Footwells do look good, so does the new pedals.

What bulbs are you using for headlights?

Done well at wrapping, valiant effort, look much better.

Liking it so far, what LED's did you go for in the footwells and sidelights?

Also your interior light does it have Submarine lighting or just a standard map light with blue led's?

totally agree mate,

the are a fantastic tool but safety glasses is a must have item along with the dremel tool,

i reckon they should sell an extension lead with a foot pedal similar to a sowing machine pedal,

so then we could plug in the dremal and start/stop using the footpedal would be much safer.

yup can be a bit awkward having the speed and the power button on opposite sides when trying to reach round and switch it off while it's still running lol

My Osram H1's will be delivered tomorrow and my cree reverse lights should hopefully be here soon.

Mods to do hopefully in the near future are the second reverse light and the rear LED foot-wells

But if any of you have read my recent topic, you will know I had yet another run in with a lorry today :( result: rear bumper now needs replacing. Contemplating an ST rear bumper.

Not looking good if you see my rear bumper :(

Do you reckon I could fit a mk3 bumper to my mk2? Obviously I'd need the new reverse lights but is the fitting different or would it bolt straight on?

yes the mk2.5 facelift focus rear bumper will fit your mk2 direct replacment part, providing their is no structural dammage preventing the fitment of the bumper. in the event that you need to drive around without the bimper for a while see my thread here http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/32690-reduce-reuse-and-recycle/page__hl__%2Breduce+%2Breuse+%2Brecycle

also as said you will need the reverse and fog light unit, but if you are buying them then purchase two clear units one for each side then use your existing fog or reverse unit to create the additional port for the fog light on the side of the RH clear unit.

you will also require two loom plugs

they plug in to the rear of the bulb sockets and are different on the mk2 compared to the mk2.5

so if creating the dual reverse then you can use the original plug for the fog light unit and bond your existing fog liht to the side of the new clear mk2.5 unit,

then purcase two mk2.5 loom plugs for both reverse unit bulb sockets.

i can guide you through the removal and fitment of the bumper if required start a new thread or PM me, so as we dont clog your thread.

i havent got a clear picture of the plug itself but it looks like this for the mk2.5

Nice one Lenny, waiting for a bloke to get back to me then hopefully I'll be able to buy a mk2.5 bumper. It will be a complete one though so it'll have the normal lights, so I'll still have to buy a clear driver-side light for the second reverse light.

Whats everyone reckon? bright enough? I still maintain though, even though they look nice and white in photo's, I still think they still look yellow when actually standing in front of them :wacko: are they supposed to?

Oh and went to de-badge the rear today, but the previous lady owners obviously haven't looked after the paintwork :mellow:

323850_470930212925537_2053898582_o.jpg

Can anyone advice on the best way of touching this up so there won't be random white patches when I de-badge? I have a colour matched spray can from halfords with a can of primer and lacquer as well, I also have a halfords scratch repair kit which I haven't got round to using properly yet.

Haven't looked properly I'll have a better look tomorrow but it looked more like the paints come off, not sure how it would have happened though. But the car don't look like its been polished in a long time so if it is polish god knows how long its been on there.

you are aware that halfords bulbs are in fact very cheap bulbs at a massive mark up.
