    Autobeam LED indicators ordered for the front only, as I obviously have custom led rear lights. And also a full blue interior upgrade. 

    Anyways, I've now set out my plans for the year.. I won't be touching the engine at all as I don't want void warranty on it. (after September, il consider modifying the car for performance) 
    Will start after the winter weather in March with - 35mm lowering springs, full trc splitter kit, eyebrows and full flyeye headlight wrap. 
    Until then, wrap up warm😂

    Just a lot of combustible materials near the workstations, chemicals being stored on shelves next to box's above head height there's a risk of falling on someone's head or next to them on the table and looks like there's a bin blocking the eyelash station down there to the right lol

    [mention=58818]TomsFocus[/mention] I'd say have a good look at the Ecoboost Fiestas. They're cracking little cars with excellent fuel economy and (with the exception of the ST) a really comfy ride. You're clearly a Ford man so why not get something you'll really like (if it's no more expensive)? I loved my Zetec and used to own a Focus too.

    @Lenny honestly not sure. I'd of thought it's a processing one.

    Looks like they could use some 5's training in that lab it's very cluttered especially for a chemical environment, safety & fire hazard aswell as risk of objects falling from a height, 
    I assume is an education lab and not a processing one?

    Things have been a bit quiet here. Thought I might tell a story on what I did last week. 
    Last week went into uni to pick up this M&S bag containing a polistyrene box with ice in it. Im currently doing a dissertation looking at mice spleen cells so had to go to this place to get the spleens and bring them back to uni to extract the cells. The ice box is to keep the spleens fresh. 
    Did find it funny carrying the bag on the train. Would of been a little funny if someone thought of it as a suspicious package 🤣
     
    Went to the place and it's not bad. Wouldn't mind working in this sort of environment 
     
    From there went back and carried out the experiment. Hadn't eaten a thing from 8am to 4pm so went to one of the shops nearby and got the British classic fish and chips 🤣. Do hate my stomach as I just overthink about it and worry if all of a sudden Id feel sick

    I can't save up due to my circumstances though, money is the main issue here, I don't have enough income to cover basic living costs let alone put any away for savings, that's the reality of living off illness benefits as a young male at least, it's not all financed SUVs and 50" plasmas like you see on TV lol.  The only reason I currently have the budget for a 'new' car is inheritance after my Nan passed away last year.  But that budget is dropping every month as I have to dip into it for bills etc.  I won't have this sort of budget again any time soon, which is why I need to make the right choice this time and make sure it's something I'll be able to drive for the foreseeable future in terms of smooth ride, low running costs and reliability at the very least.  That was the idea back in 2014 when I bought a one year old 107...and immediately realised I couldn't drive it further than a couple of miles without feeling really ill!  So I sent it back and bought the 6 year old Mk2 Focus 1.6TDCi instead, which had a good ride and affordable running costs...but sadly the DPF caused the issues there as you know lol.
    I really have been considering the EcoBoost Fiesta's this weekend, but without being able to 'borrow' one for a week I really won't know whether I'll be able to cope with the ride on them or not.  The anxiety of a short test drive makes me feel really ill anyway so that's no help at all, I really don't want a repeat of the 107 fiasco.
    I don't think there's a simple black & white answer to it tbh.  Realistically I know I can't afford to drive, and should give up the car, as I should have done back in 2014.  I am now in a position where there are shops and supermarkets within walking distance (which I didn't have back in 2014 living in a rural village) and obviously for anything else I could buy online and have delivered.  But although one Nan has now passed away, the other one has very limited mobility herself now and relies on me driving over to hers each week (rural 30 mile round trip) for various things so I feel I can't really let her down by giving up driving.

    yes here are the pics of the wheels
    this is the wheel before so you can see with the after pic how much better the new wheels fill the arches.
    also gone back to the standard rear lights at the minute so put in silver indicator bulbs to get rid of the fried egg look and bought a set of autobeam reverse l.e.d bulbs and must say they are bright bring the rear light up to date a treat. did try to catch a before with the standard bulb and after with the l.e.d but look better in the flesh. bottom pic is before standard bulb and the one above is after l.e.d bulb did buy a s badge from ebay that I added to the front grill.
    that it for the mo next on the list I want to get a custom exhaust just got to save again now lol also need to attach the front splitter from Maxton design when I got some spare time and the weather improves.
    Must say very happy with how the wheels have made the car look and glad I went for these as I was also looking at a set of bola B1S or bola B10S.

    @Lenny that is a true story 🤣. It was also snowing then which didn't help. Could also have one of those electric air pumps but again won't help if the tire bursted or is leaking considerably. Ford for some reason don't supply a breaker bar so I don't get howd you'd loosen the nuts. I remember calling someone from the petrol station to help and him standing on the wrench but didn't help. With the breaker bar you can just loosen the nuts by hand. 
    The de-icer I have because my front heated windscreen don't work. Only one filament is working.
