  1. Brake Caliper Paint???

    sorry if this has been covered before... was just wondering if anyone has painted there calipers before? 1. does it look too chavy 2. is it easy to do yourself, and whats involved 3.has anyone got any pictures i was thinking red caliper paint would look quite good on the silver zetec s, as it has the red on the s badges. also would it look stupid as i only have front disc brakes lol thanks in advance for your comments!! Aaron
  2. Hi all, As stated above i think i will be needing new tryes soon. I currently have the origional continental tryes on, any ideas on how much they cost or has anyone changed their tyres for something else... cheers in advance
  3. Higgsy's Zetec S Thread

  4. My Focus Titanium <3

    yea a friend of mine does wrapping and window tints... he has an adhessive he sprays on first then the wrap goes on which hed heat with a heat gun... with the initial adhessivethis would allow you to move the wrap around and then when you apply pressure it would stick solid... my friend had a unit he works from in essex if your interested
  5. Tyre Suggestion On 17" Zetec S Alloys??

    thanks for the links... very helpfull looks like im torn between the goodyear efficient grip performance and the continental sport contact 5!! anyone used both?? the goodyear seem to have better fuel efficiency but not sure if it would look odd having the 2 front tyres different to the back. as it looks as though the continetal have more of a lip over the alloy
  6. Hyrule's Build Thread

    Hmm I'm with Hastings and wernt charged anything for my rear parking sensors or tinted windows...
  7. Washer Nozzle Splatter

    Yea it's a common problem... I've also fitted 3 non return valves which haven't solved the problem
  8. What Tint Is Best On My Focus Zetec S?

    Thanks... I have fitted reverse parking sensors and have the dual Cree reverse parking lights but without those I'd be stuffed and they're not even limo black lol
  9. What Tint Is Best On My Focus Zetec S?

    hi paul, i persoanlly think limo black is too dark... i went with the next shade up not the best pic as i was in an underground carpark and the lighting makes the tints look slightly darker, but you get the idea...
  10. Window Tinting

    I know this is a topic that often pops up on the forum, but im just looking at what people have been quoted to have it done... I have a 5 door focus zs and I will be getting front and rear tints... I am aware of the legal limits, requirements and regulations. So i have been quoted and wanted to see how it compared to other people... So how much have you paid or how much have you been quoted?? Many thanks
  11. Window Tinting

    Haha yea I have as it goes lol
  12. Window Tinting

    Oh ok yea guess that makes sense
  13. Window Tinting

    Ok so this might sound stupid but what is the actual reason for the tint shade being illegal, as many drivers seem to drive around with sun glasses on lol I'd love to see a copper doing a light test on a pair of sunnys haha
  14. Window Tinting

    So I wonder why tinting firms claim it is illegal seen as it is there career you'd think they would know??
  15. Window Tinting

    But it sounds a lot it's actually not... And it's no worse than wearing sun glasses I guess
  16. Window Tinting

    Well technically the law is you can't have any tints on any fronts windows as of 2004 i believe... Ask any tinting firm!
  17. Window Tinting

    had an 18% tint on the rear windows and a 55% tint on the fronts... also got the covex light tints on the rear lights...
  18. Window Tinting

  19. Higgsy's Zetec S Thread

  20. Illuminated Ignition Ring.

    Yea I guess it depends on how quickly you want it... And how reliable your source is lol Lenny didn't you have it where you asked for certain colours and they just sent you whatever they likes (colour wise) lol But it is stupid how much postage costs in the uk!

  22. Window Tinting

  23. Illuminated Ignition Ring.

  24. Illuminated Ignition Ring.

    Yea they are really delicate to be fair... What colour did you go for... I found I had to file the back edge to get it all back together.
  25. Window Tinting

    Popped back up to Essex tints today to get the covex tints on the rear lights... Wasn't to keen on the idea before but had a think about it and went for it!!! Again a real professional job and it looks fantastic imho They worked wonders with the heat gun and I couldn't be happier... My only concern is when it comes to washing it lol Probably won't be able to get any decent pics until next weekend with these dark evenings but will try soon.
