Well where do i start! :D

TTF Si is now mine! Yay! Toby's (Minstral) thread of the car here: http://www.fiestaturbo.com/forums/ttf-s ... -vt169992/

Well, on friday I took a 4 hour trip on the train to Herne Bay, which is where Toby lives to pick up his Si. 3 hours to get home, it was a long ass day to be fair, but soooooo worth it!

Anyway, got to Toby's house, saw him outside and started to have a chat, then he said he would take me for a drive, he got the keys gave them to me and soon as i started it up, i was thinking 'this is lush'. So quiet compared to my little 1.3 HCS engine, its nearly silent lol. I did actually forget it was on when i went out to show my mate when i got home :lol: Moving on, we took it out for a little run, and i could already feel it had alot more power than my old car! And Recaro seats = win! They are lush :).. Got back to Toby's house, did all the paper work ect, showed me some spare bits he has for the car that i could have, showed me the service history - alot of it. And he very nicely offered me to stay for dinner too, which i would have taken him up on that offer, but i just had some chicken and chips from a local KFC wanna-be place lol.

All in all, the car is just lovely, and Toby is such a great guy too! It hasnt actually properly sunk in yet that its my car lol, its so much better in many ways that it seems like its a dream! :lol:

So, first thing on the list was to fit/replace the spring cups, made a bit of a knocking noise when going down bumpy roads ect. Got started on that today, was going to fit the lowering springs from my old car but one side of the suspension decided the top nut wasnt going to undo and just rounded off a treat, and then so did bit where you put the hex key in. So, went to do the other side, no problem at all! lol. Took that side off, used a spring cup from there, then used one of the others Toby gave to me and got started on the Si.. one side is all done and dusted, just need to do the other side - my alen key socket just shattered when i was trying to put force against the spanner to get the top mount nut undone :( Need an electric impact gun really :lol:

That was pretty much it for today, was going to give it a wash, but didnt get round to it. I'll have to do it tomorrow :)

Obviously its had a fair bit done to it so far as you can see in his thread. Its a genuine car too, not a bodge, just ticked over 73k on the way home, which isnt too bad :)

Not many pics just yet to be honest, the only ones i have taken have been off my phone. I'll post some better pics up when its had a clean :)

First pic i took of it, when i was filling up at the petrol station - centre caps are in the car, will be fitting them tomorrow most probably :)

Image

Went to ford to get a couple of bits..

Image

Fitted wind deflectors from my old car.

Image

Both the cars next to each other, taking the suspension off my old one.

Image

Both cars being worked on.

Image

Old engine compared to new, i was saying to Toby about how the Zetec engine fills the space, and you could pitch a tent up in the HCS engine bay lol.

Image
Image

Orange calipers, more orange than the jack!

Image

Anyway, thats it so far, will post more pics later. Overall, very happy with the car. Toby, thank you so much! And yes, she will be at the shows this year you will see her again! lol :D

Shes lovely! And yeah, my word is she more powerful than the 1.3! lol. Power on tap all the time for a start, its just so nice! One thing i LOVE, is last night coming home, cruising at about 70 or just under, i was like hmm, ill overtake! So gently put my foot down, and it just went to 90 before i knew it! I was like 'wow, my 1.3 would take about 10 days to do that!' haha.

Im so happy though overall :D

I use an electric nut gun, best thing since sliced bread IMO, cost about £80 from machine mart and came with 2 batteries, well worth it!

Car looks good!

Edit: Just read the previous owners Thread on FT, looks like he looked after it and did some tasteful mods, shame he didn't leave the coilovers on. Looks like you bought a good car. :thumbsup:

Yeah its a lovely car all round really, ill get coilovers for it sooner or later, im just going to put my spax springs on there for now just to lower it. I was going to use the shocks but they dont have the ARB drop link bracket, so going to have to use springs only for now. But yeah, overall, it was well looked after and its a lovely car. Just been reading the service history (got an A4 folder jammed with stuff) and its been well looked after by all the previous owners too. So overall, its a really decent car! Will get some better pics soon when shes all clean! :)

Welcome to 1.6 ownership of the green variety.
I remember my first drive in my old one, bumpy and noisy. And when I took it n the dual carriageway.. Scared the shit outta me! It's just revs and revs and revs until you hit about 100. Dosent run out of puff. You'll love it, so much difference between. 1.3/4 it's unreal.
Be good to see it looking shiny and with some of your mods on it.
Tinted rear lights look the best on the green si's ;)
