  1. This topic may help with a few pointers: https://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/general-technical-chat/252293-penultimate-guide-stopping-tail-light-leaks-zx-hatchback.html?utm_source=FordOwnersClub&utm_medium=ForumLinks&utm_campaign=referrals

    I hope this is still trundling around, @mat_the_cat?

    Another BX

    Bummer. How bad is it?
  4. Oh wow, those seats look amazing!! Are they any softer/more comfortable?
  5. I've asked that very question myself. My Focus has had welding on both sides due to these rubbing and holding water. One suggestion was that they are made from some sort of recyclable/recycled material so contribute towards some sort of eco score. Good work on the water leak!
  6. Sometimes we just reach the end of the road with a car in a mental sense. You sold the Astra after 13 years and I seem to remember you had a Vectra for a long time? So you know can do it, and you'll be alright. I'd be asking myself what I planned to do with the garage space. Is there something else you fancy? Do you need the room? Perhaps sorn it for a bit so you can't drive it, then see if you find yourself wanting to. Have to say a Corsa B is one of those cars that gets me excitedly pointing and taking pictures when I see one. I had an R plate 12v as a courtesy car for 3 months 20 years ago and I still remember it very fondly.
  7. That seems awfully early for snow, even in Canada!
  8. Cable for the interior handle? Only a short section, but I found it fiddle to get the cable off the interior handle so would suggest replacing the whole thing as one unit. Something like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-MK1-98-05-REAR-INTERIOR-DOOR-HANDLE-CABLE-BLACK-REAR-RIGHT-O-S/202631327424?fits=Car+Make%3AFord%7CModel%3AFocus&hash=item2f2dc4aec0:g:X~YAAOSwXHpcky43
  9. Oh I'm not so sure about that, I've heard he doesn't like Fords. I'm polishing my pitchfork as we speak.
  10. Should send the finance co a pic of the 4x4, that'll shut them up. The 1.2 is such a great little engine. I remember test driving one of these back in 2006 and, while it needed revving to get a shift on, never sounded harsh or unwilling. Agreed on the grille. Nice easy mod, too.
  11. Wow, lots going on here! I'd bloody love a Panda 4x4, this one looks like a peach 😎 Quite rare to see a 4x4 with a/c fitted, most don't seem to have it when I've looked on ebay. Looking forward to seeing the seats fitted. We've had 3 x Panda's in the family (1 x Dynamic, 1 x 100hp, 1 x Dynamic 360) and tbh I wish I'd kept the last one. Bloody brilliant little cars. There was an Eleganza (with climate, bleurgh) and the Skydome a couple of streets away parked up for nearly a year recently. Just as I was about to chap the door it disappeared. Bugger.
  12. Agreed. I've enjoyed his videos in the past but he seems to have become very rude about cars that aren't of interest to him. Perhaps its a bit of bluster for the benefit of the audience, but over the last couple of videos where he's visited car shows there have been very unkind, and unwarranted IMHO, comments about cars where the owners often appear to have been right next to him. I finally caved in and put a (polite) note suggesting that the negativity wasn't required, as did others. I notice he's uploaded a video about a Morris Minor. This should be interesting given that his standard comment as he sweeps past them is "no-one cares".
  13. Lovely pics there Sutty. Congratulations!
