  1. Hi All, Made two projects/builds on here before, nothing dramatic. Always wanted an ST and decided to get one as my insurance changed over at the end of January this year. Shoutout to TrustFord in Enfield for this! Was looking at trading in my Titanium for a new ST, then remembered the price difference. I then picked Stallone up for 13K with all the discounts and haggles etc taken down, only 8 months old! Comes with all the gadgets I had on the titanium, which I was used to (Auto lights, auto wipers etc.) but the heated seats etc. added to this just top it off! And then comes the power.. the torque it has is ridiculous, if you are in a position to get one of these, honestly.. just go for it. You won't be disappointed. List of things/idea's that I will/might be doing: 1. Upgrade all interior (courtesy, footwell, boot) 2. Upgrade number plate lights 3. Upgrade reverse lights (CREE LED)  need to add pictures 4. De-tango all indicators (rear, side and front lights) 5. Gel Overlays (Front, steering, boot badges, might do wheel centres and vents, ST Badges) 6. Smoke/Blackout lights/badges  sort of, will be re-doing these 7. Upgrade dipped beam to HID's 8. Upgrade Fogs to ??? 9. Black out alloys (plastidip or powder coat) 10. Induction Kit - J1 kit? 11. Colour coded pipes for engine (white/black) 12. Sunstrip 13. Hardwire a dashcam 14. Headlight brows  bought but not sure, needs painting as well 15. Blackout rear bumper, fog inserts, lower grill. Also paint the engine cover black/white. 16. Change the whole front headlight units (retrofit, blacked out, change the LED DRL for a more whiter look) 17. Mountune spoiler exhaust or RS spoiler, Maxton design do both of these. 18. Front & side splitters. Triple R looks pretty good. 19. Front bumper extensions or RS style front bumper. The front bumper extensions are done by fifteen52 originally, but both can be bought from Maxton design also. 20. Mountune/Revo/Peron tuning, remaps, exhaust etc. Mountune will keep my warranty, by Revo looks like a better deal, i've heard a stage 3 Revo and it was crazy. 21. Find matching keyring and smartkey cover. 22. Find matching dustcaps. 23. Add another rear fog light on the other side (not sure what side they come with but it annoys me that it isn't symmetrical. 24. Add rain deflectors for wing mirror's (not sure on these) 25. Add wind deflectors  purchase new ones? *Will be added a few updates to this post*
  2. So a few months back I purchased my first Ford, a Mk6 fiesta finesse, nothing to fancy as I was only 19 at the time (now 20). After gathering some experience with cars within my job (Halfords) and out of research I decided I wanted to make my fiesta something special to me, I'm still undecided on a full ST conversion or just to get the exterior and custom build/make the interior of my car. This was the week after I bought her, all cleaned, polished and waxed A few weeks later and after much research I found her a new set of wheels, The wheels need a reverb which I plan on doing myself but they do fill up the arches nicely compared to what it was before, a full list of planned mods and pictures will be posted
  3. Hi everyone, It has been some time since I have been on here and well I have dwelled into the route of modifying my 1.0 EcoBoost fiesta mk7. I have recently added a AirTec Front mount inter-cooler and a custom induction kit. I can say the differences are awesome so far! Im going to be going for a new exhaust system soon. Then going for a Re-map. After this all is complete I will be on ST standards or more with all the economical benefits. =)
  4. "FRANKIE LA FIESTA" Ford Fiesta / Titanium X / EcoBoost / Project Build Hello Everyone, Welcome to my Ford Fiesta Titanium X (Mk7.5) Project Build, I have owned my baby for the last 12 months since purchasing her she has done over 22,000 miles due to travelling to work and DJ Events. This upgrade project is going to last over the time span of 12 months and will be costing between £1,000 - £3,000. I am going to put aside £200 a month for the upgrades but I am wanting to fully complete the exterior modifications before summer.
