As they're both Carb you shouldn't be needing to change the Loom. I used to own a 1.3 Fiesta but I've heard that 1.1 to 1.3 conversions are pretty straight forward. 


From another website 'Any of the CVH or Zetec range will go in. The biggest Zetec available from new in the MK3 was the 1800 in the RS and the 1600 also featured in the Ghia and java models.

So yeah, turns out it was looking right at me. I had changed one of the fuses (Which intact didn't need changing) and didn't change the other one.... All fixed I believe! 


Note: If anybody else has this problem change both fuses!  :P

So, little update on the coloured Air Vents. I've finished them! *yaaay*  ;)


So, I was going to do a step by step guide but I forgot :( So, Please see the information below on what I did (below the photos). 


I'm so proud of these, they really do have that metallic look, the same as the fezza! 








Okay, I got:

1x Grey Primer
1x colour
1x Lacquer
1x Mixture wet/dry sandpaper (260, 600, 800, 1200)
All from Halfords.
Also got some tattoo gloves as they stop the oils from your hands going on (eBay 99P for 10) 
So the order I did it in:
1. With the 260 paper sanded down the rings. 
2. Then did the 800 grit to smooth it a little bit. 
3. Washed the rings and let them dry. 
4. Hit them with a coat of light primer.
5. Waited 20 minutes (15 minutes to touch but I always wait 5 or more minutes) 
6. Hit them with a second coat of primer. 
Waited 30 minutes. 
7. Hit them with a coat of colour. (Now, I did try wet sanding with 1200 but it just took the primer off in little parts so I didn't do it) 
8. Waited 20 minutes
9. Hit them with a second coat of colour.
10. Waited 20 minutes
11. Hit them with a third and final coat of colour.
12. ***This time I waited 45 minutes before anything else****
13. Hit them with the first coat of lacquer. 
14. Waited 20 minutes
15. 2nd coat. 
16. 20 minutes.
17. 3rd coat
18. Waited an hour and a half.

I had this with my Mk3, couldn't get rid of it! It's just the way that it seems to be. Was never after a long journey, only short ones.
