Alternative option:
I've painted my brows on like your grandma,
Mask up the factory line that's scribed in the lens of the headlights.

Nice, make sure and get some pics up when they're on.
I'll be getting pics up this weekend of my new spoiler :) and clean car providing the rain/hail/sleet/snow stays away !
Sent from my iPhone 5s.

Santa beat me up then stole my wallet in the waiting area of A&E at Hospital :lol:
Highly recommend using some bathroom silicone around the bolt and clip holes on the boot panel before fitting the st spoiler,
A common problem is leaks in this area,
So applying silicone is preventative maintenance,
Any colour will do as it won't be saw, i done mine at the time too.

Exhaust looks excellent mate,
They made a nice job on the spliting of the pipes should get equal levels of steam exiting on frosty mornings,
Is it silenced or straight through?

If i remove the chrome trim which is broken already will the zetec S grill fit straight in?

Chrome wont fit the zetecS grill, but the zetecS grill will fit standard bumper,
Straight swap

Im not suggesting wheather it should or shouldn't be done,
Just saying if you're gonna do it well that's how :lol:

Never jump petrol vehicle with a diesel or diesel with petrol,
So if stranded in middle of nowhere freezing cold waiting 40 minutes for someone to come along to help,
Your in a petrol and they have a diesel; turn em away and continue to suffer :lol:

I saw the image on twitter and decided to share it with y'all wingy shower.

How much would you want per meter with p&p Lenny?

Including shipping would be £4 for the first metre then £2 per metre after that including shipping up to a length of 5 metres as 5 is the most i can offer.

I'm looking forward to replacing the rear speakers next! They're currently just disconnected, as ive used the original plug to connect the amp to the loom. I ran out of speaker wire so I couldn't make a loom for the back doors although I've got some on order.

I've got 25 metres of Vibe FlatFlex if you're short a few metres let me know as ill hardly need all that :lol:

Hopefully JL will have a few sales in January! I can't wait to get my car audio finished! Being at work so much recently is showing me how good sound can be & it's making me jealous :(
Santa's robbed two of us by the sounds of it! It's horrible not being able to splash on the car :(

 take your time purchase once and enjoy the process,
I can't complain about not spending anything this month as ill make up for it between January and April :lol: and id only be stock piling the project for May deadline,
it's well worth seeing the kids faces on Christmas morning.

The whole setup looks so sweet. I must say the hydro dipping is really well done and IMHO looks nicer than the wrap. Good use of the carbon wrap for the amp.
To both Kieran and Lenny, I just got an EBay alert this morning that the price of the JL Audio Jx500/1 mono block has been reduced. I have not checked the 250 version. Worth a look on EBay and I will dig up the link and post it. That one also comes with the optional bass cable. Pretty sweet deal. I am tempted myself to get it and sell my one lol

Cheapest I've saw the JX250/1 Mono amp was £98.00 with free shipping and one of those controls which id personally sell onwards since the pioneer headunits give full equaliser control there's no need for it really,
Link to JX250/1: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121489040227

So today I had a day off work so I decided I would Amp the front speakers. I had already installed the power & phono cables, all I had to do was install the remote cable.
After installing everything & turning on the ignition... Nothing happened... Rather worried I checked all the cables were secure and used one of the DRL's I purchased to test for 12v as I had forgotten my multimeter. In the end I found the problem to be the remote cable. It was made so cheaply that if you tried to strip the ends it would simply snap... Wasn't happy. after fitting a new cable my ears began to smile! What a difference!!
Here are a few images of the amp in situ. Ignore the messy car... It's getting a good valet & detail in January.

The amp install under the seat has turned out really good mate very nice work there.

I've got a spare Vibe signal loom unused if you're interested,
Also have a 8AWG power cable and earth with inline fuse.

My reversing camera's just arrived! :)

look forward to seeing this fitted soon,
Don't forget to select PAL or NTSC signal on the headunit for instant image when reversing.
And earth camera to the body work.

I'm glad he pulled through and I'm sure your all relieved, but I would certainly be raising a complaint about those events.
He looks well though for his fight and I hope you all get some quality family time soon!

Thanks jeeb,
Have another X-ray on 23rd
We have to phone in advance of arriving FFS!
They going to walk ahead of us ringing a bell "unclean" "unclean" :lol:
The state of health care in this country seriously is horrific,
Im staying quiet until we get the all clear because although there not fully competent they are all we have to help.
