Nah no issues at all, I asked after if there was any problems with them and he's said no,the beam pattern is spot on and it's the correct colour so no reason to fail it!

Will get a pic in a bit mate!!

Not so much today, but yesterday my list consisted off:

1) Getting new tyres put on the front because they was rather illegal. Grip now is immense in the dry! Wet isn't so good, cannot for the life of me get traction pulling away hard, especially when the tyres are cold :lol: (nankang ns-2's).

2) A bit of front inner arch chassis modification. If you take the front wheel off and look at the chassis area directly upwards, there is a little tab about 5cm long that sticks down, thats been bent out the way - reason? Well being SO fucking low, the tyres was touching it very slightly. nothing to worry about as such, but its out the way now.

3) Took the drums off to check the rear shoe condition and cleaned it all out too.

4) Got pulled over today for driving 'too fast around a roundabout' turned out the police man was a fellow ford enthusiast who owns a focus rs500 which I will be taking out for a drive in about 30mins time :D. Also he has a mk2 escorth cosworth project... he only wanted to ask me about my car :lol:

5) Cleaned the wheels... and only the wheels :lol:

Plans for the next few days is just to give it a general once over again seeing as I haven't given it one in about 6months, re-apply any underseal that needs applying to under the car and the arches, give it a good clean and polish, go rust hunting and thats about it really.

More like a project thread update really :lol:

Totally biast towards HID's. Could never have a car without them.
