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.

Do I see a new gearstick gaiter as well? Leather instead of the old rubber one?


Oooo yes! 


I forgot that as well!

So! Since October, I've been busy, working on the car, also focusing on Work, looking for new jobs etc. SO heres but update on the Fiesta. 


Right, as you can see from the post above I added my Blue interior LED's. 


First thing I did was got my Private plates on the Fezza :D I'd been sat looking at these for a long long time and finally had the funds to buy them :) As the Surname is 'Sammut' I came up with the 'S19 MUT' Which I treated to myself as an early (about 4 months) birthday present for my 19th  :D  I feel the 19 looks like an A as well, so ye :) 


Second thing I added was Gel Overlays from DMB, now as you lot probably know these guys are brilliant, work quality, customer service and everything is amazing, would recommend! So I added the Blue on white Gel overlays, love them so much! 




Next thing I did was purchase a K&N Air Filter, now I went for the conventional Panel filter, didn't fancy going for the 57i Cone filter as the money difference compared to the Panel filter was crazy! I also thought that although the car will sound nice the money just wasn't worth it. So the Panel filter is in  :) 2MPG Extra I found! Not bad! 


Next was the de-badge! Got fed up for the 'Fiesta' & 'Zetec' Badges, I figured that after playing with photoshop the car would look better imo! So, here it was as it stood Christmas time! (Notice the FOC sticker in the back as well ;)) Later I also took out the dealer sticker from the window. 





Okay! So, Into 2014! 'New Year, new me' Facebook Statuses etc, however, not for me! New year, new mods!  :lol:


So, I finally bit the bullet. 


I went for the Fiesta ST Seats that I've wanted for AGES! Pretty mint condition, was 35 minutes drive from me and for £260 I couldn't say no! 


So, grabbed the Merc sprinter from work and away I went with a good friend of mine. Two hours laters I had my Fiesta ST seats. First thing I did was get up early on the Sunday and went to get some VAX cleaning gel, as the person I bought it from has smoked the seats smelt a little bit! 


So after two hours, my ST seats were clean and looking mint! 







Last thing I've done is wind deflectors! Two front ones, not yet put the back ones on! 


So, that's the Fezza atm.


I'm currently in the middle of painting the interior vents etc. Today I took them off, sanded and prepped them! 






Will keep you all updated!  :D
