    Clever birds those crows. Found this interesting piece of research online. Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts. However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car. MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly concluded the cause: when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger. The scientific conclusion was that while all the lookout crows could say "Cah", none could say "Truck."

    I love our brainy crows that come on our back yard,we live on end house with fields and large trees so a few birds come but the last 3 weeks i have put a tub of water on our shed as well as having a bird bath. 3 massive crows get there bread and dip it in the bath to make it soft,sometime leave it and come back then eat it and go onto shed as deeper tub (3'') and drink and wash. Will have to have a word with them as they are starting on junk food now,french fries and bits of a beefburger as someone dropped some just outside on the road,keeps the pigeons away which is a great thing.

    Just Some More Edge Photos

    Wife and I took the car on a short road trip for a week around Europe with the grand plan being down to Croatia and back via France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Luxembourg. Anyway, just thought I'd share some pics of the car and you might be interested ๐Ÿ™‚ Also for those interested, theres a map at the bottom of the rough route. Overall was a good trip and no problems (fortunately) and for a car that's almost 2 tons it doesn't do too bad. Had it cruising at 130mph for a while on the autobahn a few times but couldn't quite match the Mercs/Audis etc ๐Ÿ˜ The sign recognition is much more suited for Europe and worked great. Different things in different countries as well as showing speed signs in black for some reason in Croatia, not sure what that was about if anybody knows? Anyhow, total of... 3089 miles 60 hours driving (Trip Computer) Avg. 39.4mpg Rest stop in Hungary Rest stop in Croatia Random village in Hungary Viewpoint in Croatia Viewpoint in Croatia Ferry from Pag to Prizna (Croatia) AC and AC seats quite nice in the heat! Read a lot of bad reviews on the Sync2 but I quite like it and having used a Sync3 in a Lincoln Navigator on a road trip in the US, prefer the style of S2 Apartment in Croatia Bonus pic... Spot the Edge Trip computer reset as we left home Rough route we took except M25 via Dartford both times

    Salary increase is only half the story though, if you look at prices of everything else (rent, bills, groceries, fuel etc) it doesn't usually mean any more money in the pocket unfortunately.

    Odd one..

    I just spent an entertaining few minutes looking up ideas and there are loads of websites and blogs which talk about this - just google "sleeping in a hatchback car" for ideas. It seems the most common way is to take out the back seats and build a platform from plywood to raise the bed up and give storage room underneath. You can make up black-out blinds using silver insulation material to help keep warm. Then you take it from there and add features as you want, like lighting, 12V fridge, roof box, cooking stove etc. Looks like fun, but not sure I'd convince my wife to go along with the idea!

    Rust proofing under car - Focus mk2.5

    Any hard setting treatment can trap water. Rust is unstable, and will continue to grow and change under a paint film, which tends to make the paint peel off, creating an ideal water trap. For existing rust, the best pre-treatment is simple phosphoric acid. This is available as Jenolite, or in many other products, or just as plain phosphoric acid (typically 81% concentrate, dilute to about 24% concentration for rust treatment). It converts rust (iron oxides & hydroxides) into much more stable iron phosphate, which acts as a passivation layer, and can be painted over. For protection I just use basic Waxoyl, which does not last long on exposed parts (about a year though), but is easy to apply and does not trap water as it is flexible. Longer lasting treatments will be available, but will be much more expensive, and I have no personal experience to recommend any. I never found bitumen based underbody seals to be of any use at all. Be very suspicious of zinc based primers, most are useless. The zinc is contained in an insulating binder, and can not form the electrically conductive layer essential for galvanic protection. I did look at the Bilt-Hamber version, it specifically claims 90% zinc creating a conductive coating, but it is not cheap! There is no doubt that a really good galvanised style finish, with plenty of zinc, does work very well for rust prevention though, if it can be achieved.

    As I say, I'm not 100% on this but I think @iantt mentioned on another thread that the gpf had been fitted to the (otherwise unrevised) 1.0 in the Fiesta.

    Fiesta mk7 St-3 (St180)

    The cars back with the Milltek fitted and sounds fantastic, nice and quiet just cruising, but when you floor it, having that gorgeous raspy Milltek sound is great. Will get videos after work. Also had two powerflex exhaust mounts fitted to the back box to avoid it hitting the diffuser, and the garage found a couple of bodged bolts on the cat, which have been replaced, great work from scc. Excuse the filthy car:

    Fan belt noise

    I had a 1.6 tdci which made a strange noise after I replaced the timing belt. I took the top section timing belt cover off and could see that at certain rpm the belt was vibrating a lot on itโ€™s downward run from top to bottom. I slackened off the tensioner a tad and it was fine after that. You could try removing that upper cover and see whatโ€™s going on.

    Mk 2 facelift rear headlights...

    Physically the lights will fit, but the wiring is different. The mk2 has two plugs which attach onto the bulb holders, whereas the mk2.5 has a loom attached to the bulb holders that goes in behind the carpet in the boot. What you really want is a set of RS/ST led lights thatโ€™ll plug straight into your mk2.5 and get them smoked. I just so happen to have a set going spare.๐Ÿ˜

    Modern cars tend to shout at you if you don't press the clutch to start. However I still know people that have started with the clutch down, then immediately lifted it, not realising the car was in gear, and hit another car or even their house! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ I'm the only person that drives my car and never leave it in gear, yet I still always check it's out of gear before starting!
