mk4 fiesta rust repairs

04 December 2008 - 05:48 PM

Hi all,
I have just recently embarked on my first project involving my now off the road fiesta.

I have had the car fo like a year now and despite the usual endura engine problem the car has been through hell and back and still kept me safe lol.
Any way it has been accumulating some rust for a while and took it off the road recently because their is no sense in paying for an mot when i know its going to fail. So i took it upon my self to stick it in the garage for now undertake most of the repairs myself with some help from friends and family.

Their is probs a lot of welding and cutting involved but that doesnt bother me as im quite handy and i know heaps of decent welders too. My main concern with regards to fixing anything is the floor. i have taken out the seats, carpet etc only to find a few rusty bits underneath and a few holes. My main question is how i should go about patching the bad bits of the floor PROPERLY. For added info the rest of the interior is fine as in the main framing etc.

Look forward to hearing your advice


finding paint code on mk4 fiesta

12 August 2008 - 09:24 PM

Hi all, im pretty new to this forum. so go easy on me hehe.

Any way i was wondering where i find the paint code? i know the colour i have is belladonna (the funny blueish purple colour) but when i went to a halfords up in aberdeen the young fella asked me for my paint code and i had no idea and i did look on the plate under bonnet but its all gibberish to me?

can anyone help me please? oh and i only know the name of the colour because the nice painter at my local ford told me after glancing through the window...more help than their stupid system that couldnt even tell me

Oh and can i still buy this colour from somewhere in tins? not spray can.

Thanks folks
