Small unexpected update regarding the focus:

IMG_20140507_124841_zps4xedmy4_edit_1399

Received a personally addressed application entry form for "Cause Way Coast Ford Fair 2014"
Taking place in Portrush Co.Antrim on 1st June,

This will be the 10th Anniversary at Cause Way Coast and the entry prize looks pretty sweet,

Sadly for me though i wont be traveling up this year,
Still it was very nice of them to write to me with the application,

Update:
When the ZetecS kit was being sprayed and fitted to the car i had supplied two bottles of grey tiger seal to use when fitting the front lip etc.

However the two bottles of grey tiger seal were returned to me when collecting the car, I was told by the body shop they had used somthing better, although i know myself nothing is better than tiger seal :lol:
I investigated the true reason why it wasn't used and was told they didn't have big enough clamps to hold the lip in place if using tiger seal so instead they used 3M double sided tape to bond the front lip,

The tape has held for quite some time now, but through using chemicals to remove tar and bugs during high pressure car washes the bond on the 3M tape has began to deteriorate,

Notice the separation on the drivers side

IMG_20140519_101632_zpsnegxekh_edit_1400

It only needs some tiger seal instead of the 3M tape,
I'm considering a change,
Well at present I'm financially tied up in preparation for our wedding in August but before Christmas i plan to change the front end from ZetecS to the 1 piece ST bumper have tge washer jet holes smoothed over and attach a TripleRcomposites ST front splitter perhaps have the ST grills done in piano black aswell resulting in a one piece panel rather than sourcing a professional to bond the existing lip.

In doing this change ill lose:
Gloss black grills,
TripleRcomposites front splitter,
Drl fog surrounds,
ZetecS badge,
ZetecS front lip,
Front bumper,

I would like to sell it all as one,
Since the ZetecS is not available in Ireland i would like to keep it within the country as a rare piece but if anyone's interested let me know as it would speed up my exchange process,

Just thinking aloud here

i will check the haynes manual and get back to you,
Splice speaker only,
Because the tweeter only does high's and vocals subs and 6" components do bass

LH rear speaker
grey/white - terminal C442/8 from rear of stereo
White/violet + terminal C442/4 from rear of stereo

RH rear speaker
Grey/white - terminal C442/5 from rear of stereo
White/violet + terminal C442/1 from rear of stereo

Both sets of cable are solid grey and solid white colours at rear of stereo however they change to there striped colours on the door card looms
For best results on bass id splice in to the 6" component on tge door card itself,
Because at that point the sound will have been split via the crossover box ensuring only the deep tones are sent to the 6" speaker,
This way you will be sure its only deep tones going to your sub,

Also dont forget about the 12v supply behind the drivers side boot panel,
Run that to the amp save yourself running a feed from the battery as its already factory fitted.

Image14485.jpg

Your amp will also have an ignition positive sensor feed,
This single cable generaly blue in colour needs to be spliced to a feed that becomes positive when the key is turned, just the same as the stereo does,

Splice in to the large orange cable on the rear of the heater control unit in the centre console
