#314301 Window Tinting

Posted by Lenny on 23 December 2013 - 10:02 AM

Limo is 95% or 5% clear depending which way you look at it. No good for reversing at night as you cant see a thing if there are no street lights.

I had limo tint in my first car 1997 1.3 3door starlet,
Was very difficult to see out of it day & night

#314194 Detatched Wing Mirror Lens

Posted by Lenny on 22 December 2013 - 06:52 PM

Hi, Just been out and had another look the mirror lens it is still attached to the 'hub'.  It is the hub assembly which has broken away from the molding, the anchoring point clips are broken.  So I guess it is a new assembly. Where is the best place to get a new one from without paying Ford silly prices. Fiesta 2008 model - Mirror molding is black not painted.
Thanks for your help.


#313708 New Rules On Dpf Removal Starting Feb 2014

Posted by Lenny on 20 December 2013 - 04:54 PM

Lenny what are you going to do about the tailpipe emission checks that might come in though?

Ive blanked the egr,
And I've got a 2.5" cat back duplex exhaust, more air mix with the fumes coming from two pipes instead of one,
So my emissions will be 50% less than a 1.7" single exit

#313585 New Rules On Dpf Removal Starting Feb 2014

Posted by Lenny on 20 December 2013 - 08:27 AM

This is the exact purpose of the test dude. It eliminates straight pipe system that you are sugggesting, for the dpf to pass a visual test it must have something to be "seen" a straight pipe will not have a dummy dpf to visually inspect and on the mk2.5 there is enough room to visually inspect the dpf although it cannot be reached without removal of parts due to it's locationNot only that a straight pipe would fail also for not having a silencer its required to have at least 2 boxes, cat, and silencer plus dpf for diesels. I think you need to think this through, your car wont be on the fence it will be 100% un road worthyPlus regarding the heavy mods done not decleared you might aswell say good bye to your licence and I'm not having ago just sharing info...Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app

The modern diesel with DPF has the catylist and dpf inside the same chamber,
Dpf is the top section of the chamber and the cat is separated by a 1" space inside the chamber.

Standard 1.6TDCi exhaust on a 2010 dpf fitted DV6 engine is like this: two boxes ceramic dpf and rear silencer

Ceramic dpfs don't have regeneration software onboard,
They can't force regenerate,
Their design is to gather heat from the passing exhaust fumes, heating the ceramic coating up to temperature thus constantly burning at temperatures up to 900 degrees under full throttle on motorway runs exceeding 40 minutes.

Regarding dpf removal,
Find a place that removes the internals ;)
Has my dpf been removed?


Doesn't look like it,
But that chamber only contains a catylist section
Being a self sealed ceramic, there's no eloys fluid or ignition to force regenerate, so there's nothing for them to possibly check except visual inspection.
My MOT is due in march 2014 I cant wait :) I know its not in there but they dont

Funny today,
I got home from work at 07:15am
Fed up filling a 5ltr can with petrol and pouring it in to the Levin in the driveway,
I purchased a bottle of redex on the way home from work,
Got home, picked up the empty 5ltr can and put half the redex bottle in to it,
Put the 5ltr bottle inside the levin and took the Levin out for petrol,

Short trip on back road up to the local reliable source of good fuel.
I got there and filled the 5ltr can containing redex,
I then poured the 5ltr mixture in to the levins 50ltr fuel tank.

Strange sight I was.
Standing in a fuel station next to a fuel pump,
Pouring a jerry can in to the car :lol:

While pouring it in to the Levin,
The shop owner came out to see what I was doing,
When he saw it was me he said "ah sorry, its only you,, when I saw the car, I thought it was someone dodgey only one seat inside and tricking with a fuel can... no tax disc on display or anything.....

I began to laugh and explained that I was mixing up some fuel additive in the can prior to adding to the main tank and filling it up,
Straight away I then began to think vickis opinion of the Levin is spreading.

But I got it filled to the brim with redex mixed in, quick check of the VTEC on the way home then swiftly back in the driveway now until February, no more messing with lots of 5ltr runs to the fuel station.

I also purchased a set of these from New Zealand mate,
For along the bottom of the rear side windows

#313039 What Have You Bought Your Ford For Christmas

Posted by Lenny on 18 December 2013 - 09:33 AM

just spent about £60 on autoglym and £15 on some new megz polish to try :D ...just getting a few other bits when im bored though!! :P

  60 pounds! Your crazy mate, I admire your attention to detail though,
Look forward to seeing some pictures of the results, that a lot of hard earned spent on protecting the shell

Along with my numberplate surrounds I have now got a set of new plates so no drill holes will be left also a set of MIchelin Stealth front wipers as the Ford ones wear out too quickly and smear like beggars.

  ive recently saw the Michelin stealth wipers on ebay, how would you rate them compared to bosh ? Are the michelin worth the extra spend?
And i like the idea of no number plate screws visible but id be afraid som beggar would steal my reg plate from the holder.

It must be the geriatric boy racer in me, i've ordered some LED bulbs to replace the interior lights and map lights. I wonder if they'll make the car faster?  :rolleyes:

 they surley will mate, and when your crusing through town on a saturday night in convoy with your saxo and corsa mates, the high street honeys walking the street will be able to admire your burberry baseball cap resting on your head at 45 degrees due to the excellent 6000kelven light being emitted from your upgrade led bulbs.
On a more serious note though, they are a great upgrade,
I also recommend fitting a 3 light unit from the front in to the rear surround, gives the rear passengers map lights aswell and is a straight swap. IMG_20130728_195342_zps27a3a900.jpg


Iv also bought a new Facia plate and wiring harmed for my pioneer single din car radio attachicon.gifImageUploadedByFord OC1387329084.639254.jpgSent from my iPhone 5

nice stereo upgrade,
Pioneer are a great manufacturer of car audio,
If got the 2006 model of that stereo in my levin, looks much the same but I've no got the USB port and mine lights up red, great sound and I'm sure they have only gotten better.

#312800 Would You Shop A Drink-Driver For 1000?

Posted by Lenny on 17 December 2013 - 03:09 PM

What everyone must remember is that driving is a privillege not a right

Took me 6 years to get my full licence
Others get it too easy at an early age and don't look after it,
My brother was caught drink driving twice and lost his licence the second time,

I know another guy who drink drives then goes to work the following monday and boasts about it to his work mates....
Thinks he's invincible because his family member is a copper.
Driving under the influence is to say the least irresponsible and taking risk,
If I was his employer, I would sack him because coming to work boasting about drink driving at the weekend thinking hes "cool" shows that the guy takes pride in taking risks and chances,
So what sort of an employee is he to have in the work place?
In my opinion he is a liabilitie in the work place because he prides himself in narrow escapes and chances

would love footwell lights

 you can retro fit the factory footwell lighting aswell as rear footwell lighting, click on my avator picture to view my profile then click on the link for footwell lighting guide.  

The fiesta is getting a nice shiny new subwoofer for the boot - that's if it will it in ;)If I can I'll treat it to yet another polish.Sent using Ford OC mobile app

Should fit no problem,
I had a 1.3 1997 hatch back starlet once,
I put a 15" fusion sub box in the boot along with two 6.5"
Put some 6x9's in the parcel shelf
But had to make some half inch rings to sit between the 6x9's and the parcel shelf to raise there magnets up out of the boot space as they were hitting the sub box :lol:
Was impossible to drive at full volume
