Having not actually passed my test yet, I wanted to learn more about Ford, as I have recently bought a MK3 Base model Fiesta and my boyfriend has two Escorts (:
Plus his conversations really baffle me, so I want to learn more so I don't seem so silly and I have to say he is getting me into cars, even to the point where I am starting my first car project, only added stickers mind you :P

When I brought my Fiesta I instantly fell in love, after all it's small and only cost £145, the only thing wrong with her is that there is a slight hole in the sill and has slight fade, but it is red and was sat for 2 years!

Welcome to the Forum.
We'll do our best to get you up to speed with car jargon that hopefully even your boyfriend doesn't know :D

Welcome along, I am sure a few coats of T-CUT and you will have her eshining to former beauty :)

At the price you paid for the car, it leaves you with a good amount to invest :) Hopefully you have given some thought though to your insurance! when you do get through your test, the forum has an arrangement with Adrian Flux insurers who offer a discount for forum members, so you may find it useful :)

Regards,

Bit of a late reply, but we just made her look all shiny and new again :) T-Cut didn't do the trick unfortunately, the fade was so bad :( So my boyfriend very happily brought a machine buffer and some strong compound and made it bright red and shiny again. The only issue is I have lack of money to do anything else aha, so all the other modifications, MOT and insurance may have to wait or be done very slowly :P
Although I am having some alloys done at the moment, the colour of the car is going to be red and white.
TDCiST
White powder coated alloys look awesome on red fiestas ;)

My mate has done this on his track prepped car.

Yeah I was just going to put a red trim on them, but then I thought of the idea of getting red flakes, I does look good :D
