post-43519-0-11254700-1390672258_thumb.j

I wasn’t 17 for 5 months so she sat on the drive getting used

once a week :(
she didn’t like that at all developed an oil leak and gearbox seals all went
easy fix but wasn’t what I wanted after having the car not even a month :/

I didn’t mod the car in anyway until I passed my test

(parents said no haha)

First thing was private reg D13 HPD

I didn’t really do anything big to start off with due to

spending money on a gf -.-

But woke up one day and decided no im doing what I want with

the car,

So started of with some DMB’s gels, I thought white would

look good on a blue car I was wrong haha, but left them on, i have some new black and blue ones to add after I've painted the chrome surrounds

Over time I changed the air filter, upgraded all the lights,

detangoed and leds installed, then got the asain grill with a tow strap, wind
deflectors,

The next big thing was upgrading the front brakes to the

bigger size and painted the callipers and drums at the same time, all ready for
the new alloys I got. 15’s went on nicely but I wish I got 17’s but I like them
and wouldn’t change them now.

Next was the tinted lights, done all round front and rear,

but after a couple of months the fronts stated to fade and I noticed they wernt
helping the light output and also got a note on the mot they were border line
failing so they came off. Left the rears on tho.

I colour coded the interior and got that looking nice, am

very happy with the results still.

Also painted the mist jets, aerial antenna vision blue, I

then got some CSR headlight brows and painted them vision blue but I really
didn’t like them too much so they had to go in the end.

I installed some drls under the bonnet grill, but im

currently working to change them so they sit just under the headlights and glow
the headlights seen it done before and looks good, also got some drls to fit to
the asain grill at a later date.

Audio upgrade came about, I installed 6.1 speaker system 4

tweeters 2 pocket subs and 2 conical speakers all wired by a 1200w amp, im now
looking at maybe an under seat sub to go with it not sure tho.

I de-badged the rear as I didn’t like the style + logo and

added an s badge

De-tangoed the mirrors and wrapped the covers in gloss black

but im going to paint them at a later date, and also I wrapped the indicator
covers in fly eye kit.

Then got busy with some leds inside, fitted them on top and

underneath the glove box, in the drivers foot well, and under both the front
seats so the rear flooring is lit up.

also the led key

post-43519-0-84722100-1390674622_thumb.j

Sun strip was installed as I was peeded off with the high

sun in summer

I then installed some rear parking sensors after a little

incident involving a trolley a supermarket and me in a huge rage trying to park
and gf wining in my ear wasn’t too happy to say the least lol

post-43519-0-98176000-1390674217_thumb.j

Carrying on with the interior I installed the sports pedals

and the foot rest, followed by the lockwood dial kit looks amazing at night
now. Then wired up the new interior mirror the auto dimming one, cannot be without one now after using it in the early hours and late at night would defo recommend!!

post-43519-0-19913700-1390674385_thumb.j

Then got a local garage to lower the car with a set of

H&R 30mm looks good now

Xmas then came along, I got some projector headlight, with

hids installed, also got the bonnet protector on, and upgraded the number plate
lights to 5000k 24 leds set super bright now.

You almost certainly wasted the money on that air filter upgrade, otherwise it's nice.

alright they come wrapped up so first get them in the bulb holder then cut the cable tie just as the tops enter the light unit, a bit pushing and tucking in to get all the legs in and still in the holder but looks good when they are in :)

If you look up m8 i linked the ones i used and i will say they fit 100% no doubt but im not sure on these tbh as they dont specify a fitment ie i think the fiestas is a 380 double contact so im not 100% certain but they do look like the ones i got

sorry m8 forgot to add super easy to change :)
