I think it's just a standard sidelight bulb ? 501 ?

Took the ST for a Mountune, would still hope they manage to get 240bhp out of the girl, that way I'll be totally happy without having to void the ole warranty :P

 

Has the ZS fitted with the Mountune badge! It's in my cup holder because the one that came with had no sticky -.- ordered a new one for me :P

Clarky, I clay barred machine polished with Meg's ultimate compound and a medium pad, followed with Meg's #7 glaze and finished with a coat of collonite 845. It's stunning gives better reflection than some black cars I've detailed.


I thought about getting a machine polish done, does it remove some of the clearcoat and protection of the paint? Sorry if its a stupid question :)

Not if done properly, you'll only remove a few microns. And if Clayed polished and waxed to you'll be better protected than the day it left the factory.

It was actually quite enjoyable lol, was like, 'Damn I bet that looked good,' when if honest if anyone had been around to see it, would have probably been wiped off the planet >_>

 

Was quite a fair amount of oil dropped, not sure how it all managed to get there.

Hi all. Newbie and first post, but a regular visitor to the site so decided to take the plunge and register!. My only other previous ford was a red D reg XR2, in its day a crackin/fun little car to drive, my 'NOW' ford is Panther black Zetec S which I have to say drives BRILLLL!. Even at the ripe ol' age of 44 I feel I should add a few subtle understated refinements, less is more!.

 

1) Debadged the rear, leaving the Ford badge.

2) Replaced front/rear badges with black/chrome DMB gel overlays

3) Replaced ford wheel centres with silver/black DMB gel overlays

4) Fitted Climair deflectors

5) Manufactured bracket from stainless steel and mounted Ford S badge to front grill.

6) Added red stitching to Ford mats

7) Lockwood 'S' doorsills

 

I would like to fit mud flaps but not keen on the rally type myself and I guess there arent any standard mudflaps that can be fitted to an 'S' model, ideas welcome.

 

I do have a new black/red DMB gel overlay if anybody wants it, I was going to fit it to the steering wheel but changed my mind. I also have a second mounting bracket for the Ford 'S' badge if someone wants it, local please as dont want to post, Brum. 

 

Cheers guys
