#543818 Mk6 Fiesta Flame 1.4 Build Log (Was Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub)

Posted by Lenny on 26 November 2015 - 11:06 AM

Sounds good,
Maybe stock pile necessary parts for spring 2016
I look forward to reading the progress,

I'm the meantime there are nice 12v electric blow heaters available quite cheap on eBay which look good

#542860 Heated Front Windscreen Not Working 100% - Same Fault As Focus?

Posted by Lenny on 23 November 2015 - 10:33 AM

The heater in windscreen has two fuses,
One for drivers side and one for passengers
so if it's clearing a perfect 50% then the fuse is blown or removed,

The wiper motion in the above video is quite therapeutic 😩

no good to me as no school bags in my boot lol! As my kids are teenagers. 25 & 19 yr olds.

Jees I was 5yrs old when you became a daddy Yunni 😅
make a tidy anchor point for handcuffs when boot is in both open and closed position

Awesome. How do you feel it performs in night and day?

it's great in day,
Doesn't have night vision but I do have dual Cree led reverse bulbs which are bright enough.

Even though it quotes Mondeo would it still be compatible? I like the look of it and I understand what you mean in regards to the fitting of it. Mmm I need to see some videos of both I think

yep it's the exact same part number as saw in my guide the CAM-FD1

The pioneer cam is permanent live which can be used as a rear view camera when driving that's an advantage over Connects2

The connects2 camera is only live when reverse is active but i suppose could be wired to ignition live.

I favour its integrated in to the boot handle and perfectly centre, can see bumper in video.

Can't see the connects2 one. Product not found on dynamic sounds. I'll probs be going for the Pioneer one to match the radio anyway.

here it is:

I was going for pioneer myself aswell but I prefer the Connects2 version because it looks factory utilising a part of the car that's already there and shows Ford how they could have done it

I do like the reversing camera. Might add it to the Xmas list ;)
Grab handles clever too

the connects2 camera is top quality
Boot door strap is great function for me too because the kids can reach it to pull down the boot after putting in there school bags,
Before fitting the strap they couldn't reach the boot to close it,
Aside from that it adds a sporty touch to the boot,
Extra WOW factor right there 😀

I am tempted although it's removing functionality. Does look so much tidier though.

here's de-wiper guide:
Saves 1280g weight on the boot door aswell
fit reverse camera👌
Boot door strap also looks sporty

Cheers both of you. I wasn't in the mood for some random electrical problem especially in the winter.

happy to help,
For optimum results I recommend having headlight alignment done after bulb change,
Bulbs can be fitted upside down;
I'm guilty of this myself was picked up by garage on alignment.

Spring coil inside bulb should be on bottom when fitting 😕



I purchase osram on eBay and bring to local garage for fitting and alignment 👍

Aww how cute is the turbo 😯
good quality battery there too BOSCH S4 👍

Bulbs should always be replaced in pairs,
When one blows; the other is never far behind.

I recommend osram NightBreaker H7 dipped beam
And Osram NightBreaker H1 for high beam

He see dipped beam And high beam are separate bulbs on the focus

#542621 How Do I Get Permanent Marker Off?

Posted by Lenny on 22 November 2015 - 06:03 PM

I just go a colour coded spoiler for my focus but the yard i got it from decided it would be a good idea to write all of the spoilers details on in permanent marker. I got a bit off with aftershave (alcohol) but wasn't too sure if its a good idea to keep using it. Any suggestions???


#542475 Opinions On Bonnet Lip

Posted by Lenny on 22 November 2015 - 10:46 AM

How was it to rub down and paint?

Josh wrapped his in gloss black,

I purchased mine from Ford in primer grey ready for painting was 28GBP three years ago,


I left it in body shop along with grills and plastic covers from engine bay to be colour coded as I can't spray atall I'm useless at it.

Fitted it myself,
Chrome lip isint real chrome neither;
It's plastic dipped,
Mine snapped in three when removing to fit the painted one.

What can I say other than ARGGGHHHHHHHHHHH :angry: .  
Admittedly doesn't help with me being a zombie from work but our little girl comes in moaning about wanting a drink, I say there is one here on the table then she goes grassing to her mum that I said there is one on the table.  Lol.  Anyway she moans it's old crying her eyes out, then drinks it anyway.  What on earth goes through there heads.  Anybody else experience these 'amazing' acts lol
Baffles me no end with some of the stuff she does and comes out with

I've two girls aged 6 & 8
they fight with each other over fashion and everything,
rat each other out then after crying screaming at each other they then come crying to us,
So you get to hear it all twice,

6 year old is going to a friend's birthday party today,
Had to go to special toy shop for present,
And today is non stop talking about party and telling the 8yr old that she's not invited only she's invited cos she's her best friend and we're going to have cake and I might spill it on my dress but that's ok cos it's my dress that I'm wearing to my friends party.
I'm reaching for the drinks cabinet 😩

I've a little lad then one year old last week,
He hardly ever cries unlike the girls he's way more relaxed.
