#278453 James' Fiesta Mk6.5 Zetec S Tdci (Pic Heavy!)

Posted by james132 on 29 July 2013 - 07:16 PM

Thanks for the kind words. Makes it worth while when people compliment the car :)

No updates still :( I have a set of Heko wind deflectors on the way but nothing on the horizon unfortunately.

I was away racing this weekend. An average weekend I guess. Torrential rain saturday evening made it the worst night of my life.

Sunday morning the bike wouldn't run, combination of water in the electrics, very humid air so wrong carb settings made it a nightmare getting it running.
A new plug later and lots and lots of carb fettling it was running, just in time for practice.

Results: 

Stock 140 Class: Heat 1 - 5th, Heat 2 - 7th (with a loose exhaust due to a sheered stud in the head, causing lack of throttle responce!) Final - 6th An ok result, and good points towards the championship, this 'should' bump me back upto 5th in the championship.

Open class: Heat 1 - 2nd, Heat 2 - 3rd, Final - 3rd, Two 3rd's in 2 rounds is fantastic, and more silverware!




#267092 James' Fiesta Mk6.5 Zetec S Tdci (Pic Heavy!)

Posted by james132 on 11 June 2013 - 04:15 PM

Thanks!

 

The plastic strips along the side of the doors, I bought a set of them colour coded, so no longer the plastic look :)

 

As for the fogs, its just tint film which you apply with heat, you can find lots of it on ebay.
 

The bootlock cover was bought from someone on fiestaownersclub forum for about £3.50.
 

Nothing else has changed on the car since the last post, due to funds really, iv been racing a lot and lots of improvements still. Check out the youtube channel further above for the latest videos :)

Posted by james132 on 11 January 2012 - 03:55 AM

Thanks for that, those wheels look lovley!! Will keep an eye out once funds allow. Dose anyone know the pcd/offset etc for the 05 focus 5 stud wheels?

ST Dash Pod ?
some interior styling parts Click Here
ford badge brake light ?


ST Dash pod might be an option once you finish your guid B)

Il have a look at the interior parts, might not go so great with my interior though (dark blue leather and cream)

Im not sure if I like or dislike the brake badge light yet, it might grow on me ;)


#159879 Dent Cost?

Posted by james132 on 07 January 2012 - 12:11 PM

Just removed the 'GB' sticker on the rear of my recently bought focus to find this hidden underneath it!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

P*****d off is an understatement!

Any ideas how much this is going to cost to be put right?

Theres a small scrape on the rear bumper which I looked into getting re-sprayed which was going to cost just over 200, there is also a small scuff on bottom of the front bumper. So looking at it it may be worth a complete re-spray. If I was to go down this route what sort of money is it likley to be?

#159486 Colour Coding

Posted by james132 on 05 January 2012 - 09:02 AM

Just seen you have the lower part of the front bumper colour coded, I was planning on doing this however was told that it was a waste of time because the paint is always cracking off due to stone chips.

Whats your experience?
