Hello everyone, I am Kris and this is my Ford Fiesta MK6 2004 1.4 Duratec "Silver" some kind of limited edition with leather interior.
To Do List:
Face lift it:
New bumper and grill ? (Might just fix the current one)
New timing belt and water pump
New engine mounts
Source and fit one original 7 spoke alloy + refurbish all of them
Fit new brake discs,pads,calipers (possible from Mondeo https://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/115926-fiesta-mk6-300mm-brake-upgrade/ )
Rear brake drums to discs upgrade, if I am brave enough ( https://www.fordownersclub.com/tutorials/article/348-mk6-65-rear-drums-to-st-disc-brakes-conversion/ )
Remove and repaint the side skirts
Replace the drivers door? or try to get the dent out and repaint
Refresh the body work, all the minor scratches and cracks in the paint
Find new original floor mats ( my ones say "Silver" where others would have ZTEC or Fiesta written on )
A bit about me, even tough being a petrol head since childhood, only got my license this December as previously there was no need really. So when looking for cars I was looking cheapest insurance band and Fiestas appealed most from Band 10 cars. Even if I could afford a newer "better" car I could not afford insurance, so I believe I will use this car for next year or two, somebody on the forums said not to put any money and labor in it, but I love working on cars and fixing things in general so it is my hobby.( also work, maintenance technician for a big school and residential )
As you can see it's in a drive way so don't really have a garage to work in, but good thing is I have started a new job as mentioned above and even tough our workshop is not quite a car or metal works work shop there is more tools and space I could use, a tripod winch we use to lift the sewer pump out to clean it could be used to lift the engine to change the engine mounts, plus one of my colleagues use to be a manager of car repair shop, so advice is at hand.
Plan is to work on it this spring/summer as there seems nothing else to do for some time as we are in some kinda Apocalypse without zombies.
I would appreciate any advice,comments,opinion, anything to be honest, even if you just want to "diss" or make fun of my efforts please do. I rather have any kind of comments than none at all.
Thank you Kris.
