Wheels look really nice, not sure about the ride height though, I guess your warranty goes t''ts up then with the modifications?

Thanks for the nice comments, the wheels and ride height are somewhat of a personal taste and I admit not to everyone's taste

Paint hasn't come up too terrible, topped with a sample from Jay @ Obsession Wax

I've purchased the anniversary wax would be rude not to being a staunch Obsession supporter since day one and Jay has been very much the reason my cars have always looked as well as they do and I can't thank him enough for his ongoing support







I'm now finding the need to use a citrus pre wash in addition to snow foam to try and minimise the amount I touch the paint as the white seems to really show the dirt on the lower panels so Jay is working on something that'll combine the 2 products it's arrival is imminent

I have tried a few of the wowo's products that I picked up in the classifieds recently and I am seriously impressed with the QD and final shine, I've never seen a QD produce beading like it

The fiesta is a sweet ride.
Running a Metal myself.
First ride just reminded me of my XR3 back in the day.
Most enjoyable to leave big audis and BMW's around roundabouts.
Enjoy yours

Thought I'd give it a bit of a clean and fit the gel badges I'd had made that were a bit of a mare to get hold of, fords aren't to keen anymore of people selling them so where as before everyone was selling them now it's like ask8ng someone for an illicit chemical
I went with white and black ford badges and white for the ST logos and I've ordered the same white and black for the wheel centres as I hate chrome with a passion and everyone knows they are xxr's





Very happy with them, I've also covered the heater rings on the interior as there are a silver colour so went white gel as well.

I gave it a little clean, well 4 hours worth using the usual Obsession Blizzard but I've found with the white I'm needing to use a citrus pre wash as well this is being remedied with something Jay is working on for me, Blizzard does lift the dirt but I find the pre wash just takes a little more off so the paints more or less clean after a simple pre wash and foam so inflicts less damage with the wash cycle with Obsession Purify and Renegade and Nero used on the wheels, I'm also finding I'm using a lot more Purge Tar and glue remover as the tar sticks out like a sore thumb on white unlike the dark coloured cars I'm used to

While Jay is working on my new custom waxes, on the previous wash I've had the chance to use something I've been meaning to for a while a wax by OCD called Alien 51, such a lovely wax that has a great scent of apple and as you can see leaves a stunning finish and all for £29.99





I sold a fair few of my wax collection as I had would you believe 5 pots of evolution in varying scents and colours and decided to spend the cash on the custom waxes so I had 2 waxes I know I'll use I'm being very very specific in what I want from them both and unlike inferno (I even sold my pot of this) these will never be released

I didn't get around to fitting the intercooler but it's in hand as the whole front needs to come off to get to it and I'm debating on whether to change the pipework at the same time.

I admit this car has ticked all the boxes for me, it's quick, handles ridiculously well and the most important the enemy likes it

I always hate any Ford, but yours with new rims and lowered, like it.

Shame to say goodbye to the RS but I can see you're making the ST just as special.

If someone had said gold rims on a white Fiesta before I'd seen it, I'd have probably just shaken my head but that looks really good.

Look forward to seeing more developments.
