Hi,

Some pics of my car now lowered on -35mm H&R springs and I've also fitted some mudflaps from Performance Creations at the same time.

#287483 My New Race Red Mk7.5 Zetec S Ecoboost

Posted by rocky1722 on 03 September 2013 - 08:45 PM

Hi Rocky,

Nice looking car you have there. I remember the mods you did to your white zs so I cant wait to see what you have planned for this one. We were actually parked next to one another at crail a couple of years ago and had a chat about your exhaust.

Was the wiring already in place for the footwell lights?

Oh yes I do remember your forum name from when we were at Crail.

 

The wiring and standard bulbs are already in place as standard along with the red lighting around the cupholder which is a great improvement over the old Mk7.




#287460 My New Race Red Mk7.5 Zetec S Ecoboost

Posted by rocky1722 on 03 September 2013 - 07:55 PM

Picked up my new Mk7.5 Zetec S 1.0 EcoBoost in Race Red on Sunday.


Asked the dealer to not do anything to it apart from PDI it as I was going to detail the paintwork myself. Many thanks to Scott @ Arnold Clark for ensuring it wasn't touched. biggrin.gif


I've spent the last couple of days detailing it and she's in tip top condition. There wasn't too much in the way of contamination on the paintwork.

 

First thing I changed was the footwell and interior lights to blue LED's.

Then debadged the rear.

Then after 2 days of cleaning it's looking like this

Got some subtle mods planned for it.


Firstly to lower it on -35mm H&R springs same as my last Zetec S but I want to fit a set of Kaylan mudflaps at the same time. Patiently waiting for Performance Creations to develop these.


Hope you like and hopefully post more pics of some more mods soon.

Fitted my Rally Flapz :-D

Very nice. ;)

 

Stephen, I've spoken to Ian from Performance Creations previously about mudflaps for the new Mk7.5. Are these the new ones made specifically for the Mk7.5 or are they a set of Mk7 mudflaps modified?

 

Want to get my Kaylan mudflaps on as soon as I get my Mk7.5. :)

#77734 Mudflaps For Zetec S Mk7

Posted by rocky1722 on 13 April 2010 - 08:39 PM

Fitting the front mudflaps :-

We fixed the front brackets on with x3 self tapping screws.

Again like the rear and using a piece of wire hooked at the end and dipped in a bit of paint we marked where the x3 holes should be drilled through the mudflaps.

After the x3 holes are drilled, fix the mudflap in place with the bolts and washers provided giving you this.
Posted Image
Note how we've drilled into the plastic end cap that covers the end of the sideskirts and fitted a plastic fastening for extra securing.

And finally the finished article. (Note how the mudflaps appear to be a bit bendy looking. I think some of that is down to the mudflaps having been drilled to fit my original rear brackets which stuck out too much. Having made suggestions to PC new modified brackets have now been made for a better fit. If my mudflaps had been drilled to fit the new brackets I think they would have fitted slightly straighter)

Hope this helps, if unsure I'm sure a local garage would be prepared to fit them for you.

Cheers,

#67238 My Mk7 Zetec S Lowered On -35Mm H&r Springs

Posted by rocky1722 on 25 February 2010 - 09:15 PM

OK here's the ACTUAL drop on a Zetec S with the -35mm H&R springs fitted.

My car has been lowered by -20mm all round.

I take it this is because the Zetec S has already got sports suspension fitted from new which must be @ -15mm.

If these springs were fitted to a base model Fiesta you would get the full -35mm drop. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I'll re-measure in a few weeks to see if the springs have settled any more.

Stephen.

My Zetec S was lowered today on -35mm H&R springs, I'm really liking the look. Just low enough to make a difference from looking standard :D as I have lots of speed bumps to tackle everyday on my road. :angry:

I've set the pics out with a before shot followed by an after pic for comparison. Hope you all like. ;)
