Look what the heck i did today:
13576741_832118906931997_2883952941618053785_o.jpg
And for what? just to risk everything and try making this:
13641037_832140080263213_6125831268488172355_o.jpg
Yes i removed the needle, no i did not disconnected the battery for airbag removal :) Yes all works normally.

And all i got was this:
13580439_832140106929877_6489510929518023363_o.jpg
Next week I'll change the lens :)

Work again:
13680116_835131639964057_5793818381977278745_o.jpg
and got finally this:
13737529_835156099961611_6582345945747787062_o.jpg
Now two problems...
1. damn typo (get's instead of get).
2. "Sometimes" was hit right in the middle by the needle stopper...

For me, it's ok... we can bypass a typo I think...


Oh... there is a way to remove the cluster without removing the steering... Just pop the lens in the dash, lens goes through wheel, back part goes side to left :)

So as my cluster glass was scratched... i thought of a polish...
so here it is:
glass1.jpg
Wet sanding:
glass2.jpg
Cleaned off:
glass3.jpg
Pass 1:
glass4.jpg
Pass 2:
glass5.jpg
Final pass, and waxed too:
glass6.jpg
The little scratched are just really really not observable surface scratched from the microfiber cloth... but looks amazing...

And of course, finally the final one:

Little update... broken my wing mirror :))) ordered a Fiesta 4 heated glass... should be a straight fit.
Got a new front grill, which i will cannibalize soon
also polished my gear ball :))
and made 3000 km in two weeks... i'll be back with photos...

Also a new Pioneer mech-less headunit was installed, and the woofer signal cable rewired with RCA... huge difference...

Back again...

as the paint from my left wing mirror just flew away i repainted them :) matte black... lovely lovely fit:
WP_20160902_12_04_18_Pro.jpg
Tried to order Puma heated mirror glass... they said the don't have it... ordered a Fiesta MK4 one... they said it wouldn't fit... but well:
WP_20160902_12_30_16_Pro.jpg
WP_20160902_12_30_32_Pro.jpg
and here she is:
WP_20160902_12_34_42_Pro.jpg
like a glove...

as being an aftermarket glass, the conector pins for the heating was NOT a straight fit... the pins are smaller but i managed to put the actual connectors to it... should test it see if it's working but i am waiting for a cold night for that :D

Also a friend sent a broken rear wing... Its an ms design one... I sanded it down, primed and painted. Of course before i made the glueing with some epoxy
I drilled 4 holes and cut a bicycle inner rubber to fit between my trunk and wing :)

Looks good.

How did you do the headlights like that? That's a pretty good look for those, I reckon.

go to fleebay :) search for oracal 641 sticker sheet... buy...

get an A4 paper or A3, put on headlight, draw the shape... cut the A3 paper... test fit... if you like, mark the shape on the oracal.
one normal, one mirrored. cut, stick and you are done :D
