Nice one Lenny , glad you had a good time and it was worth it, we all know how much you have been looking forward to it.
You deserve a break mate, but something tells me in the future you won't be able to help yourself ;-)
You have inspired many of us focus lovers to get are car looking beautiful like your own.
Make sure you keep an eye out on how we are all getting on with ours, your tips are always useful and also your respectful thoughts and comments give us that extra boost...
You take care and Have a good break Lenny
Kind regards
Ollie

 
Thanks Ollie,
I'll keep an eye on the forum to get updates on your builds,
It is difficult to stop after three years of non stop purchasing and planning but its reached its peak for what it is.
After seeing all the ST and RS at ford fair im beginning to miss petrol and the flutter of turbo.

 

absolutely amazing mate! you must be so proud looking at the difference over the years - great to see how happy you are!
i hate to say this, but i can see you getting bored of watching your bank balance rise and start upgrading! hahaa

  
Thanks Aldoo,
At this stage with the car so far progressed, I feel like its not really happening
I must have bumped my head and now in comma lol
Chasing dreams is fun and furfilling but when complete, what is a man to do with his time,
I've got 2 kids too and summers here so holidays are on the plan aswell as a new TV lol
Got my driving test next week aswell lmao
Can't wait to see the testers face when I pull up, stripes and all ;)
I should have applied long ago, driving 5 years now been too busy modding lol

She looked well at Portrush on Sunday. Was nice to put a face to the name too!

  
Thanks Stuart,
I called over to see ya later on Sunday but you wernt there at the time,
Then I looked over around 17:00 and your cars were gone,
Your motor was looking tidy and good display location, nice job on the Mk5 rear diffuser on silver fiesta too, I didn't take enough pictures of cars, It was difficult at times with so many people around them

I was hoping to get to the Portrush show, but it wasn't to be. She looks well mate!

  
Thanks Andy,
Sorry to hear you couldn't make it

good to hear you injoyed the show fella and have for filled your moding ideas.
the car is a real credit to you and injoy your break

 
Thanks very much,
I'll keep in touch and can be emailed any time leonard.Woods@live.ie

It seems like the fair had quite an effect on you like you have seen something, had an epithany and your perspective has changed, Lenny, is there a particular car/ cars  you saw that did this or was it the whole thing?

Id have to say; it was the whole thing mate,
RS and ST focus everywhere aswell as escorts all turbo petrol and sounding sweet with the dump valve and exhaust tone.
I know the fuel costs out way the enjoyment but they looked awsome lol
I look at what I've spent on my focus and for all the mods its only 120bhp compared to the power witnessed its not much.
I then look at increasing power; what can I do to get the most from my 1.6TDCi
Well I found a hybrid turbo, upgrade clutch and intercooler along with remap and dpf removal will bring it up to around 140bhp
But that would cost a further 2,200 Gbp to complete and although it would be special, it still wouldn't perform like an ST
I think my focus has reached its limit,

I must say though; the eibachs and 18's have made it really fun on the bends.
And currently getting 63.4Mpg
The only mods I have planned now are ST front and rear bumpers with TripleRcomposites front splitter,
I think the 1 piece panels will look better than the attached.

Hi mate the Invoice says:

Ford 300mm
Colour: silver metallic
Application: External Custom Text: [www.FordOwnersClub.com ]
Qty: 3
Cost: £9.75

When typing www.FordOwnersClub.com in to the box for them to print it; Don't forget to make the F, O and C. In capital letters the same as I have done on mine makes it stand out better IMO breaks up the text for quick reading.

Update,
i decided to have a try at painting the embossed print on the engine cover,
i masked the area pressing the masking tape heavily around the endented text,

i then got a soft sanding disc fitted to the top of the dremil and set the speed to the lowest possible,

i then began sanding the layer of masking tape and paint from the text on the engine cover,
resulting in the surrounding area retaining the masked surface.

my next search is for some ford blue and a syringe
to fill in the areas surrounding the silver ford logo inside the oval on the engine cover.

I'd assume you reached the total for your free storage then?
I'm at about 55%, how much did they sting you for extra storage and how much more do they give you?
