#487900 Kpg's Focus Mk2 Titanium

Posted by kpg on 20 May 2015 - 02:24 PM

Loving the PS2 mod! Technical question: you just connected it to the "video in" and "audio in" connectors on the back of the stereo? And when you want to play, you just switch to that input on the stereo?
 
One more thing I noticed...if you remember, we were discussing the angel eye headlights in it's thread few months ago, respectively the bulbs for the angel eye rims...I remember you ordering the same as I did, but looking at your pictures few pages back here, it looks like yours shine little bit brighter...did you change the bulbs for something better? Because I did...I'm currently using LEDs with SMD5630 chips which should have the brightest output, but compared to the previous ones (SMD 5050) they look the same...(and yeah, I'm considering using angel eyes as DRLs here...)


Hi mate. Yea it's connected to the AUX IN Red, White and Yellow inputs on the rear of the unit. So when I want to play it, I plug in my power and flick the head unit to "AUX IN" and there it is.

Sometimes I think my bulbs are really bright and other days I can hardly see them, I think it depends on the daylight. I used the same bulbs I mentioned back the , the set off eBay. No problems with them at all so far. I can't remember which Kelvin rating I got, I think it must be 6000K, not sure. I've also noticed that since I added the headlight brows, it's made the inside of the headlight a bit darker so this may be why the bulbs look brighter sometimes? Just a thought.

I just realised... I've been saying I have the 50mm H&R lowering spring set but turns out I have the 40mm set? How silly.

Maybe I'll try the 50mm set ;) ?

The PS2 arrived today. Smaller than I remember lol I did a test run at lunchtime but managed to get the whole thing sorted after work.

This is where it lives:

ImageUploadedByFord OC1431368064.963392.jpg

I cut the slider/wheel/venty job at the very back if he glove box to allow the leads to pass through. Didn't get a pic though. The power cable is routed under the centre console and up under the passenger side dash trim. I have that plugged in permanently so whenever I need power I just plug in the 12v in my armrest.

I have this crappy video to show the thing working and where everything is.



I was juggling the controller and my phone so bare with me lol also the music on NFSU really is bad.

If your toying with the idea of side skirts at 180quid mate I still have the ms design body kit going
 
Sideskirts should fit straight on as they already the right colour but the front/rear lip will need spraying
 
Full bodykit for near enough the same price as a set of unprimed skirts
 
 
 
Any luck finding the link for the wheel centres yet mate?


Not yet buddy, need the laptop to delve deeper into my eBay buying history lol will try do that tonight for you.

#484428 St Stripes

Posted by kpg on 09 May 2015 - 10:33 PM

Right folks, I'm just looking to gather some interest first but as I work with a UK signage/wrapping company I can provide ST stripes for those wanting such a thing. Now I'm just testing the waters first as to how any people would be interested so if you fancy some stripes I'll compile a list of say 10 and I'll go from there. I've only just created my own stripes today substituting "ST" for "Ti" for Titanium on my own car. Pics here:

If I can get enough people interested I may start making these available to forum members only, for a price.

I apologise in advance if this is in the wrong forum or it's the wrong way of offering this service as I've never don't this sort of thing before.

Get your names on the list and let's see how it goes :-)

Cheers lads/ladettes

Looks sweet

Been toying with the idea of doing it on my mondy but not sure if it would look right on a longer car

Really need some side skirts to go with the stripes now though dude. Would finish the sides off beautifully

I really want to get those wheel centre caps as I have the same wheels

How much was they?


I got them off eBay dude. I think they were £13 for the set. Can't remember off hand. If I find the link I'll post it up here.

Skirts would be great. I've had this bookmarked for a while:

I may purchase them some day but I'm toying with the idea of coilovers at the minute.

This is from an ST:

Looks like it's aligned with the rub strips?

I'm not sure yet. The colour is great. Might take a while to get used to. I followed the line of the side strips. Maybe shoulda been done along the lower edge of the doors?
