    Well i went to JW Racing in Luton on Friday to have the Exotic Pony Mods sequential tail light kit fitted, the day turned into a bit of a disaster, as it is 70 miles from where i live i had to sit and wait for 7 hours!! Job should of taken 2 to 4 hours but ended up taking so long as there was a problem with one of the original Ford LED Boards, it was working fine up until the install and as it is the outer most board it is not replaced by this modification, but as you can see from the video it is now not working. Fair play to JW Racing as they have ordered a new light from Ford and will replace it when it arrives free of charge, but all in all not a good day.

    No you have to open up the lights and remove two of the three led boards and also swap out the control module inside the light.

    On the plus side, it gives me the impetus to investigate getting yellow stripes........

    Was at the dealer to have my air-con re-gassed. Mentioned it was blowing warm at the third service, just inside my warranty, and it went back mid-April to be tested however they couldn't find a leak resulting in the re-gassing diagnosis. Apparently three years is Ford's recommended interval on these systems(!) but they didn't have any of the new stuff in stock and needed to be trained in the process hence the return today.
    On evacuation they found the system almost empty, which is not normal and would suggest a leak however a nitrogen fill with dye has still failed to show up anything. So have now been re-gassed with more dye and the car is blowing cold again.
    Can't help but think i've not seen the back of this issue...:facepalm:

    I had a similar problem with my Vette. Aircon stopped working, completely empty, so re-gassed including dye. 12 months later, completely empty again but no evidence of leaks on high pressure or low pressure sides. Refilled but sold it not too long afterwards so don't know if it's an annual cycle. To be honest, a re-gass at £70 lasted (at least) all summer and is a lot cheaper than replacing components once you're out of warranty!

    I think the new Unicorn farts that they put in are more than £70 a pop.

    my cars all have one of 2 things in common, their wipers are either shit and don't clear anything or the aircon doesn't work.

    So the mustang has pretty good wipers..... i've never bothered turning the aircon on :)

    That new air con gas is silly expensive stuff, I’m sure we pay around £750 a bottle for it at work compared to about £200 a bottle for the old type!

    do you not need vented catch cans to release case pressure ?

    It’s a recirculating setup, from valve cover back to inlet post MAF. If the were vented you risk unmetered air and bad running.

    on turbos we have to vent them otherwise we get too much pressure so SC's are a little different.

    Trip to GT101 to have the Ford 2019 rear spoiler, MMD front fog light splitters and Stoptech drilled/slotted brake discs fitted.

    Was a bit worried about the spoiler tbh but once I saw it on I love it :thumbsup:

    Next up, painted callipers once I sort the logistics out.
