As some of you are aware, I have recently got myself a Mk2 Fiesta courtesy of Jam :D
I travelled down to Essex the Friday before the bank holiday to collect her

Once I got her home she sat on the drive under a cover until I sorted out some space. I spent the following four days between rain showers sorting out my shed and garage to create enough space to put a car in my garage. This is the first time since I moved in four years ago that I have been able to do this! Now I have some room, work can commence :D

First job is to sort the window. I got a new one from E-bay, however when I collected it the seller gave me a couple more to go with it :shock: Anyone in the market for a window or two for a Mk1/2 Fiesta give me a shout :lolz:
Image
Anyway I got on with it, clearing the glass as I go and doing a bit of cleaning too.
Image
Image
Image
Image
I even squirted a bit of waxoil in the doors while I was there :D
Image
The car is tucked up for the night now, more to be done tomorrow. I will try and keep the updates coming, comments welcome as always :chill:

Look forward to the progress, if it ends up as clean as your si then this will be a good one.

Don't worry guys I like the headlining too :?
I have decided that it will stay and if any budding artists feel they could add to it but only if it compliments what is there then feel free to volunteer :D
I have been busy again today on the interior checking for any hidden suprises but as suspected I have only found good things. :thumbsup: Obviously I did a bit of cleaning while I was there but it's too late to faff around with photos so you will have to wait until tomorrow :chill:

Nice one Dave, bet you're well pleased!

I know how long you have been after a mk2 since you sold your last one

Is the white car being scrapped now then?

Dave, keeping the white one for now as Joshua has his eye on it and would like to learn to weld :rolleyes:

Plans for the Mk2 is to keep it fairly standard for now and just get it on the road and use it.

Anyhow been busy, since replacing the window I have been working my way through the car looking for any gotcha's like rust etc although I think I have a good one here with just a couple of flaws. For now, I have given the interior the once over and a quick rinse down in the engine bay and washed the outside. Next will be underneath and in the wheel arches etc....

For now here is a few more pictures of my progress

Image

Fiona had been out shopping and come back with this
Image
What an ace wife :D , means I will be able to get rid of that Sub hole :hmm:
Image
Image

Unfortunately I think the dealership sticker had seen better days
Image

Took out the chairs, lifted the carpet and after a quick wipe around found a very good floor :D
Image
Image
Image

Happy with everything re-assembly began, cleaning as I went :halo:

Enjoy :chill:

Looking very clean so far!

The one thing I like about the MK2's is the boot space under the floor and how the spare wheel is in it. I wish they carried that on over to the MK3. You can make SO much use of all that space. Even if its just for back up oil and a few other bits.
