ST Rear bumper, Mk6.5 Side mouldings, ST Spoiler and ST Skirts. Had to get everything couriered from UK as their non existent here.




Picked up a cheap set of 4 Mondeo 16", Their the 6.5J version. Car has 7J but i dont think anyone will notice.
Had original 205/50 so fired on some cheap 195/45 I had.




ST Rear bumper on and Mk6.5 Rear Light conversion done. Also fitted a Moondust boot door so I can lock it now.


Bodywork next!

Collected it from bodywork this evening, Really happy with how it has turned out!


Before, Front had just been tacked on in places,



It's now fully welded and cleaned down to a nice smooth finish, A few other imperfections including a dent on the arch was also done.





Side Skirts modified to fit and mould around the front, Stapled together and plastic welded. These are genuine ST skirts!




And a quick few pics on the way home, Mk6.5 mouldings fitted and ST Spoiler fitted.










Have some LED marker lights ordered for the front of it, So will have those fitted and then it's off for paint!

I admire your efforts & the time it must take you to acquire all the bits etc. The trailer makes this for me.

Do you still own your E36 tourer? That was far more my cup of tea & I took a keen interest in that. I used to own a modified 2.5 loon, loved her to bits.

Not a fan of the trailer but the car itself looks nice, do you drive everywhere with the trailer attached?

I'v used it a few times to move wheels around. (Can get 3 sets of Fiesta alloys in it!)

But it's rarely behind the car, More for show use and the randomness of having a matching trailer.

nice car, wish i had the dedication to go to such lengths with mine. Separating the headlights to get the orange indicator lens cover wasn't a job i enjoyed but i do prefer the look of it. I think there a brilliant little car to drive with the 1.6 TDCI, plenty of power and much more comfy day to day than my ST and not to mention a damn sight more economical.

Always wanted to do it, Definately odd but in a fun way.

Basically an exact copy, So matching paint and chequer roof, Trying to source rear coilovers so I can set the height and just a few finishing touches. (Carpet the bulkhead interior and some interior lights)
