Thought so, good bargain there ...

To be honest with you I was one making an offer but only because I would have to sand them and respray them... I am just going to pay an extra £50 for brand new but primed so I just new to spray ..

you got a deal though as they are the right colour for you already and can just go straight on

Least they have gone to a good home :-P

aye mate thought it would put a few people off having to have em sanded back n resprayed. thats why i couldnt believe my luck at finding a complete set ready in my colour

 

just really wish i'd have seen the listing literally an hour earlier as i'd just finished fitting the MS skirts

 

i actually did make an offer lower than 150 n it was accepted :P

 

definitely gone to a good home i must say myself. had a good chat with the seller too n showed him everything else i'd done to the car. top bloke, he drove an hour to me from birmingham

Wooo my photos are back up

 

As my car is nearing the end of what I plan to do with it, I'm gonna put up a quick before and after to show the transformation so far from the day I bought it

To finish it off now I need to get some black LED tail lights, Alloy wheels (thinking either ST or mondeo titanium x sport packs) and some sort of exhaust whether it be working or dummy to fill the cut outs in the rear bumper. Maybe an st rear diffuser too

 

 

Oh and as mentioned the side skirts will be coming back off in the coming weeks and will be replaced by these

I'm also awaiting some head light brows

The brows arrived today, delivery was rather quick ish I think considering they came from sneaky Poland.. I say sneaky because I filtered ebay results to show UK only sellers and the brows got through the filter, as the seller put that they are from UK, but then I clocked the delivery method was listed as from outside UK and it's not till you click company details right at the bottom that you see they are based in Poland. Nether the less delivery was reasonable quick and the quality seems good for what they are.

 

I will be colour coding them at some point but till I have the time and as they come ready in gloss black I've just stuck them on as they are for now using just the attached sticky pads. Seem to be holding on pretty firm so I dont think i'll be silicone them on just yet.

 

 

Went a bit mad with the photos cause I'm really liking how the front end has come together

Really thinking the bonnet needs summin. Trying to work out if a bonnet lip would fit as I've seen they fitted to pre facelift ST's before

 

 

I fancy some grey checks or OTT stripes but the Missus wont allow it

 

 

Comments welcome

Couple kind of mods carried out

 

For as long as I've had the car I've not liked the idea of having a dangerous space saver spare wheel. Obviously to have a full size spare I need the boot inserts to deepen the wheel well. These have proved difficult to find but I've now finally got hold of them, complete with a brand new full size spare fitted with a brand new goodyear tyre. Paid 70pounds for the lot which is great value I think considering the tyre alone is gonna be worth more than that

 

2013-11-27212557.jpg

 

Making good use of the inserts tidying away all the loose stuff usually rolling around the boot

 

The original boot carpet was now too big so I bought a smaller sized boot liner with carpet insert.

 

2013-11-27212939.jpg

 

I've now lost a lot of boot depth though and I've still got bulky items that always live in the boot

 

2013-11-27214249.jpg

 

So now if I need to put more than the usual weeks shopping in the boot or if I go on holiday or have to work away I'm gonna have to put the boot back to stock and revert back to the spacesaver which kinda defeats the point of converting to a full size but I'll need the extra boot space back

 

 

The next mod I've carried out I place the blame entirely on Hyrule as it's his fault for linking me to it but here it is

Please excuse how filthy the car is at the moment. Work has been quite hectic, its rained like mad, I've been driving up n down the country daily and I've covered many many miles on country roads so as a result I've been unable to clean the poor girl in a couple weeks.

 

 

And what would of been another mod is I've purchased a bonnet lip, only thing is it's turned out to be a couple inches too small. Not sure whether its from a facelift or a pre facelift ST. So if anyone wants a bonnet lip lol..

Again excuse the dirt
