Nice did you use the link I posted for the plates there so much better than pressed and the exhaust looks good any chance of a sound clip?

Pumped tyres and added more screenwash in the pouring rain. I was soaked by the time I had finished!

 

Driving to Scotland tomorrrow and staying on an estate called Ellary, near Lochgilphead, Argyll :)

 

I work the fuel out by resetting and taking a note of the trip and mpg out at half a tank. I filled up twice and got 296 and 348 miles averaging at 60mpg to a tank of deisel.

The black trim on my Fiesta was looking a bit sad and grey from the harsh Australian sun, so I decided to try some Meguiar Gold Class Trim Detailer.

 

Worked a treat and my trim looks as new again!  :P

Have now heard from a Ford..... employee in the servicing department that they are seeing problems with bulbs continually blowing in the front headlights....!

 

My side lights keep going, and have had the main beam bulb blow...  Apparently its the resistors!

Seen this post pop up many times, so thought as this will be the 400'th post, i'd add my bit. Today I have replaced the timing belt, timing belt tensioner & idler wheel, and also replaced the aux belt & tensioner. Fresh antifreeze, front pads and discs and treated her to a new air freshener to complete the job lol. Long day, but feel at ease now.

Finally got round to fitting my new asian grill after spending the last week and a half painting the inserts (due to work, and not being able to proceed when I should have been able to)

Anyways. I'm happy with the result :)

Grille, after I attach my number plate:

While I'm here I thought I'd update on my recent purchases and next projects-

 

£42 instead of £80+ -

20130926_230929.jpg 20130926_230959.jpg 20130926_231253.jpg

 

Also to finish off my RS carbon theme inside I've acquired this nice bit of kit-

 

RS Console 1.jpg RS Console 2.jpg

 

Individual bits from Ford = £500ish, my price £90 including the handbrake trim.

I already have a MK2.5 Gear knob surround trim so that bits sorted.

I just need to source the console brackets (£15 and £5 for both) and side trims to go from the front of the console to under the dash (£40 each) and job's a good un'.
