My Build Thread-- Preee

142 posts in this topic

Well i'm going to make a build thread this time for my Mk3 with the little jobs i will be doing.

Focus Titanium X (150)

20120916_142558_zps004acb09.jpg

I have so far fitted Smd Leds to the two boots lights , plug and play and made a massive difference in colour and lighting in there.

Today i started my brake Calipers in Blue , prefer them to be blue as its a better contrast against the Frozen White. So far looks great but i have still to do the rear disc's so i will upload pictures when its finished.

Thanks Sal. Remap hmmmmmm not any time soon me think's , TBH it does not need it and at my age i might frighten myself haha.A Gain of about 30bhp is what they say for the (150) putting it the same as the ZS. Maybe when the warranty expires :).

Finished the Calipers not bad for my first attempt never done them before and i like the blue against the White , finished just in time as it started raining.Greased up all the Wheel nuts and back plates before i put the wheels back on i had hell of a job getting one of the wheels off.

Thanks artscot , I'm glad I picked blue over the red. Yeah wheel was a pain to get off and took full weight of car and rubber mallet before it gave up. No way would I have got it off at the road side.

I'm following this thread with interest Pree - I'm hoping you will inspire me to do some more to my car ;)

I really want to paint my brake calipers (and the drums on the back - wish I had disks!)... I want red to go with my black car - considered blue like yours to go with the backlighting, but don't think it'll go on a black car. Looks awesome on white though. Obviously the drums would be black and not the dirty rusty colour they are at the moment!

Keep up the good work :)

It's crazy just to see how much rush there is around there , you would think Ford would either grease them or at least blow them over with a little paint.

Green would look nice against the Black. i have seen a few yellow on black cars thats looks ok as well.

Here's the Paint i used from Fleabay

Looks great Preee, I might take the plunge eventually and get mine in red (black car) might have to wait for a while though.

Really like the look of the blue against white, great choice!

Fitted today clear rear brake light , brought from Foci.

Matches in better than the old red light.

Removed two hex screws , pull forward, disconnect rear washer tube , reconnect washer tube to new light , slide back in and replace the hex screws , 2 minute job :)
