Thanks for the kind words. Makes it worth while when people compliment the car
No updates still I have a set of Heko wind deflectors on the way but nothing on the horizon unfortunately.
I was away racing this weekend. An average weekend I guess. Torrential rain saturday evening made it the worst night of my life.
Sunday morning the bike wouldn't run, combination of water in the electrics, very humid air so wrong carb settings made it a nightmare getting it running.
A new plug later and lots and lots of carb fettling it was running, just in time for practice.
Stock 140 Class: Heat 1 - 5th, Heat 2 - 7th (with a loose exhaust due to a sheered stud in the head, causing lack of throttle responce!) Final - 6th An ok result, and good points towards the championship, this 'should' bump me back upto 5th in the championship.
Open class: Heat 1 - 2nd, Heat 2 - 3rd, Final - 3rd, Two 3rd's in 2 rounds is fantastic, and more silverware!
Hi all, not been on the forum for a while having bought a Fiesta, sold the Focus and been mega busy at work.
Il copy this from another forum, so if the odd bit dosnt make scence... sorry!
Heres some pictures from the day I picked her up from Wales:
And one of the misses car (Soon to be replaced by a mk6.5 fez)
One of the two together:
It was a miserable cold day but we still had a bit of time to look around and drive some of the awesome roads.
Theres a few niggles that need sorting with it which will be done when money allows. But for now im saving for the insurance renewal in a few months.... (This is not going well LOL!)
First mod was a bonnet bra... the bonnet has a couple of nasty stone chips in it which I cant afford to be repaird, so for the mean time, this will cover it up and make me feel better
First time iv taken photos at night (Didnt go too well.. only 1 came out half decent) :
Painted front callipers:
DMB overlays and boot lock cover fitted
Laguna splitter fitted (Worse job ever in below 0 temp on a stone driveway!)
Worth it though
Birthday prezzy from inlaws
Soon put to use: (went mad with pics)
This is the front wing polished and bumper not polished.. you can see the difference!
I also got the gopro hero2 out for the first time in a long time (Normally use it when racing bikes, but due to work not been out for ages!)
Will be removed again in a week or so's time to flatten off the lacquer and get that mirror shine. Quite happy bearing in mind it was my first time spraying anything... and it was only rattle cans too.
Mist jets removed from the focus before I sold it happen to fit the fez so they were colour coded and fitted too!
Crimbo prezzie from the misses Cant have them till crimbo day though Cant wait!
So this is the list...
Done: Boot lock cover Put in 12v lighter socket (missing when I bought the car) Replaced passenger side headlight (damaged when bought) DMB overlays black/chrome Paint front callipers blue Colour code boot grab Colour code exterior door handles Colour code front fog light surrounds Colour coded mist washer jets Laguna front splitter Richbrook gear knob
In progress: Fit scangauge for an OEM look (Fitted, but not looking OEM yet)
To do list: Detailed clean/try remove some light scratches Leather gear gator Upgrade audio Paint brake drums black Aero wipers Mountune MRD270 remap Lower 30/40mm Richbrook aeriel Rubber floor mats Wind deflectors Colour code bump strips Paint grilles (Satin black or gloss?)
I will try keep everything up to date as much as possible. C+C welcome
Yeah, I plan to fit the lowering kit and the wheels at the same time, If not it will be the lowering kit first, which might be a good idea as I know it can take a week or two for the new springs to 'bed' in so to speak.
I had seen the steering rack limiters, I will put getting one of those off unless the wheels do rub.
Just removed the 'GB' sticker on the rear of my recently bought focus to find this hidden underneath it!
P*****d off is an understatement!
Any ideas how much this is going to cost to be put right?
Theres a small scrape on the rear bumper which I looked into getting re-sprayed which was going to cost just over £200, there is also a small scuff on bottom of the front bumper. So looking at it it may be worth a complete re-spray. If I was to go down this route what sort of money is it likley to be?
