#407547 Mk3 Mondeo Build Thread

Posted by Ben87 on 08 September 2014 - 09:34 PM

Cheers for the comments Gforce :-)

It's like your reading my mind lol got a set of headlights sat here stripped down ready for being painted black just not sure which chrome indicator bulbs I need for the clear look?? Any help would be appreciated.

Going be spraying the grilles and surrounds black too hopefully in the the next month. I have been thinking about painting that bottom lip black and now you've mentioned it I'm gonna get it done ;-). Think it should look pretty good.

Haven't got a link because I bought them when I first got the car but luckily I've found the receipt. They were off ebay, the make is AutoArt, part number FO-319. The seller was called Subzero Automotive.

Hope this helps mate.

Just a small update on the mondeo finally got round to fitting the triple r composites splitter fully, really like the look of it but have to be careful when manuvering in certain places lol.

Couple of pics to show.

So the front splitter arrived today and I couldn't wait to give it a trial run fit to see what it's going to look like

I apologise for the bad use of gear oil tubs it was the only things I could find at the time to prop it up with lol.

Will hopefully get it fitted next Saturday when I'm off work.

Hi foca, thanks for the comments.

No I'm not offended by your comments mate every one has the own taste on things would be boring if we all liked the same stuff.

I don't think I'd remove the rear wiper I use it too much and would definitely miss it if I got rid.

Yeah I've never been a big fan on dark tints, like you said sometimes it can make it look like a van.

It's a 5 speed, EGR is at the front and I think it's a fixed vane turbo.

I've now removed the EGR pipe completely and blanked both ends.

Been looking at your thread build and I have to say it's very impressive, alot of hard work has gone into it.

Bit of an update the power fold wing mirrors finally arrived and got them fitted a couple of days ago. At first they didn't work but some help off you guys the right relay was ordered and they work a treat. Will be adding some LED bulbs in the puddle lights very soon.

Also I had the rust on the roof fixed yesterday so hopefully next weekend I will be getting the roof, wing mirror covers and boot spoiler wrapped in gloss black.

Will get some pictures on when the wrap has been done.

Won this the other too on eBay. Picked it up last weekend

Plan is to get it powder coated the same colour as the other wheels and swap with a slightly buckled one on the car and to have the other as a full size spare in boot.

Hi, I've been a member of this site for a while now but have never put on anything of my car so I thought I'd give it ago today :-)

It's a 2.0TDCi 115bhp that started out as a bog standard Mistral model.

I got the car 3 years ago which at the time had full leather in (installed badly by previous owner), catback powerflow exhaust twin exit, front bumper changed for a zetec s one and rear bumper to a ST one and ST alloys.It didn't take long till the modification bug came and got me!

This is a list of what I've done over the last couple of years:

Lowered on Eibach springs
Powerflex rear subframe bushes fitted
Powerflex front anti-roll bar D bushes
Zetec-S sideskirts
Full interior changed to half leather including door cards. (Taken from an 07 plate mondeo titanium)
Rear Windows converted to electric
Decat pipe fitted
K&N panel filter
Interior bulbs changed to LED including boot
Front sidelights, front foglight bulbs and number plate bulbs changed to LED
Chrome door weather seals fitted
Alloys powdercoated black
EGR blanked
Remapped
Bigger intercooler fitted
Turbo rysanator removed
Silicone turbo hoses fitted
All speakers upgraded

Plans for the next couple of months is too have the roof wrapped in gloss black as well as the wing mirror covers, paint all grey exterior plastics gloss black and custom fit some mudflaps (ford original hopefully)

Would be good to hear what you guys think of it and any suggestions on what to do next.