  5. Hi everyone I'm new to the club as I've just bought myself a new ZS and thought I'd come to the experts on advice with how to improve it. I've already thought about Lockwood sill plates but can't decide whether or not to buy. The other major thing I'm looking to improve is the horrible yellow lights. I've been thinking about a 6000k HID kit for my dipped beams because I really like the white light, how has everyone else got on with them, have you failed your MOT? Please send pics so I can see how good they look. The kit I've found on eBay sounds pretty good and apparently they're e marked so they should be fine, could you check them out for me because I'm not really an expert aha. If you wouldn't recommend HID's what would you recommend, I'm not sure what to get for all my other bulbs, I'd like to detango my front indicator lights but not sure what to replace the DRL, side lights and fogs with (LED's a good bet?) Final thing I've thought about is a K&N Panel Filter but is it really worth it, will it improve my mpg or performance in any way or is it just a waste of time and money. Please give me other ideas, links and pictures along with your own past experiences to help me improve my car,I'll leave some pics for you to see it
  6. "FRANKIE LA FIESTA" Ford Fiesta / Titanium X / EcoBoost / Project Build Hello Everyone, Welcome to my Ford Fiesta Titanium X (Mk7.5) Project Build, I have owned my baby for the last 12 months since purchasing her she has done over 22,000 miles due to travelling to work and DJ Events. I had the choice of buying a new car or modifying my current Fiesta, So I have decided she is going to turn into a real beauty. As someone has got a brand new Ford Focus ST at work so I need to make mine look the part when parking next to his. This upgrade project is going to last over the time span of 12 months and will be costing between £1,000 - £3,000. I am going to put aside £200 a month for the upgrades but I am wanting to fully complete the exterior modifications before summer. **Please note that modifications list will change during the process of this project** ______________________________________________________________________________ Planned Modifications: Climair Wind DeflectorsFront Heated Jet Washers [Mist Type]'SiCo-Boost' Induction Kit LHD Hydraulic Bonnet StrutsZetec-S Top GrilleMk7 Clear Rear Spoiler Brake LightTriple R Composite SplitterSports Pedals Capping SteelInterior Plastics - Spray Gloss WhitePurchased / Awaiting Modifications: Automatic Boot Opening KitInterior Lighting [W5W LED RED]Paint Rear Drums BLACKComplete Modifications: Richbrook Anti-Theft AerialPaint Calipers REDAirtec 3D Keyring RED Ford Owner Club Sitckers3D Carbon License Plates [LEGAL]
  7. Welcome to my ongoing project with my 2009 MK7 Fiesta Zetec S. My 'motto' might change in the future, but I believe that "less is more"; I like to make small alterations and modifications to my car that improve its looks, but don't require many hours of labour or a ridiculous amount of money. I aim to provide links, approximate prices (not including postage where applicable), pictures and a short blurb of all the modifications to make life that little bit easier for those who might just be inspired. Here is my car when it was on sale, and after being thoroughly cleaned on 5th April 2015: As you can see, it doesn't look much different from the outside in normal daylight! However, the following modifications have been made... White Zetec S Rear Inlay £1.99 from DMB This was my first modification. Although it is beginning to peel slightly (I blame the pressure washer), I couldn't resist it to eliminate the red S on my blue car! S Steering Wheel Gel Badge £4.99 from DMB (product is now unavailable) Simply put, every Zetec S Fiesta should come with a badge like this. Passengers have commented on it and not even known it wasn't originally on the car! White Steering Wheel Gel Overlay £3.00~ from I wasn't happy that this one came through looking a bit pixelated. Still, from where I sit, it isn't that noticeable and it is a nice touch against the rest of the interior. Lockwood Door Sills £32.99 from Amazon Practical and good looking. What could be better? It also covers up a few scuffs on the driver's side that were on the sill and protects from further ones occurring. Aluminium Sport Pedal Covers £5.00~ from AliExpress Having decided £50+ for official Ford ones was not going to happen, finding these on the forums was too good a deal to miss. Delivery time was reasonable, too. Short Radio Aerial £5.00~ from eBay I don't use the radio in my car, so having a long aerial was not necessary. So, I swapped it for this one, which is much more discrete (but I do still have signal in my area if I did suddenly want the radio after all...) Ford Owners Club Stickers £3.99 from Mufflebox Why not represent the club? Attached on both sides, they make it obvious that I do rather like my car and, no, it is not okay to leave a dent in my car when you park next to it at Tesco... Numberplate LED Bulbs £2.50~ from eBay Every time I unlock my car, I love the white glow that appears at the back. Simply put, this modification easily contends for the best one I've done to my car. LED Panel for the Boot £2.99 from eBay Quite difficult to capture in a photo, but I stuck the LED panel just below the boot catch on the inside of the boot. I ran some wire round from the original boot