  1. Cheers mate, just off Ebay. Were £20 delivered. :-)
  2. Not very exciting, got some tailored mats as I was sick of the rubber ones sliding about. :) Rears Fronts
  3. Cheers mate, I liked the clears...just wanted it more standard looking. :-)
  4. Cheers mate, yeah I'm glad I found a Magnum Grey. Looks so good. :)
  5. Took the Escort for a good 40 mile drive this morning, idle is spot on now. So can stop and drive off properly now. Seems to be a bit quicker too. :D Definitely have no brake fluid leaks, but still had fluid on top of the gearbox. Looks like it was coming from the transmission to clutch housing bolt. Checked the bolts, and they didn't seem that tight. So torqued them up to the correct amount. Hopefully that's sorted it. :) Some better pic's with the ambers fitted. :D
  6. Bargain mate lol......your Focus looked mint. :)
  7. Exhaust clip from my MK4 with 1.6efi cvh with 2" bore down pipe back stainless steel exhaust. :D And the engine idling nicely after fitting the remote idle speed control valve. :)
  8. New reservoir cap fitted, and remote idle speed control valve fitted. :) Set idle speed at 850rpm, returns back 850rpm after revving the engine. No stalling when dipping the clutch and idles loads better, smoother too. So all good so far. Just need to take it for a test drive after I finish call. :)
  9. Remote idle speed control valve and new brake reservoir cap have arrived. Will get them fitted one night this week. The holes are already in the inner wing, so that makes it easier. Hopefully my idle problems will be resolved and my brake fluid leak. :)
  10. Thats the ambers in, master cylinder and servo painted. Cleaned the surface rust off the back of the headlights, treated and resprayed them. The paint reacted, so will have to do them again at some point. Just waiting for my remote idle speed control valve and new brake reservoir cap to arrive. :)
  11. Haha cheers mate, yeah it's had a battery tray in the past. And in very good shape, a very solid car. :)
  12. Checked for brake fluid leaks whilst under pressure, and nothing. Checked the cap and there is fluid on the threads, so think it's weeping out the cap whilst driving. I've ordered a new cap and keep a eye on it, it's only a very small leak. Just annoying having to wipe the gearbox off all the time. Think I best give the servo a lick of paint now lol
  13. Cheers, yeah I can't wait to get them on. :) I'm going fire up the engine to get a vacuum in the servo, then jam the brake pedal down solid. Switch off, so the vacuum stays. Hopefully then I'll see the leak. The reservoir is still full.
  14. Finally got a full set of Amber's, when I fit them I'm also going to repaint the backs of the headlights. :) Also got a brake fluid leak, around the master cylinder. Leaves a patch on top of gearbox. Main seal is dry, no fluid in the servo. Servo looks brand new inside. Think it may be the lid or reservoir seals. Started scraping the blistered paint off the servo.
