And there's more!

 

So these came today... Wing Mirror Rain Guards....

And they are already fitted!

And now because of the number of stone chips on them, the fog light covers have come off again for a new lease of life with paint. Not just that, but to go with the yellow HID fogs, I've got some yellow tint to lay over the actual fog light!

I like the LED strips in the boot... What did you wire them into? Did you just take the power from the original boot light?


Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

 Wired across to a 501 adapter which just plugs into the original bulb part. That way i could just convert back when I want to.

OK so this may be a fairly big update but since the last multiple things have happened. 

 

Firstly I had a locking stud nut break on me so I had to try get that removed. Tried metal putty and various other things. In the end all I needed was a torque wrench and something to keep it stable. So managed to get that replaced.

 

Before:

Then I managed to get a broken wheel stud. Funnily enough happened on the same !Removed! wheel. Managed to get this replaced with slightly longer studs in prep for what comes up later. You can see the difference between a normal size stud and the broken one that I had.

Next came the CP Lower Engine Mount which meant a lot less wheel hopping. Quite possibly the best mod I ever did. It reduced the amount wheel spin dramatically allowing me to get the power down quicker.

Next came a new exhaust custom fabricated by Powerflow with a turn down style tip to keep the OEM look. Unfortunately, this melted the back bumper slightly. Got the exhaust back box replaced and now that runs sweetly. Never did manage to get any photos of this as phone broke and all photos are on there.

 

And then I had got hold of a pair of rear facelift tinted lights and OFC, they got fitted immediately. Still not sure on these though.

Then the big one. New wheels. RS Replica's in 18" with fresh rubber. Went for Kumho Ecsta 215/35/R18. Looks perfect on the ride. Just need lows (before all you say it). Gave it a protective coating of GTechniq C5 Wheel Armour and gave the tyre's a couple of licks of Meguiar's Tyre Gel.

 

The Wheels:

Then came a small photo shoot after a good full detail of the car including the engine bay.

And then there was FITP (Including Flumpy's Focus):

After FITP, I then managed to get hold of the ecoboost engine cover and that's now been fitted.

Also, after fiddling with the interior light again, managed to lose the middle switch down the pointless handbrake hole. This got replaced and all bulbs swapped over.
