Making Brake Line.

16 September 2014 - 02:20 PM

I'm in the middle of trying to sort out my break lines, as I have various section that are very corroded. I've got 3/16 copper brake line to replace the damaged section, flare kit to create the lines and M/F metric unions.

 

I've been practising flaring the pipe, which I can do really well, especially on a double flare.

 

But the union doesn't seem right to me, can someone advise from the images that I am connecting the union correctly and will hold if it's done this way for the breaks.

Mondeo 2.5 V6 Brake Lines

31 August 2014 - 01:49 PM

Does anyone know where I can find some metal brake line, I've got a split in the main line near the rear driver side (This is where both lines for the rear meet). I'm looking at repairing the break, rather than paying for the full lines to be replaced. So I'm after some metal break line tube, does anyone know where I get this?

 

Cheers guys.


Mk3 Suspension/wishbone Replacement + Rear Coils

05 August 2014 - 07:59 PM

I'm starting to get really annoyed with my car now, I've recently put it through an MoT and it failed.

 

I need to replace both front wishbones/suspension arms and though got the majority of the tools for the job, I'm missing a star drive. Anyone know what size this is?

 

Also is their any good guides on doing the replacement, as some say drop sub frame, where as others say use jack.

 

What replacing the coil springs on the back, I've changed these on an Astra and Volvo is it going to be the same procedure?

 

All help is greatly appreciated.


Making My Mondeo Angry

27 April 2014 - 02:53 PM

I own a Mondeo Ghia X - Duratec 2.5 V6

 

She's not angry enough for me.

 

I believe that V6 | V8 | V12  should sound like the engines that they are (Grunty, Heavey & Angry), not the subtle grunt every now and then. So I'm looking at making mine very angry, I will be modding the car in and out as I'm changing the bodywork to look more like the ST(the car even looks wimpy). I'm already looking into a Dual Cat Split Exhaust system and having the engine cleaned from top to bottom (Ports cleaned and polished, pistons replaced etc). All that will just bring the engine back up to condition, so I need some advice on how to improve from their.


Stolen Plates

17 March 2014 - 06:43 PM

I just want to make people aware, I had my number plates stolen on Saturday 15th March.

 

I know who has stolen them and they have been reported to police as stolen, but if anyone see's these being used other than on an Ford Mondeo Ghia X then it's not my car and so can you report the location where they have been seen and the type of car they are on to the police.

 

PLATE: FN02XMA

 

Cheers Guys.
