Right, so basically - Brief history of the car
Started out in the police force back in 1994 as an under cover highway car thingy lol. 1994-1996 / 0-114,000miles
Then the second owner was a smoker :x (Hence why i need new seats). 1996-2005 / 114,000-164,000miles
Third owner was a doctor, who basically just used it for the school run and taking his kids horse riding (Hence why i need new carpets lol). 2005-2008 / 164,000-173,000miles
And now me :D Since December 25th 2008 174,000-189,000-etc.miles
Over all the car is in good nick :)
And then engine still works perfectly despite the milage :D
But i'm putting a 2.0 in anyways so it doesn't matter

When i got it, it was completely standard apart from still having wiring for sirens/lights in it and also a sony tape headunit and 10 disk cd changer lol

Since i've had it... of the top of my head from what i can remember
Mondeo Zetec Alloys
Scorpion Cat-back
New kenwood headunit with everything basically, most importantly it glows green! lol
Replaced all 4 speakers with some 180w ones, so no chavvy 6x9's
Steath box sub with 1000w sub and unknown w amp, but it's poweful
Mk4/5 wiper
Mk5 ariel
Mk5 Sunroof
Mk4/5 Ghia interior light
Puma Handbrake gaitor
Smoked repeaters
Colour coded wingmirrors and spoiler (RST)
RST bonnet
Yellow foglight tints and bulbs
Ice white headlamps and sidelights
Rear int light
Rear headrests
Gold badges

Soon to come:
2.0 Conversion - just need inlet and then will drop straight in
ST150 brakes with MK1 non ABS master cylender - still need to buy lol
Tint rear windows

Stuff to collect at FF:
Laguna Splitter
ST150 rear disk setup
Carpet

DISASTER! :(
My car was really nice and shiny, so i decided to put it on the trailer today and cover it with a "waterproof" car cover, and it rained.
So then i looked underneath the cover and there was water everywhere!

I'm gunna have to polish it again at ford fair by the looks of things... if the weather is nice :/

Looks a pretty good car for a moon miler!

Should be nice after all your mods ;)

What brake servo are you going to be fitting?? With rear discs, and bigger front brakes... you will need at least a MK6 Escort servo, or bigger MK2 Mondeo servo (MK2 Mondeo one is a straight swap)

I thought it was MK1 mondeo. Either way i'm fitting a nonABS mondeo servo lol.
I'm not an expert at welding so i'm not going for the escort lol

I've decided to go with what you said, the mondeo mk3 calipers with st170 disks as they are 67093274x cheaper lol
1 question, do the st170 pads fit the mondeo calipers?
It's just on ebay they are selling sets of pads and disks for the st170 for pretty much the same as just the disks, and i just wanted to know if i had to throw away those pads and get the mondeo ones lol

Nice one, I used the MK3 Mondeo Pads... not sure if the Focus ones will fit...

I just went to local motorfactors and asked for the pads for the calipers and a set of discs, came to something daft cheap like £40 :lol:

Tis definately MK2 Mondeo Servo too (see:- http://www.mwstewart.co.uk/articles/mk3mondeomc/ )... the MK6 Escort one is a good one also but you need to faff cutting the welding the rod shorter :)
