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.autospeci...oduct-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!

 

 

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.

 

 

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)

 

 

 

(Top of the pic)

 

whatever they are??

 

Just not enough space...

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

 

Not happy in the least. Have messaged John-ST3 who is going to have a look in a few weeks.

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_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)!!
