Trailer has been fitted with a set of adjustable springs so I can change height, Took me ages to try find someone willing to sell just the rears... These had only previously been tested fitted so were as new.




And it's been finally painted in Moondust, Boot door was removed and all the inner boot shut was painted to match so no obvious signs of its original colour.

Was only painted last week so havnt even washed it yet, Few little bits to tidy but nearly there.

I've always thought that was the best shape in the whole Fiesta range. I have a 15 year old 1.4tdci in black and still going strong with 165000 miles.

I don't think I have ever seen a trailer as cool as that - top work:-)

I like the new Mk8, Interior is horrible though with that random screen plonked on the dash like so many manufactures are doing now.

I'm on 121000 Miles now.

How about a fake towbar?

Love the OEM+ route and the trailer is ace!

Ordered a KAP Industries Fire extinguisher mount, Advertised as a Mk6/Mk7 bracket. Turns out it was made just for a Mk7, But a quick message to the UK supplier and a few measurements later and they've custom made and sent me the correct one all the way from head office in Australia at no cost!







Also fitted my Mk3 Mondeo interior light, Direct replacement for the Fiesta unit so it means I now have individual map lights.





Spent ages looking for a factory parking sensor kit (Or Reverse Proximety Sensors as Ford call them) to keep the OEM+ theme going.
Couldn't find anyone willing to sell seperate from a bumper and I didn't fancy my chances of finding an individual sensor should one ever go wrong without paying €€€ to Ford.

It's a Dolphin D400 kit, Came pre painted and matched to Moondust. Lifetime warranty!

Sensors fitted in factoryish positions, Also showing off my detachable Witter and foldable electrics.





They give a solid beep when about 12" away from a wall etc... Towbar doesn't interfere with them either. Don't need them but it's another one ticked off the options list.


Trailer roof has been wrapped to match so that's pretty much finished now,




Another OEM+ mod that's not noticeable to the majority, Mk6 Fiestas have a key slot on the drivers door as standard, I used a blank from the rear door of a 5 door.
Needs slight trimming inside to clear the barrel but once done fits 100%






And pics of a clean car for once, TRC Side Skirt Splitters fitted to match the front splitter.
