  1. Removing wax from black trim

    Pencil eraser or magic eraser (gently) & time & patience. Solution Finish is awesome stuff too & gets things nice & black
  2. Best cleaning/detailing products

    I'd happily say there is TOO much choice out there!! I do so far like Meguiars Endurance for tyres & also fully recommend Solution Finish for reviving faded black plastics!! Car Pro PERL is also a good product & for polishes & waxes I think it's a case of personal preference really.
  3. Guide: Fitting Bonnet Strut kit mk2 and Mk2.5 Focus

    I don't suppose this guide is about in PDF is it with visible photos please???
  4. Modifications

    I knew roughly what I wanted from this before I bought it. Nothing over the top. Something smooth & subtle looking. Lowered 50mm, Mondeo 18's, removed rear badges & wiper, non-marked pressed number plates :) I might fit mud flaps [for function] ZetecS front lip [bumper is scratched right at the very bottom on the O/S], bonnet lifters..... But aside from that I'm more than happy to drive it & keep it looking nice & clean :)
  5. Old or New...?

    Hi All I've been a Ford owner all my driving career since '93 with my first car being an 1100 base Mk1 Escort in blue. That followed in '96 with a 1971 1300L which I still own today even though it's been through various guises, styles & engine swaps over the years...... I also had brief spells with a Mk1 Orion Ghia & a Mk4 XR3i in the early 2000's. When the Mk1 Escort was off the road for restoration work a SEAT Toledo Mk1 fell into my hands & has served as my daily since 2009. This is being replaced this week after faultless & loyal service with a 2010 Focus Zetec which is obviously my reason for joining up on here with me being a little out of touch with more modern Fords & part compatibility & modifications etc etc I mean, it's not going to stay completely standard is it...... *it doesn't appear I have any XR3i photos scanned in!!
