Well the gearbox had gone and it was using like 5 litres of petrol a day going back and forth to work

Instead of fixing it and selling it I thought I can get more if I break it

Shame really I loved that si :(

No it isn't, namely because of the rusted bolt design :doh: at least it's done now, thanks to a local ford man with a garage who blasted the nut off on the front and rear

it's the metal plate above the drivers side front leg that holds water and causes the nut to rust on

The other side wasn't much better either!! Water clearly gains access to both strut holders

Hey all, an update long overdue, but before Ford Fair got a lot of work done on the ST, Namely new brake discs, ferodo ds2500 pads, 5.1 dot brake fluid and new exhaust section so see below

Image
Image
Image

Filthy brakes, but went over them several times to clean them and gave the wheels a spruce up while they were off

Image
Image

After they were all cleaned up, put on 3 coats of paint and a new set of ST brake caliper badges from DMB to finish them off :D

Image
Image

Now I have driven the car hard I feel it would be a good idea to get braided brake lines and finish the suspension now, albeit if I don't lose the passion because of spiralling prices etc and want for a mortgage and other things, but anyway to finish the update

Had to wriggle the old centre section off the car with extra hands from emma was a bugger, but it came off eventually

Image

And alongside the new section to go on, like for like replacement makes the car a bit more raspy and louder than before, its not too loud which is great!

Image

And finally the clean wheels back on the new brakes :)

Image
Image

That's all for now folks! As said if I don't lose passion and mind set can keep on it, it should get a few more goodies
