      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Blistering Paint around filler cap

    Hi ya, i work in a bodyshop, its common. If having it repaired, make sure the filler cap assembly is removed. its quite easy, take off the fuel filler cap & you will see a phillips screw just of top centre, unscrew it & then rotate the complete black plastic assembly (with the fuel filler flap attached) anti clock wise & it will come off the car, this way you dont have to remove the fuel tank. I tend to use a die grinder to grind out rust/ corrosion then treat with Q-rust. skim it up with top stop. flat & then 2k prime. Prep & paint the quarter panel out. I always remove the rear quarter window too as its only 4 screws & it makes a much neater job. i always smear grease on the apature before refitting so as to repel any water spray coming up from the N/S/R wheel.
