Quick Update:- Gearing up to get the new exhaust system fitted but got up this morning to find the 2nd problem I've had since I got the car...

 

Boo!! Flat Tyre...

62
 
Wheel Off...
63
 
And that the culprit...
64
 
 
Patched up to allow me to get to the exhaust fitting garage on Monday, however the inner wall of the tyre has been shreded by the alloy so gonna need a new tyre!! :(  £116!! So by the time I'm finished with the exhaust fitting on Monday, my local tyre garage will have taken delivery of a new tyre for me so will have stop in on the way home to get it fitted.
 
Question is...will have have the discipline to NOT boot it on the way home and wait until I get the new tyre fitted?  :D  :P  :unsure:

Quick Update :- Video of yesterday to follow later on today...just taking a little while to put together...

 

In the meantime, A quick little mod I did yesterday evening after a thorough car cleaning. Already replace the original RHS boot light with a large LED panel light...so yesterday evening I retrofitted the boot with LHS white LED's...

Update:- So over the last 48hrs there have been some huge mods to Felicity and hopefully by tomorrow lunchtime I will have a video up plus lots of new pics to show you all. Even more exciting is that before the week is out I should have some pics to post of a small unofficial FOC Fiesta ST meet in Sheffield. Lots of exciting stuff to check back here for, but until then here is a cheeky pic of the final touch I made to felicity at the end of the day today!!

Check back soon! Peace! :P

Wow, starting to look like a track car now.

 

How is the ride on the new springs? I thought it was pretty hard stock, didn't think it could be lowered anymore...

Hi, thanks!! its slowly getting there!! you can always go lower!! haha! :D If it aint scraping it aint low enough!!

 

well I was gonna go 60mm but thought it would be too low to get onto my drive etc. Its a tough ride from time to time with pot holes etc but on the whole its not too bad!!
