Topics I've Started

Badge Overlays

21 January 2013 - 05:58 PM

I don't want to walk into this procedure blindfolded like I did when I was respraying the dash, so can someone give me a rough guide or a step-by step if your really nice on what exactly I would have to do to get these overlays on...

Can they be taken off?

Bonus question - Can't seem to find a name for it, but whats the bit of aftermarket plastic you can buy that covers the top tiny slit grill(the one with the ford badge in the middle) or is it just called a bonnet lip or something?

Laugh away if you will, but will this fit on my gear stick?


Throwing Some Ideas Around

19 December 2012 - 11:52 AM

So as my car is still factory standard so far, I haven't really wanted to touch anything until I know exactly where I want it to be when I am finished.

A few ideas popping round at the moment, just small things to make the car my own if you will.#

If anyone could point me in the right direction (preferably online atm) for a couple of items I still need to find.

Where can I get myself one of those asian grills? Cant seem to find them.

Not 100% sure what I am looking for with the lights, but being a frozen white car, I want to get the back lights darker, if not blacked out so would appreciate pics with either or....even an opinion would help at this point. As for the front lights, are halogen/xenon lights all legal? and easy fittable?

Struggling to find mudflaps that will actually fit that car. Anyone know anywhere I can get some? I seen Inath has some nice ones on his.

Possible looking to get a red pinstripe around the outside of the rim of my wheels, but not 100% on how that will look yet either.

What I am hoping to get after the new year -

White headlight brows
Asian grill (if I can find one)
black with red font badge overlays
Tinted heko rain deflectors
Get the back windows tinted.
I wouldn't say better, but different headlights and brake lights.
Wrap the bottom front of the bumper in black
Still debating a carbon strip going down each side of the car.

Not huge mods but if its done right the car....to me, will look beautiful. I'll hit up performance after that.

Any suggestions/help/opinions are more than welcome. You may sway me elsewhere

Yet Another Question (Mechanical Perhaps)

26 November 2012 - 03:32 PM

Don't know if this is common or not, but obviously in these circumstances its best to get advice from owners who have a clue what their talking about.

So it's normally on a cold start this happens, but I have not taken it in yet as it has not effected the drive what so ever and only happens for a couple of minutes or so.

When I start the car on a particularly cold or wet day, when putting the clutch the whole way down and keeping it there, i am getting a quiet, but rather annoying high pitched whine coming from the engine. The noise stops as soon as its in neutral or any gear when moving, only happens when the clutch is fully down.

Is this common?If not, what could be the fault?

Worth It Or Not?

How difficult is it to make the normal key start, and change it to keyless entry and power button start?

Couple of things I'm looking to do at the minute, but double checking everything so I know which to do first and what not to do etc.
