Cameras looking great,
Ive got fuzzy lines on mine because ive earth it to the reverse loom instead of earthing to the body so i need to sort it out.
Then ill be as cool as you with your nice clear picture on screen :)
Pain in the A55 to install but pure euphoric feeling when its done.

So here's a few pictures of the conduit I purchased! Note the horrible greenish colour of the included zip ties (left) and the more blue coloured ones I had from when I first bought the car.

The silicone tubing in the left hand corner is what I've got left from my windscreen washers. It has an inner diameter of 4mm. The tubing I originally put on had an outer diameter of 4mm (silly me!) so the mist washers I had fitted barely touched the windscreen at the best of times. Now I've fitted the 4mm ID the mist almost washes the car! Haha
Will take a few snaps tomorrow as I add abit more conduit attachicon.gifImageUploadedByFord OC1422054182.612795.jpg

 Conduit is looking good mate i have the same kit in my kitchen well not fitted obviously :lol: just storing it there.

Just been having a play with the sub... It'll play 10hz.. Daren't turn it right up to get a dB reading but the flex is ridiculous!!! WOW
The MDF enclosure flexes at the front.. And it's managed to blow a corner slightly.. You can hear the air chugging out! :D BA BABABABABABABABABBAAAASSSSSS

:lol: sounds awesome the sub has blown its own port in the enclosure that's impressive what spec is the amp?

No prob mate, all i can say is take your time, swap it out like for like,
Use half a plastic drinks bottle to store removed bolts, use WD40 on stuboren bolts spray on and try after two minutes,
And best of luck top respect to you goin at it yourself.

Had a good laugh reading the last few posts.
The guy selling the Focal is selling it for 200 but I reckon he would be open to an offer. Think brand new they retail around £200 on Ebay. One guy is selling a used set for £180. I will find some links once I am on the computer and will post it to your thread. Best thing though would be to have the same speakers front and rear.

i thought they were £600 per set brand new, maybe worth upgrading your rears from vibe aswell at that price keep em all the same, :)
The focus Mk2 Ghia saloon rear door cards have tweeters below the handles perhaps the markings are on the inside of the door card of the mk2.5 for drilling,
Small picture but can see the tweeter location:

Looking great all the mods are proper tidy mate fair play styling it nicely,
Dual reverse light mod would compliment your HID's if your stuck for ideas,
And did you get a chance to get near the reverse camera, been fairly cold out.

Treated the car to some limo black tints :)attachicon.gifImageUploadedByFord OC1422124052.105448.jpg

Very nice mate but limo black is 90% tint almost impossible to see out rear window,
35% is dark enough without seeing in but each to there own,
The focus looks good tinted regardless of level

Ok thanks Lenny. So do I need to drain oil before I take the old turbo out? :-)
Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

You would mate,
Ive not done the process myself but i believe the oil sump pan needs removing to gain access to the gause at the base of the turbo feed pipe,
Sump pan gets cleaned and the turbo feed pipe replaced.

Posted by Lenny on 24 January 2015 - 01:32 PM

Mind upgrading the front discs will move the brake bias forward esp if you have drums on the back an upgraded discs an pads in the front, ive been rearing a lot on this recently with my rear disc project, you'll probably be looking at around a 75/25 split upgrading the fronts alone, by default its around a 70/30. The back end of a diesel is pretty light so it may increase oversteer if your not careful an go over the top with it


Ah a little bit on the roundabouts is nice :)

Hi guys. Is there a guide on here on how to replace a turbo or can anybody shoot some advice my way as have not got the finances available now to take it a garage so going to have to so it myself. Much appreciated. Thanks :-)

Your most likely not going to like this news but ive gotta tell you.
Replacing a blown turbo with a functioning one will soon blow it too.
Ive saw this happen with a friends focus within two months of replacing it.

Alot of people dont know that you need to replace the turbo oil feed pipe from oil sump pan to the turbo.
Because the existing one will be caked with sludge this causes the first turbo to fail.

After replacing oil feed kit,
Put fresh oil in,
Run for 15 minutes,
Add wynnes engine flush
Run for 5 minutes,
Drop out oil
Fill up fresh.

Turbo oil feed replacement kits retail from 60-110 pounds one supplier is fordpartsuk.com
No point risking another turbo mate.
This is the precedure all good mechanics go through.

Is this the one Lenny?http://www.micksgara...spx?pid=1435308

I don't think it is,
I saw Halfords in Wexford stock Bosch on the shelves S4 is a silver battery,

Also use micksgarage to find details of the brake discs you require by putting in your reg it displays only items specific to your car.
Select brake discs they give details specific to the ones you require,
You can then buy on eBay knowing you need details matching micksgarage description

Sounds good. Using JLs as projectiles? Could've said before I sold the sub.. The pure weight would knock you out the water

:lol: JL as projectiles who are they again?

You bringing the Focal's with you? I'll grab them before they touch the water
Dib dib dib

Considering there second hand they may have touched water already mate :) and there's no chance I'm bringing them because there collection only and if I'm sick to death of hearing it, id also leave myself with no aspirations in life to aspire to because theres nothing better than them in the world.

Just had a look at the Focal's :)
That's about £150GBP isn't it Lenny? Really good price! I'll have to scrape together funds and I'll take them for that price!
Thanks for sharing the link Hassen

i dunno mate i havent even clicked on the link :lol:

Tell ya what though:
Two bows one arrow each, we'll meet around isle of man in some inflatable boats from Argos,

One shot with the arrow,
if you sink my battle ship you get the focals hows that sound?

I'm beginning to feel that I'm going to be dead in the water: if i don't have a set of Focals in my car.
I get first shot because the Golden link was post on MY build thread ok?
:lol:

True story:
Last Sunday i went to church,
Priest got a new speaker system installed in the chapel Ow Yes!!
He was boasting about how good it sound, myself and vicki were almost in tears with laughter as i theorised "yeah they have gotta be some Focals"

Bottom line:
Focal The Business Period..... No Quibble
Stop what your doin to your cars now people; if it ain't focal your working with then it ain't worth discussing.

Focal 165 KR used

Link: http://www.fordowner...-20#entry447892
Ive got my own system all planned out the way i want it to be myself.
Thanks anyway.
