Im sure you will agree it no looks alot better, the 'Ford' logo makes a nice added touch also.



I also gave my friend a hand with moving his quad bike so we can do some work on it. En-route to his we took this little video to show how well just one layer of hastily applied AB repel works at motorway cruising speeds in pretty nasty rain.




And said quad:

Hopefully the weather gets the memo about it being summer soon!!!

Weather not really permitting me to do the exterior badges but the steering wheel was a must!

Let me know what you think of the carbon/chrome take on the Ford oval.

DMB overlays and Waxybox

So over the past week or so I got round to attaching the remaining badges to front, back and wheel centres, giving the car a good clean (testing a couple of the Waxybox goodies) and putting my private plates on. Also prep'd my old car for sale
