  1. Thank you! Happy with how she looks, now I just need speed [emoji964][emoji100] lol Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Found a cool spot for photos so made the most of the space [emoji16] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah pretty good timing if I say so myself [emoji57] Hope your car flies through MOT with no issues at all! 🤞🏽 Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. **JUNE UPDATE** BB has had quite a bit of attention recently! The timing belt was giving up the ghost so had that changed along with the others. I also had an issue where my coolant was heating to the point where it bubbled and overflowed from the expansion tank before the fan kicked in (for just a few seconds) to cool it down and bring it back down in between min and max levels. Turns out there was an issue with the relay which meant that my fan kicked in too late and cut out too quickly to keep my coolant at the right levels. This is FINALLY sorted and I now have no issues with coolant leaking all over the place [emoji1417] My car was back in tip top condition in time for Bromley Pageant. Here she is on the Ford Club GB [emoji636] stand: Today, she went in for her MOT! Always a dreaded time of year for me. Apart from a quick headlight alignment, she passed with only 2 minor advisories (both of which I was aware of anyway [emoji57]) Another happy year of motoring with BB and I can now get on with a few more plans that I have for her [emoji16] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Fiesta in The Park 2018 Sunday 13th May - Godmanchester, Huntingdon Had some more professional ones taken by Ford Club GB's photrapher Liam Miller/ LM Photography as well [emoji41][emoji7] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Front end definitely looks much better [emoji1419] Thanks! Need to get myself to a few more before the end of the year for sure Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Thank you! [emoji16] LOL so relieved that it's not showing! Sounds like you've got some nice little plans coming up. It's all about those finishing touches [emoji5] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. A quick before and after comparison of the front end! Not the best photo but the new bumper definitely does make a difference in person! Pictures of my car from Fiesta in The Park at the weekend will be going up once I get home this evening. Was such a good event and I left with that "first show" buzz. Was nice to finally put owner's faces to the cars I've seen on the forum, Instagram, Facebook etc. Sometimes you forget that there's a human behind the creation!
  9. Thanks! I know, its awful isn't it. The new ones are painted also by the previous owner but will still swap my bits over [emoji5] Yes I noticed the tyre too [emoji35] will need to get it changed ASAP! One thing after another with this car lol. That's really nice Zain. Any difference in the breaks? Not familiar with the ST ones at all. Thinking of doing my rear drums black as I think gold will be too much! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. !! LONG POST - Picture Heavy!! This is a big week for BB! Went for a pressure test to put a stop to my disappearing coolant issue once and for all. Had a new expansion tank fitted today as the worn tread on mine meant that the lid didn't screw down properly and coolant was just evaporating out of the top. Looks great in the engine bay but made me realise how much everything else needs a clean lol. Got round to painting my calipers afterwards which I'd been putting of for a while. Here's one side. Wheel off: All cleaned and ready for painting: Cracked open the Hammerite: Painted: Finished look: Really pleased with this afternoon's little project and glad that it looks as subtle as I was hoping! Also picked up another front bumper as a quick, easy-ish fix for the previous owners poor painting skills, a scrape from a blue vehicle and the really poor fit. I sweated and literally bled trying to fit it last weekend but some of the bolts/screws are mashed and some are in really awkward places that I just couldn't get to. Tomorrow, a real mechanic will be taking over and will hopefully be able to do the swap without much hassle. It's in much better condition paintwork wise, just praying all the fittings are in tact! Looking forward to a fresher front end. Pictures to follow, as usual [emoji6] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Ahh bless you! Thanks so much [emoji5] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Slightly yes, hence a generous use of primer to start with. Did a rush job on the top grille last year sometime and the paint was already deteriorating so I did a proper job this time! My dad asked me that too and I said it wasn't as it's always fitted fine, but now that I look at the pictures closely, I can see that you're right [emoji35] Never noticed! The paint I used wasn't as jet black as I expected so goes nicely with the car and isn't an overpowering black in my opinion. Depends on the paint you get I suppose Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Ahh are you not? I just think it looks a bit cleaner but thanks for your comments [emoji5] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you! Much appreciated [emoji16] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. Took advantage of the sun this afternoon and got my faded plastics finished! I'm happy with the results but feel like they could be blacker - I didn't quite get the jet black look I was hoping for! Definitely a big improvement from how they were originally though [emoji1417] A naked looking BB after taking the plastics off Started with a few coats of primer Layered up the matt black Finished off with a matt lacquer Below is the finished result!
