#415142 Tax Disc No More

Posted by L666JER on 30 September 2014 - 08:24 PM

I'm gonna put my 1995 tax disk (first one) in on my mk3 fiesta - that will confuse people, if the car ever comes out of the garage :P

Haven't had much luck lately have you.


But it obviously wasn't the corsas fault - they do have steering column issues you know :P

#413540 Mk3 Escort - 5 Door Ghia Build Thread

Posted by L666JER on 25 September 2014 - 10:26 PM

This is probably one of the most thorough and detailed build threads I've seen. Brilliant read.

Heard that polybushes completely transform the ride. When is this looking to be on the road?

Wonder when she will be creating her new guides?

Do what I do.... :). Drop it down and floor it to leave them standing :)


So that's how you managed to do over 60 in a 30 zone :P Sorry, couldn't resist.


That's what I (try to) do, but they usually catch me up :(

Looks fit for the bin to me.

Right, this will be the last update on the mk3 for the foreseeable future. Likely to be pretty much off the road for the next few years anyway.


Finally got round to doing the mudflaps, now I know a lot don't like mudflaps, but I wanted them for their practical use as much as their, IMO, cosmetic enhancement. Hence why I got extra wide ones for an XR2i :P In one of the pictures you can see that I have also moved the tailpipe even further into the bumper, looks nice and discrete, but noticable at the same time.

Couple of months ago I got a set (5) of XR2i/ghia alloy wheels, these were an option on my LX (that wasn't ticked) so I don't mind putting them on. Unfortunately, due to other commitments (another fiesta) these will have to wait to be refurbed, but I've got them now and they will only go up in value :D

Also the Pioneer stereo has gone and has been replaced by an original for one, which actually sounds better, and it's a tape player, just shows that some of this modern stuff is hopeless. Especially when the Ford stereo is hooked up to my Rockford amp :P
So this is the end for now, over the past two years I have worked very hard to bring the car back to pretty much showroom condition (not that it really needed it) and with a few subtle modifications. And by garaging it now I hope I can keep it in such good condition. Looking forward to taking it to a few shows in a few years (just need a car trailer to take it there to preserve the mileage :D

It's home for the foreseeable future, with a cover over it as well - of course.



#371157 Flushing Oil

Posted by L666JER on 04 June 2014 - 02:33 PM

I wouldn't flush an old engine, having a bit of crap in there can help stop leaks etc. 

I think it's far better to do regular oil changes with top quality oil.

It's always been 10 minutes fast, at least ever since I joined :)

#370477 Personal Service Records??

Posted by L666JER on 02 June 2014 - 12:50 PM

I've got every receipt for everything I have bought/had done to the car since I bought it (2 years ago). When I say everything, I mean everything, bulbs, coolant, filters, speakers, paint, belts, tyres and the thing that the break down man gives you to sign. Even got every receipt for every tank of fuel I have put in - all from the same place. Sad I know. Also got a spreadsheet going of how much I've spent and the date I bought each item :)

Got every tax disc from when it was new in a frame - very sad.


Keeps me happy though :P

#365513 Mk5 Fiesta Brakes, Are They Terrible In General?

Posted by L666JER on 18 May 2014 - 10:14 PM

Bleeding the brakes would be the first place to start. I had a spongy brake pedal on my mk3 and bleeding sorted it.

The 'cavalier' that the guy cuts up looks remarkably like a vectra.

He was not, he merely suggested that the car should not be doing that. If you take the time to read his other 2245 posts you will know he is pretty clued up and car performance and modification. I rather think he was trying to help you. FOCA - please correct me if I am wrong.
