  1. Foam Lance

    Do you know if his are bulk direct hoses?
  2. Foam Lance

    Okay I'll grab one.
  3. Foam Lance

    Thanks I'll take a look, you reckon the direct hoses are better than these ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lavor-Fitting-Snow-Foam-Lance-Pressure-Washer-Jet-Wash-Compatible-/171858420472?hash=item28038f62f8
  4. Foam Lance

    How much do you provide the lance and foam for? is it the same/good as direct hoses?
  5. My last car was written off because someone rear ended me, they weren't looking out their windscreen. This guy rear ended me recently and he said he was using his GPS. WHY CANT PEOPLE LOOK WHERE THEY DRIVE. After the first write off I got a dual mobius dashcam setup hardwired and wouldn't drive without it. Got two non fault accidents against my name and I'm 19 with about 1.5 years driving. I haven't mentioned this one yet and I'm not sure if I should cause the rise will be unreal. Car doesn't look like its damaged, no visual on bumper, boot lid is fine, no crumpling in boot well. Not sure what else to check really. Only just sorted out the claims and crap for the last car which was written off :( Any advice on the situation.
  6. Mobius Dashcam (on 24/7)

    HAve you considered loop recording?
  7. Mobius Dashcam (on 24/7)

    http://www.banggood.com/Super-Capacitor-For-The-Mobius-Action-Sport-Camera-p-918122.html I got this one.
  8. Mobius Dashcam (on 24/7)

    The capacitor can only hold power for about 10 seconds I think
  9. Mobius Dashcam (on 24/7)

    I've got mine hard wired now piggybacking off a fuse with a 12 to 5v converter and the super capacitor. Its great. when i turn the keys the camera receives power and starts recording straight away, the super capacitor then shuts down the camera when it loses power.
  10. Mobius Dashcam (on 24/7)

    For car security using a dashcam is not viable at all really. By the time damage is done the dashcam probably hasn't detected it and their gone by the time it starts capturing. Also the field of few is minimal and i guess it would only be pointing at the front of the car?. Your best bet is to use a cctv camera that watches your vehicle. If you want to have your mobius in the car all the time I suggest you get a "super capacitor" for the mobius, it's an easy 1 minute switch and it replaces the battery. The lithium battery will get hot sitting in the car especially on a hot day and could expand/explode/stopworking. The capacitor will give the mobius enough power to shutdown safely without losing any footage. Capacitor: http://www.banggood.com/Super-Capacitor-For-The-Mobius-Action-Sport-Camera-p-918122.html
  11. New Fiesta Pictures

    There's a few chips that haven't been touched up very well but I guess the chips expected with a car this age. At leasts there's no scrapes/scuffs.
  12. My New Car

    The fiesta I just bought. the boot didn't open via button or remote but did with the key. The dealer just replaced the boot solenoid if that's how you spell it. The seat handles breaking are extremely common, you can grab genuine ones on ebay/amazon from around 22-25£. Apparently they are quick to change if you know how. Not sure how much the solenoid is but it shouldn't be too much if it is that.
  13. Got my new fiesta now after my 55 plate was written off. Got a few ideas of what I want to do although it probably wont be anything major like some build threads. Any Ideas appreciated! :) Things I've done since I got it: Transfer stereo with new fascia.Transfer wind deflectors What I'm thinking about next: Colour coding trim along doors, boot, door handles and wing mirrors. Spraying front grills satin black as they are a faded grey in person(look way more dark on camera)Install hands free.Dual Mobius dashcams hardwired.Rear Parking sensors.Possibly double din touch screen stereo. Either android tablet, china double din, anything really.
  14. New Fiesta Pictures

    Finally uploaded pictures of new car, I want to start a build thread but not sure as I probably wont be doing anything too major unless I get ideas. Didn't realise at first but the tint on this car is the actual glass and must have been a factory upgrade? (seems quite dark to be factory from what i've seen). Not too keen on silver because it doesn't really "pop" but I'm going to clean it and give it a machine polish to see what I can do.
  15. Custom Alarm

    Does anyone know of any good aftermarket alarms?
