What is it your missus doesn't like about them exactly?


she saysPosted Image they would make me look like a billy boy racer and reckons they are only for smokers.
but she also hates tinted windows and a range of other modifications lol

i had the team heckos on my EP-91 Starlet and she didnt like them neither because she said she couldnt see the passenger side wing mirror properly.

My Missus doesn't dare say anything about what I do to the car or else she knows she'll be walking.
Anyway she sees the benefit of my climair- and yes we're both smokers.

i rang around a few places for my window tints. I then rang what i expected to be a very expensive company (they do most of ford dealerships for them). For the rears of mine the quoted incl tax £150 and i had my car back within 3 hours. Was extremely happy, they really make the car look something else.

I do like the blinds as suggested too, as a much cheaper option, I didn't know about these before i tinted my car.

You old brute Clive.

Nah she does't think they look boy racerish or anything it is just that they some how making the wind hit her even worse. So if thats the case they very impractical.

I thought they was supposed to work even if the window was half open by chaneling the front wind over the deflector and away from the window. If they only work when the windows open an inch then they pretty much pointless.

not really they are a god send in the winter and you can leave the window open an inch or so in hot weather and no one can see it either ive had them on both the focis and they have come in very handy a few times now they do channel more air away than than if you dont have them fitted

Well this turned up today and I've been looking forward to giving the poor old girl a good valet..

But it's just typical ain't it, after the hot sunny weather we've had the last few days, the day my cleaning kit turns up it has to pish down all day don't it. Knew it was gonna happen. Hopefully I'll be able to do it on the weekend before I'm back to work on Monday.

On a happier note though my rear door trims turned up day and been fitted so now the poor girl no longer has the outlines of a ghia badge burnt into her.

First thing, You need some black overlays on back, look perfect then

Secondly, car looks great, really nice. Worth the time and effort for sure From side pictures you can really see it. Curious how long did you spend on it? Ha

Lol already been looking at the black overlays for a while mate. Most likely order them next time I get paid cause I've spent a bit much the last few weeks so funds are a bit tight now for 2 weeks.

Took a good few hours lol doing a panel at a time. The photo's really don't do it justice though cause it was clouding over and the roads just reflecting in the doors making em look dull. Then can just see clouds reflected in everything else lol

Although to be honest I really can't see a difference in brightness so I dunno what all the extra led's are doing <_<

Anybody know what this could be? Rust? :unsure:

Noticed it on the bonnet and think there's a patch or two on the roof too
