#389130 Hyrule's Build Thread

Looks great! must get round to colour coding the bonnet strip. The gloss black plastics looks much better too. Think that would look good on a black car? I share your hatred of grey plastic haha

Great build. As a super geek, it's good to see people on here who also share my passion for PC's as well as Ford:P


#338901 Philips Blue Vision Vs Osram Cool Blue Intense

Got the Philips to replace my Osrams. They have already outlasted so for that alone I prefer them.




#334216 I Hate Car Insurance

Posted by luke.grimbley on 19 February 2014 - 09:27 PM

I was £700 paying monthly at 20 years old and 2 years NCD. Thought that wasn't too bad for a 2.0 pertol, business use, 15k a year and parked on a drive way. Especially the amount of stolen cars in Aberdeen in the past year or so.

 

That's with my Mum and my Partner as named drivers too.

 

It's all a con because it's compulsory so we all need it, they have us by the balls because there are no regulations on pricing. I think there should be official limits into what they can charge us.




#328716 My Focus Zetec Mk2.5 Project

Posted by luke.grimbley on 03 February 2014 - 12:56 PM

Yeah that's my problem. I think most of the aftermarket exhausts are designed to fir the zetec s bumper so i may need to modify and was worried how it would turn out. Taking a bit of inspiration from yours though:)

Looks good. Liking the changes you've made so far. Amazing the difference a set of wheels make:)

 

Think you've done exactly what im going for in terms of exhaust. Out of interest did you need to modify the standard bumper for the tailpipe to fit correctly? I'm looking at a Jetex system but not keen on changing bumper's, yours looks great so you've given me hope it might work:P

Looking good, works well with the colour:) how about some black paint on the rear break drums to complete the clean look?

Good to know, massive breakers near me so hopefully won't be an issue:)

Dual reverse looking good. Think i need to nip and get it done because i find reversing my foci at night without street lights is a nightmare. The standard light/bulb just don't cut it. I assume you notice a difference in visibility when backing up bud?




#312452 Focus On Fire At Paul Walker Memorial Meet

According to the local paper he's been charged relating to this. That is the local paper though haha ^_^




#312441 Focus On Fire At Paul Walker Memorial Meet

Posted by luke.grimbley on 16 December 2013 - 01:47 PM

As far I know the bottom end went and parts from the crank came through the block, letting the oil leak onto the red hot exhaust header. After that he had no chance. Even if his plea for a extinguisher was answered, the damage was long done and he would have had little chance of fighting the fire.

 

Some people can't even afford to run a car, why anyone would abuse them like this is beyond me...




#312359 Focus On Fire At Paul Walker Memorial Meet

Posted by luke.grimbley on 16 December 2013 - 11:13 AM

Gutted to know this moron lives just down the road. When I first saw the pics popping up online I thought it was an accident, rather than stupidity. Got a photo of the exhaust header glowing red before it went up in smoke. At that point he was told to stop by onlookers and told them he wanted it to go white... <_<

 

Feel sorry for TSG and all the people there with sense, there the ones getting the abuse for it. As if car meets in Aberdeenshire don't get enough bad attention as it is:(




#310346 Colour Coding

Posted by luke.grimbley on 09 December 2013 - 11:19 PM

If I do it it will be cans in the shed haha. I painted the interior parts of my old car and they came out perfect, I'm just conscience of the colours matching on the outside.

 

How much would I expect to pay a body shop to paint the parts? Been quoted £35 for a can of matched paint and i would still need to get primer, lacquer and all the other prep supplies. Might just be worth them doing it so its done right.  

 

Cheers,

 

Luke

Not had the chance to test it properly yet but I'v noticed better throttle response as well as a bit of a roar. Would recommend.
