#459636 Kpg's Focus Mk2 Titanium

Posted by kpg on Today, 03:49 PM

Had a good week at work this week. Firstly we had an XC90 in for a full wrap from black to white:

Then yesterday, I heard the "warbling" outside and that unmistakable smell of motor oil. This pulled into the garage for some pin striping:

Awesome build thread and read through it all. Congratulations on the engagement. Love how the centre console turned out with the new headunit. 
 
Are you thinking of upgrading the sound system in the future? 
 
How comfortable is the car on the lowered springs?


Thanks dude. We're both over the moon with the engagement, can't wait to get started on the future.

The centre console was the biggest mod I think, when everything is considered. Time, pieces, sections etc. it turned out amazing, great sound over the Sony unit and the dash looks so much more interesting now.

I'm happy enough for the moment with the sound as it is, maybe some upgrades speakers at some time.

I had Apex springs on before I got the H&Rs and compared to the H&Rs they were very crashy and bumpy. The new ones lower the same roughly, maybe slightly higher on the rear but they're so much more comfortable. I drive more or less the same route to and from work so the same bumps aren't as bad anymore lol

Thanks for taking the time to read through the thread ;)

I can't remember of hand, I tried looking for the ebay listing from when I bought them but It wouldn't let me see the description as ta not available anymore.

Something's telling me it's around 54/55mm. I'll have a check off my own later tonight.

Going to get my new badges on once the rain stops.

Coolant topped up and car washed. Didn't get round to my list of things to do as I forgot about Valentine day lol

I got a chance to use my AutoGlym Perfect Wheels kit. Good job that is. Ideally I would've liked to get the wheels off and do the whole thing but didn't have enough time.

Not that you would notice much difference. Should've done a before and after:

The wheels look nice and bright in person. Happy with the results.

I'll get my interior cleaned and badges on tomorrow ;)

Right. I smelt a slight burning smell coming from the vents tonight. Only seemed to be there on hot setting on the blowers. The other day I noticed my coolant was slightly below the MIN marking. Checked tonight there as well and it's in the same place, just below. Should I be worried? Is it just a case of topping it up again with the right stuff?

Didn't mean to quote the video there lol

Things to do this weekend:

Put my new badges on
Paint Calipers green
Wash car
Clean interior
Headlight brows*

* I got some Black 3M vinyl from work the other day, going to try and make some eyebrows out of it.

Speaking of work we, potentially, have an AC Cobra coming in for a full wrap in metallic navy :D can't wait !
