I've used many of there products on my focus build and i must say the build quality of all items is exceptional,
Looking forward to fitting one of these contactless chargers inside the "garage door" compartment on the mk2.5 focus looks awesome

Cheers Lenny
Everything's ordered and on the way, hopefully should all be here for the weekend. I'll get it all done and upload some pics of the finished product

Dont forget to purchase some spray on glue for applying the carpet,
Also its better if you paint the mdf with somthing first and let it dry prior to spraying on the glue it helps it bond better.


#493536 Help Needed!

Posted by Lenny on 08 June 2015 - 08:26 AM

I own a mk6 Fiesta Zetec Climate 1.4. 55 plate, silver. It's done 65,000 miles and runs like a dream. I'm looking to sell it soon to get a 3 door focus zetec s, but it has two quite noticeable dents in the back corners.
I know I can get about £1,900 for it without these dents but obviously not as much with them.
I was wondering if you think it'd be worth repairing them before selling it would it be a waste of time and money?
Thanks!

As said there no harm getting a quote,
I reckon if your selling the car privatly then its definitly worth repairing them, waxing the body, clean engine bay and rent out a rug doctor from tesco to clean the interior
See guide: http://www.fordowner...g-car-interior/
And a cheap set of car mats,
Also put some tyre shine on the spare wheel ;)

This way it appears the car has been very well looked after and sure to be a good purchase as one would assume then that you have a huge attachment to the vehicle.

However,
If trading in to a garage i wouldn't bother repairing the dents or anything because they don't even get off the chair to go out and look at your motor,
They just open a book and see what trade in value that car now has and allow you that amount off your new motor.

Or just be sensible and eat it as you drive... I mean jeez, it's not that complicated eh!

People drive when there drunk,
And
Eat kebab's when there drunk,
So why not eat a kebab while driving with no alcohol,

Would be epic to see a police camera show where a drunk driver is stopped at a check point and found under the influence while eating a big dirty kebab lmao
Im sure its been done we just havent heard.

Haha, nah its not the filming that would have had me led away, if your so lazy to park on double yellows and eat your kebab then your not going to like someone telling you that. I would have said a few things, it would have got heated and probably wouldn't have been something I walked away from...
Better safe than with a record

:lol:
Not the sort of Kebab eating video's generally saw on the internet mate top respect for that,
But ive gotta say; if i was anywhere with my family and i saw someone videoing without explanation id be taking action.

That seems expensive
Mooched on eBay and saw one for 37quid that includes a 6gb of data sim card

:lol:
There also available from the Philippines for less than 20 GBP reliability in my opinion would be a gamble however each to there own.
Link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281627156798
There might even be one listed with a free ladyboy and what would be wrong with that lol

The network card or SIM was no use to me as I'm in a different country, i requested that they remove it prior to shipping as it would be no use to me if anything the seller may make some use from it, i left it with them.
My home broadband connection is also via a SIM card based router, i transfer the sim to the car router on long journeys so there's no additional costs I'm using the same unlimited broadband connection in the car on the move as in the home same monthly bill saves me from exceeding my monthly data allowance on the mobile phone bill.

I'm an "if you want it buy it" sort of guy :lol:
so if you want it pal buy it. I've already got one and highly recommend them the cost is only another one of those "terms & conditions" there's a deal out there for everyone.

I saw the listing for mine at the time and bought it mate,
It i was to go on about the cost of things i really wouldn't have an 86 page build thread of progress or over 30 Guides on here to be honest.

Went to doctors today,
I'm on crutches and the last two available parking spaces have been taken up by a patient whom is clearly suffering from Claustrophobia

Joe
 
i've created a mount for my amp to sit on the r/h side (drivers side) in the boot as i plan to add an additional amp (main amp) and keep the vibe set us as back up as i plan to add another 12" sub in the boot. your welcome to come along and have a look at it.
i made it after reading this thread:
http://www.talkaudio.co.uk/ipb/index.php/topic/370110-ford-focus-install-for-the-mrs-system-build/ 

WoW!! Somebody got a John Adams "Real-Power-Workshop" from Santa when they were a kid man that's some tidy workmanship for sure,

3248_Real_Power_Workshop_3DBox_Left_zpss

Although it would contribute to quite a bit of rear end weight making it steer like an elephant on corners,
Saying that though the guy doesn't seem to weight conscious when carrying a full size spare wheel,
Ive ditched mine in exchange for a Mk1 focus RS polystyrene tyre well filler and AA membership :)
Save it on fuel and handling.

It would be of help I would be very appreciative - I'm going to build a mounting point of some description for my amp so will be put to use. Just had a right nightmare! Spark plugs we're sitting in water and one of them snapped off when I was un doing them. All sorted after 4 hours of messing so didn't get round to re locating wiring. Just to top it off the fella off Gumtree that said he was gonna come didn't turn up.

Im guessing you have a 1.6 Petrol engine?
Your washer jet seals on the bonnet are allowing rain water to pass through,
Its resting on your engine rocker cover and filling up the area surrounding your spark plugs mate,

Get yourself some clear silicone from local DIY store and fill under the washer jets on the bonnet to prevent this happening.

Also pm me your address and ill get the carpet shipped out to you tomorrow via standard mail,
Send 6 euro OR $104.73 Mexican Peso's via paypal to leonard.woods@live.ie
To cover shipping,
Cheers.

Haha! There is indeed! I got one of the sound engineers from work to set mine up ;)

Ledgend! B)
Ive used the Pioneer calibration mic. But was trying to further build on that,
I want to have lowest sound coming from the front speakers so everything is built up from the rear to the front

High pass filter is it plays anything above the set frequency.
Low pass filter plays anything below the set frequency.
So you've set it so anything below 50hz goes to the Sub, anything higher than 100hz goes to the front and anything higher than 200hz goes to the rear.
You'll still get all frequencies in all speakers but certain frequencies will be really attenuated in accordance with the filters

Ah sod it :lol: ive set it back to auto setting until i research it,
Too many options mate
