My Fez Named Melissa :)

Cheers m8 :) its got even better today, first thing went to the hired ramp and 5 hours later we have some updates, wipped the alloys off and done the braided brake lines first and bleed the brakes using the garages bleed kit soo easy to do, just keep topping the fluid up and sucking it out, also at the same time complety changed all the brake fluid to new and while she was in the air drained the oil and gave her a new oil filter and new oil :) i didnt take any pictures due to all the mess lol

Ive decided to get some different spacers as mine aint working for me, going for a set with longer studs and will get a garage to do it for me, will be selling my eibach pro spacers on eBay soon when i get them off as i forgot to today lol, im after £90-100 of anyone is interested 15mm not used for long 4 weeks max

Anyway next thing to tackle, was the exhaust and cut the old one off before checking the new one fitted woops lol, but it all fitted fine and sealed nicely :) also while my wheels where off i ran over to the garage next door and got my tyre repaired due to a sneaky screw sat in it lol

With the exhaust fitted its soo nice the revs pick up quicker and more sport tone to it, here's a little vid :).

As soon as i get it on YouTube ill link it,

So things to do, front and rear wheel spacer change, new locking nuts and covers, need t get the diffusor and wing mirrors painted, also tinted a spare indicator lense so will see what its like before doing the other side here's the pics

Then planning a boot light upgrade

and due fog lights

Well thats it for a while as i dont have any more funds lol will get vids and pics of exhaust later

That exhaust sounds amazing! Shame I couldn't insure one :(

What did you tint the mirror lenses with? I've wrapped mine but there not 100%

The reason i changed was the pro spacer sizes start from 15mm and it wasnt quite wide enough for the retaining nuts to go flush with the spacer so under investigation the wheel wasnt sitting against the spacer face it was laying on top of the nuts causing some marks and slight damage to my rear alloys so ive changed them to these well when i can get some one to fit them, they are hub centric still so all ok :) plus the spacers are still mint and would fit standard ford alloys perfectly just my alloys have a smaller offset so i need a small spacer, like merv went for 25 in the rears i went for 15 to get the same look thats coz my alloys offset is 10mm smaller than ford alloys, eibach do say when u buy them they only recommend use with ford original alloys

So they up for sale ;)

And the exhaust needs to be heard in person its mental! Pops as soon as you let off the throttle and bubbles in all the right places but the power comes on from 1800rpm all the way to 55 / 5600rpm i was in third overtoke a car on the way home yesterday and went from 40 and by the time i changed up i was at 85 so its good haha

I personally wouldnt touch any lights bigger than the side indicators getting an even coat was hard enough on these little things, i was going to try fogs next but not sure, i still dont know if with the tint on they produce enough light to be legal :/ but i wouldnt touch main front or rear lights tbh its a bugger to get of again and if its runs its really noticable

I'm gonna get the LED smoked rear lights and I think I'll just wrap the front lights, might get some spray tint for the side indicators as it'll look better than the wrap

post-43519-139966647555_thumb.jpg

post-43519-13996664836_thumb.jpg

For £9 its not bad better than £450 on samico hoses!!!

Also the drums are now painted just drying in the shed till tomorrow and I'll put them back on, also had a look at removing the rear studs and you need a press which i dont have so its a garage job shouldn't take them too long wheel and cover off, then press the hub off knock all the studs out new stud in press hub back on, cover on then spacers and wheels what like 2 hours labour max??

Only thing now is she needs a clean lol

Doing the boot light tomorrow and all the little painted bits then that should be it till i get more things in the post lol

They look really blue but you can hardly see them behind the alloys so all good :) also had a look to see if i could remove the hub and change the wheel studs myself and found out you need a hub press -.- all the bolts all come out ok its just wedged onto the drum so you need a press fun times lol will get a garage to do it after my holiday :)

Also painted these

nice to see what can be done too the little fiesta, I have the same Vision blue 3door as you do and its great to see how the parts look before I fit them ;) I won't be going all out like you do, but I have ordered the Gel badges in the same blue/black colour, I have the Titanium so for now I will keep the Crome surounds on the the badges, I think it kind of fits the crome around the windows, so when does the body kit arrive? :P

I was looking at those gel badges, was woried that they wouldn't fit in with the Vision blue colour, but after seeing your pics, I'm glad I purchased them, you upgrading to the ST??? would have loved to do that here, but our prices in SA are just to sky high for me to part with so much cash.
