  1. I work for a composites company so I made some carbon fibre ford badges. The one I'm showing here was a prototype and not of good quality because tooling carbon material was used which is not for final parts. I was sanding it before polishing but I went through the weave, oops :/ . It has also not been lacquered either. Gained at least 10 k/w with these mad weight savings.
  2. Interior Car Wrapping

    I have currently been looking for a place where I can get my interior wrapped in carbon fibre but as I am new to this I am not too sure on any companies , does anybody know of any good , reliable places i can get this done in the Norwich / Norfolk area?
  3. Got my roll of Vinyl wrap today (4d carbon fibre),First attempt on the spoiler was terrible,second attempt was better but not perfect,Is it actually possible to do the spoiler in 1 piece?Ive never seen one done for a mk2 focus before,What sort of technique do you apply as everytime i got to doing the bottom it seemed to fold into itself and there was no way of stretching any creases out as it had already been stretched on the top side to get around the stupid curve. I then done the trim around the gear leaver which was easy. I couldnt manage to unclip the frame around the radio,i could get the bottom 2 clips undone,but it felt as though if i applied any more pressure at the sides it would just snap the plastic (6000cd),do i have to remove the radio to get the trim off?
  4. Carbon Fibre Interior

    Hey there guys, looking for a bit of help to find some interior surround/fascia pieces for the interior of my 2008 Focus Zetec. This is essentially what I'm looking for : I'm looking to replace the entire centre console in the same style. However, I can't seem to find anywhere that does a fascia for the gear lever surround and the only ones I've found for the other parts (radio surround, ashtray, switch surround) seem ridiculously expensive. For example this would cost me upwards of £450 :o from the website above. I was just wondering if anyone has done something similar or knows of somewhere I can find the parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D
  5. Hi Everyone, This is the first time ive ever particiated in any kind of Forums however i really want to make my Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec Auto 57 plate look as cool as possible without breaking the bank to do it. i have been so inspired by some of the topics ive read and as a kid have asked for advise. So i ask for as many advise and information on turning a standard interior, looking classy. So far i have managed to chnage the trims of the sterring wheel only because the standard silver was worn out and for £9.99 these are perfect. This post in particular was so inspiring thanks to Stoney and thanks Mike for the reply. Now i want to change the following from the below standards (inspired by the above) Now for the above i need info on parts, Stoney has provided a guide to install a Factory Sony 2008 (i think) system into the car. however i need to find out where i can get the tools from or the carbon effect or unless i wrap it how do i do it? like shown in Mike's Pic finally the below pic, am little confused as my Cigg lighter doesnt have a flap as shown in Mike's pic Is this something i can add/install? and can you tell me what they are called plz so guys, you know what the plan is now i need you all to help with guidance and ref to make it possible. O yes before i forget, my rear speakers have busted and i dont have a clue what to replace them with... Ive read many articles however it doesnt say what size are the correct ones and or if any other sizes can be installed without any hassle. So guys your help on the above will be much appreciated and i wait in exitment on your response. As you may have gathered ive never done anything like this before, always a first hey :) :D
  6. Hi There!

    Hi all, I am currently driving in a 1.3 Fiesta Finesse which I have had for just over a year and I'm just looking for some advice on things to do to my fiesta to make look a bit cooler and general up keeping of my wee ford. Thanks for reading!
  7. After researching the project and posting a guide on how to do this job- I seemed to talk myself into doing the job myself as proof of concept and having finally got the pieces together and the free time to do the job myself, here are the results. Got this radio- And this carbon fascia (wasn't interested in the standard silver one as I'm a carbon type of Guy so hung on for ages waiting for one to come available)- These brackets from Ford so as to correctly fit the radio- And some 6x25 dome head posidrive self tapping screws from B&Q- How the radio looked before the project- First, removing the old radio and unplug the quadlock and aerial- Don't forget to remove any CD's first, you'll never get them out after if you don't do it now- Then out with the old- Remove the old rectangular fascia- And the screw lugs as they'll get in the way of the new brackets- Now to mount the adaptor brackets, they fit either side so you can't get them muddled up- There is a "duck bill" clip on the back of the brackets that pushes into a hole, they can be a bit tight but will go in if pushed firmly. Next re-connect the aerial and quadlock connectors and offer up the radio to the brackets- Fasten the four screws loosely at first to ensure that the radio sits straight and then tighten them all up- Clip the new fascia in place and check that everything sits flush- Enter your new radio's code, test buttons and steering controls, retune your radio, set audio to your taste and sit back to admire the job. If you look at the times on the radios you can see that the job took 15 minutes to swap one radio for the other and 9 minutes checking settings and testing the radio and CD sound so technically 25 minutes in total which also includes taking photos and faffing about.
  8. Had some spare time today so vinyl wrapped my centre console.
  9. Carbon Fibre Wrap! Diy

    Hi all,I invested in some carbon fibre wrap of ebay! for anyone who is thinking of doing this you will need a lot a time (a hole day) and patients it drove me crazy! and this is defiantly a 2 man job i tried it by my self and absolutely failed that extra person holding the heat gun whilst you wrap really makes the difference. The wrap i brought i found on another feed on here and the quality was really good for the price of it. so if you are thinking of taking you car to a company to get it professionally wrapped then spend a tenner on ebay first and have a go your self might save your self hundreds! i also brought some carbon fibre steering wheel trim had a break for a week and carried on and now its all finished carbon fibre steering wheel trim
  10. Air Vent Trims!

    Hi all, does anyone know how to remove the little plastic silver surrounds from the air vents? There are 4 in total and I need to remove them as I'm looking to wrap them in black. The car is an 08 reg focus Zetec (facelift) Thanks in advance! If left to my own devices i'd end up snapping them :/
  11. Just wanted to post a couple of small mods off my list of bits and pieces. I decided to get around to changing my side indicators for smoked LED ones, a bit of a tight fit but i think they look cracking. Also i went for Carbon Fibre effect steering wheel inserts- (the silver S is my little touch as after all my car is the Sport version) Comments and critique welcome.
  12. Hi i am new to this site and would like to show what you can do with a couple of pounds, i bought a carbon vinyls sheet the cheapest you can get at £8 but only used a small piece of it, i am really made up with the outcome as i have never done it before, if you are thinking of having a go make sure you watch a few videos on youtube first i can let you know the good ones i watched if you want, they have turned out perfectly with no bubbles. can also let you know the tools you need also very cheap, carbon has got 12 year lifespan indoors 5 years then for the wing mirrors. As i am new to this i would also like some tips from the pros.
