  1. Your shifts sound worse than mine. LOL 3 x 12hr days followed by 3x 12hr nights then 3 days off, half of which are spent sleeping after the set of nights catching up on you .
  2. Hi Daniel Great looking car , Glad you found what you where looking for and look forward to seeing how this progress after all you did to your Fiesta.
  3. Hope this helps
  4. Check the " Scuttle " panel especially the passenger side , Water comes in through the pollen filter situated on that side , Had it in my Mk 1 focus
  5. Hi Daniel Yeah remember your name and also your Fiesta , loved what you did with it and Welcome back ,especially to the Focus side .
  6. Ben , Have you thought about maybe filling the area smooth and maybe carbon wrapping the area or another plastic wrapping, A lot of guys do their radio facia and other interior trim , Worth a go .
  7. Hi Ben , Not had it yet , but pretty sure it has been mentioned on here before about the Silver trim cracking and flaking off. Sure it was mentioned then that it wasn`t a part that you could replace.
  8. Had the rear one pulled of my dads fiesta a few yrs ago by the usual returning from the pub brigade and nothing better to do than pull everyones wipers up . Suspect you have someone playing silly buggers with you.
  9. Bitrex is a very bitter chemical they add to make things un drinkable .Else everyone would be drinking screenwash as some contain IPA ( iso propyl alcohol )
  10. MMMmmm Also know the post you guys are on about .
  11. Plant Pot
  12. You gets what you pay for . https://uk.screen.yahoo.com/epic-fails-not-fit-rear-190303868.html Have a laugh.
  13. Jammy B- hugger ,£40 Clive go and arrest him that's too good a deal.
  14. No offence taken . Not talking about rear fogs as with my ford the front and rears are on separate switches. Std front beams project in front of the car ,just that the fogs give a much wider spread closer to the ground / front of the car good for spotting those pot holes on unlite roads . It`s more to the point why do drivers get pulled over for using the fogs ( again I know should only be used in fog conditions ) yet lorries can apparently drive around with any number of lights on the front of there wagons and lights on inside above there bunks.
  15. I left her sat there looking bemused ,Well they should be on they`re automatic ? Yeah that maybe the case, but its dark and they are not on and your basically a dark shape on the road from behind . Automatic or not surely you have to move a switch ? What I was getting at is I turn my " Fog lights " on to increase my light at the front and to spot dangers on the road and such and I get pulled over .Yet a lorry can be lite up like a Christmas tree with added lights around the cab and lights on inside over there bunks and yet nothing is said. Just with a lot of councils now having switched streetlights of to save money and the risk of hidden potholes, surely more lights on is safer ?
