Fiesta ST Update:- Front Numberplate Fixing

So, sice i've owned the car this has annoyed me since the dealership screwed the holes in the numberplate/front bumper in the wrong place. It would be fine though since I replaced the plates they never screwed in again poperly as there is nothing to support the on the other side of the bumper. Sticky pads didnt work for me as the bumper is curved and the screw kept popping out...

88

89

Unfortunately to get a nut on the back of that nylon screw meant either taking the grille off or the whole front end. The grille however does not pop out easily like on my old MK7 ZS...so whole front end it was...

90

92

91

Eventually managed to get a nut tightened on the back of each numberplate screw so now they are pulled in and nice and secure...

93

A big job (2.5hours) for something very small that most people wont notice but always annoyed me. At least I've had practice taking the whole front end off for when I eventually get a new untercooler!! :rolleyes:

Thanks!! Appreciate it!! Still a few more bits to do before the end of the year, so keep checking back. As for the eyebrows just

a bit of masking tape first then vinyl along the line then peel the tape off.

The rear lights i took the electrics out of the ST light cluster and retrofitted them into the mk7 led light cluster. Brake light connector fitted straight into the led cluster though, no modification needed.

Hope that helps!! :D

So it's been a while since my last post and that is because...alas I sold the ST for something a little bit more grown up. as the following pictures show. His name is barabbas, and he and I will be getting acquainted over the next 12 months! Sad to be leaving the blue oval crew though! :(

For those of you wondering how long I had it, I walked into ford one day and place the order for the ST, The following day they confirmed it and that the build was starting, 95 days later I drove the ST out of the ford garage....and then 82 days after that I drove it back in and handed the keys over! :P

mate,

There is no need to be nice by writing "banter" in brackets.

This guys fiesta looked sound when he picked it up from the dealer. Now it looks like it drove through his local halfords and got assaulted by every single piece of tacky crap that they have available.

Honestly, I looked at these pictures, especially the roof shot, and it is well like some violation on any humans eyes.

It is each to their own when it comes to personalising cars.

Would I have done it to mine? No. But it is still nice to look at what other people have done.

I have to agree, looked well OTT and is a good lesson in proving that chucking money at a car but not choosing mods wisely isn't always the best route and less is sometimes more when it comes to modding
