  1. Not a great pic, and I can't wash it for a week, but...
  2. I've had my wheels done, will post a better full pic when I've got some space!
  3. You should check out my Fiesta, as I've made some changes that I think you'd like to do on yours
  4. Hi, thanks! I just did them both myself. To remove the orange filter from the indictors you firstly need to purchase some silver bulbs (like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131590518654) and you have to remove the headlights, push the orange filter through into the unit using a screwdriver then break it up using sharp pliers bit by bit...it takes a long time! For the fog light surrounds, you need to purchase the ST/Zetec S surrounds (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008FK1XUI/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item) and once you've got them you have to cut off the clips (there's no where for them to clip into) and just superglue them to the plastic.

  5. Thought I'd post a pic of the front of my Fiesta now I've done pretty much everything I want to there! Chrome grille, gloss black plastics (upper and lower grilles, fog light surrounds), flat wiper blades, Richbrook aerial, de-tangoed indicators, (and xenon headlight bulbs), and ST/ZS fog light surrounds. My plan is always to have an OEM-type modernised/updated look, so any other suggestions welcome! I shall be posting again next week once I've had my alloys powder-coated anthracite ;)
  6. Yesterday I sprayed the fog light surrounds/upper and lower grilles gloss black, and also 'de-tangoed' the indicators.
  7. Thank you very much!!
  8. I was wondering if anyone had been able to successfully fit LED map lights in a Fiesta? I have a Mk6.5, which takes 501 Bayonet T10 bulbs, and whilst I have been able to successfully replace the main interior light (265 Festoon) with an LED, I have struggled with the map lights. Both types I have purchased online haven't worked/fitted. It looks a bit odd at the moment with the bright white main light and yellow-y map reading lights! Cheers, Liam
  9. Someone I follow on Instagram has just purchased the chrome fog light bezels from a ZS/ST - cut off the clips that usually attach them to the plastic surrounds and glued straight them onto the surrounds, around the fog light apertures. Looks mint and seems like the perfect solution! Defo going to do the same, once I've got my plastics glossed.
  10. After deciding I would like to add rear parking sensors, I did some research and chose the Vodafone (previously Cobra) 'Park Master' R0394 system, as the reviews were really positive and I wanted a flush/colour-coded OEM-look. Now that they have arrived and I've looked over the instructions, erm...I think fitting them may be beyond me! Has anyone tried fitting similar themselves, or know of anywhere in the North East I could go and pay for them to be fitted?
  11. I've added wind deflectors
  12. Unfortunately not! I've been trying to think of an OEM-style mod, along the lines of the silver Zetec S/ST, or chrome Mk7 surrounds, but I'm yet to come up with anything. I suppose you could try silver paint with a tiny brush for a similar look, if you have the steadiness/patience! Or perhaps having them gloss black or something, to modernise?
  13. I've noticed an intermittent issue recently when starting (first winter with the car, so I don't know if the cold weather is causing the issue), but occasionally when starting the engine, it takes a second longer than usual to start; the central locking makes a noise (?), interior light and radio goes off and back on, and then afterwards the average speed/MPG resets on the computer!? Not sure if this is an ignition/alternator/battery issue, or? Anyone experienced anything similar?
  14. Thanks both! Not sure what colour I'd choose, as in my Zetec Blue there is no real light colour theme as all the lights on radio/climate etc are different! The footwell/door handle lights in my friend's MINI are nice; very dim so not distracting, but look very cool. Can't say I'd have the skills to make them colour changing mind you! Next job is flush Vodafone/Cobra rear parking sensors that I've just ordered anyway...wish me luck aha!
