I actually think the standard zetec upper grille looks better than the zetec s one you know. I can't stop looking at your front end  :ph34r: (that sounds a little wrong)

Transformed! Looks spot on. Do you have a link to the bonnet lip you got off ebay. I want to colour code mine. It makes the front end look so much meaner

Pretty sure Wilco (JW1982) did it on his MK2.  As far as I know you can just swap it over. Don't quote me on that though.

Sorry to hear about thenback lenny. Been there too, I had a prolapsed disk in 2010 was laid up for 3 months hardly being able to walk for 5 mins before crippling pain, had an operation and i helped alot, but still flares up if I over do it. Another option may be to fuse the vertabrae, but you may find it gets better to a point where you can manage it ok without the need for that, you kind of used to it -knowing what sets it off etc and trying to avoid those activities or do them in moderation.

#373433 Oil Type - Full Service - 1.6 Duratec 23K

Posted by higgsy on 10 June 2014 - 08:17 PM

4 litres was the perfect amount for my focus when I changed it, didn't even need to open the extra litre I had bought. Official dry capacity of the 1.6 is 4.1 litres. I would always go for an oil that meets ford specs and fully synthetic, for example I used petronas syntium FR, which is specifically for Fords. I wouldn't us engine flush as karlos says.

Serves them right in my opinion. No sympathy for people who park on double yellows as they are usually obstructing something.

#365279 Rear Drum Brakes Seized.

Posted by higgsy on 18 May 2014 - 09:00 AM

Mine did it a few times and my corsa also did it too. Just drop the clutch and it goes bang and frees it up. To be honest it happens a little every time I have washed the car but sometime it seems the shoes have proper welded to the drum.

#364260 Pattern On Sony Stereo

Posted by higgsy on 14 May 2014 - 12:30 PM

My heated windscreen buttons and stereo surround had something similar when I got mine managed to get rid of most of it by using waterless wash/wax spay but you can still see it a bit on heated windscreen buttons. My take on it is someone has used some kind of cleaner which has damaged/stained the finish.

Look good Gary. But please mate get rid of that dealer sticker in the back window - they ruin the look!
