I've fitted one in the boot light too! 10x better than before
I've got a facelift bumper in the shed.. Smoothing the plate recess! I've then got some LED fogs and a debadged grill to fit :)
I would remove the rear wiper but it would drive me crazy having a stalk yo activate it and it doing nothing. To remove on the fiesta you just remove the plastic boot trim, remove the wiper from the outside using a socket, then after removing the motor wack a grommet in it

Sounds great look forward to watching progress mate,

My filter should be here soon from the link above Lenny, also which wipes are the Matt finish Armor All dashboard wipes ones. There are many different types and the result you have looks top notch

Thanks mate,
There an orange packet with a green tab says Matt finish
I think its a red tab on the gloss finish packet,
This is the pack on the left in image from Halfords available in Tesco and fuel stations aswell.

It's pretty much in the sidewall!! Took it to a family friend tonight and it's basically knackered :(

Having read this last nite i thouhht id hop outside to check the tyres on my focus,
Rears fitted in March are fine,
Fronts fitted last September are almost down to the rubber bridge on the channel so July will be an expensive month for me aswell and i haven't even been driving it since mid May vicki's been putting it down :rolleyes:

#498131 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6Tdci Engine Pdf

Posted by Lenny on 24 June 2015 - 08:57 PM

I've got the car back today, I took it to a Diesel specialist and they diagnosed the third EGR valve to be faulty, they suggested fitting a genuine ford EGR and it seems to have done the trick, they did say they've removed quite a few pattern EGR's several made by Lucas, which is what mine were. So after three attempts even fitting a blanking plate, (now removed) the car seems fine. Thanks for all the suggestion's pity they didn't work as they were much cheaper than the final bill!
Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

Glad to hear youve gotten it sorted mate,
Id still keep it blanked after all done.
This reminds me; didnt james May crack a joke about the electrical automotive part manufacturer "Lucas" in the last one hour special of TopGear there said to be brutal manufactures anyway.
Heres a list: http://www4.ncsu.edu...ris/index3.html

I always thought your focus was a petrol mate haha!

Who ever said that Diesel couldnt look sexy :lol:
Looks like a performance petrol but unlike a performance petrol it can be taken on tour :)

How come you didnt fit them to your focus too?

Assuming your serious on the question ill respond;

My focus is a Diesel.
Uses Glow Plugs instead of spark plugs,
The glow plugs just get red hot like a poker and stay that way theres no real improvements to be made.

Spark plugs flash on and off,
The more conductive they are, the more responsive the engine give or take a few bhp and efficency.

Blimey Lenny that was a massively unlucky fall. Such is life.
My my a magazine interview! ! You're gonna be world famous lol.

:lol: That's "Reality HD" 
I was surprised being asked to do an interview, I've used a lot of Connects2 great products on my build thread and in my guides,
I research everything before i buy it and in my guides i explain why this particular brand and model is best for fitting in my opinion,
And I give legitimate independent experienced advise.
Its great to see that there is a radar out there picking up on forum enthusiasts.
I never set out to be somebody someday nor do i aspire to be lol, my goal remains the same as always; to encourage and assist others in carrying out and completing various modifications on there car themselves,
Saving themselves a lot of money in the long run,
Success for me is reaching out and helping others to achieve desired goals by themselves rather than filling someone else's pocket to achieve results.


I recently joined Twitter in March of this year,
There i met some company's of which i had used there products,
I shared my guides aswell as reviews with the company's and things sort of escalated from there :)

Gonna be?
Our Lenny IS already world famous

Cheers Sal,
I've never ventured out of Ireland in my life to date never been on a boat or plane,
but I've reached out to people across the globe via forums, Guides and solution ideas according to feedback i receive via emails of thanks.

Also check out this new product from Connects2:
This is somthing i plan to fit in the future.

The uv light idea sounds ace I'll be interested to see how it works.
I wasn't going to upload the pics until it was fully done but the new led plate I have ordered is going to be here for another week. Thanks for all your help with the mini build - it wouldn't of turned our half descent without all the help. For the first "proper" diy setup I have ever done I'm very happy with it.

Looks excellent mate,
Glad to see the carpet being put to good use aswell,
The red caps used as spacers give a nice contrast to the black and match the RCA cable plugs nicely.
A grill on the sub would finish it nicely,

Regarding the UV black light; i wont be doing anything with mine for a while,
Recent accident in May has set me back in motion a lot and I'm still discovering the consequences of the impact,
In and out of many hospitals up and down the country running up miles on the car and the missus having to drive everywhere but still not much better.
Will hopfully know by weekend if operation is required as scan showed large amount bone marrow on leg/hip joint aswell as fractured socket which extends to to of pelvis/hip.
Been modding cars on Gran-Turismo 4 recently that's about all lol

UV light? What you running some sort of money laundering program now Lenny!!!

lol pimpin's back yo!
its a small modification that provides a range of uses, thought it would be ideal for displaying the JL Audio logo when parked in underground or multi story car park :)
Ow and it was mentioned on this thread about the roof lining and whats behind it well here's an image of what lies behind the headlining of the focus, i ment to post it up before now,


The washer hose for rear window is glued along the drivers side of the roof lining,
Needs to be unplugged from both ends prior to removing boot panels to slide out the roof lining panel

The roof lining panel is fibreglass bass construction with an overall depth of 19mm including the carpet surface.
