alright mate noticed that they gave you rubber mats, just wondering if you got the ford motorsport mats too as they come standard with the car.

Nice pics! I really like the de-tangoing. Something I really want to do on my front headlights but I don't have any pennies :(

they never gave me the ford Motorsport ones I did ask and they said the previous owner kept them and they can't get any replacement ones except for the standard rubber ones :(

and the bulbs are cheap as chips (will get the link for you when I finish work)

quick question how hard are rear light to detango? done the fronts but looked a hassle to get rears out lol

Really easy. Open the boot and remove the 2 screws from the light. Pull back the boot carpet so you can get your hand behind the light, there's a butterfly nut to unscrew with your fingers. Once done just pull out :)

as Nath Said, but the carpet was a pain to pull back, i found taking the centre plastic part on the boot (where the hinge is) off and then pull the carpet off like that.

Nath - Thanks for the guide, Really informative :) _ thats my weekend sorted :D

Im not getting email notifications when people reply to my posts??!!?? Can someone help me out??

I am getting the front fog light surrounds, front grille area / number plate area and lower mini splitter done gloss black along with the rear diffuser the same way. My local body shop are only charging me such a small amount to do it! :)

I love how the MK2 rs has had these done and I know that large car companies are saving money, but in my eyes (especially on the S1600 model) they should have been done this way from the offset :)

UPDATE::

Car is now fully De-Tangoed (pics to follow when I get a chance to clean the fezza)

and::

a random / small upgrade:

Horn.jpg

Horns off a Mondeo ST 220 2003

I believe that they use the same fitting as the Fiesta (will confirm this when I get around to fitting it)

Why am I changing the horns? - well I prefer a deeper tone horn :)

Will post some more pictures as i'm fitting it :)

I wouldnt remove the vinyl it takes away te character of the s1600. Check out my s1600 on the 'detaining + front and side skirt splitters' thread for sone good pics.

think keeping the vinyl is bit of an age thing, correct me if im wrong tho. i just felt keeping the stripes made the car look a bit young for me and only car that gets away with the stripes is a dodge viper. think it looks good with just the side stripe, as it still lets everyone know that its a s1600 but thats just me lolDSCF2255.jpg
