Well as she is near perfect on the exterior i thought i would put up some pics of her progress since 1990

Image

Then i was looking for a new car to replace my 1.1 and H769DTR come up, but it was in Bournmouth :eek: so before i went to go and look @ the car i wanted to see some pics of the conditon of it

(Come on Standard Wheels)
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Well after seen these pics and some pics of the mint petrol cap and the price of ?700 i thought it rude not to go down and have a look,

So i went down and i ended up buying the car for ?600 as there were a few bits that needed some attention but nothing too major :D

As car was on drive @ home i had to buy few bits and pieces to the external to make it how i wonted it!

such as new smoked lights rater than the tint sprayed version it had on before!

Image

Image

Image

after that its down to the Bodyshop to get few things sorted!

it started off with just bonnet and bumpers touching up a little

Image

Image

Image

Well then after that we took to bumpers off to find out that the front bumper right hand side was only held on with cable ties and Fibreglass! :mad:

and the rear just needed a little bit of a touch up

Image

Image

the front :roll:

Image

and bonnet

Image

we decided to make sure the sills were ok as we knew it needed a little patch but then after the nail gun ity looked like this

Image

Image

Image

After rust killing all the front was just waiting on the welding and painting to be complete i took afew more pics,

Image

Image

Fianlly car was finished and it was time for some pics of the completed car

Image

Image

Image

Still not totally happy with the exterior i wonted to get rid of the standard wheels!

so went on the look for some then come up with these!

Image

Image

Then after fitting those i decided car engine was running hot so decided to rasie the bonnet for extra cooling and different look

some pics from ford fair

Image

Image

Image

A few interior shots now, a bit better than the standard Xr interior the Frst complete interior

Image

Image

Image

Image

Last but not least some pics from trax :D

Image

Image

Image

Hope you have enjoyed reading and looking please feel free to comment on what u like and dislike

All Comments Welcome :D

It is clean Dude. Personally I like the ghey blue strips around it, so I'd have kept them on, but I know you want to make it a pukka FRST rep, so green ones would go down a treat. I enjoy my 2i as its a laugh more-so than anything else. It's got some poke when you want to and it feels fun throwing it about.

I'd certainly buy another one, but deffo more of a minter. They're hard to find, but cheap to buy.

Well have had this week off and with a few problems with the car i have know decided to rebuild the engine and do some other parts to give it a new lease of life!

Some of the idea's i have come up with are to keep the orginality of the car! ie no 2ltr Zetec

so i am going to uprate the 1.6 cvh :D Plans for this are

Port and Polish,
Bigger Valves and triple cut,
4-2-1 Manifold
Uprated Cam,
Vernier Pully
Full S/S exhaust
uprated oil pump
Chip
and for the exterior
Cossie Brakes
Proper mk3.5 colour coded mirrors
4 inch roled out exhaust!

Well here are some pics of the progress so far!

Image

Image

The removed parts

Image

and the Exhaust

Image
