That's all for now, should hopefully have the drivers seat in for Ford Fair but other than that I can't see many changes bar maybe the front brakes so will see you all there in a couple of weeks :thumbsup:

You mean you're not bringing the Civic?

Iz disappointed! :lol:

I know, I'm gutted it's a ford only show. Was so looking forward to my slow frugal drive to silverstone :)

Well I ordered up a set of Wilwood four pots for the car as I wasn't convinced by the sheer weight of the Cossie ones and they weren't going to fit under my wheels.
So they arrived on Monday and got them on last night after getting all my wheel weights shifted a bit further in :)
Got them bled tonight and they are fucking awesome!!! Only done 30 or so miles but they are just getting better and better each time they are used!!

Image

Had a play around with fitting my seats and harnesses tonight as well and I need different eyebolts as the fez isn't metric for the seat belt anchor points!! :(
Small mod to do on the side mount frames I've got and drivers seat should be in. Hopefully can get eyebolts for Saturday and get harnesses in for Ford Fair too : D

They look smart :) I always wanted a set but haven't got round to it yet. Did you buy these new?

Danny,
Yeah bought new from Rally Design. They are part number Bk12H but his isn't listed on their website. It's the replacement for the old Bk12D kit which is obsolete.

Cheers Terry, hopefully the car stays in one piece long enough to enjoy them lol :)

They are perfect for the wheels. 8-)
With weights on in line with the calipers they are about 2mm too proud and catch on one edge so just perfect with the weights moved inboard slightly :thumbsup:

My seat mounts are being modified at work just now to fit on the standard runner upright bolts so should get them fitted tomorrow (out tonight or it would be done then!) and new eyebolts coming for the harnesses hopefully tomorrow so they'll get put in at the same time :devil: :devil:

Then all I need to do is drive to Silverstone, not kill myself on track and drive it back without breaking down :teehheee:

We shall see :hmm:

Pfft! Stuck behind an ST? I had no problem with them haha.

Was a good session! Coilovers would make all the difference for sure.

Errr...yes, thanks for that Adam :hmm:

Yes, it is true that I have covered my gearbox and anything else around that area with oil thanks to the breather breathing out a bit too heavily!! :sigh:

Never mind, no damage done I think, although there was a knocking noise when I was having a listen at lunchtime but I think thats just the belt tensioner gone again as the belt was slipping a bit this morning as I pulled into the car park... and so it begins again.... :homo:

And yeah, the car was quick on the straights but I just couldn't get it round the corners well enough to get a good run onto the straights.

I'll upload the video later on and will point out the point where I overcooked it on the straight and couldn't get it to slow down as the back end was squirming all over the place (again coilovers would have solved that one!)

Well I think I have the breathing problem sorted. Have ordered one of Will Pedley Racings Zetec breather fittings as my standard one is clearly not doing it's job properly and I'm getting a bailey catch tank off a mate. Ordered some hoses for it all today too so will get that installed some time soon!

As for the coil overs I'm in two minds as to whether to install them on this shell or not as I'm 90% certain I'm getting a 3door one shortly. Will see what happens with that....

Right, well as there has been no update from me in the last 6 months I guess it's fair to say bugger all has happened with the Fiesta...and that's my problem, I don't have time to tinker with it any more as I'm on my own with my daughter so once she's in bed I can't go out to the garage in case she needs me....soooo....as much as it pains me she's up for sale (the car that is not my daughter :lolz: although if anyone wants to offer a decent price I can throw her into the deal to ;) )

I'll get around to putting up a proper for sale thread, one for the car and one for all the shite I have accumulated, but if anyone wants the car or any bits above just give me a shout.

Car as is, quick spec 2.0 with HO Inlet, Sparco buckets and harnesses, Wilwood fronts, Focus Disc rears, MOT'd to August'ish looking for around £750.
For a grand I'll throw in the brand new GAZ coilovers.
For 2 grand i'll throw in the coilovers and the refurbished quaife straight cut BC box with Ford LSD

Price is open for discussion as I don't really want to break her, but if I need to I will as I have a garage so can store the bits and moneys not required urgently!!

What have I got to replace her I hear you may be asking?! Well, I wanted rid of the Civic also as I hate driving it so needed something practical(ish), safe and fairly quick to cover all bases from the Civic and Fiesta so I went and bought this :devil: :devil:

Needless to say covers all bases and a few more :thumbsup:

Cheers dude :thumbsup:

Yeah man, I'm still up for heading to shows, still love Fords and will always have a soft spot for the Si ;)
One day I'll maybe get another Ford and track it, but for the forseeable it ain't gonna happen so would rather someone else made use of my one and the stuff I have.
