Thought I would make a project thread on here

There seem to be a lot of Mk7 owners, so thought it might be of interest

So this is my old car [First Car]

Ford Fiesta 2003 Zetec 1.4 Petrol

I bought my new car in Dec 2009 with 9000 miles on the clock

First thing I did was change over to my personalised plate

I saved up for this before I could even drive :unsure:

Car got keyed :(

I would guess it was through jealousy as I don't think I have !Removed! anyone off that much

£250 respray for the whole side

Which I thought was quite reasonable

So I decided to make the most of the respray with a bit of cheeky colour coding

Panther black interior trim

I was intrigued as to what was behind the compartment under the stereo, so I couldn't help but to prise it open to have a look

After finding a one way catch on the "secret" compartment, I replaced it with a push-release catch

Made a custom aluminium iPhone holder and bought a Brodit ProClip dash mount

Moved aux lead so it came out above the phone holder

Hard wired iPhone charger to free up 12v plug and made it accessible from the "secret" compartment

Got my alloys powder coated in an anthracite colour

Also got a cracked alloy welded up and done too so that I had a full size spare

Next I fitted some upgraded bulbs

These bulbs were much brighter and whiter than my originals

I also de-tangoed the indicator bulbs

Sidelights - Philips BlueVision - W5W

I then sprayed the exterior plastics to match the alloys, the colour is a much closer match in real life, and they too look a lot better

I decided I didn't like the light grey interior

So made a few changes

Bought some Faux Black Leather off the Bay

Bought some Faux Black Suede from Dunelm Mill & got to work

The suede and panther black interior looks a lot smarter in real life

It's hard to take good pictures because of the flash etc
