    Default My new toy

    Just bought this for £200 from a mate (excuse these pics in general, they are the very first of it, the ghastly wheel trims actually make the car look better, its either them or rusted steelies!)





    Not really much i want to do on the Vectra, so this will now take up majority of my time. Its a 96 fiesta 1.4 SI; lowered 40mm on full Gmax setup, Zetec S exhaust with Ashey backbox & de-cat, rear disc conversion, MK6 front brakes, tinted headlights, euro rear light, rear wiper removed, & some sort of front splitter.

    As its not a vectra i wont bore you all with full plans for it but basically smarten it up exterior wise, strip it out, stick a new engine in it (maybe Racing Puma), & eventually use it at RAF track events.


    Any comments welcome

    First 2 jobs were done on it today (pics taken on phone)

    Fiesta was already fitted with JBL speakers so to make the most of them i dug out my old JVC head unit out the loft



    Ages ago the original colour-coded drivers side mirror was smashed & mate replaced it with a crap plastic one leaving it with one of each.......had to be corrected straight away!! Ballache of a job though. Turns out a subtle difference between the original MK4, & a MK5 mirror (as this new one is) meant that the original bolts wouldnt fit the new one. Overcome by some cut down, self tapping screws & a couple of washers. Fits just as secure as Henry Ford would of wanted :P




    Thanks for the comments so far guys!!

    This just cost me £250, as you guys know i smashed my Vectra last week so this was got so i can get to Norwich to get my part share cab. What a crock of ****! Ok, it's not that bad but i'm no frenchie fan oo la bleeding la!! lol!!! MOT till MAY, tax till March.
    I too have plans for it, i'm going to do a Euro/Rat look on it. I've loved the look but never had a car to do it with, well now i have. I've not decided on the final details but it'll involve lowering it, army green matt , Orange wheels and chequers. The rest? I'll wing it.

    As bought. Nicole? Papa?


    This is my guide.
