I thought I would start a thread and show you all the changes I am doing to my 1.8 zetec mondeo. First thing I did was put a touch screen DVD head unit in the car complete with PS2 in the back for my son. Here is a few pic's of the transformation.

Next thing was a K&N airfilter.

 

 

After that I decided to have a theme. Along came the new badges.

 

 

 

 

 

Plus after seeing some other ford owners with LED interior lights I decided to get some. They look better in person.

Nice, can you change your settings on your new head unit to red too?

Thanks. Yes, but I have it on multi and it scans through all the colours.

Started to put on a flyseye kit yesterday but it started raining. Gonna finish it at the weekend.

 

 

Took it to Topgear tuning in Stockport for a custom longlife stainless steal exhaust. Well pleased with the results.

 

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

Added LED sidelights today.

Done a bit more since the weather was ok today.

 

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

Looking for some new rims now. On a budget lol. 

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

Finished off the other side today.

Been a while because of the weather but had the chrome bits off the car and painted them ford radiant red.

 

 

 

 

I like the indicators and the rear badge. Not sure on the front end so I might add a bit more red somewhere....any thoughts?

 

Also waiting for a new set of gel badges as I knackered the last ones up removing them...silly me.

In my opinion i don't think the red suits the grill and it looks better in Chrome (stock) or black or  carbon wrap would suit it

 

The calipers and the side indicators look good

Yep the red and black thing is a bit eighties for me,chrome looks good as standard.

Head unit etc was a nice upgrade!

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

Yeah, I been in two minds about the red front. But I am thinking of adding a bit more to try and make it look better.

I have to confess I'm not sure of the red... Good on you for giving it a go though., plus if you like it... who cares what everyone else thinks!

Sorry red colour spolis the car you should of got them all carbon wraped..im liking what your doing to it

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

Im changing it to black carbon. Im keeping the badge surrounds the same.

Bill Badger

Your car, your choice. However, I would suggest that you keep the standard parts so that you can put them back on if you should ever sell it. As it is with all the red touches, it may seriously affect the resale value.

 

No offence meant :)

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

No offence taken. The red front is coming off and I am getting them carbon wrapped. I think it will look much better.

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

Changed the red, I admit it looked naff so I went for carbon fiber vynal to cover it. I also out on my newly painted Mondeo badge.

Oh I almost forgot to add pic's of the tinting I had done a few weeks ago. Opted for just the rear being done, which I thought was the est option. Really please with it.

Interesting choice of colours, i agree the grill surround didnt look right being red but the rest looked nice, can you get a distance shot of the front with the carbon on.

 

are you going to paint the upper and lower grills too to match the rest of the car

Avenger1978

like the carbon look

Just picked up some new front and rear brakes. Got an advisory so need doing in the next month or so. Just need to find someone to fit them for me who doesnt charge a fortune.

stevegtuk

why not fit them yourself?

Jason 'Tweek' Batty

I would love to but I live next to a main road so its not safe enough. PLus I might need a bit of help as I never done my own brakes before, I have helped others do brakes so I learned that way.
