    Things I Do Like

    I do like finishing yet another model kit to add to my growing collection. This time it's another rally car (an Audi Quattro) to go alongside the Mk2 Escort RS1800 I finished about a month ago.

    In addition to the above I do like completing my Sunday with a couple of cheese burgers (in albeit squashed brioche buns!) and a Southern Comfort... I do thank God for these good days when I'm feeling not to bad and can see the positives in life. Days like this are quite rare for me.

    I do like this arriving today after winning a competition last week. This will help me so much when building many more model kits. I never thought I would win and just entered it for a laugh as the question was model related. It was purely coincidental that I won a manual based on one of my areas of interest/hobbies.

    What always cracks me up with this, and I've been on the same end as well. You do something that they think is wrong. They then proceed to break all the rules of the road, but that's OK because they are doing it to teach you a lesson. It never seems to enter their tiny minds that what they are doing is just as wrong as what they think you've done.

    New Ford Focus Mk 4 windscreen trim

    Some people specifically ordered the 1.5 ECOboost hatchback because of the multilink independent rear suspension. After Months of waiting the car arrived and turned out to have the torsion beam rear suspension without even being notified that Ford changed the specifications. There are also people that ordered a 1.5 ECOboost hatchback with the adaptive suspension and after 7 Months of waiting (the expected production date changed several times) they were notified that the car they ordered is no longer available. A significant change of the technical specifications like the rear suspension system will probably be a legit reason to reject the car or cancel the order. Especially because until today Ford has not yet corrected the information on brochures / website while the technical changes were introduced Months ago.

    I do like that our neighbours have decided to cut down their willow trees! We were a bit apprehensive at first when we heard they were going to do it, we thought it might cut down on our privacy but it hasn't impacted at all. The only thing it has done is let more light into our outside seating area...... meaning longer alfresco drinking time ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅ‚ Before and after pics ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    New Ford Focus Mk 4 windscreen trim

    Below the changes Ford made in April/May: * Just one boot light instead of two on the hatchback versions. * The rear doors do no longer have keyless sensors. * Active suspension no longer available for 1.5 ECOboost * 1.5 ECOboost hatchback versions (except Active and Vignale) gets the torsion beam rear suspension instead of the independent rear suspension (only the 2.0 ECOblue diesel hatchback version has the independent rear suspension). * Adjustable boot floor no longer available. * New headlight design. ST-Line and Titanium get black headlights. All others (including Active) get chrome headlights. * New type of Keyless remote with integrated motion sensor. On the new remotes the keyless signal is only transmitted when the key detects motion. When no motion is detected the key enters sleep mode. * Heated washerjets no longer present. * Shark tail antenna Focus Active no longer painted in body color (except vehicles with panoramic roof). Changes which are announced for October: * Shadow Black will be replaced by a new black color (English color name is not yet announced, German name is "Obsidian Schwarz"). * New blue color will be intoduced (English color name is not yet announced, German name is "Panther Blau"). * Diffused Silver no longer available. * Dark Mulberry no longer available. * Orange Glow no longer available. The source of this information are leaked internal documents from Ford and information supplied by Ford dealers. I just collected this information from several German forums. At this moment most of the changes are confirmed by people who received their new vehicle.

    The dogs are doing ok today. It's their day off so are lolling around in the yard laying in the shade. I put a plastic paddling pool out for them and they love laying in the water resting their chins on the edge. Willow is retiring next month so is winding down on work load, she's gone nice and mellow so the transition has been painless. Jed is 2 years from retirement so is in his element and Treo is still quite young and willful but very focused at work, he's shaping into an excellent worker and a worthy successor to Willow's reputation. Willow in mellow mode. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    I hope you did not resort to reading the instructions!! I was assembling a gate, a complicated bridleway thing with a big hockey stick latch, and my co-assembler noticed bits of paper in the packets of bits. I pointed out that, as males, we did not need instructions, and he promptly left them on the ground! In fact, we could have done with some instructions for the final assembly of the hockey stick thing, but that part of the assembly had no paper in it at all, so we were left to guess. Needless to say it did not work when built: The self rising hinges clashed with the latch mechanism, but a bit of dowell bashed into the incorrect bolt hole, and some new holes drilled did get it working nicely. Instructions, ha. They are usually in incomprehensible gibberish translated from Chinese via German to English, anyway!

    It's not that the phone is explosion proof rather that it's safe to use in an enviroment where a spark or electrical pulse from an unprotected electrical device could ignite gases, powders, fuels or anything RF sensitive like explosive detonators etc. It's called intrinsically safe equipment.

    A Big Thank You โ€‹๐Ÿ‘โ€‹

    Hi, I just want to say a BIG thank you to everyone on this forum who recently helped me when I undertook my timing / auxiliary belt change (including all the ancillaries), DPF issues, reverse sensors and my general confusion when changing coolant. I would like to especially mention @TomsFocus & @Albert27 who helped SO much from choosing the correct parts to remote diagnosing the issues with my 2010 Ford Focus 1.6TDCi Titanium. I would have made a complete mess of this without all of your help and you've helped me to understand better how my car works. Oh, I had to replace my O/S wing and these guys on eBay were great! An easy to fit part with 2K clear coat, superb paint colour match and great price: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-PAINTED-FRONT-WING-MK1-MK2-ANY-SIDE-ANY-COLOUR-NEW/111278095263?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Cheers, Stophen.

    Mk2.5 to Mk2.5 ST Spoiler Upgrade

    Both positive and negative cables on the factory loom are black. So you will need to get the brake pedal pressed down to activate the brake light; in order to ensure the polarity for wiring. I would usually ask the girlfriend or wife but mine was annoyed at me for purchasing and turned in to a clam shell; wouldn't do nothing for me, So I used the head and pipe from the vacuum cleaner to act as a foot on the brake pedal; jammed it against the front seat; worked well for finding the correct polarity on the brake.

    Adaptive cruise control, dangerous

    Sorry to throw this in the mix, but isnโ€™t the point of adaptive cruise about maintaining distance from the car youโ€™re following, not using it to stop the car dead. Surely if cars in front of you were slowing to that degree, then youโ€™d be braking too, thus turning off cruise control anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Brake pad issue?

    On my second set of Brembo's and first set of Brembo disks, they were/are a lot thicker than the pads in your photo but also had that chamfer on the ends, its normal. I smother everything in copper grease, all contact points with the calliper, the piston and the backs of the pads, plus the hubs and all faces that make contact wit the wheel. The brembos have never made any noise, brake superbly and produce almost no dust (so much cleaner wheels than the OE pads Squeel is caused by vibration somewhere in the system. This is normally started by the hubs and the disk mount surface not being cleaned fully and not being greased on fitting the disk, so there is a very small play in the disk. Greasing everything prevents this and acts as a damper to any vibration as well as stopping corrosion. Also means in 50K's time the disk will come off again with no effort and you alloy wheels won't salt corrode to the disks
