This is Ngys old fiesta as you may have guessed. He sold this to one of our friends who has not treated it well at all! The other day i bought it back for 300 and am planning to fix EVERYTHING on it and make it better again. There is a lot wrong with it it is in need of:

1. New exhaust system
2. 2 new tyres
3. 4 wheel bearings
4. Starter motor
5. Ignition barrel
6. Drivers seat
7. Handbrake tightening
8. Brake pads
9. 4 new shocks and springs

Here is what it looked like before i got it







As you can see its in a bad state but all that is about to change Very Happy Wink

Ill keep everyone updated on how it goes and post more pics as soon as!

Today the fiesta got stripped and cleaned/hoovered/washed. Then the carpet got aired out along with the seats. The new seat cover went on, the homemade sub box went in, the solenoid got fixed, the wires got all hidden and the FCS stickers went on. All in all a good day as she recieved some much needed TLC.













Jamie was lovin the sex toy (handbrake) Laughing

Next up is a new starter motor, drivers seat and parcel shelf.
And obvcourse the street-carz stickers Very Happy:D

In the last week i have taken off the exhaust (what was left of it) and given the engine a good clean. I have been buying lots too and have bought 4 new bearings, a new straight through pipe, a peco backbox, a new spoiler, a new cd player, 2 new seats, a new suspension arm, a new grill and new brake pads. The car is going into the garage on Monday or Tuesday to get evrything fitted and to get the handbrake fixed and then an MOT.
After this the car will be complete Very Happy And hopefully in time for my birthday on Thursday so i can get it on the road lol

The old exhaust

The new exhaust

What was left of the pipe

What the new backbox will look like

New seats

New cd player and pop boot button

The rest of the things waiting to go on

The street-carz sticker






Quick question: Should i get harnesses to go with the seats? And also should i lower it 60mm or keep it 40mm?

jamex coilies are 299 and iv seen coilies 4 225 think theyr GMAXX numbers.

honestly for what you will pay for gd springs n shocks u may aswell buy cheap coilies as they will be stiffer and be fully adjustable for a similar price
