Picked up my new Mk7.5 Zetec S 1.0 EcoBoost in Race Red on Sunday.


Asked the dealer to not do anything to it apart from PDI it as I was going to detail the paintwork myself. Many thanks to Scott @ Arnold Clark for ensuring it wasn't touched. biggrin.gif


I've spent the last couple of days detailing it and she's in tip top condition. There wasn't too much in the way of contamination on the paintwork.

 

First thing I changed was the footwell and interior lights to blue LED's.

Then debadged the rear.

After :-

Then after 2 days of cleaning it's looking like this

Got some subtle mods planned for it.


Firstly to lower it on -35mm H&R springs same as my last Zetec S but I want to fit a set of Kaylan mudflaps at the same time. Patiently waiting for Performance Creations to develop these.


Hope you like and hopefully post more pics of some more mods soon.

I quite like them, and the main thing is to try and help prevent stone chips.

 

We've also got a Mondeo which has no mudflaps on it and the underside edge of the sideskirts are a bit peppered with stone chips.

Hi Rocky,

Nice looking car you have there. I remember the mods you did to your white zs so I cant wait to see what you have planned for this one. We were actually parked next to one another at crail a couple of years ago and had a chat about your exhaust.

Was the wiring already in place for the footwell lights?

Steve it's easy peasy.

 

Here's a link to the bulbs, they're from Hong Kong but very cheap.

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...#ht_1033wt_1170

 

or in red

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...#ht_1070wt_1170

 

Both colours look great in the Fiesta as I tried the red ones I have in my wifes Mondeo in.

 

Blue to match the blue dials or red to go with the cupholder lighting.

 

Pull out the old bulbs and pop in the new ones, job done.

 

If you still don't fancy doing it yourself, feel free to give me a shout.

Oh yes I do remember your forum name from when we were at Crail.

 

The wiring and standard bulbs are already in place as standard along with the red lighting around the cupholder which is a great improvement over the old Mk7.

I'll be changing the footwell lights when I get my car then. Nice and simple.

I would consider adding the ambient lighting at the glovebox too but I've not really looked into how plug and play this really is. Eg. Is the wiring already there and would the option have to be 'switched on' by a dealer. Im sure the information will be on here somewhere but I havent looked yet.

The black roof looks great. Do I also see some painted calipers there?

Much the same with me. Would like to do it but haven't really researched it yet.

Regarding the ambient lighting, it seems just a plug and play simple mod :) I keep meaning to get round to doing it too, here's the guide.
