Nothing new with the car as yet, will be wrapping the bonnet lip tomorrow I hope.

When payday comes around I'm going to try and get a few other bits done.

I'm struggling to find these centrecaps though, they seem a bit smaller than the standard Ford ones I bought on eBay and that seller doesn't do any smaller ones :/

Have you tried looking for non Ford ones and then considered covering their dodgy logos with DMB gels?

You might be on to something there!

Looks great,
An S badge on the grill would look sweet, finish it off nicely.

Here is the exhaust I bought, hoping to find somewhere reasonable to put it on for me:

Looks good mate,
Shouldnt cost too much to fit, looks like a straight swap with the sleeve to slide over the outlet of the rear silencer pipe. Some Autosol paste will protect the chrome and keep it looking sweet too.

Spent yesterday wrapping - not Christmas presents, but the centre console, ashtray, heater control unit and radio trim.

Quite happy with the results, a couple of bubbles but not more than that. Like others on here I am amased how much of an effect is has had. Think it updates look of the interior considerably. May now upgrade heating dials to complete the look.


Really pleased with the quality of the DAB even when living in a moderate signal aera. Sony head unit is great, still fiddling with functions.

You may be able to see that I've bought a micro USB stick (16gb) to store music on (middle of right hand side of the head unit.) This works perfectly and displays track and album data on screen.

Upgrading the aerial and cabling was a must also for me.

It has taken a little while to complete, but has been well worth it. Thanks for help and comments once again.

I'm an OEM man myself, but whatever floats your boat. When I installed the Ford Sony DAB, I just used an FM/DAB splitter on the original aerial system. I have used it up and down the country and it has been flawless. I was sceptical at first before I bought it, but I can't recommend it enough.

Rh1no, did you use 3M DiNoc to wrap your bonnet lip?