light to provide the power. Despite being removed and adjusted a couple of times, the self-adhesive back is still going strong. At night, this boot light is simply brilliant. LED Panels for Interior Lighting £5.98 from eBay This required a little bit of rewiring, but nothing too difficult. Instead of a single bulb (and I did try with LEDs), I chose to add two LED panels to my interior lighting. These are brilliant. Enough light finds its way to the back seats and the front is suitably bright and white, also. Front Footwell Lighting Bulb holders: £2.79 from eBay Bulbs: £0.99 from eBay After some wiring extension across the windscreen and down the pillars of the car, I have fitted front footwell lighting. The bulbs I got for this aren't actually very bright. However, for this purpose, I find the brightness is perfect as it is subtle on feet and not blinding instead! LED Reversing Lights £5.99 from eBay I don't know quite what inspired me to get these. Needless to say, they look better when reversing, give out at least as much light and they look cool even when they aren't in use! "De-tangoed" Indicator Bulbs Front: £13.00~ from Amazon Rear: £13.00~ from Amazon Side: £2.99 from eBay I think the side ones, despite being the cheapest, are possibly the best looking! The front ones were a real pain to change, but all of them were worth changing. Whenever I'm behind another Fiesta, the orange indicator bulbs are always too noticeable for my liking! Cool Blue Intense Main Beam and Fog Lights (and LED sidelights!) Main (H1): £12.00~ from Amazon Fog (H11): £27.00~ from Amazon Sidelights: £0.99 from eBay It is hard to capture these as they are so bright! The colour of them is definitely whiter than the standard bulbs and both were fitted without much trouble. The main beam blue bulbs are slightly visible, though the colour goes with my blue car anyway! The fog lights and the full beams on dark nights are both simply brilliant; definitely an improvement. LED sidelights are also necessary and quick to fit. I did have to use some Amazon vouchers to justify the fog lights, though, as they are pretty steep... 6000K H7 HID Kit £12.00~ from AliExpress I was sceptical about fitting HIDs, but the forums suggested these. For the price, I had to have a go and I can say that they work very well. The fitting was okay and the light, spread, etc is really nice. I can't make comparisons against other kits and I know some are sceptical about cheaper kits, but I have run these for a two hour journey and they are still exactly as I fitted them without melting or blowing up, so initial signs are good, right? I also found them less tiring than my previous lights (Osram Nightbreakers, £17.00~ from Amazon) to drive home at one o'clock in the morning on the motorway. And not really a modification, but... Kingston 32GB Micro Duo Flash Drive £9.00 from Amazon A very fast and discrete flash drive for storing music on for use in the car. It has two ends; the other connects directly into the Micro-USB sockets on most current smartphones, which is also useful! Last updated 5th April 2015.
  8. I've had my Mk7 Fiesta for a little bit under 6 months now and I've finally have decided to make a build thread from the day that I picked it up the 16/05/2014 to now and for what ever modifications come after! I went and inspected the car on the 12/05/2014 at used car dealer in Melbourne (Capital City in Victoria Australia) and I was immediately hooked! I had the choice from either a Black WT Zetec which I had inspected earlier in the day or the Phantom Blue WT Zetec, (both Asian versions) and the rarity of the Phantom Blue immediately caught my attention. I had only seen about 3 on Victorian Roads since they were released so my choice was clear! The day I inspected and purchased the car. After cutting a few deals with the salesman I managed to knock the price down and get four brand new tyres put on with a replacement tow cover as the original was missing before i picked it up 4 days later. I went home that night and immediately ordered some new bulbs for it. Some super bright reversing lights and everything else needed for the front but in white. This is the new Fiesta the day that I picked her up. As soon as the new lights arrived I put them in so I didn't have to deal with the horrible yellowish stock lights! Unfortunately I don't have any photos documenting this but if requested I am able to show a comparison. Next thing on my to do list was pick a name for the little beast and the get some protection for her! So I fitted some weather shields and a bonnet protector about a week after I got her! And I decided on a name something close to her heritage. Phantom. Off to work now but I post some more later! - Tom

  11. Hello, I'm new to the forums and want to ask a few questions.. I have got a t2 rs turbo that I would like to add to a 1.6 cammed ka sport engine. I would like to know is there any way that the fiesta rs turbo would fit straight on to the ka engine? If not does anyone know who could possibly make a manifold or even what is the best way I can do this? I would be running low boost as this would be on standard internals? So far I have got the following, ford fiesta t2 rs turbo, boost controller, air filter, intercoller, need to get pipes and also an oil feed. Anyone know the best vaccume pipe to tap in too? Is there anything else I need? Any help will be majorly appreciated!

