Supercharged Ford Fiesta MK7

Recommended Posts

So after owning my Fiesta for 2 1/2 years and doing multiple modifications I thought I better start a build thread on a Ford forum. 

I previously had a thread on the Mightycarmods forum but they had a system crash so that's gone. 

Anyway here goes.

I picked up my 2011 Fiesta Metal in panther Black back in July 2014 :O 

It had 13000 miles and here are some pictures of the day I got it. Also some pics of my old MK6.5 Style 1.2

Now I set about removing the headlights, I'm really not a fan of chrome so wanted some with black internals. These were on eBay so I snapped them up

Also fitted some interior footwell LED

Sunglasses holder- which was an absolute hell job. I think it was about 30C, it wouldn't fit properly, fibreglass everywhere. Awful. Just awful.

Next up I replaced the front grill with an Asian grill along with a Mountune short shifter which came in some interesting packaging.

The short shifter is a really good modification! One of my favourites

Mountune boot mat

Full milltek exhaust system: 4-1 manifold, decat and catback. I was never happy with the tips as they did not sit very well with the diffuser

Also picked up a gloss black asian grill

Mountune floor mats and some TRC side skirt extensions (it took me 2 years to get round to fitting those XD)

Next up I fitted a Mountune catback and MR155 diffuser (also discontinued)

Looks so so much better than before, and I was very lucky to find one.

Also a nice polish to rid of some swirls

I also dewipered the car and just fitted a bung to fill the gap.

That looks quick! Lovely note from the exhaust too, almost like a touring car but better really nice job you are doing there. I'm not a huge fan of the silver bits on the Asian grill but it certainly doesn't ruin it. Bet it handles well on those coilovers

Thanks mate. Yeah me neither, they will be getting done gloss anthracite like the wheels at some point. As will the fog covers just need to find the time.

Right time for some colour coding. Painted my front calipers yellow

And I also fitted the ST180 rear beam, along with HEL braided lines. Also needed the ST handbrake cable. All in all it was about £200 including beam, braided lines, handbrake cable and delivery from London! Bargain!

And of course painted them yellow too

Nice! I need to get around to painting mine red at some point! A simple enough thing to do but makes such a difference.

It does make such a difference! And it's pretty easy and relaxing haha.

I'm guessing you used a brush to do them (as oppose to spray paint) based on the minimal covering tape used?

Did you just paint straight onto the caliper or was there any preparation before hand other than washing them?

Yeah I just used a brush! 

I just used a toothbrush with water, then a steam cleaner to remove as much grime as possible. Then used some degreaser to rub down the calipers, and then painted them. I bought the paint from a company called brakecaliperspecialists.uk and it comes as a kit kinda thing.

Nice thanks! Sounds simple enough. I'll have to give it a try when I have some spare time and the weather plays ball!
