New Fiesta Zetec 1.0 Ecoboost

Recommended Posts

Just joined the forum after browsing the past few weeks for ideas etc and finally got my fiesta last week after waiting since passing my test December! 

Went for a 3 door zetec in black with the 100ps ecoboost engine and Nav. Plenty for my first car!

Decided I wanted to do some cosmetic mods just to make it look abit nicer and I'm very much into my detailing, so started with a good clean yesterday using a autoglym set with SRP and EGP.

Then decided to start little mods so started by a full LED interior bulb change, all white and also changed number plate bulbs to LED.

then ordered some team heko deflectors off amazon and stupidly without noticing ordered 5 door deflectors that come as just a 2pc just for the fronts so they're too short! In the process of returning them but have ordered some correct ones and they're coming today or tomorrow! 

car isn't the zetec s but I didn't like just the painted metal door sills so bought the 's' kick plates from Lockwood, fitted them this morning!

As I say, waiting for the deflectors then will get them fitted and got some other ideas such as headlight bulb upgrade, definitely a debadge, tints, plasti dip wheels and maybe lowering springs...

let me know any ideas and what you think!

You should re-upload the images in your original post. A project thread isn't much good without any pictures to look at :D 

In terms of ideas, what about de-chroming the silver trim and wheels and going for a stealth look? :) Could be cool.

Think the images all up now? Trying go get used to the forum/photobucket haha. 

Yeah did think of dechroming but wasn't sure what method, either plastidip or maybe vinyl tape? 

Probably will go for black plastidip on wheels at some point!

Some of them are but not all, you can upload images straight to your posts without using Photobucket or other sharing sites :) Works much better! 

Not too sure which method, being the cheap skate I am I'd go whichever the cheapest was :tongue:

Interior lights look good by the way, nice and bright! I've only changed my foot well lights, need to do the rest.

I'm fairly sure it is. Give @Willy or @Paramanic a message, they've both changed them and I'm sure they'll be happy to help. :smile:

Then Gave the car a quick clean using autoglym shampoo and aqua wax so couple photos of that too. 

Plan on ordering some gel domed plates this week too just as a extra touch but still got the dent in my tailgate to sort :(

Car looks good - how about detangoing? One of the most effective cheap mods imho.

The flyeye isn't too hard, bit tricky round the curves of the rear light but stretches out easy enough with hair dryer. 

Have thought about detangoing just not sure what bulbs I need etc

Appreciate the comments! 

Got the Zetec S grille on today (with a lot of help from my old man😂) and loving the look now. Think it looks way better without that horrible chrome lined grille.
