I had to have a long think about it all and decided to hold off on getting the bodykit parts from the breakers. My issue is that, there is no guarantee that it will all fit without any problems to the car as it depends on condition, which I can't assess myself from a visual inspection. At the best, it's a gamble to get all the parts and I know myself that I will not be happy until it's all there: Front+rear bumper, side skirts and spoiler. This would become costly very quickly.
I just picked up the from the independent local garage where the timing belt, water pump and rear bushes were done. The mechanic was very honest in saying that the rear drum brakes were still in good nick and they didn't bother changing it. The Ford garage had written on their report that it was 80% worn! I am not impressed about this tbh and I don't think I will be going back to the Ford garage in the future.
I decided rather to focus(pun intended) my efforts on making it a better driving car rather than a better looking one. Independent garage quoted me €180 labour to fit in the Bilstein B12 Eibach Pro Kit. According to them, there's nothing wrong with the current shocks and springs. But, I reckon they are past their prime with just over 110k miles on the clock. Plus, the car will drive better I think with the Bilstein on.
I will decide during the week on whether to go ahead with the above plan. Already ordered Mtec Front gooved and drilled discs along with Mintex pads. Also ordered a Whiteline non-adjustable rear Anti Roll Bar 22mm from Demon Tweeks, which should be over here in 2 weeks or so. The adjustable one has been discontinued by the manufacturer.
