New Here, Here are a few pics of my new project started life as a 1.25 freestyle was soon converted into a zetec S Replica fully re-sprayed and bump-strips smoothed in original moondust silver!!! no arch rot either BONUS!!! only 72,000 on shell

The Spec
1.25 zetec
Gaz Coilovers
Excite 14" alloys (came with car)
De Tango-ed headlights
Lexus Rear lights (again came with car)
Welded tip on Exhaust(AGAIN came with car)

As Soon as i got the car I got given a company car, was going to sell it as it was but thought ive put work and money into it and am now going to keep it as ive always wanted a ZS the car is on coilovers so already a good start except the fool hasnt got the setup right so first thing was to stiffen it up and get it all level....DONE!!!

One of the first thing was to get rid of the lexus rear lights, put them back to standard as best look imo for the fiesta's just need to re-wire it all up as prev owner is chopped shite out of it!!! -Knob.

As it is going to be more track i stripped rear and hammerited the whole boot floor and got it sprayed in silver again (just a precortion).

Cleaned the arches out and found a couple of bubbles starting so sorted them out and hammerited under-neath the arch should prevent it abit.

Started thinking about dropping the puma in so that will be ordered soon and hopefully re-built not in any rush with it at all the 1.25 donkey lump will be out soon (pics to follow) and clean the engine bay and get it all re-sprayed, Thinking about a black roof aswell.

More info and pics to come soon.........

To Do:
Get RS2000 alloys
Rip Donkey Out ASAP!!!!
Get Struts fitted!!!
Get roof re-sprayed or wrapped?? Suggestions???
Get 280mm brakes fitted buying them of a friend cheap as chips!
Poly bush Front n Rear
Might give coilies a Re-furb as not happy with them being dirty LOL!!!


MORE TO FOLLOW!!!

Nice little car. Plans sound good for it too :)

If you are going to do the roof black, get it wrapped so you can take it off if you dont like it at a later date

Don't put mondeos on it they don't look good on Mk5's but RS2000's do.

Gazs are great I have them on the softest setting otherwise it does kind skip about a bit.

2 engines and 2 additional heads :P

Wrapping is a good way of doing it, go checkered if you like I don't mind :lol: I am going grey with my checks I think.

I haven't raced anyone in it but its a good engine and has plenty of power to boot. Its a popular choice :)

Or you could buy my Exhaust SS4 cam off me and then buy the inlet cam from Shawspeed and fit them and remap it :D With an exhaust system I had 150bhp ;) That beat VTS's :P
