Mk 1 Focus 1.8 Lx

Recommended Posts

Just recently bought a focus after previously owning one. It's a 1.8 LX only 50K from new. Hope to do few bits to it over time.

Next up a new stereo. Wanted one I could connect to my phone for music & calls. As don't really use CDS anymore went for one without CD drive. Also fitted the leads to keep my stalk control working. Nice easy job.

Might change the Speakers as well, but will see how it goes first.

With regards to the stereo I got a auto leads lead that did the job for me. Got it from Halfords cost about £30, but can get them on line a lot cheaper. I just didn't want to wait!

The de badging I heated up the badges with heat gun then used plastic scraper to get them off, then cut we're they were and polished. Just a case of taking your time & using something that won't scratch your paint.

Hope this helps! Can post a link for the cable you need if wanted?

I would be tempted to leave the zetec on, as I only have an LX model they had to go!!
