The engine bay as it stands at the present. soon to have a few little changes

The slam panel is custom made. i used the stand st slam panel and modified to allow fitment of the RS cais. i also cut out and flushed the bonnet stay holder as its now not used so wanted the flush look.

All the painted panels have been coated with G Technic C5 ceramic coating

















After doing all the bay matt black two main things stood out. the front slam full section and the suspension legs. so i stripped everything down as much as i could and set about spraying them matt black. it come out brilliant and you would think the engine would have been out (future plans) dont have many pics of the during process as it was pretty time consuming and i wanted to crack on with it.

decided to refresh the headlights. cleaned all the rubbers, matt black painted the edges and added vinyl eye brows. first of was a wet sand and compound polish. 1000 to 2500 grit and autoglym 2 stage compound.















the parcel shelf has been recovered too to match the boot trim.

A few pictures from having a blast around the country side.
Ladybower reservoir and top end of Castleton. Car wasn't the cleanest as it was a last minute thing. Managed a quick wash tho lol. The cloudsvand surrounding was giving off some serious reflections. All images have a vignette around the edges.

Really gutted as if I was ten minute later I could have got the same picture at ladybower reservoir the Lancaster bomber doing a low flyby

A little edit I did for fun. Only on my mobile phone.
Shame I missed the actual lancaster bomber doing a flyby by 10 minutes

Got rid of the gold wrap and gone back to the original black/grey for a more subtle stealth look. Just a few final adjustments to do.

when fitting the induction wrap i damaged a bit of the slam panel. my fault as i should have taken it off. as i have already modded it by making the mouth for the carbon cais and delete of the bonnet stay brackets, i thought id finish it off my filling the gap where the bonnet stay rested, a long way off yet, ill add the photos of the previous slam and mods,











and now the latest









its in a bit of a mess at the minute but it will be back better than ever.

wasnt 100% happy with the wrap and re fitting of the pipe. so i ordered some new wrap and re fitted it all to get a perfect fit. also added carbon to the jubilee clamps.



then i was sat in the car and something that always annoyed me was the silver screws. why didn't ford fit covers is beyond me.
so i set about firstly spraying the screws black. not content i went and found some covers from the garage. nothing major but i think the little difference all add up to one big one.





finally pick up another cap for the engine cheap of a mate. so it was quickl painted up and fitted.
