Been all quiet on the build front for awhile but few updates.

 

Had a muppet in a Prius taxi open the rear door without looking the other week. Took my passenger wing mirror clean off, the S badge and left a small dent/scratch on the panel work.  :angry:

And here's the damage to the taxi:

Taxi driver was very apologetic as not really his fault but stupid passenger. He didn't want to go through insurers so he gave me £200 after a bit of arm twisting. Bought a replacement mirror and S badge on ebay for £40  :D . Dent wasn't as bad as it initially looked, will get that sorted when I get the other odd marks etc sorted when my build is complete.

 

Had my brake pads and discs replaced as well, thanks to Mixmasterlooney for the heads up on the half price deal, pads and discs for £85. Took the opportunity to get the front calipers and rear drums painted:

#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:

I thought you had done that mod already Lenny?

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

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/381102500641

 

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/

 

For any interested Finis no is: 1538478

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. ;)
