Found it on eBay, won it for 459.

Sills are crapped, last owner covered nicely with filler, didnt weld, or treat rust so its eating away at the filler.. needs sorting or selling.

I fear selling is more like it, dont have the money right now to sort it out.

Quite quick just at the end of the day like you say 10 years old, and its just a fiesta with a zetec engine in it.. oh and some fancy seats.

If its rusted along the sills and they are asking a fair whack for it, just leave it, enless you intend spending and spending and spending on it; because believe me, you will, lol.

Most owners dont seem to of kept their si's in good nick at all, let them rot away and leave it to poor gits like me and you to restore..

I had the same problem with mine but it was the rear arches that had been done.
ended up getting new arches and sills fitted. just need to get 2 new wings then its totally rustless on the outside.

disagree - the mk3.5 dont rust as much as the older MK3's, and you dont get any rust around the filler caps on the Si, they have a fuel flap cover over the actual petrol lock.

Post subject: 

this is helpful guys. almost everyone has told me they rust around the arches so i'm gonna check these thoroughly.

the cheapest insurance i found with mods was with adrian flux. anyone know a cheap one?

'95 fiesta si' is that your car in the small images below your text. if it is nicely moded! are your skirts rs2000? these are the type i want to get.

are they easy to fit?

Post subject: 

yer. Changed a little bit since then though. The venoms have gone and got some 17" kahns, just need some tyres for em. Added a mondeo spoiler too. Yes they are RS2000 Skirts on there. Easy to fit. Just bolt or rivet them on where they join the bottom of the arches.

Post subject: 

yea the si looks better without venoms, me personally i dont like them! everythin else looks good. was it all done by yourself '95 fiesta si'.

oh yea performance direct quoted me like ?500 more than Adrian Flux. anyone else know some good insurance companies for modded cars?

GregA - Yer when i had the venoms that was back in about 1999 when they are all the rage, but theyve just dated over the years. Got some 17" kahns now, just need some tyres for em. Done all the work myself except the Avo coilovers and the window tinting.

picture below is a photoshopped pic with the kahns on.......much better !

yer the khans will look well nice on there! is the petrol cap white??!!!! simple slick mods i think are the best! but everyone to their own, still think the car looks well nice. bonnet looks good. did you do all the spray work?

someone posted up on here how to spray stuff so i will give it a go myself. if i cant my cuz worked in a bodyshop.

with the 17" did you have to do much arch work?

Author:  95 Fiesta Si [ Wed Mar 23, 2005 3:09 am ]
Post subject: 

GregA - The petrol cap isnt white, the contrast and brightness of the picture makes it seem that way. Its a dimma MK4 Brushed Aluminium Fuel Flap cover. Looks odd in the picture i know but it reflects the light. Bonnets gone know mate as same twat reversed into it, got just a standard FRST one one now, not sure what to do with it though yet. I didnt do the spray work on the bonnet. An area that big needed colour matching as your cars original colour fades over the years and being that its a big panel on the car it was important to get the colour match perfect, so had it done professionally. Sprayed The skirts & Spoiler etc no probs.

Arches havent been cut just simple rolled, Think it cost me ?25 an arch to get done. Got Avo Coilovers and 5MM wheel spacers on the rear. Didnt get arch rubbing when the venoms were on, but rubbed on the inner-linners on full lock.

quiet often suprisingly. you dont notice it until it catches. then you tend not to do it.
