That looks superb! I hope your pleased with it because I certainly would be. I love the ST valance and the exhaust i think the combination really brings the rear to life.

The only thing im not too keen on is the S on the steering wheel as I like to keep things basic. But that's just me.

Brilliant work and look forward to any future progressions!

Might take a nosey.. These are quite good cheap wins. Hopefully be able to get some of these done. The magnet ones sound good

Done my attempt today and is on my build thread. That uses the adapters and solder as stated above. Comments welcome

That looks awesome.


Cheers buddy. Hardest bit was getting the cables tucked into the front seating so that they wouldn't be visible. I have got enough give to adjust the seating too :)

So tonight I did I cheap £4 in total mod that is completely removable if I don't like it.

I have introduced blue LED strips for front and rear foot wells through the use of 2 W5W adapters, 4 LED strips and loose cabelling I had in the garage.

What does everyone think?

All the cabelling is tucked under the dash and the strips for the rear are attached to the underneath of the seats. Cables have been tucked into the seat trim so they aren't visible or an obstacle for the runners.

Its more the cables under the bumper that I don't want to look untidy. I know you never see them lol but still. If I had the time to do it properly I would as I know I'd be anal about getting them trunked properly and ensuring that it looks tidy and OEM.

I'll take a look at those paints though. My fogs are in definite need of paint as they look so dated compared to the rest of the grills so might do it then.

Here's a photo of the motor now with the skirts on. Forgot to attach before.

Ill take note of the rear wiper ;) would you suggest gloss or darker black?

I keep looking for a LHD fog but want to find one ideally with a red bulb. I don't want to do a dual reverse mod really as the car is in brilliant nick at the moment and I don't want to start Frankensteining anything lol.

I've got some on order as I'm looking at doing some strips. I'm going to strip the cables back and solder to the strip. Should be adequate then I hope. £1.60 Hong Kong gamble isn't too much of a loss.

The strips look so much better than a single bulb though!

Looks great. Would it not have been more simple to use these however?

Been a month since I've done anything .. Jesus .. Well I made good use of my bank holiday folks and fitted my zetec s side skirts so it now has the full kit on and is looking pretty swarve (I know im bias hehe)

Now the kits all fitted I am looking at getting some mud flaps on and a custom exhaust by the time ford fair comes along. As long as the better half releases my funds :P

Thinking about doing some detailing this weekend to get it back to the standard it should be. Unfortunately going to have to be gentle with the front. For those that don't know. I've had to have the front resprayed again as the paint started to flake. Apparently the previous bumper owner used poor paint when they coated it. My point to the bodyshop was it should have been rubbed down to nothing and then primed and painted. Needless to say I got it done for free ;)

I probably will buddy. It is either one of these of one of the new AVIC series .. Depends how much bonus I get from work so see how it goes, if its as good as work make out I'll go for an AVIC.

Was the stem hard to wire in?

Hey Lenny .. I'm looking at buying the same radio as you. Only just noticed re-reading the thread its the one I want. Been looking for an android auto one.

Only thing is yours doesn't seem to meet the surrounding bezel.. Is this the case or camera shot? Also have you wired up the stem controls?
