Yes lol , but she was really clingy to the Micra , i'm just in the process of ordering some parking sensors though haha , she is really impressed with it.

 

 

*EDIT*

Ordered the reversing sensors , in lime green , but also ordered the Squeeze Green paint to spray them.

Helps to keep her quiet for a while lol

haha , well at least i have something i can play around with , my Titanium X , theres nothing to do on it .

Lots of things i can add to the Fez , like lighting and bits of trim.

First thing is definatley the parking sensors , lighting , then anything else i can find in the Fiesta Mods :) , not my choice of colour so if i have to drive it i will wear dark sunglasses.

Excellent choice Paul,

Thanks Vicki , i can guide him how to fit a kitchen , you just take that card off him and go and choose one :) (Lennys not going to talk to me now).

 

It's not a bad colour actually , Hayley was out of my car beofre me looking at it , and no matter what other car i got her to look at , it was always going to be "love at first sight".

my mother has this exact car but with the spoiler. I must say it improves the look by 100% if your looking for a mod to do on it lol

Preee

Picked the car up yesterday , nice to drive , wife love's it.

 

Found out it has the Ambient lighting already in there , so i changed the foot well bulbs.

Sprayed the Parking sensors yesterday and fitted them today :) , but wow where the hell are all the place's to get a 12v ignition feed from , haha what a nightmare , i had to go to the 12v Aux for now until i get more time for the reverse screen.

Colour match for the sensors came out really well thank god.

Nice selection of mods you've done on the fiesta press,
Some team hecko's would look good too aswell as some Silva tec indicator bulbs to get rid of the fried egg appearance from & rear
Were there marking on the inside of the bumper for fitting the sensors ?
Nice colour match too, if gotta follow you fitting guide for h mk2.5 focus and fit a colour coded set.

looking good fella

Lenny , no markings inside the bumper , i just followed the Fiesta guide for fitting and measuring.

Didnt take you long  :D  B)

Job for today , was to replace the gaiter on the gearstick , had to remove stupid Staples to change it but all done now and looking much better the old one had a hole it it.

 

Second job was the Ignition key lighting. part that came that was meant to fit a Fiesta was too small , fitted in front  , stopped the key going in , so i removed the plastic section , wrapped in car fabric tape , used double sided taped and stuck it to the front lol , replaced the couling. it looks not too bad and lights up the key area.

Yes it's good to have something to play around with , i have had a mad buying frenzy on Alibaba just lately haha , it's so much cheaper than Fleabay.

Got some mudflaps and sill guards for the Fiesta on the way and some dooby twin brightness brake lights that replace the rear reflectors on the Focus , Dim is side light and bright is brake , very similar to the rear badge light in the way it works.

Looks good! Looking forward to the next instalment :-)

I hope your misses is appreciative of all this work you are putting in to her car :P

 

Now you have two fords to tinker with, lol.

 

Got any plans to carbon wrap the innards of the Fiesta yet? Or a boost gauge?

Nah once i have fitted the mud flaps and sill protectors that will be it :) for the Fiesta :)

 

Theres no boost from that 1.2 Engine at all haha

If it doesn't have a turbo then there won't be anything to create boost anyways,
But I'm sure y'all knew that anyways,

I reckon a 5" tacho gauge mounted on the dash would look sweet with a 1/2" shift light on the side,
And get a "Time Attack" vynil for the side of the car.

:lol: doesn't get any better than this universal listing,
4 in 1 five inch taco with shift light AND a 15 gallon boot mounted fuel tank,
Shir what more would you want.

Finally added the mud flaps looks so much neater with them on and a bargin £17 from China for all four. Of course should help to keep it a little cleaner , i had to cut out the rear clips and got some new ones off Ebay as i broke one trying to get it out.so i cut them off and replaced all four.
