At last, I've managed to get some pics of my new front end.

I gave it a full clean as the paintwork felt a bit rough after being in for spraying. The car was fully clayed then x4 coats of Werkstat Acrylic.

Here's it sitting in the garage after the clean.

So it's had the mirrors sprayed gloss black

All the front grilles and foglight surrounds sprayed gloss black and a white / chrome DMB gel overlay badge put on the front

Triple R front splitter sprayed gloss black

While it was in getting sprayed I also got the rear drums sprayed black as they were covered in rust.

Also the wee bits of inner arch in front of the rear wheels were starting to look a bit tatty so got them sprayed black instead of the normal white.

I'm glad the front splitter clears the speed ramps outside the house ................... just, haha!!

When I say the front end's finished, that's not quite right as I had ordered some black projector headlights exactly the same as Rob H's however they pulled them all that week for failing MOT's.

Here's hoping they get the problem sorted and get them back in stock again, supposedly a 6 month wait however.

Also getting a tinted sunstrip fitted, hopefully next week, then my car will be completely finished ...................... I think!!

Sprayed black Hammerite.

Brush painting just as good mate ! Halfords do high temp paint for about 5 and lasted me for my last 3 cars so personally paint them with brush :-)

This is why I'm VERY hesitant to put Eibachs on my MK7 Titanium, the speed-humps round Glasgow and Hamilton nearly wrecked my 03 Focus Zetec and that was only factory lowered and I took them slowly and at all sorts of angles to find the best one.

Yes brush painting will be fine, I just took the opportunity when it was in getting bits sprayed anyway to get the rear drums sprayed. ;)

You should wrap the roof in black carbon fiber would look amazing on that car! I like a lot

I've got eibachs on mine mate and been around Glasgow and Hamilton a few times, tonnes of space left over.

Did think about getting the roof painted gloss black as well but would've just put the cost up more. Not sure about wrapping, would rather have it painted.

Good to see you still looking after it, have you got spacers fitted yours wheels seem to sit more in line with the arch?

Hi Limbo, no spacers. It's possibly the mudflaps that make them look wider. Hope your car's keeping fine.

Hi, rocky1722, really like what youve done with that front end, thought about getting the bit under the badge/upper grill, painted or wrapped in gloss black? looks awesome IMO, gives it an RS sorta look. Just an idea.

Olly.

Thanks for the photoshop Olly. I've done that myself a few times before but I just don't think it suits the Fiesta. :unsure:

I know what you mean! I only think it works with your style bumper, with the vinyl on the lower part! I really like it! Anyway, just a wee thought, thanks anyway! Oliver.

Very nice...  are you keeping the alloys as they are or any plans on giving them a spray?
