In Topic: "taking Oval To Blue Horizon" Lenny's Build Thread 2010-2013

09 October 2014 - 03:54 PM

I am interested in your statement: "Fitted 12V socket in boot, the loom is already there in all spec focus 05-11 just require the 12v socket and an earth feed."

 

I have an 08 and looking to do the same.  Could you advise what and how please?  Extra fuses or trailing cables willy-nilly required?  (I ask because your photo pointing at an orange block connector is a little bit confusing to me)

 

Have you seen the full guide created by Lenny? Should have everything you need there - link below...

If you go to his profile page you'll get a whole list of the detailed guides he's created along the way of doing each/most of the mods that you see in this build thread - link below...

As above, heated rear seats. Pretty rare option. The switch for them was installed in the back of the centre console armrest section, above where the ashtray (or else rear entertainment control if fitted) is.

No worries mate, the bulbs you need are BA15s (aka 382 or P21W) indicator bulbs in chrome. The seller I used for mine no longer does them, but search the bay for chrome BA15s and any of those will do. Here are the cheapest one's sorted by price, they will be spot on...

I've just removed the orange lens cover in my headlights, but if you wanted to do a real neat OEM-look job you can fit clear lenses from the Mk1.5 Focus. They need a bit of cutting and modding to fit, and then glue in place. I actually have a pair lying in the shed somewhere, but I didn't have a rotary tool or the patience to do it by hand when I had my headlights split. But if you have a spare pair of headlights that you're not in a panic to get refitted, might be an idea to fit the lenses too while you've time?

Or through the seller's direct website to save the P&P/ebay fees...

I also put in silver side repeater bulbs to lose the fried egg look in my crystal repeaters, but not sure if you need them with the smoked lenses?

Not sure what to do with my grilles...sometimes I think the black looks well when I see other people's pics, then other times think I wanna leave them standard. With mine being the final facelift chrome versions too, might be too much of a contrast between chrome and black. I def want to do the lower lip though, even though I've the chrome strip on the lower grille too. Actually tried it in a gunmetal shade of plasti-dip, hoping it would match my wheels, but came out far too light and didn't look right at all, so came off pretty sharpish and really need to have a go with black.

 

Absolutely love that splitter by the way, just don't think it would last too long on some of the roads I be on! Don't even have my Eibachs in yet, lying in a box in a shed for a couple of months at this stage!

 

Cheers for the repeater info pal, already have them in my Watched Items so will get a pair ordered now I know they're decent quality.

Get those headlights de-tango'd and blackeye'd mate, will finish off that frond end perfectly! Grilles and fog surrounds sprayed a matching black might complete the colour scheme. And you ever think about doing the centre bottom lip in black too? Either wrapped or sprayed.

 

Loving the progress, giving me ideas!

 

You got a link for those repeaters by the way? Have seen a few on the bay but worried they'll either not be dark enough or else be a poor fit, so would ideally like to get ones that I know will be good!
