#443476 Interior Trim Colour.....

Posted by Hyrule on 10 January 2015 - 02:08 PM

Haha, go with what you like mate. Tbh I wanted to spray mine but couldn't be bothered once I took the console bits off. Would have been one day for primer, one day for paint, one day for lacquer, and didn't fancy driving around with the console off. Not to mention all the gunk underneath.  ^_^

Gonna spray it gloss black to match lower grille and DRL's then fit, preferably without breaking the bonnet lock ;)

Here you go John


Can't remember for the life of me the link on ebay for the strips but these are essentially the same thing. http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2c74a186cb


They are wired into the interior lighting via my illuminated scuff plates, so come on when the door/boot is opened. 


And here's a load of photos for you of the centre console:

Bought some new reg plate light holders as my current ones are very tatty and falling apart.




Also bought this spring clamp mount to try on the rear mobius. Grips like a mutha, so should hopefully sort stability issues. 




and finally grabbed an ST Upper Grille (honeycomb) design for £30 via http://www.finisfinder.com/

Finally got round to finishing my guide on installing the rear mobius, so hopefully will help others considering doing it.


Here's some shots of the camera installed. As mentioned in the guide its quick n dirty, some video stability issues as its stuck to the roof lining, but overall gets the job done. 


I'm experimenting with different mounts at the moment. More to come on that.

Hello Hyrule, I'm enjoying your thread. My car is a 56 plate in sea grey and I have got a few scuffs like you had.
How did you get on with the spray cans?


Hi David, glad you are enjoying my build thread. I've still got the odd scuffs/dents on my Focus, it will be the last thing I take of after I finish modding completely. I've used the Ford official spray cans, to colour code my bonnet lip and a few other bits. But for any major body work, I'd get it done professionally. ;)

Haven't had a chance to do any mods in awhile but finally got round to fitting a rear mobius. Writing up a guide for anyone interested, and pics to follow. 

Here's a nightime test, on the way back from the gym.

#424363 Mobius Dashcam - Pedestrian Sigh.....

Posted by Hyrule on 31 October 2014 - 11:33 AM

Guys on the matter of dash cams,
Has anyone got a link to a reliable TF card,
Preferably 32Gb ive heard about false gb sized cards on eBay that dont work well,

And these dash cams,
Do they automatically start recording each time the engine is started or do you need to press record each time?


Just some history so people don't get confused TF = Transflash which then became known as MicroSD  ;)


This is the 32gb card I use in my mobius Lenny http://www.ebay.co.u...0071137&afsrc=1

Works fine without fault. There have been some instances of fake cards or incompatible cards where u can record say a few videos then the rest are unplayable. But several months of using this one without issue.

The mobius thanks to Kurts excellent guide can be hardwired into the car so it starts recording as soon as the ignition is turned on. You can also configure the mobius to record when it detects motion (running on battery power) though I haven't extensively tested that.


Highly recommended though. I've ordered a 2nd one for the rear of my Focus
