Diy Alloy Wheel Refurbishmnet

19 August 2013 - 03:04 PM

Right I said I'd set up a project log of me refurbishing a set of alloys which I got. I got all 4 alloys, centre caps and the lug nuts all for a 100 Euro,Therse are genuine 16" Fird Alloys which came off a Mondeo.

 

Here are the condition of the wheels as I got them When I removed the tyres.

First step last saturday was to remove all the laquer and top coat form the alloys so that entailed going sandblasting them and here is the result.

What Are These Wires?

Hi all,

 

I was removing the lower part under the radio facia last night (where the rear windcreen heater button is) and i came across a loom that was pluged into a blank on it. Does anyone know what its for?

 

Here is the picture of it

Thanks


Diy Window Tinting

19 June 2013 - 02:15 PM

Hi all,

 

Has anyone attempted to tint their own windows? If so have you used pre cut tint or did you buy the rolls to give it a proper tint? How hard or easy a job is it and what has the final outcome been?

 

Seriously thinking of doing mine and was just wondering which is the best for tinting as i have found this

Help would be greatly appreciated lads.


Dpf Additive

10 June 2013 - 09:46 AM

Hello Lads,

 

There may be another thread on the forums about this but cannot seem to find it. The "Engine System Fault" reading and red light are on the dash. I got it plugged in a few weeks ago and the mechanic told me that the additive in the DPF resivuoir needs to be filled. I have been told that alot of the Irish cars do not have this, but mine was improted from the UK and does have it. I have been onto a local dealer here and they have quoted me €405 to get the whole lot done. I think this is a bit steep for what is need. Has anyone on here tried doing it of have known anyone that would have done it that might have info on it. I priced the stuff from local Volvo and Peugeot garages and is cheaper than the Ford dealers which is crazy.
