    • Admiring the new inner tie bars and track rod ends. Factory stuff like this certainly looks quality, the track rods didn't actually fail but the tie rods were worn and they did last 10 years and 120k+ miles.

    • Front wings replaced with none dented and damaged painted ones as filling and painting the 2 existing wings would not be cost effective.
    • The same H1 Osram CBI lamps installed into the AFL high beam positions to match the cornering lamps.
    • Bonnet painted by magic hands Stu (new boy) both sides fitted with GRP heat proof (i hope) copy Focus RS vents to look as factory as possible. Bonnet liner fitted with cut outs for the vents.

    • New genuine Bosch fuel pressure sensor fitted, its just under the engine cover thankfully. Even though the engine had been left to rest for 15 mins the fuel liked to bubble out of the fitting as it was expanding. I did have lots of blue roll around the area. Before and after op-com info, reads the same. So most likely only fails when hot and been doing a high or low speed run.
