Drag raced with a guy at work in his 15 plate focus ST. That was fun......oh and no clutch slip.

Decide to do something about the sagging bonnet liner, The cost of a replacement is mental at 100 quid a pop, so I spent 2 quid on bamboo canes, split them in halves, padded the ends, cut to lengths so they couldn't fall out and where they crossed I used cable ties, it's no work of art but very tidy and saved 98 quid. also, Ambered the fog lights with film looks good on carbon grey. And my black rear VW boot badge has carbon infills.

Hi Borbus, have messed about for an hour with uploading and found it too confusing, I'm computer illiterate, but send your e-mail and I'll send you a couple of  photos'

Fitted a new VWR Racingline panel filter , removed the snow guard and the K & N filter that had been in the car. I also successfully cleaned the top of the filter which had rust on it , and had been annoying me for some time everytime i had the bonnet up. I had bought some 3mm brass wire wheel brushes on Ebay and used them with a cordless drill. I was very pleased with the results.
I have also got some Skoda Yeti sports exhaust tips to go on the car when the weather improves a bit.

Smoked the lower half of my tail lights courtesy of an overlay kit from Grafixpressions.com and fitted Skoda Yeti tailpipes.

Really pleased with how the lights turned out.

Fitted my rear badge overlay from Klii Motorwerkes. I had originally had one of their inlay rear badge inserts fitted but part of it came off while jet washing a while ago , so i decided to fit a full overlay this time around as its a far better job.
Only trouble with this is it involves splitting the chrome VW badge from the remaining part of the rear handle , and ive cracked mine in removing it.

So my option is do i go for a genuine new chrome one , or go for a gloss black or carbon fibre one instead?

Decisions decisions...
