Hello all!

Been some time sine iv been on here , couldn't even remember my user name :lol:

After it was game over for my old si I got my hands on mint mk2 that iv completely transformed I won't go to much into detail about it because this thread is for the new si

That was the mk2 for two year but rust got hold of it so I set about fitting mk1 golf arches

Image

That has turned into a pretty big project

So a old friend of mine, (rodderz) posted his car for sale on Facebook, iv know the car for a few years and knew the work he had put into it so I jumped at it and bought it. I only picked it up tonight so don't really have any pics in the light but he did post some on here back in 2011 when he had it painted, you may even kno the car it's cosworth blue with the escort cosworth splitter,

I'll update te tomorrow with some pics in the daylight :)

Good to be back!!

Yeh trying really hard on the mk2, this is pretty much a sorted car so guna fix the odd bits like power steering pump and idler pully, good clean on the underside and wax oil it to death lol
a guy on here did own it since 2008 as there is a fiesta-si.com sticker in the back window his name was roderz on here
it was originally green
But I take no credit for how it looks as it was all his hard work :p

Bit of a update on the car, changed the alternator and idler pulley and no more whining noise, but unfortunately found a massive hole in the sill and driver floor so now it's up on axle stands in my unit getting welded... Ohhh the joys -_-

Will get some pics tomorrow

So yeah.. Here's' the damage :(

Image

Image

Image

Who would have thought looking at the pictures of the car this would of been hiding underneath :(

I'm well under way fixing the damage but I'm not a welder, it's not pretty but rust free and solid

Image

Luckily the other side is in perfect condition so this side is my only worry :doh:
