Hi all, not been on the forum for a while having bought a Fiesta, sold the Focus and been mega busy at work.

Posted Image

One of the two together:

Posted Image

It was a miserable cold day but we still had a bit of time to look around and drive some of the awesome roads.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Theres a few niggles that need sorting with it which will be done when money allows. But for now im saving for the insurance renewal in a few months.... (This is not going well LOL!)

First mod was a bonnet bra... the bonnet has a couple of nasty stone chips in it which I cant afford to be repaird, so for the mean time, this will cover it up and make me feel better ;)


Posted Image

First time iv taken photos at night (Didnt go too well.. only 1 came out half decent) :


Posted Image

Beading shot :P

Posted Image

Painted front callipers:


Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

DMB overlays and boot lock cover fitted


Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Laguna splitter fitted (Worse job ever in below 0 temp on a stone driveway!)


Posted Image

Posted Image

Worth it though :D

Birthday prezzy from inlaws :)

Posted Image

Soon put to use: (went mad with pics)


Posted Image

This is the front wing polished and bumper not polished.. you can see the difference!

Will be removed again in a week or so's time to flatten off the lacquer and get that mirror shine. Quite happy bearing in mind it was my first time spraying anything... and it was only rattle cans too.

Mist jets removed from the focus before I sold it happen to fit the fez :) so they were colour coded and fitted too!

Cheers Paul. Its miles cheaper for me to insure... better on fuel and only £30 a year tax! Once its remapped it wont be far off the power of the focus too :)

Thanks. Theres not really many project threads on here... Should be a dedicated section perhaps?

The polish was only a quick once over.. it was about +1degrees with the threat of rain so rushed it quite abit, that blackhole polish is amazing though!

For the love of god please take that bonnet bra off. Bras are for !Removed!! A stone chipped Fiesta looks much better than one covered in that monstrosity.

But apart from that nice car ;)

Gotta side with nath on this one mate. Not liking the bonnet bra.

But apart from that, everything else is really looking bang on mate.

Liking it a lot. You've only just got the car and already done a fair bit so fair play. It's good to see you back on here.

Concerning the audio, have you got anything in mind concerning a new head unit?


As for project threads, mine hasn't been getting much views lately :( which is surprising since i've got a few more big mods out the way lately with my new head unit n reverse camera.

Im not overkeen on the bra... but think it looks alright. I dont often have it on to be honest, and tend to take it off for photos anyway.

Iv not got any real plans for audio... thats the last of my worries. Once everything else is done I wouldnt mind a double din and some upgraded door speakers. But im not a fan of subs and stuff on the parcel shelf- adds weight, looks bad and means I cant get as much gear in the back when im away racing.

Remap will be the next big thing, followed by 40mm eibach springs, and rear axle spacers. Keeping my eye out for ARB's going cheap too :)

Not much of an update to be honest. Ordered a bunch of small things on ebay (Prety much all under £5 so nothing exciting)

LED numberplate bulbs,
Couple of stickers,
Leather gear gator (Custom made to fit my richbrook gear knob)
Some radio keys so I can get the code off the back to generate a key code (Not got a code with the car)
And a few detailing bits.

Iv been eyeing up a set of 12.5mm rear axel spacers for it.. Think it would make it look alot better as the rear wheels look a little lost in the arches, will also improve handeling too.

Oh... And yesterday I bought my first californian scents air freshener.... OH MY! :)
