It's A Fiesta Tdci Adventure! (Picture Heavy)

26 August 2013 - 11:10 AM

Long time stalker, time for a build thread!

 

This is the wee beastie the day I picked it up from Pentagon in Sheffield last year.

The spec from the dealer;

Zetec S 1.6 TDCi 95 2010

Leather

Illumination pack (LED gear knob & scuff plates, leather and chrome handbrake)

City Pack (Rear sensors, powerfold mirrors)

 

Mods so far;

Clayed and buffed.

Calipers and drums painted.

Red LED footwell lights.

Sony headunit retrofit (custom loom)

Infinity amp (stealth mounted)

RCA speakers converters

Infinity 17cm component with tweeters (OE positions) 

 

On the list;

EGR blanking plate (ordered)

O/S/F 'slightly' buckled - new alloy or replace with something not made of chocolate. (maybe these)

Sony speaker retrofit so I can use the amp to power a sub.

Remap. (Zoom zoom)

Paintwork mopped.

Cruise control retrofit. (once I find a cheap steering wheel)

Soundproofing and deadening

 

A summary of the 1000 photo's

Highlights so far;

Footwell LED's plug and play.

It likes a diet of Shell V power diesel and Millers ecomax (much less lag)

Fun and games figuring out the custom loom for the Sony (pre 2011 car with the wrong connections).

Sony HU much better than the standard but the standard speakers can't take the extra bass.

The tweeters are definitely the weakest part of the OE set-up.

Figured out a better way of running the amp power other than through the bulkhead.
