  1. They are relatively new yes. Been out around 6months or over but finally had chance to get mine on. The fiesta's have a spoiler extension too. At the time of writing I can't remember if it's mountune or Triple R that do them (or both?) Cheers for the compliment pal
  2. Ford Focus Mk2.5 Build

    Cheers Baz. The wheels are in anthracite but will a matte finish rather than gloss :) it's not that bad a colour to be fair but shows water stains up a lot.
  3. Managed to post them on my thread :)
  4. Ford Focus Mk2.5 Build

    Finally got the Triple R Composites fitted. Managed to give the car a coat of paint cleaner, polish and wax. Results weren't bad and it was beading nicely when I woke up this morning. Most people want pictures so here we go :) C&C welcome :)
  5. Managed to get my splitters on yesterday yeah :) I'll try post some pics up in a manage if the other half will let me have 5mins on the laptop lol. Bits like that are definately worth it. Can be expensive but not hard to get fitted and to change the look!
  6. Ahaha exactly right my man, they've been couriered back off today so should get them back ready and possibly fitted next week or so.. excited! Made a few purchases earlier to do some more modifications so look for those too! Good lad. I've got some bits in the garage I need to stick on. Might try and fit my triple r bits tomorrow :)
  7. You need to get your 'rare' bits on! That's what you need to do ;)
  8. Very nice motor and got an idea as to what your package is due to size and the 'rarity'.. Be nice to see them fitted
  9. I would of said exactly the same as the garage. Check all your belts. With the amount of Mileage it has, check the cam belt and all that stuff too!
  10. Hi Tom, I'm sure a few members will crease when they hear this but I ama big fan of bond and seal. If you want it on and I mean properly on this is the stuff! Its very similar to Tiger Seal but is much stronger.It hardens like a plastic so really good stuff but a pain to reverse if you wanna get rid. I've used it a few times on my car and will be again when I put my triple r rear spoiler splitter on. When sticking the eyelids on, I did it with the old man because you need two press down on both sides because you'll find as one side goes down, the other will rise ;) Bit annoying to put on but we got there in the end and looked good. Think mine have been on over a year now. Peace of advise I never got though was when applying make sure your bonnet clears them and doesn't catch :) James P.S Just found a picture on ebay of mine after I had done them! Seller asked for a snap ;) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/600177-ABS-Plastic-Ford-Focus-MK2-Facelift-Eyebrows-UK-Stock-/331508716206?hash=item4d2f7592ae:g:p2oAAOSwfcVUKO2G 5th pic in!
  11. Ford Focus Mk2.5 Build

    Unfortunately the cap isnt that interesting lol it's a smarter looking cap for the 12v plug. I am however in the market for a sub and amp. I have been looking at the JL W7 drivers and JL amps. So see what money permits. Today I ordered the front triple r splitter and rear roof spoiler splitter. Hopefully get them on in time for Fiesta in The Park (8th May). Whether I will be able to get my grubby mits on some recaros before Ford Fair is another thing. But still progress will be made somewhere.
  12. Glad they came off easily pal and you managed to sort it. In regards to the locking wheel nuts. Mine weren't that bad but I just sprayed them with some aluminium spray paint from Halfords and they came up like new. I have since got another set so I have two now. My only advise is that I would go over them with a bit of wire wool to try and get rid of any surface rust that would affect the paint sticking. You don't wanna go at it with a wire brush or anything harder as you may affect the locking pattern and then you really are in the brown.

    This isn't really much of an update but I thought I would put something down on paper. Managed to give the car a good going over a week or so again for a meet I had with another club. Had enough time to treat the car to the best hand job in town wahey :) two bucket method and grit guard wash, paint cleaner, polish and wax to make sure all of the winter rubbish was off the cars surface. The results weren't bad and I could start to feel the show season with each buff. I am currently humming and arring about having the front bumper, side skirts and doorsresprayed for show season but I see what funds permit me. Half of this due to wanting to finally get the Triple R Front Splitter on and Rear Roof Spoiler Splitter. So that is about it for now but I'll leave you with some piccies ;) Almost forgot to mention, finally fitted some CREE LEDs in the rear reverse lights, bagged myself an ELM327cable;) a 12v cap and a leather armrest. So the car has had a little treat :)
  14. Looking good Baz. Pretty sure this is the first time I have ever seen your car! Hope you are keeping well :)
  15. No worries buddy. I'm not usually on this forum much now-a-days but always have a lurk on the project builds :)
