Wheel Help?

16 September 2013 - 12:58 PM

Hi guys and girls,

I am having a few problems understanding offset... Can you help??

I am currently running 19" x 8.5" Focus RS Alloys with an ET of 60? with 15mm spacers.

I want a set of 20" x 9" alloys with an ET of 45... Will they fit straight on without the need for spacers??

Thanks in advance.

I've Had A Bad Day!!

01 September 2013 - 06:25 PM

So I decided to fit my spangly new Airtec Intercooler today.

 

I jacked the car up using the jacking point... only to hear creaking and a big bang. Looked under and found this!

 

 

WTF!! Not happy.
So decided to carry on anyways. Took forever to strip the old
intercooler out. Stupid ford putting the jubilee clip screw on the top
of the pipe... completely inaccessible from underneath. But I persisted
and finally got if out.

 

 

Then
offered up the Airtec to find their is no way on gods earth it will
fit. At this point I had had enough and decided to have my lunch and
come back and have a look to make sure I wasn't being a divvy! But
no...Not only is it too tall and wide, but it fouls these... (Look in the hole where you can see the ground... there is a square bit o plastic)

whatever they are??

 

Just not enough space...

 

 

 

So my favorite task... put every !Removed! thing back again. Cue cursing, scraped knuckles and thing getting thrown around!!

 

So basically my only day off in 14, and I have fitted 4 well nuts and my newly painted fog lights!

 

 

 

 

 

Not happy in the least. Have messaged John-ST3 who is going to have a look in a few weeks.

Mondeo Titanium X Sport Build Thread!

01 February 2013 - 05:40 PM

As you guys may know I have recently bought a 59 plate Mondeo Titanium X Sport 2.2 Diesel...

I never keep my cars standard for very long. This one will be no exception.

Day 1:

The key was looking a bit tired, so I got my box of carbon vinyl out and 10 mins later...

Posted Image

When I was looking for the Mondeo I saw an estate with Focus RS alloys on and thought it looked mint... so I found these...

They were a little grubby... but for £400 I cannot complain... so 5 hrs later I had these...

I have then ordered a set of H&R Spacers... the supplier ordered direct from H&R in Germany... 5 days later...

Posted Image

Posted Image

...also ordered some Eibachs, from the UK...3 weeks later... nothing!

So today I decided a good wash and de-tar was in order... also de-badged some of the rear as well...

After:

Now should I keep the Titanium X badges... or remove??

Few more de-tarred pics...

Eibach, spacers and wheels due to be fitted on the 18th. Will get some pics up ASAP.

Also looking for an aftermarket stainless exhaust... the only off the shelf one I can find is a Scorpion one for £800... seems a bit steep? Anyone know of any others??

All comments welcome.
