unless you got a massive turbo and its used primarily on track, that bonnet is going to look out of place big time, not for my liking

nonetheless though rock on! :D


lowering kit will make the car look and feel better :) watch out for bumps though :(

Get it sprayed up and it should look good.

Papa Nicole...

Was down the scrapys the other day and they just had a williams clio in, saw the bonnet and thought to myself i can do some thing with that :) got the bonnet of it for 25 quid took it home and got to work with the grinder cut the scoop out luckly the hole was in the right place as not to interfere with the fiesta bonnets frame work.. hardest part was trying to get the lines right added bonus i got a sprayer living next door :lol: might not be to everyones taste but i think it works quite well

ImageImageImageImage

Got my manifold to fit properly too :thumbsup:

Youve done a good job fitting it on the bonnet and looking tidy.

Jonny he said the manifolds off an escort.

I prefer the si look, swap the spots for cold air feeds and stick some rs/xr skirts and arches on and it will look mean enough.

I like the rs/xr look but theres loads if them compared to si's.

Yeah fair point can you buy kits to replace the spots or do you need to make them? might even get both bumpers painted up so i can change the look from time to time :O)
