Looks really good mate! Like that your putting it back to standard, think it could do with some 15" gtis instead of the 14s. 8-)

The deep dish 15's don't look right unless something else is euro or lairy. Standard 15 SI wheels would look the best as they are still as subtle as your 14's.

Also, why is it that to me the bus mirrors do look right, but still look ugly!? Not just your car but all the MK3's. I do prefer the mk3.5 mirrors yes but somehow thee ones on yours are both good and bad to me!

Thats the thing with fiestas, especially the earlier mk3's like rst's - from the outside they can look nice, but soon as you look under them, they can be so rotten you wonder how its still holding together. In fact a lot of older fords are like it.

A guy called Jon on FT bought it, he got it home and within a few days or so he said he was breaking it because its so rotten. The only good parts on there are a few engine bits and bobs. The whole car is in poor condition to be fair.
