My Dirty Diesel :)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have owned my little fiesta since march of this year and thought I would start a post about the changes I have/will make to her. Not much has been done to her yet, due to being on an apprentice wage, but getting there slowly. Hope you enjoy :)

Some pictures from when I first got her...







The first thing I did was the obvious but subtle mods which were; de-wipering the rear, adding an aftermarket stereo and wired my sub in. (haven't taken any pictures of the de-wipered rear or with the aftermarket stereo in) One of my bulbs went within the first week of owning the car, so I went and bought some cheap ice white bulbs from Halfords (hoping to upgrade to 10k watt HIDS sometime in the near future)

About 3 weeks into owning the car it got keyed, so I started doing bits and bobs to her to draw peoples attention away from the key marks and more to the beauty of her. I then added a few stickers to her windscreens; the standard ford owners club and a 'FYVE' sticker (my mates company) to the front window. A mapped midlands ZSoc sticker on the right hand side rear window and a K&N sticker on the left hand side rear window, and finally a ZSoc worded sticker on the rear window.

I then bought some DMB graphic overlays for the front, rear, steering wheel and wheel centres.


From this point on I decided to change the colour scheme from silver and red to silver and blue. So I decided to do something that I had been debating since owning the car and spray the fog light surrounds, I sprayed these metallic blue.



So I then went on to remove the grill, and change the colour of the line around it from red to metallic blue.

I then decided to spray a bit of the underneath of the bottom grill metallic blue.

Lastly I decided to spray the rear bumper/diffuser and tow hook metallic blue


At a trip out to a local car meet, I met the lad who used to own my car and he informed me that it had a re-map and it now apparently runs 120bhp instead of the standard 90bhp. I'm hoping to get her on a rolling road soon to see if this is true. I will put the dynamo results on the post after having it done.

A few pics of being out and about





A list of the mods I would like to do to her in order of preference;

Spray inside vents metallic blue

Spray all grills gloss black

Vinyl wrap her fluorescent blue or gun metal grey

double din touchscreen head unit

ST150 Splitter

10k HID headlights and fogs

Tint windows and rear lights

RS bonnet vents

Second stage remap (If it has already been remapped)

Twin straight through exhausts (one either side of the rear bumper)

That is it for all, I'll update this as I do things if people are interested.

Thankyou for reading and hope you enjoyed :)

Nice car mate, I understand apprentice wages, I have just finished my apprenticeship! Sorry to hear about the keying, people are always jealous of what other people have. Liking the colour coding, is a good way of making your car your own. Look foward to seeing more pics! :D

Cleaned the rear today as it was completely black from driving to Falmouth and back, the problems of owning a diesel <_< Took this as an opportunity to take a few pictures of the rear end, as I haven't done that yet.

I don't know why the pictures have turned sideways. sigh.


post-52837-0-62057100-1407165878_thumb.j personally my favourite rear of a mk6 but I'm just being biased

Also today I decided to spray the chrome surrounds of the air con vents. I first went to spray them with the same metallic blue as everything else and then soon found out it was the wrong sort of spray paint. So I nipped down to Halfords and picked myself up a can of blue paint specially made for PVC, I put 3 coats on and used this as an under coat. I then applied the metallic blue paint on top of it, purely for the fact I like the way it sparkles (sounds a tad !Removed! I know) Also this shows the gel overlay from DMB graphics that I have applied to my steering wheel.
