Hi all, changed the shoes on the rear off my focus and put in all together tighten up the 10mm nut on handbrake to three clicks and its tightened up nicely but the thing is it still not holding, ive heard that to adjust to auto adjusters i have to put the car in reverse and do 15mph give or take and apply the brakes is this true or is the something else it may be???

Blue Led Power Source Mk1 Focus

18 February 2014 - 09:33 PM

HI guys and gals, just wondering where there is a 12v wire behind the passenger fuse box to tap onto with a 3amp fuse for some LED strips from maplins. part number




im gonna tap into the wire and use a 3amp or 5amp fuse, or will the stereo 12v power (red) wire be ok to do this? But in all honesty I would rather not tap into the radio power as wouldn't feel right worried it may over load it a little, but im sure it will be fine. so just want to double check cheers



12" Fiberglass Sub Box For Focus Estate Mk1

21 January 2014 - 10:20 AM

Hi all, well as it seems no one has done this sort off project im thinking to challenge it and see how it goes. I like a challenge, lol.


I'm going to make a Fiberglass box fo my 12" Kenwood W3013 1200watt (400rms) sub with a slot to mount the amp KAC-8405 aswell. I will post photo's as I go.


Stuff I will be using will be:


5 litres polyester fiberglass resin

Fiberglass matte

MDF (for supports for sub and speaker rings)

Masking Tape


Glue Gun

Fleece Fabric

Speaker terminal Cup

Carpet to match the box with the car interior


There is one concern but from all the sites ive seen where people have done this they seem not to worry about the box size for volume?


Cheers Chazz
