well not touched the car in a while, the task now is to get all the bodywork done (proving harder than i thought)

however im picking up a ST spoiler and once the front and rear bumpers are sorted and the rust on my door sill hopefully that will be all the bodywork sorted, ready for lowering

(thats the plan) :D

also working on some side projects being the interior light switches leds, the dual reverse mod and also the engine pipework

Good news I think I have found a reputable bodyshop finally, the ST spoiler and rear tow eye cover are currently being painted and will pick that up on Saturday

Just received my CMAX clear high level brake light with connector and wiring, which I hope will fit in place of the ST brake light in the spoiler

Small patch of rust on the drivers door will then be sorted finally

well considering ive not being able to find the connector to complete the second reverse light mod, ive now got the part (thanks lenny) but ive since lost the standard rear fog light lens which i need to cut the bulb holder off :( so until that is found i cant complete the mod,

i have also added onto my list to paint my callipers, something ive not done before but having seen my m8s ST with painted callipers i think it will look ace

the beam pattern in the last picture is a little off, however i just realised i can swap the reverse bulb and fog bulb therefore the 2 reverse lights will be in alignment and look uniform.

unfortunately in the process of buying a house so the list i had of jobs to do before ford fair have now all but being thrown out,

i know what your thinking but dont worry the car is fine :P

bumper was removed to remove and re-attach the lower splitter

glad i did really as once we had removed the screws it just fell off :o so needless to say alot of tiger seal and some more screws later the splitter is well and truly stuck :)
