Ghia Door handles
Fitted my 12" enclosed Fli Sub
Added remainder of Zs instrument panels
Fitted front Silverstone blue Zetec s seats... better back support and look better!

As i was getting the rear bumper sorted i got the front redone as the laquer started to chip off being due to cheap crap!
Local motorfactors misshaps again... wrong shade of moondust unfortunatley but thats at its worse... i believe i was given the ghia colour as its a touch darker because theres black stone chip shield stuff mixed into the paint!.. so im led to believe!

Next day after camping outside holyhead, had to call into oulton park in chester, Race testing was on for a variety of different classes, Weather was amazing!
Image

Image

Image

Image

This was cool, Couldnt tell you where abouts it was but it was on towards the m6
Image

Last year they'd put up a big ass bear up

Before we headed into the campsite we took a spin into silverstone to check out if we could drive around , Amazingly huge! so much going on between a huge cycling race, motorbike track day, porsche challenge, fiesta rally school, skid pans etc. Oh and the headquarters for the GT academy
Anyway got a cheeky pic up beside a mk7 Zetec S Mountune Pack

Not much happened after Ford Fair with the car, I bought part worn Toyo Proxes T1rs for 40 pounds... not much used on them so fitted them to my rs2000s as the tyres that were on them were bald and going in the wrong directions haha... so dangerous! hence why i fitted the zs alloys for the trip.... plod wouldnt be happy :P

Pic with the lads! just panther black is what were missing!

What was done to the van was respray my old Bumpers, fit my old ph2 zetec s grill, use the fiestas old shocks and as his van ones were fudged with a mates set of gmax 60 mill lowering springs, fitted a spoiler, blacken out the headlights wired up the fogs, various stickers to his taste :P and threw on my other mates bandys....
Unfortunatley they were not balanced right so settled on my phase 2s to finish
Image

The morning of Rsoc National day we headed up to meet another mate up in the Curragh.... Just to let you know weve all been good mates even before the mk5 fetish! :)

Image

A few drive bys!
