Few little updates on the mk2, its been slow going as ive been rebuilding my saph cossie at the same time :doh: :lol:

I made a start JB welding in my vac adapters into the bike body injector holes and the blanks into the secondary butterfly holes

ImageIMG_20150303_091306 by onslack, on Flickr

I also bought some new black silicone joiners from fastdan

ImageIMG_20150303_092458 by onslack, on Flickr

Conor kindly remade my water pump bracket and powder coated it for me

ImageIMG-20150311-WA0026 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG-20150312-WA0018 by onslack, on Flickr

sh!te pic, but I've bought the connectors for my loom, just got to get the engine in to get the wiring lengths

ImageIMG-20150211-WA0019 by onslack, on Flickr

I finally collected my modified fuel tank off of chubbyjon

ImageIMG_20150426_133127 by onslack, on Flickr

And last of the collected part is my brand new xr2 rad

ImageIMG_20150426_133219 by onslack, on Flickr

Baz and myself set about removing the engine from the fez the other night, the fez and the saph having a face off

ImageIMG_20150424_195251 by onslack, on Flickr

Few hours later and the fez was engineless

ImageIMG_20150424_221237 by onslack, on Flickr

The bay needs a good jet wash when I get back from working away to get rid of those rusty water marks, then i can get a mate to help sort out the sh!t welding on the battery tray!

ImageIMG_20150424_221242 by onslack, on Flickr

I'm going to get the arches jet washed while im there and treat them as this shell is mint!!

Time to pull my finger out and get this engine in :D

Right so bit of an update on the ol fezza

I've made a few more purchases recently

1st up is a block breather from Will Pedley Racing with some quip shizzle :D

ImageIMG-20150131-WA0017 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG-20150131-WA0019 by onslack, on Flickr

Next up is a mk1 mondeo MC/servo

ImageIMG_20150525_161808 by onslack, on Flickr

While i was at it i bought some coolant hoses and one of shane's ST170 converted covers

ImageIMG_20150523_155227 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150523_155335 by onslack, on Flickr

I gave the ol shed a blast with the jet wash to get rid of a few months worth of dust and shite, while i was at it i then gave the gave a spray with some de-greaser and gave that a blast ( stuff on the front panel near the bonnet mounts is grease, i was still cleaning lol)

ImageIMG_20150525_142422 by onslack, on Flickr

took the wheels off and gave the arches a clean

ImageIMG_20150525_144920 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150525_144857 by onslack, on Flickr

i did the same with the fronts

ImageIMG_20150525_151842 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150525_151835 by onslack, on Flickr

few things i need to sort are the poor attempt at repairing the battery try and the small patch on the passenger inner wing

that's it for now, hoping to have the engine in this coming week :D

I did a few minor bits to the fiesta this weekend, it mainly consisted of stripping out my old 1.1 dash as i've donated it to a young lad who's got my old shell :cool!:

but before i did that i test fitted my new steering wheel :D

ImageIMG_20150531_135435 by onslack, on Flickr

soooo out with the old

ImageIMG_20150531_153109 by onslack, on Flickr

I've had this sat in my shed for about 3yr, which i had forgotten about until recently! which is why the dash was removed :lol:

flocked xr2 dash with cobwebs and sh!te as standard :lol:

ImageIMG_20150531_153528 by onslack, on Flickr

I'm a lazy scrote so i left all the sh!te on it and fitted it as is LOL

ImageIMG_20150531_160910 by onslack, on Flickr

Like a knob i forgot to fit the heater vents... so out it came again... :roll: :lol: , this time i cleaned it then fitted it :oops:

ImageIMG_20150531_171623 by onslack, on Flickr

I also did a few bits to the engine, the belt is on and timed up so I've started bolting bits back on, i also added an adjustable pulley to the exhaust cam

pic showing the new exhaust pulley, cam belt, tensioners and water pump

ImageIMG_20150531_121816 by onslack, on Flickr

Bolted the modified cover i got from shane

ImageIMG_20150531_150630 by onslack, on Flickr

I've also bought an xr2 rack and one of shanes adjustable panhard rods :mrgreen:

ImageIMG_20150531_172125 by onslack, on Flickr

It appears I'm missing a few bits from my xr2 dash so I'll be sticking up a wanted thread for those bits :wink:

I'll be fitting my new sump and arp rod bolts next and giving the block a lick of paint :mrgreen:

cosworth bailey breather pot

ImageIMG_20150623_214117 by onslack, on Flickr

brand new xr2 arb drop links

ImageIMG_20150709_100828 by onslack, on Flickr



first up i poly bushed the suspension bits ( few select pics)

ImageIMG_20150625_155827 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150628_182326 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150621_133957 by onslack, on Flickr

fitted my xr2 arb and adjustable panhard rod

ImageIMG_20150621_114355 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150621_134019 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150621_145557 by onslack, on Flickr

engine fitting time came

ImageIMG_20150618_204154 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150618_213726 by onslack, on Flickr

test fitted my bodies

ImageIMG_20150619_161606 by onslack, on Flickr

i then removed my bodies and fitted my vac hosing for the mc/servo and for my fpr

ImageIMG_20150623_173128 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG-20150623-WA0025 by onslack, on Flickr

refitted my bodies

ImageIMG_20150626_214803 by onslack, on Flickr

then measurements were taken for my loom

ImageIMG_20150619_172225 by onslack, on Flickr

i then refitted the carpet and my S2 seats

ImageIMG_20150622_111321 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150622_111312 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150622_111301 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150628_182438 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150628_185313 by onslack, on Flickr

I decided to be awkward and keep the st exhaust manifold standard and not cut it , this meant i had to sacrifice some of the cross member !

ImageIMG_20150627_133506 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150627_145833 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150627_160456 by onslack, on Flickr

while i was doing that i test fitted my xr2 rad

ImageIMG_20150709_145548 by onslack, on Flickr

good to see your still as mad about Fiestas Terry.

I tried to buy back my Fiesta a couple of weeks ago. Its been lying with a knackered engine after the new owner ran it low on oil and ran the bottom end destroying the crank and conrod. Engines now out the car and being rebuilt by a good friend of mine, so may be back in action for 2016
