#396725 "taking Oval To Blue Horizon" Lenny's Build Thread 2010-2013

Posted by Lenny on 12 August 2014 - 02:01 PM

Update:
After searching almost two years for a red Angry Birds red to hang from the rear view mirror,
I finally found one surprisingly cheap and in the form of an official Angry Birds air freshener,
Various birds available:
Red,
Black,
Yellow,
Each has its own scent, if anyone else has also been longing for one of these i can purchase and despatch if required.

#396723 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6Tdci Engine

Posted by Lenny on 12 August 2014 - 01:55 PM

Is this guide in a pdf format somewhere?
:)

Sadly not yet mate,


#396295 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6Tdci Engine

Posted by Lenny on 10 August 2014 - 11:09 PM

Aaaaaaah where's the pics?

Its the 10GB Bandwidth has been exceeded on the photobucket account caused by content from my account being download by others which is cool by me as its all there to help, but photobucket want money from those who use there servers the most, as result they want $2.99 to give me 20GB Bandwidth for 30 days,

I expect the clock to reset on 01st September unless someone wants to send me $2.99USD via PayPal and pay the fees i can then reset it immediately,
If required my address is: leonard.woods@live.ie

I am working to eliminate this issue in the future,
Most of my guides are now also available to download in PDF format which doesn't become affected by photobucket at all,
The PDF can be download and printed making it easier to have in hand when following,
The guides that currently have a PDF version carry a link on the first post.
I am currently unable to continue the Post to PDF transition because my laptop has broken thus losing access to Microsoft Word software,
I currently log on using my Android based phone.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused during image down time however its choice of timing is out of my control.

#395996 Ford Focus 1.6 Tdci Oil On Top Of Engine

Posted by Lenny on 10 August 2014 - 12:54 AM

A common fault with the 1.6TDCi is leaking injectors,
Early diagnosis is king,
Refurbished injectors available on ebay but require ford diagnostic software to get them working on your engine,
They need to be programmed to your specific ecu,
So ford only job,
Ive not yet read the thread content here just te title but thats im input on the subject :lol:


#395993 Foot Well Lights Help!!

Posted by Lenny on 10 August 2014 - 12:42 AM

Thanks Lenny.
 
The 5 LEDS pods do look well at night. the light is very evenly distributed as well.
 
I go the mats of ebay as I needed some. I liked the way it had "FOCUS" printed on it.
 
heres the link
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item256d6a72ae
 
 
Get yourself a set lol!
 
 
I like your rear seat cover Lenny. I was thinking of getting one as our kids are wee messers in the back lol!
can you get one with just "FORD" on it? since my car isnt a zetec s I think it may look a bit outta place. what ya think?

i definitely will mate they have dropped around 40 pounds since the last time i looked th3m up around three years ago,
Great price now though, roll on Thursday :)


#395990 Foot Well Lights Help!!

Posted by Lenny on 10 August 2014 - 12:17 AM

As promised some pics of my finished installation on the foot wells and ignition ring.
Big thanks to Lenny who helped me on this.
 
I would highly recommend this Mod as its very effective and looks very OEM when finished.

awaiting the birdbath materials then I'm gonna give it a try.


looks fantastic mate,
Those 5 SMD pods look much better than the 3 smd pods ive got fitted to mine,
They dont make the 3 SMD pods anymore hence why i linked the five smd model but they spread the light much better than the three,
Tempted to upgrade those now myself,
Ignition ring and front footwell's are looking great too, i like the genuine ford matts aswell.
The bird bath illumination will compliment the footwells at night too.
I especially like the way it all fades on/off in time with locking/unlocking the car or start/stopping engine.

Instead of alloys you could get some chrome paint from Dealz mask up the tyres and spray the steel rims :) Pimpin also kick in your fuel flap giving the impression that you've fitted a wide arch body kit..

Colour coding wing mirror surrounds aswell as colour coded stock rear spoiler also looks good,
Here's some pictures of a mk2 i saw before looked tidy ST front bumper, colour coded fog surrounds and TripleRcomposites front splitter,

I often agree with Lenny, apart from the 10% front tints... I know it's very subtle, but I believe it's also technically illegal - It'd be a  shame to get ticketed or forced to remove it at the roadside.. etc...

its legal over here,
Up to 25% on front doors,
Factory tint is up to maximum 15% so i got 10% added making it maximum 25% which is limit in Ireland sorry guys didnt know it was illegal over there

I don't do Photoshop but drawing the picture is the easiest thing :) figured id give some advice on your chosen list of mods instead:

Eibach lowering springs drop it 35mm and are also available through ford see fordpartsuk.com
Don't forget to purchase adjustable rear camber bolts and have the laser alignment done after lowering.

35% tint on rear windows and 10% front doors in a nice contrast,

ST front bumper would give it a more aggressive appearance aswel as lower, however if not low enough TripleRcomposites manufacture a gloss black lip designed to fit the ST bumper,

#395937 Kpg's Focus Mk2 Titanium

Posted by Lenny on 09 August 2014 - 08:37 PM

Hhaaa oh dear, silly boy !
I actually have an earful to a not so cheery chap today who didn't know how to use a merge lane, obviously he thought I was to blame.

Ah would ya not pull over to the fast lane and make room for him to pull out of the feeder lane early,
So he can show his cars so powerful it doesn't need that much runway :lol:

It's amazing how certain people are allowed to drive.
I know a woman who has the worst kind of diabetes, doesn't take medication for it, has blacked out 5 times behind the wheel and she is still allowed to drive.
The 5th I actually witnessed her crashing into 2 cars.
Class.

very true mate,
I worked with a guy called Steven,
He was stage 3 diabetic too,
daily commute to work for him was 40min each way,
He flaked out at the wheel on route home one Thursday evening straight across oncoming traffic lane and in to a hedge,
Almost killed himself and wrote off his vectra,
So did he do as he should and stop driving?
No!
He went and bought an Isuzu Cobra instead.
So if it happens again he will be safer and escape with minor injury
But lmao God help the rest of us though the big thick!
