I agree... Think I will order some black silver ones same as front and rear Ford Badges.

Getting the remap done at Collins Performance in Macclesfield. Did the ST for me. Having the DPF and Cat removed with a custom AAS pipe at the same time! :)

That is looking particularly sweet.

Loving the black lower trim, certainly makes the front look very Evo'ish.

They made me this:

Unfortunately they couldn't make the De-cat pipe. They said it was far too complicated and too many tight bends.

When I arrived I saw this...

You're build is looking fantastic mate,

If I was you I'd have the louvers in the bonnet done gloss black aswell as the rear diffuser section

Also a set of mud flaps to protect the skirts and rear bumper,

I know ford don't make these for the body kitted models but a company called focus essentials on Facebook manufacture custom fit sets for the focus, the same set fits the Zs,ST and RS so they may also fit your Mondeo, I've had a set fitted for over two years now and there still 100%

Interesting ideas! Might use some vinyl to do the louvres first...

On another note... Just ordered this http://www.autospecialists.co.uk/Airtecs-Mondeo-Mk4-2022-Diesel-front-mount-Intercooler-upgrade-Product-1074.html for £350 delivered direct from AS. :)

So the intercooler arrived the day after I ordered it... Barely 24hrs ordering to delivery!!

It was packaged in 3 boxes. Well protected.

Only there is no Airtec logo on it... So decided to do my own.

Firstly printed off the logo onto A4 paper... Then stuck it to some vinyl I had. Then cut out the letters to give me a template.

Then used a sponge and some of my calliper paint to dab the paint on.

Waited overnight then peeled it off to reveal...

Pretty happy with the results. Have made sure its the right size to be seen between the parking sensors and grill.

Will be fitting tomorrow!

So I decided to fit my spangly new Airtec Intercooler today.

I jacked the car up using the jacking point... only to hear creaking and a big bang. Looked under and found this!

IMG_1549.jpg

WTF!! Not happy.
So decided to carry on anyways. Took forever to strip the old
intercooler out. Stupid ford putting the jubilee clip screw on the top
of the pipe... completely inaccessible from underneath. But I persisted
and finally got if out.

IMG_1546.jpg

Then
offered up the Airtec to find their is no way on gods earth it will
fit. At this point I had had enough and decided to have my lunch and
come back and have a look to make sure I wasn't being a divvy! But
no...Not only is it too tall and wide, but it fouls these... (Look in the hole where you can see the ground... there is a square bit o plastic)

IMG_1561.jpg

(Top of the pic)

whatever they are??

Just not enough space...

IMG_1554.jpg

IMG_1562.jpg

So my favorite task... put every !Removed! thing back again. Cue cursing, scraped knuckles and thing getting thrown around!!

So basically my only day off in 14, and I have fitted 4 well nuts and my newly painted fog lights!

Today John-ST3 has worked a miracle and fitted the Airtec intercooler.

The 2 radiator spacers were quickly removed with a deft twist of Johns hand.

We
then looked at the space... now wide enough... but not tall enough.
John got his hammer... and removed the entire air feed from the top of
the intercooler space. In Fords wisdom they decided to fit the 3 foot
air feed all the way along the top of the intercooler...

IMG_1559_zpsb1a1c47c.jpg

IMG_1560_zpse4803df9.jpg

(See the black flexible tubing along the front... which actually takes air from the engine... not from the grill??)

as opposed to a 6" tube to the grill in front of the air box... genius!! So the lot was stripped out and binned.

So this was the space left...

null_zps6ce1776c.jpg

null_zpsa1a058ee.jpg

From
here it was relatively easy going. The Airtec fitted easily in the gap.
Everything bolted up. Now the Airtec is only fixed from the 2 mounting
brackets at the bottom. So the top flops around and clanks against the
radiator. WTF were Airtec thinking of??? Not impressed. Eventually a
bracket will have to be created to go from the horn mount on the top of
the intercooler to the front crash bar. For now a couple of bits of card
jammed in stop it slapping around. Airtec/Auto-Specialists will get a
call regarding their diabolical fitting instructions and poor stability!

But
its all fitted. Throttle response is a tad smoother, but should notice
more difference once mapped and de-cat and DPF delete pipe fitted.
Forgot to take any pics of it fitted... will get some soon.

Also new wheels should not be far away... watch this space!

Big thanks to John-ST3 (Again)!!
