  1. Another big update today! I had my roof wrapped in gloss black! They were also supposed to do the side mirrors, but apparently they forgot. When I picked up the car I was little bit bummed they made such a stupid mistake. Anyway, they gave me a discount and they also gave me free can of black gloss plastidip, that way I could do it myself if I wanted to, otherwise I had to come back one day. Here's the result of the roof: Then I started on the mirrors myself but it took me half an hour to get those damn caps off. It says in the manual that you have to press the inside to get the clip to lose it's grip and then you have to pull the cap off. But I think Ford never tried it themselves, it's just not possible! In the end I turned the mirror itself all the way back and I was able to push one of the clips out using a small screwdriver. Then I had to wait till it all dried up after a couple of layers and this is the result: I also used the opportunity to paint the indicator bulbs inside the mirrors with silver paint, looks a lot better :)
  2. I removed the tinting material from the tail lights and other parts, I drove around with it for a week but the last few days I was in doubt if it actually looked good or not. It looked a bit too cheap for my taste, so I decided to take it off again.
  3. Yeah I just sent a PM to a moderator :)
  4. Finally got my black and chrome gelbadges from the UK today :)
  5. An LED has an anode and a cathode, meaning a positive and negative side. So yes, since it's DC current you can only hook it up one way, the right way :P
  6. Yeah, I don't think you'll have to expect a new Fiesta until end 2016 or early 2017, an ST version of that will probably take 1 or 2 years more, so I'm guessing you'll see the next new ST around 2018 at the earliest. That's still four years from now, and I'm being optimistic ;) Just order it if you want one, I don't think you're going to want to wait four or five years ;)
  7. Yeah they're really good quality and the big plus is that when your driver side mat is worn out, you can just order 1 mat separately. That way you don't have to go out and buy a whole set every time ;) On another note, I just spent 2 hours cleaning the car. I started out with the foamgun, then I washed it by hand using the 2-bucket system. I also detailed the tyres, rims, windows and all the plastic trims. Quite pleased with the result :) (Click for bigger size)
  8. It's a dutch online store, you can choose your brand, model and then it'll give you the right mats for that type of car. You can then choose which material you want (felt, felt with lines in it, velours or super velours). The last choice is ofcourse more premium, it's very thick and soft. You can also choose the colour of the mats, the seam and you can put on some text or even a logo. www.matten-online.nl But since it's Dutch, I doubt you'll understand :P Better use Google Translate :D
  9. I did some small mods today, very pleased with the look! I replaced the indicator bulbs of the head and taillights with Philips Silver Vision bulbs, that way you don't have the orange tint in your lights when they're off :) Then I tinted the tail lights, third stoplight and the reflectors: I still had some tinting material left, so I did the logo on the steering wheel :D I've also ordered some black and chrome gel badges for the Ford logo's in the front and back, they should arrive next week. PS: Tomorrow is cleaning day! Stupid Sahara dust -_-
  10. Thanks! Yeah the Focus was my pride and joy, you can imagine how heartbroken I was to let her go -_- But I'm having fun with the Fiesta, small mods here and there make her a little more unique to me every day :)
  11. http://www.european-parts.net/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/160_162/products_id/963 Just four Torx screws, you screw them directely into the carpet.
  12. Some small updates I did in the last few days: New caps for my rims! And also the OEM footrest: The next update will be installing the flyeyeskit on my tail lights to make them a little darker :)
  13. Another small update, I replaced the stock third brake light with a smoke grey one, it looks nice I think :)
  14. Hehe, well the bodykit was on the Focus when I bought it new from the dealer. There were only three made like that, a yellow one, a silver one and a black one. They wanted to do something different than the normal bodykit you can buy as an extra, so they designed their own. All the other mods were done by me, but I'm a bit older now so I don't really feel like doing it all over again with my Fiesta. Other priorities I guess ;)
  15. Not much, maybe a remap and some lowering, not going as far as the Focus :p
