Ok did you just take it to a paint sprayer or did you take it to ford and I take it that they are safe to buy from then


I took it to a local car sprayer. & all I can say is that I've ordered 2 items from them with no problems

Gary - Thanks for the info and pics. 

 

Thats a very impressive price! 

 

I will get some prices sorted when ive finished working and will look into it. 

 

- Brian  - Yeh Kingswinford is about 20 mins from my house. 

 

However i would have to get back to you on when. 

 

I work till 6 (everyday) - and am at London all this weekend. 

 

Still havent received these mudflaps, i will give it 1 more day and then ring them! 

 

This tip looks fairly nice:

then again the one Gary got from Halfords looks good.

DAN-
Just ensure any 'tip' is long enough to reach the exhaust cut out in the defuser so it sits 'right'. Hard to say for sure, but the turborevs one in the link looks to short.
Admittedly I stumbled on my Rip speed 'tip' more by accident than design, but I really like it.

Gary - Great advice. Its probably best to fit the diffuser and then make measurements for the exhaust tip. 

 

Appreciate your input.

This is my 'tip' viewed from below the car, when I get a chance I'll measure it up to give you an idea of the length.

EDIT-
I've measured it & it's 24.5cn's long.

another quick question. 

 

I can see that ford have used a various tool (screw driver) to pin the original diffuser on - im assuming you just used a small flat and made do?

It's got one pot rivet either side, I drilled it out & used a self tapping screw, after drilling a small pilot hole first.

Brian - Definitely will look different - whats that colour actually called? 

 

Gary - Top man, thanks again! 

 

I am still waiting for these mud-flaps. 

 

Im gonna ring them tommorow and see where they are =( 

 

Anyway, 

 

Im thinking about going ahead with this ST diffuser and get it ordered.

 

 

If your interested Brian, i might try and be cheeky by emailing them and asking discount for two.  :P  

 

let me know if your interested. Or if the postage is expensive from abroad, having one lot of postage and then meeting to finish off the tail pipe. 

 

Only if you are interested that is.

I've measured it & it's 24.5cn's......You were very close :)
Any shorter than 24cn's wouldn't look right IMO.
