#333010 Rust On 3 Year Old Door Frame?!!

Posted by Lenny on 16 February 2014 - 04:56 PM

My focus began rusting within 6 months of purchase,
In any case i reckon your better off paying a body shop to repair the area as they will do it properly as your paying for it to be done,
ford however
They will take the oppertunity to educate themselves on the art of spraying and repair, main occupation sales man but he will give it a go at spraying, purchasing a can of paint from ford etis for under 20 pounds and spraying it on his lunch break then in to vacuum monkey for a spit and polish.
Charge you 5 hours labour plus paint and tell you " our specialised paint repair department sorted that for you"
you will drive away out of severely out pocket but content in the beliefs that you have done right by going to ford with it as most would assume but no within 12 months the rust will reappear and you'll realise you were raped, you will at that point go back to ford to complain about being in for paint repair 12months ago, but that visit wont be on record with ford because the sales man done the job, pocketed your money and it never went through the books at ford at all, they will then offer to sell you a 2015 model with " anti chip film" you starting to see what im saying here:huh:

The body shop will do it correctly,
sanding away the rust down to the clean metal,
Prime the metal to prevent rust creep,
Then a sand smooth
Followed by colour coat
Finishing with a hard clear liquor
job done correctly not job disguised only to reappear in 12months time.
Ford just want to sell,
Don't be surprised if they sit you in a show model tomorrow and offer to add the additional "anti chip protection cover" on this model for an additional 400 pounds. ;)
All dealerships are the same shower of cash cowboys
Sorry if that seems negative but its sadly the truth I've been there saw it.


#332950 Remove Part From Front Lip

Posted by Lenny on 16 February 2014 - 02:57 PM

I wanted to know if there is a way to remove a part from the picture (red circle) that i have attached. is important because i am going to paint my lip. 

Yeah it can be masked or removed mate,
Is the lip currently fitted to the car or free from the car?

If free from the car,
Use some petrol to dissolve the adhesive holding them on there as its only double sided tape.

Well the levin is officially on the road since 00:01 15/02/2014
First drive was yesterday morning took it for a nice calm country drive with the family, handles pretty well, ride is surprisingly soft on the speed ramps but absolutely no lean from the chassis on corners it just stays flat meaning its difficult to feel the grip on the rear or when your gonna lose the rear grip because it wont ever !Removed! a wheel like a little terrier dog :D

The full service and spark plug upgrade along with exhaust repair and lambda sensor have all played there part guys this thing is a !Removed! rocket :lol:
If taken to the red line in 1st and 2nd when half way through 3rd your doing 160kmh :o with another 3 gears left and the rasp sounds like a Yamaha R1 due to the same company designing the velocity stack 4 throttle body induction system for Toyota back in the day.
You can hear the whistle of air on induction
Currently completely stock induction filter and exhaust everything is standard.

Currently watching the fuel gauge,
But ill get some sort of legal video up by next Saturday... If im still alive yo :lol:

So you said!
 
I remember when I had my windscreen replaced, as soon as I got back to the car at the garage I peeled the tape off thinking it had been forgotten about and drove home.  It was only then that I started wondering if the tape was important and perhaps I should have left it on.  Still, the screen didn't fall off when braking so all was good :D.
 
So what other hidden places around the house are car bits located now then?  Or can't you say as a certain someone isn't aware? :lol:


Ssssshhhh!
She thinks i bought a top gear styled living room set, 3 piece suite and 4 cylinder coffee table :lol:

Nah
Top of cupboards in kitchen there's a cat and some small parts, bedroom there's a passenger door card, and under the bed theirs a set of genuine Levin matt's


#332713 Ford Focus Mk2.5 Boot Badge

Posted by Lenny on 15 February 2014 - 04:17 PM

So I went and bought a boot badge just in case I mangled my existing one doing the car badge light.
Turns out I bought the mk2 badge with 3 pins on the back. Does anyone know which boot badge fits the mk2.5?

The mk2.5 badge is just a shell with sticky foam inside,
The boot handle on the mk2.5 is bubbled out to hold the tin badge shape,
If the one you bought has a flush back surface then its better for fitting to the badge light because the proper mk2.5 one is just a blistered shell and would require filling to create a smooth bondable surface to the light section


#332705 St Exhaust On 1.4 Studio

Posted by Lenny on 15 February 2014 - 03:42 PM

It is possible but the ST exhaust must be modified to fit under the wheel well. To do this you have to cut the exhaust tips and weld them back on in a different angle to fit to the bumper. Because the ST exhaust must be mounted at a lower position to fit under the wheel well the exhaust can be seen from the rear which in my opinion does not look nice.
 
 
In my opinion it would be a lot easier and better looking to make a custom stainless steel dual exhaust system.
