Spare Wheel Well Material

12 July 2014 - 08:28 PM

Hi folks,

Does anyone know what kind of metal the spare wheel well is made of? Is it a weldable metal?

I'm looking to reposition the well for a modification I have planned, so that it's more central. Don't know if it's possible yet, or the extent of work involved. Just trying find out if it's feasible!

EDIT: it's a mk7 fiesta if that makes a difference.


Fiesta Mk7/7.5 Gear Knob

05 July 2014 - 12:58 PM

Hi all,

Quick question - is there a black, 5 speed gear know available on any Fiesta? I've got a mk7 with silver interior, but I've sprayed the rest black. The gear knob is the last to be done!

I'd prefer to keep things as stock as possible and get a black one from Ford, rather than get an aftermarket (universal) one.

Any help is appreciated!

Hi guys,


Think it's about time I started one of these!


Just over a year ago I decided it was time to say bye to my old Alfa 147, came across this beauty and was sold instantly! Fiesta ZS 1.6 TDCI

First thing to do was match the badges with the rest of the car (the start of the colour theme!)

Decided to finally get rid of the silver trim inside, finally got hold of the Asian grill (+ a wee spray and here is the finished result inside and out!

Also had Eibach 30mm fitted all round (no pics of that)


I have a video of how it sounds, but it's too big to upload straight to here so I'll put that up in a bit

Centre Console Removal

14 August 2013 - 12:31 PM

Hi all,


Looking for some help with removing the centre console. Mainly the plastic surround of the handbrake?


I took the stereo surround off to paint and dropped one of the clips. Pretty sure it's rattling around under the handbrake.


Any hints or tips would be appreciated.
