Nice, you need to get the handbrake done now, would finish off the interior nicely, I had it done on my old Fiesta, looks much better than the standard plastic one:

Nice, how did you go about that? I thought all the Mk7 fiesta's had hard plastic handbrake handles.

Its the leather handbrake from the interior pack.

 

I got my local dealer to supply and fit as the entire lever has to be replaced, which involves disconnecting the handbrake cable, removing the front seat.

 

Cost me no more than £200-250 all in from memory.

Hehe, the disadvantage of coming on forums, I have done a fair bit to my Fiesta and Focus I'd never have done without coming on here. :lol:

Alex, do you have any part numbers for the handbrake?

Bailey, already got the illuminated gear knob on my wish list.

Right then, can't believe that I haven't touched the car since July. The weather here in West Wales has been awful which hasn't helped. But plans are afoot. I haven't wanted to fit the scuff plates yet purely as it's been so miserable here that I can't strip the interior for the wiring, but have gotten sick of them siting in the garage so will take the car to work on a day and do them then. But another job I have planned is that since fitting the interior my steering wheel doesn't as nice anymore. So this was purchased today off eBay:

When that arrives it's going straight off to be re trimmed mmmm lovely. More updates soon.

Thought I'd get a job done today that has been one I should have done a long time ago but have simply not bothered. When I bought the illuminated scuff plates you'll recall the one of them had loads of ripped and torn adhesive tape from where it had obviously been fitted. Now the plates are designed to obviously sit flush on the bodywork but if I simply went with more tape on top they wouldn't and there would be potential for dirt etc to get underneath. So got the gelsol out the garage and gave it a liberal coating.

I then went and had a bash on Forza whilst that had a good soak. Came back a bit later and carefully pulled off all the old adhesive tape with a butter knife. Cleaned it up nicely and was ready for the new tape. I stupidly forgot to take a pic of the clean underside but this is it with the new tape.

This picture shows you what I mean about the tape and the fact that it sits flush when you see it against the tape it comes with.

Hopefully if the weather is good on Sunday I'll get it wired up. They will be fitted then at the least.

Leather interior is black, I do want to change dash etc to a black one as I don't like my two tone bluey one. Cost of retrim isn't finalised yet as I may change an aspect of it. Should be just over £100.

Ahh your lucky. My interior is all that weird two tone blue. I was thinking of getting it covered in alcantara at some point.

Ah ok cheers mate, I've wanted to get mine retrimmed in suede for a while
