That has to be the quickest response I have ever had! Glad you like it Dave, you know how long I have had these ideas, it's just good to be able to turn it into reality :D

I think the wheels suit the car perfectly, colour is just right.

Right then, as some of you know I've been away on a little holiday for a few months, but now I'm back and decided to update this thread.

She went off the road end of Jul 12, mainly as I had too many other things to play with (Mk2 Fiesta, Mk2 Golf). I still have them but thought this year I would bring her out to play.

Image
Image


I gave the battery tray a small tidy up before fitting the battery

Image
Image


then rolled her out to have a better look

Image
Image
Image
Image


Unfortunately the bubbling on the rear left arch has got a little worse :cry:

Image

So it was at this point I thought, I've had enough, I'm going to remove all the goodies i.e. coilovers etc, sell them and then sell her as a standard Si.

That was until I saw Phils Si being rebuilt with the spectacular paint etc and thought why not? I just can't get rid.... well not yet anyway!
So I went online and ordered these

Image

Hidden in there are two rear arches, so over this year will begin an overhaul. Watch this space ............ 8-)

Looking good Dave, really pleased to hear you are keeping her and showing some love, these cars are worth saving as they are so few and far between nowerdays

I assume you are doing the welding yourself? Will it be done for ford fair?

Also, is that cone filter big enough....?! :P (this also means you would definitely be cheating if we compared the two on the rollers again.....)

I'm going to have a go at the bodywork myself but will need someone else to do the paint (lack of facilities). I'm not sure if it will be done in time for Ford Fair but I'm going to try.

As for the filter, I put it on before going around Cadwell Park. It seemed like a good idea and it makes a great noise :thumbsup: although it's not staying :cry:

White Fez got weighed in a long time ago. Still got Jams old Mk2 Fez, ST 170 with Ford rear window side shades ;) and the Mk2 Golf. Also maintaining a Polo 6N that I bought as a first car for my eldest when he turned 18 last October.
