Wheel Trim Referb

29 March 2009 - 07:41 PM

Hi All!

I have new alloys on my car now but i have decided i will refurbish my old ones to sell on. I went out and bought some paints etc to referb it. Here is the wheel with just the plastic primer on it
Posted Image
I have metallic silver paint, black paint and blue paint that is a similar colour to the blue on the ford logo.
Now i have a few ideas:
All involve painting the rest of the wheel matallic silver.
1) Just paint the logo blue and make the grooves making the ford logo silver
2) Do the same as 1) but also paint inside the circle blue
3) Do the same as 1) but paint the 6 rectanges next to the holes black
4) Paint the grooves that make up the word ford blue with/without the black
Any other ideas are welcome =)

Wierd Noise coming from front of the car

Hey all

I had a little glancing blow with a wall a little while back, didn't do much visible damage (a few scratchs and a slight dent to the wing) but every since there has been a strange whuring noise when i drive it about 50mph. It's rhythmic in the sense it gets louder and quieter at a continous rate.
I reckon its something to do with the drive shaft, i may have knocked it, but i don't know how this would cause this noise.
Any ideas what could be the problem and how i could go about fixing it.

Black Racing Stripes

23 March 2009 - 03:28 PM

Hey All =)

I have a Colorado Red Fiesta LX (as shown in my picture) I was considering white racing stripes but i've been doing some thinking and thought since the trim is black and the white and black would clash, maybe black stripes would be better. I'm thinking just the 2 up the centre would be sufficent the side ones would be a waste of time.
What do you guys think? If you are haters of racing stripes try not to waste my time lol.
If anyone has a picture of a fiesta with black racing stripes please post it.
Thanks agains guys

ST Stripes

02 March 2009 - 09:14 PM

I'm thinking of buying some Vinyl Stripes to put on my MK6 Fiesta and i know that 200mm strips up the middle will be ok, but i have been on ebay and there is one that sells 33mm stripes and one that sells 40mm stripes and i was wondering what the actual width of the side stripes on an ST are.
Post if you know =)

EAC Fail?

13 October 2008 - 08:25 AM

I got into my Car yesterday and put the key in the ignition, turned the car on and rather than the time and milage on the display, it has the words EAC Fail instead.
I turned it off again and then started a second time and everything seemed to be fine again, and i went out in it.
I looked in the manual but i couldnt see it in there.
Does anyone know what this means, and if so, if i have a reason to be concerned.
It would be much appriciated
Thanks :)
