My Black Zetec S Thread

Recommended Posts

Had my Fiesta ZS for a couple of weeks and started chipping away at some easy win mods. Got a few plans, here's my initial wish list:

S badge front grille - DONE

Debadge - DONE

Red footwell lights - DONE

Reg plate lights - DONE

Front lights and fogs (bright white) - Phillips diamond vision / osram

Detango - DONE

Detango Rear

Lowered - 30mm Eibach

Alloy recolour - Gun metal grey

Paint brake calipers red

Mountune... (Or maybe Bluefin!)

Clean plates

Here's a few pics of what's done so far:

Debadged:

Rear plate lights changed for White LEDs

Red footwell LEDs (bit disappointed with the spread on these)

Here's what I want to do with the wheels, think this awesome

I'd go gloss black with your colour. I looked a white ZS with gloss black wheels and the wheels did look lovely. They'd just be too much black for me on mine!

Yehh thinking that, i seen a white one on autotrader and it looked nice with the gloss black :) I do prefer the gun metal on the Prather black though, looks really good in my opinion.

Was it difficult to do the footwell lights? I've got a Zetec S on order and want to get these and the dashboard light done but dont have any experience with wiring etc.

Footwell lights are as easy as pulling out the old ones and slotting in the new - no wiring

I would go gloss black, think it would look nicer with the blue.

Detangoed the fronts today - amazing how much difference it makes. (It's also really easy - no need to remove the light, just whip out old bulbs and replace with Silvervisions)

Takes about 7 days delivery, these are the ones that will fill the footwell up.

Looks ace, so much better for a debadge and detango.

Cheers mate. Yeah it's coming along nicely... But slowly! I'm weighing up whether to Mountune it / save the money to put towards an st-3 in about a years time

It's been a while but got some Crystal Visions for Christmas so swapped them in yesterday... So much better!! No more dull yellow light.

post-51574-141984573587_thumb.jpg

Got some W5W sidelights in the pack too which look great when you unlock the car...

post-51574-141984578351_thumb.jpg

De tangoed the rear lights too but haven't got a pic of that.

It's coming along nicely.
