    Meguiar's Ultimate Compound And Swirls...

    on hologramming -> http://www.carcleaningguru.com/removing-buffer-trailshologramming/ As far as I am aware autoglym super resin has fillers so yes it will take them out, but when the fillers where away then they will reappear. ( if memory serves me correctly which is not that reliable so i may be wrong lol) myself i would and do use megs 105 mirror glaze for deeper (with orange pad) and megs 205 (white pad) for the lighter stuff. Pad clolours dont count if they are megs pads as they have their own colour system lol Like him or hate him when i started looking this all up for 10 yr old paint i ended up watching shed loads of stuff on you tube by "junkman2000" and i watched it over and over and over. hope in some small way this helps :)

    Broken Map Sensor Vacuum Pipe

    yeah its the bottom pipe of the 3 above the bracket and screw no code so it looks like it cant be bought seprate, which is a sod as it means 25 quid at least for a piece of plastic pipe 6 inches long. typical ford lol thanks for that by the way Nexus

Not sure all this is any clearer. head spinning lol many thanks :)

    Focus Mk2 Fuse Size Mini Or Micro?

    as an off chance does any one have any idea what amp fuse to use when using "add a fuse" for a dash cam, I am going to use a 10amp as the original and have a hardwire kit however my add a fuse did not come with a fuse, i thought 3-5amp but as the fuse is added before the hardwire kit that steps the voltage down from 12v to 5v i thought it might need a bigger one??? if that makes sense lol
