Hi all

Im sure i have probably started a thread in regards to me car but i cant find it sorry.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

My friend has been given two subs for the car and is nice enough to be passing one in my direction this evening sometime.

we both would like to wire them up at the same time but im not sure if this is easy to carry out or not.

Any one have any ideas?

Also i was thinking to take off the focus and titanium badges on my car but would like to know if people have done it before or if it is thought to be a good idea?

Nice so far. That sub looks beastly.lol

Check out Brigante's build thread. He has done some great mods to his MK2.

Gel overlays for your Ford Badges can be found here. Get them before they stop selling them in June:

Gaitors eBay is the best place to find those and pretty much anything else you are looking for.

Not sure either, when I bought my car 2nd hand, it had all the wiring in place for a sub should I want to add my own. Have a search on the forums, might be some posts about others putting subs in their cars. Any car audio specialist should be able to advise you as well.

I am a big fan of debadging every car I have owned I've debadged, but when I did it with the focus it didn't look quite right. I think the focus needs some kind of badge myself. I just went with an S badge.

yeah i agree with you it would take a long time to get used to the back without them. i would do the s thing like you but unfortunately i dont have a zetec s i have a titanium model

i like this focus badge what you think?

I was thinking about one of those myself a while back. I actually prefer the mk2 badges.

So I got some inspiration the other day with regards to painting the drums on my car. Done one and so far it looks ok. Mite need another coat. I also intended on changing my oil and air filter but went to change the air filter and the place I bought it fr sold me one slightly too big. I'm now considering a performance air filter. Anyone have any ideas if what to get.

Thanx

So I finished cleaning and painting one of my brake drums. Took me a while to get the wheel undone and off but got there in the end. Below are pictures before and after. Personally I think spray may have been easier but here they are.

Yeah a big difference. I thought at first I would possible have to apply a second coat but once it was dry properly I felt it didn't need it. Gotta do the other side and hope to do that tomorrow. May concider the brake calipers if I can but not sure what colour to go for.
