Keeping a close eye on ebay is the way I think, Hyrule (Ben) has just sourced the front/rear lower bumper extensions and got some good deals.

Just realised yours is a pre facelift, there was no zetec s so the bumper extensions etc are not going to work on the front. I would say your only option is mk2 ST bumper on the front, I believe the mk 2.5 rear bumper is a straight swap so in theory you could fit a 2.5 zetec s rear bumper.

I would start a new thread on it or your own build thread so it can be discussed on there, otherwise my build thread is gonna go off on a mad tangent about your mods :P

Well its the old girls 4th bday this week, so I treated her to a full exterior detail.  Got through the MOT on Wednesday no problems, and over the last 3 days I have been detailing (can't do too much at once due to a bad back lol).
 
So the process was 
 
Full wash using 2 bucket method 
Rinse and dry using a Asda microfibre drying towel
Full clay bar using Meguiars smooth surface clay kit 
Polish using Auto Glym SRP and Auto Finish super resin polish (ran out of SRP half way, but actually thought the Auto Finish stuff gave better results).
2 coats of Meguairs NXT Tech Wax 2.0
Wheels where polished and then given a coat of Amorall Shield wax.
Glass cleaned  with rain x class cleaner inside and out(glass clayed too)
Black plastics done with poundworld (lol) Carpride Tyre Shine  (find this gives really good results)
 
Car has come out really well, some detailing purists/fanatics might laugh as some of the products used, but I find you really don't need to spend the money to get decent results - well not for a car that's in use everyday! Took a few pics but they don't really do it justice as I only have a phone camera at the moment.

Going to do the interior, tomorrow, but nothing to write home about as I keep on top of that on  a weekly basis anyway.  
 
Also got rid of my waterproof seat covers, I was finding the smoothness of them was meaning I was sliding out of the seat  when cornering (not holding me in place so to speak), since removed the car feels alot better/more fun to drive.
 
I might paint the rear drums tomorrow if the weather holds out as that has been on my to do list since I got the car!

looks like you done a great job on the clean up fella.
once your megs nxt wax has run out get some ultimate wax the one in the black bottle as imo its much better then the nxt tech wax and should bring out the colour more
how do you find the amorall shield wax on the wheels holds up?

80 quid all in. Direct from the sellers own website. They are 100 from the same seller on eBay. I will take some pics of the cabling install and post them too. Will need to wait and see if a get a letter making me to pay import duty.

 Higgsy, any chance of a link to sellers website for the DRL's

Oh and a link to the boot protector would be nice :rolleyes:
