Screen, built-in Sat Nav (google maps & Igo), gps atenna, free 8GB map card + reversing camera. Bluetooth, Canbus support, steering wheel controls, Wifi & 3g, radio/cd/usb/sd card support. First some stock pics below:
  6. Nice, have you had the focus lowered?
  7. Other than tidying up the odd scratches and dents, that's pretty much most of the exterior mods all done for me. So weird seeing the Focus back in 2013 looking like this as stock: And now 3 years later, a shocking amount of eBay expenditure, and smarter looking Focus But still a few more bits left to do.
  8. Some photos just as it started to rain 7
  9. Yeah finally got round to uploading them. Incoming picture-fest
  10. Nicely done, the rear diffuser. Coming along nicely.
  11. Alas yes, there is a dent on the drivers' side rear panel, ironically where the side skirt fits over. There is also a dent on the rear wheel arch on the passengers side. I'll probably have them repaired at the bodyshop later this year. Side Skirts really complete the look, very happy with how they have turned out. Nice strong bond having left it for two days now, and Tiger Seal black blends in nicely with the Sea Grey colour.
  12. I'll upload the pictures with the skirts fitted tomorrow.
  13. Finally got round to fitting the ST Side Skirts this weekend, to finish off the Zetec S look. The weather was playing chicken with me on Sat, rain for 10mins, stop for 30mins, rain again, rinse and repeat. I'll knock up a guide at some point for anyone interested in fitting the ST side skirts to an MK2.5. I removed the existing panels which are screwed into the body under the doors. There is alot of dirt and grim accumulated underneath these panels so be prepared. Gave the area a good clean and sized up the skirts against the Focus. I used black Tiger Seal on the side skirts before fitting them with some helping hands (thanks Kurt aka MixMasterLooney). They have been left to harden for 48 hours so no driving. Here's pictures without the skirts:
