Guy on the Mk6 Fiesta owners put up a post wanting ideas on what he could 3D print for these.... I suggested the phone holder insert, so he designed them and then sent me a freebie.

Yes that is definately on the to do list! Just want to be 100% sure it'd done correctly so it doesn't chip.

An update with a difference, Bought this a month ago in Galway (A few miles from the coast) Guy had bought it for parts for his own.

It's a 2004 Mk6 Fiesta Van.


Tried everywhere to try get a detachable towbar for a Zetec S, Didn't want a visible cut on bumper or visible electrics!


There's about 2" cut on diffuser but it's not visible, Electrics fold up and towbar detaches.


I stripped what remained of the van, (Diesel tank, Interior Plastics etc..) and dropped it up to a guy in Dublin.

And a few weeks later, The van was back on the road......
Looking a bit different than before. It got LOTS of attention on the motorway!



All orginal Fiesta rear axle/suspension in place. Working factory handbrake and all lights wired, jockey wheel etc..

More for show use than anything but it will be used when needed, Ideal for tip use.

Will be painted Moondust Silver with Zetec S Bumper/Spoiler and ST Skirts to match, Factory van interior in place with all plastics/carpet trimmed to fit and lowered.

I'm also half way through a Mk6.5 rear light conversion.
