Ah good idea , I can change any bulb on the headlight now except the sidelight without removal, i wouldn't have got the bulb out by hand and needed needle nose pliers as suspect how stiff it was they'd never been out. But now with practice can do all the rest without taking it out. Slightly easier on the diesel on the drivers side as the power steering reservoir isn't there its located low down behind the passengers headlight.

Thanks guys

I wasn't keen on the gear knob but it actually feels quite nice to drive with.
If I change it, I'd like to see if a Sport KA one will fit well.

Any updates on the Focus?

Updates on the Focus...
I've got the door handles back for it, bought some springs and put PPF on the bonnet. That's about it unfortunately.
It's been hard to get the time for my friend who painted it and myself to get stuck in to the rest. It probably needs a day, tops to have it back together. I'm not in a rush to get fit finished now I have the Fiesta so I'll just take my time and hopefully have it ready for some shows next year

Oh Jesus, yeah if you needed the pliers to actually remove the bulb you wouldn’t have got away with it! At least it is all done now
