To be honest i was on the look out for my next car to be a mondeo st24...something big but i saw this and couldn't refuse it!

heres a very quick pic from when i got her home! she literally is mint and being a 1.1 festival it weights a total of 625kg :D imagine that with a 2ltr

Image

Shes been in dry storage since march 2008 so hasnt had a polish or clean in a while, i cleaned and polished one side of the bonnet to compare the diffrence...it comes up very very well! i cant wait to polish it!

Image

she literally is a beauty. o yea my first comment says a sill! its to 50p size holes on each sill...that's it! engine and tappets adjusted every year with history to prove as well.lol


Out of curiosity i got a few quotes for it! 100% standard.....£250 for the year :D with my 2ltr in it quotes ranging from £499 - £800...and one company called sureterm direct quoting £10,049 :S .... what the hell.lol

i have already got an xr2 kit for it :P for a cost of hlping my mate clean his garage...my goal is to get it looking a little like this just without decals.

id say by the time i remove the 1.1 in her (im keeping this engine stored its so sweet.lol)

added xr2 sides and 2ltr zetec it prob take her to a max of 720kg and with my engine RR'd at 142.5 bhp that would give me just over 200bhp per ton and thats if i add 100kg to her, i don't want to ruin the engine or interior tho, even the original wheel trims so all of this is coming off and into my attic...that way if i sell her i will put her back to standard and she will still be 100% minty :D

so she will be stripped as well :P

And she will be alive by fiesta in the park and i will be coming...hopefully this year with FSI rather than my local club i went with last year!

Cheers buddy! hell of a find me thinks.lol although it is in stupid good condition she is still 21 years old so after having a good weekend on her we welded up the two holes in the rear of the sills and and found three other holes in the car! in the boot by the rear arch so although it was only through in an 1" squared area we cut the entire lot of rust out to get rid o it for good!

Also the inner wing tops where it joined to the wings was really rusty but some area had gone through badly after a good poke! so again both inner wing tops on both sides were cut of and 4mm think metal plating put in its place....it removed the flap on the wings and it strengthens it...i think it look uber cool.lol almost a euro look coming a long under the! im going to make it look as smooth as possible.

I have also changed all the brake fluid as that's the only reason the brakes weren't working, although its only done 43,000 to be exact no one has ever changed the fluid only topped it up and being 22 years old...it needed a good flush and they were like brand new again with no travel at all.

This weekend ive also changed the front tie bar bushes on both sides and they haven't been changed in 22 years either so there steering is nice and tight again as well.

she had a quick lick of polish as well and she is looking very very clean :) i hope it all pays off as she is going for MOT at 3pm today...i hope she passes so wish me luck people!.

:thumbsup: cheers buddy! ASHSI came up with a cracking little name for this project so im going to call the topic "From the Ashes" :lol: :lol: she will be having the heart of my Si after all...the engine :devil: but ive sold my throttle bodies...i think i will be more than happy with 142.5bhp in a 625kg car!!!!! dont ya think :lol:

anyway i will upload more pictures when i get my mates camera from him with all the pics week took over the weekend but here are a few i took on my phone!

Looking very clean if i do say so
Image

these pics show what the arches are like after i cleaned them...well happy with them
Image

Image

and the inner wing job in a few pics...this is the damage after cutting out the rust on the wings and preparing it for welding
Image
after being plated as you can see it no longer has the little fins connecting the inner and outer wing, nice and flush
Image
and after a lick of fibreglass and little bit of paint...this stage will be re-done so its perfect but this is as it stands now
Image
Image

let me know what you think so far :thumbsup:

Cheers for comments :) but why no XR2 kit...i would either go down the route of wide rally arches and no bumpers or as the xr2 kit is in the garden i would go that route! its cheaper for me and if you look at cars like Rob Well's Track car colour coded it looks the nuts :)

Image

but although more expensive route for me i love the look of the rally kit
Image

got to go cheap route at mo as xr2 is in garden but either way i still think it would look good :)

Wide arches and no bumpers yes.

Standard sleeperish style yes.

XR2 kit, no.. overdone and chavvy.

You have perfect arches.. show them off! :thumbsup:

Sleeper style, smooth simple.. powerful.. people will be like wtf :lol:
