  1. Hyrule's Build Thread

    One side of the ST side skirt turned up today. Didn't realise how big the thing was. Here's the box: And unboxed: Just waiting on the other side, but bit of a steal at £60 on ebay and in very good condition.
  2. Spot The Poor Vauxhall!

    I know you guys will enjoy this one. So where I used to live was a hotbed for antisocial parking, but this lady takes the crown. I'm still a member of the resident's forum so love seeing the updates of all the things ppl !Removed! about, from interesting to trivial. So she parks her vauxhall in the emergency access area and basically harasses anyone who approaches her about it. As you can see she parks her car here and blocks this area, which is meant to be for emergency vehicles, disabled access only. But every now and then justice comes along. Not sure what happened but she has been clamped and apparently police are involved. Safe to say she is not going anywhere, anytime soon.

    Here's the finished product:
  4. Hyrule's Build Thread

    Cheers mate, sure. Cleaned the grille with warm water and soap, then lightly sanded it, to give the primer something to adhere to. 3 coats of plastic primer (20minute intervals between coats). Left it for 24hours to harden Another light sanding, then 3 coats of high gloss black paint (20minute intervals between coats). Left for 24hours to harden. (i left mine for prob 48hours as it was over the xmas period. Finally a very very light sanding to iron out any imperfections. You would worry this would remove the glossy finish from the paint but don't worry. 3 coats of lacquer (20min intervals between coats). Left to harden for 24hours. The lacquer gives it that lovely shiny gloss as well as protecting from the elements. The above is a rough guide of what I did, but should work for most car plastics.

    Ah cool, you planning on spraying yourself or getting a bodyshop to do it? I did the upper grille myself, the lower one I had done at a bodyshop.

    Thanks mate, nah I prefer the Zetec S Sports grille I fitted to the ST honeycomb one ;)
  8. Hyrule's Build Thread

    Hope everyone had a good christmas and new year's. Haven't done anything to my Focus since spring last year, been ridiculously busy, but finally got round to fitting my ST upper grille, painted gloss black. I had a panic moment where the bonnet locked and wouldn't open, but thankfully looking through the guides, sorted it . Some pics below, i'll upload some others later of it fitted in the daylight.
  9. Another Hyrule Dashcam Vid.

    Yup 30mph road and the camera catches speed as well as ppl driving through the red lights. Tbh with police budget cuts and that evil home secretary I don't think police have the time or manpower, however there is the MET roadsafe initiative which aims to raise awareness for bad drivers. I reported it using the online form and linked my youtube video. They normally send the registered owner a letter warning them about their driving and refer them to any youtube vids etc http://content.met.police.uk/Site/roadsafelondon
  10. Another Hyrule Dashcam Vid.

    Yeah I did report him. I'll post the rear cam bit later, forgot about that. ;)
  11. Been awhile but I always like to share some special vids with the club. Had this special BMW driver on my case this evening. Cold and wet, you think would promote a sensible level of driving, but no. So he tailgates me to the traffic light. As we pull off he is again right up my rear bumper. Gets angry and overtakes almost hitting oncoming traffic. Also the car to my left was thinking of cutting infront but thankfully sped up, indicated and moved across, but could have been much much worse:
  12. Howdy peeps. Saw a lovely sea grey focus this morning while walking to the station. Dual rear exhausts and FOC member stick in the rear passenger window. Was heading down past waddon station. Just wondering who it was :) :D
  13. Would I Or They Be Done For Road Rage?

    Couldn't resist ;) Let it go
  14. Where Do You Work? To Afford This :p

    Infrastructure Consultant for Cloud hosting company (sounds posh), but basically look after virtual and physical IT infrastructure for our clients as well as in-house stuff for staff. Nice views of the river thames and london skyline from my office :) (near the Shard) Spent a lot in my first year on mods, but now slowed right down.
  15. Parking In Disabled Bay

    Takes public shaming to a whole new level. Basically covered his entire car in blue paper, and used white paper to make the disabled sign.lolol. Even the wheels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=19&v=HmpsJej64f8
