#447989 "taking Oval To Blue Horizon" Lenny's Build Thread 2010-2015

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.

Just saw these Lenny and I think they are a bargain at that price. I have the exact same. Not sure if you would be tempted :)
Focal 165 KR used

Perhaps post it on his thread as he was discussing rear door speakers with you the other day,

Thanks anyway.

Well I've had my car left in a local garage from this morning for a preMOT inspection and rear camber alignment. Now he rang me and said the rear cambers sorted but didn't need the bolts I provided. What do you think he has done? I'll not get the car back Til tomorrow as I'm getting new pads and discs on the front and need two rear wishbones so I'll not get a look at it til then.
For the inspection, headlight alignment, 4 wheel laser alignment, pads + discs and rear wishbones plus fitting it's costing me £290.
Does that seem a good enough price to you ?
I got this boy off ebay:

Might try and wire it in on Sunday when I've got my car back and a bit of time on my hands.

Thats a good price mate,
Ford quoted me 220.00 then tried to charge me 290.00 euro just to fit four springs and camber bolts,
Baring in mind i had previously purchased the parts online and brought to them for fitting that was 290.00 labor :)

Whereabouts are you putting the camera?

Only two options to be fair by the looks of it mate :)
Replacing left or right reg plate light unit.

I just want an exhaust cut out for a loud exhaust when I want it, and stock when I don't. Not bothered what form it comes in aslong as I get one! Haha :)
Look on YouTube "fiesta mk6 exhaust cut out"
The difference in sound is mad. On the verge of being overdubbed!
Must admit, I looked at the variable silencers but they're so much more expensive & I can't find the parts on their own to convert the factory silencer :(
That's why I started looking at the simple cut out pieces to put just before the silencer much much
cheaper :)
Aaah.. The much loved Random cat! ;)

Well i did try :lol:
The wastegate will back fire when you lay off the throttle as its pre-cat exit.
Good laugh for a couple of weeks after that youll find yourself dropping gears to get a break from the continous mono drone from the engine lol

Aw don't be telling me that. I don't want to raise the car up, it's perfect the way it is! I know one of the bolts on each side has to be cut/grounded off possibly for the new camber bolts to be fitted.
Sent from my iPhone 5s.

+1 thats how ford managed to take seven hours to lower my focus and fit the camber bolts,
He needed a hot work permit from his manager to get the grinder out and cut off th3 fixed camber bolts,
Think he may have then had to drill it a little bigger cant fully remember but all easy done in the capable hands of a mechanic.

The headunits looking great,
If considering a reverse camera i highly recommend the model specific ones from Connects2

Thanks mate!
I' bypassed the Capacitor last night and the problem's gone so I'll leave it like this for now!
What's people's opinions on this http://pages.ebay.co...id=170942411158
It's on my shopping list as well as a few other top secret items ;) haha.. I'm still on the wall at the minute though

It_ nice but a bit pricey for what it is mate,
Ive saw Focus ST spoilers from ford sell new for 120GBP try searching for a pre-owned ZetecS spoiler may be cheaper,
Check out the range of Mk6 stock at european-parts a ford shop dedicated to enthusiasts see link:
http://www.european-...3iu7848oqo1opr0

I like these though: http://www.ebay.com/...le/271598621841
I like em alot :) the blue led on top reg plate is not attached to the reg surround,
The blue led fits inside dash to indicate to you that your reg is hidden.

Looking good mate,
Ive done my diffuser section in peugeot Graphite Grey. Goes nicely with the moondust silver,
I picked up a can in halfords and presented it to the body shop.

Are they based in the UK or Ireland Lenny?.. Just asking for postage etc
I'll have a read of the eBay link you've posted in a second! If I crimped it with a hammer (id probably stop myself from driving for a week.. I'd get pi55ed off when it wasn't crimping properly and smack it as hard as possible & crimp my fingers! But I might give it a go! :) )

There both in the UK mate,
I use parcel motel to ship from uk aswell so if you decide you dont want the 1 fared cap ill give you an address in the uk to ship it to.
Catch the crimp in two slips of wood and hammer the wood,
This will give an even smooth finish.
