Sweet ST! I do wish we’d have received the MKVIs over here. MKII Focus too.

Fitted the coilovers yesterday an must say ford messed up on the design of the front hub shock design both front hub pinch bolts seized an felt as though they were about to snap had to buy a blow torch to heat them u.
I think its a bit too low in the back end

How happy are/were you with the Zunsport lower grill? It's almost impossible to find any reviews. Thanks in advance!

Green_henry The fiesta has the original grill for now until i get a zunsport the focus had the zunsport lower grill it was good an it replaces the original grill and screws in so its a tight fit if your thinking of getting one get it makes the front end look better

St170 discs turned up this morning so
1st job of the day was to get them fitted with the mondeo calipers and carriers so ive now got more confidence in the brakes to push the car more on the track
2nd job of the day was to paint my wheels gloss black let them dry over night then 3 coats of lacquer then fit them tomorrow along with the headlights

Been thinking about pinching the focus off my missus and buying her a car and turning the fiesta into just a track car, as its not too practical for road use with the ride being hard and noisey exhaust, but have been looking at cages and found a place local to me who make them for any car so thinking of going in with the fiesta an see what they can/will do an get some prices.
Engine wise cant decide to keep it na or forced induction i like the sound of throttle bodies but also the noise of a turbo either way i will be getting another engine and build a fresh donkey before fitting
