Rough Paint After Respray.

22 July 2014 - 07:40 PM

I resprayed my rear bumper today after the Mrs had a fight with a bollard.

The paint has fully dried and is now feeling really rough.

Is there anything I can do to get the glass like finish?

The process I used was.

Wet and dry sanded it with 2500 grit.
Let it dry.
Paint prep wipes.
Primer x3 coats.
Paint x3 coats

I never got round to the laquer as time ran out.

Any tips to get the smooth finish back would be wonderful.

Ford Focus Driveshaft Replacement

21 July 2014 - 01:00 PM

I need to replace my driveshaft on the passenger side because the cv joint is knocking,



Is there anything I need to look out for when changing this?



Also am I likely to loose a lot of gearbox oil?



If so would I benefit from changing the oil at this stage or would you just say a top up?



Does anyone know where is best to get gearbox oil and what grade do I need?

Focus Engine Cover

08 July 2014 - 11:45 AM

I received some paint from lenny to tart up my engine cover some time back.

I finally got round to getting it done only to realise my car hasn't got an engine cover.

Does anyone know if I can get one? Any links? It's a focus mk2.5 1.6 petrol.