  14. Hello all, i made a post when i joined the forum a few months back and bought my car so i figured i would update everyone on my progress so far. This is my first car bear in mind and my first restoration project so please be easy on me on the progress so far! This is a few months work so it will include a lot of pictures and information, hope its not too long winded! So here is the car when i bought it, it's a mk2 1979 mk2 escort GL. Has been off the road for around 15 years. I bought the car without viewing and took the owners word that the car was solid and the floors where good. I later found out this was the sum total of rot on the car, the wing's where made of fibre glass and filler on the ends, the headlight surrounds where also rotten. Luckily the car came with new headlight surrounds to be welded on, a job i haven't done yet. The rear arch needed replacing but came with one already welded to the other side. The drivers side door was rotten beyond repair also, aswell as the footwell's and A pillar's having rot and bodged with filler and a "Rice crispies Box". I started upon the task of removing rust from the car, here's a few pictures of the work done so far, before and after shots. Slowly i've worked my way back on the car removing rust and applying rust treatment and cheap primer. Next jobs where to remove the old wings and work on the rear arch. This has recently been sanded down and primered but i don't have any shots yet. Once the wings where off we where able to find the full damage caused by the filler bodge on the footwells. That's unfortunately as far as i've gotten so far, now for the fun parts, I've replaced multiple things for this car so here's a list of them with some pictures.

It took a couple weeks to refurbish them to how i wanted, the coilover's where also pretty tatty so they also got a new coat of paint. before; After; And here's a before and after of the wheels. They still need a little work to be perfect but they look 10x better in my personal opinion. More miscellanious pictures of items bought. I hope that wasn't too long of a post, sorry for including so many pictures, i just thought it best to keep a record! I'm hoping to have the car completed by September if i'm lucky, for now i'll be sticking with the original 1300 crossflow engine i think. If anyone has any tips for restoration i would honestly love and advice you can give. Thanks for reading, i'll try keep it updated as i go.
  15. Hello, I'm pretty new here so i thought i would introduce myself. I'm 21 year's old and am yet to have my driving license but have always been a fan of old Fords! I recently purchased my Mk2 Escort GL 1979 on 12th of January 2013, i am in the process of fixing her up and returning her to her formor glory extremely slowly :). When i saw pictures of the car on ebay i was told it was "solid" i knew the engine was not currently in the car and it was a rolling shell with spares. When the car finally got home, i realised there was a considerable amount of things missing from the car which i am currently replacing, the car was also solid to a point. Some places being solid but filler, we chipped away at the filler on the front wings which is a common place for rust on these, it ended up looking somewhat like this when we where finished. After removing the interior, which was in pretty much brilliant condition we went about removing the doors, 3 of the doors where in good condition but the drivers side wasnt looking very repairable! After purchasing a new door last week things where starting to fall more into place and the grueling job of rust treatment and sandpapering could begin! We Sprayed on some cheap £1 primer to protect it from the elements, we managed to finish the bonnet and one of the gutters which where very rusty and dirty! This is unfortunately as far as i have got so far, it is still missing a lot of things. I'm not mechanic but i do have a skilled friend to guide me as a fix up "Wilson" as he has been christened :). Looking forward to getting this classic back on the road! :D
