hey buddy. i bought the whole rear bumper off the facebook buy and sell page

https://www.facebook.com/groups/802621073105584/

this cost me 110 delivered. i sold the spats off it as i didnt need them, which made me £20

i then took the diffuser to my local very good body shop (pearl paint i wanted it to be perfect first time)

this cost 80 quid

so all in it was 170 and the honeycomb plastics are marked in places. you can buy both parts straight from ford for about the same as i paid for my second hand bits. then the diffuser will need painting. or if you have a more standard colour, say white. it would be cheaper to paint, more around 50 quid or you could buy a used one for about 100 quid and bang it straight on.

I found that 2 aerosol cans and a tad of patience does a very good job at a fraction of the price of a spray shop.

And another bath as Mrs went to Blackpool and it was covered in sand

Could you please tell me the easiest way to fit the 'S' badge? I've just got a blue one for my Mk7 Fiesta ZS and I'm wondering how you get the nut tight enough on the back with having no way to get your arms up or down the back of the grill. Wouldn't want it to come loose, I'm thinking Loctite on the screwed bar into the 'S' part so it won't fall off on that front. Any help would be much appreciated :) Cheers!

simple to do i got the bolt where i wanted it behind the honeycomb and had two fingers or one (cant remember) holding it on with the other hand i then screwed mine onto the bolt till it was tight, no glue or anything was used and iv had mine close to 4-5 months its been through jet washes and had a sponge over it to clean it and stayed where it is.

sorry guys ive been neglecting the site, as ive had other stuff going on

 

thank you @OPLxx i love it, not looking quite this clean at the moment, due to weather/work/some ***** nicking my jetwash

the s badge, i find its easiest to make it up, poke i through then tighten the S from the front, takes a bit of trial and error to make it straight, but easier than taking things apart

the fiesta is more the family wagon, the proton is my daily and my toy.

took it pod last month. met some old proton friends and took it down the strip. a tidy 19.18 🙂

plan is to work on the chassis and do some gymkhana track days with it, then swap the engine to something a bit quicker
