On the mk3.5 if you have boot lid electrics, some of the wires come through headlining into the top of the tail gate, you'll need your fuel tank and lines too

also your side repeaters wont fit in the round mk3 holes, if you keeping the entire loom from your si, you may aswel put 2 new wings on from a 1994-1995 fiesta

the mk3 square side repeaters do not fit the mk3.5 wirering plug, can always cut the cable and solder in the newer connection, but the square repeaters only look good on the rs turbos imo

also the front seat belts you will need to re use from the mk3 as the mk3.5 belt clasps are mounted onto the seat runners, not the floor
