Have you done a few modifications to your car? Or gone all out and made a load of modifications? Why not start your own build thread in the NEW Ford Projects and Builds section ( http://www.fordowner...topicfilter=all ) and show off your motor and what you've done to your pride and joy :) maybe even get some inspiration on what to do next from looking at other peoples threads :).

OR

If you just want to discuss something to do with modifying why not post it in the NEW dedicated Modification Discussions section http://www.fordowner...on-discussions/

Enjoy

FOC :)

Is there a way to make the bonnet release on a Focus a SENSIBLE one with a pull under the dash, rather than the "AARRGGHHHHH!!!!" inducing Ignition Key one?

I was looking into this on the cmax but had to get rid of the car in the end. It is possible but requires a fair amount of work. You can remove the bonnet lock assembly and replace it with one from a car like a fusion or mondeo, it would then need to be welded on in the right place.ypu then need to make a hole through the firewall and feed a release cable and it's sheath through there and attack it to the primary release on the bonnet catch, and then fit an internal release on the inside, you might need to weld this on the inside or bolt it onto place. You will need to adjust the length of the cable and test it.

It is doable but not the easiest to accomplish but would be well worth it.

Hmm....  Or I suppose there the option of just throwning the whole damned thing away and using locking bonnet pins. ;)

I was tossing and turning but favouring the new release mechanism. Bonnet pins would definitely have worked, but it's best to get the flat handle style with keys to unlock as a protruding pin could be an mot failure. My car was crashed into and exchanged a short while before I started the conversion.

Yeah, I was looking for SVA approved ones, and the flat ones with handles look the best. meanwhile I have to get the *four letter word alluding to a lady's front bottom* to open on the key, and the key won't even *four letter word alluding to 2 people doing something very intimate* TURN!! *Word alluding to Child born out of wedlock*!

 

*sigh*
