sorry all the photo bucket crap is not working so back to flicker again any way

like my new lazy way of jacking the car up on to the home made blocks just enough room to get under the car takes around 5/10 mins to set up and is safe on my gravel drive way battery/powered jacking  ;) ;)

Cool...no huffing a puffing...i really want 1 of those car of the week sales ramps you used to see...just drive up it lol. Looked at lifts for the garage and just not enough height...

They look cool i looked at getting them but as you say no good if you need to work on the wheels plus I have the low front bumper... the two jacks I got where on a good sale price at a rated 3 ton each they work well i made a multi adaptor that clips on to the battery so both jacks can be operated at the same time I will post my link to face book to see if that works.....

Thanks guys this is an old mod but Now the controls are from the steering Wheel....

Hi all as some Members already Know I have Hid-away Number Plates that work form Remote Key Fobs so I had two key Fobs for the Front number plate with one of them i got the Idea of using the blank right cover on the steering wheel to house the remote and got hold of a second hand one to modify....also the Idea was to cover both covers left and right in the Carbon fibre effect hydro dip done by Wicked coating's of poole

so in picture form I got to it making the cut outs



once happy with the cut outs then mixed some resin with a blue colour

when the Red led illumination comes on it is very bright so mixing the blue in with the resin this then tones down the lighting and you get a purple/blue/red mixture and is less blinding to the eyes at night 






















https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqZe4RBvlcs   


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTtrU5jxdjQ   Now all done from the steering wheel :D    quick vid of the effect  ;)

So if you got a gadget on a key fob that needs a home .........Happy Modding  :D



Thank you for taking the time to look

Next MOD ......... ;) ;) ;)

Hi back with another Mod build I needed to do this as the ATH hinsburger Front end although its good I needed to have some form of protection and make the front bumper more ridged...... I did not like the look of the splitter type ones you can buy and I need to make mine a three piece project .................


So take some 3.0 mm aluminium plate cut two pieces 120 cm x 25 cm

This allows you to make a curve once cut place the ally on the underside of the front bumper to mark out your mounting holes  and make a general shape then its back to the bench for moulding out with a hammer and files ... ;)  ;)





once you got a rough shape the keep offering it up to the front bumper to make sure that you got the look you want I added a few bits of my own  see pics for some shaping I used chemical metal bond









After your happy with your end result then bolt it up on the bumper to make sure you to canards/splitters look and have the same pitch then it was on to make the centre part this is made from a Ford focus front grill just cut it down and shaped it



Once I had done this I sent all the parts to Wicked Coatings Poole to  Cover the parts in Carbon fibre effect hydro Dip














Back from hydro dipping then i added some Edging of split Rubber and some Mesh wire grill







Then just fitted the 3 pice kit to the car  I also made some strakes out of aluminium 7 mm X 15 mm shaped and drilled two threaded  rear mounting holes these have been placed just above the canard see photo,s







The finish touch was to use a thick layer of tiger seal the reason for this  if you shape the seal and make it flush it will then stop any grit leafs general road shit getting it and make it easier to clean

Ally cost                 £55.40

ford focus grill       £4.50

tiger seal               £  5.60

Split Rubber seal    £ 1.75

Mesh Grill              £2.20

Tools and time around 3 hours .......

Gas heat torch
Files
Saw
Rubber hammer
Drill
8mm Drill bit

Very happy this end product is the second set I have made  :lol:

         Thank You for Taking The Time To Look  ;)  ;)
