Just thought i'd whack a quick post up to let u all know what im up to these days,long time no post

Got this car in september off my little brother and brought it up to scotland where im still based













List of changes are as follows
Unvented laguna splitter
Added front fogs
Aero wipers (as found on new cars)
Drilled airbox
Ghia chrome interior handles
Mondie 16" Si wheels
Esccos Brakes on the front with braided lines
EScort Si wingback seats
Fiesta mk6 gearknob (sporty version of kris06s one)
Leccy sunroof
Alpine headunit and changer
alpine type s front components
infinity rear 5x7 coaxials
red cold cathodes in front footwells and boot
Gti spats
twin rear fog lights

as standard it has CL/EW (fronts)/white dials/sports steering wheel/coded bumpers and spoiler.

May have missed loads of things
After a few months of tinkering it now looks pretty much like this (wheels are the same wheel but different )reconned fronts with low pros on and high profile on the back until they run out)

So,as it stands










my reconned front wheels with falken 205/45s and cossie brakes



opinions welcomed

who's this? cali? aye mate aint moved on due to financial reasons, cant justify paying off expensive finance on a bigger and better thing,so escorts do fine (this one cost 300 quid from my brother,and ive spent next to nothing on the bits)

andy,yeah matty c joined the site and was a mod before i left,im doing good,u?

Mark yeah im a dad,Harrison John is 11 weeks old on monday
this is him of xmas day



nice to see the site still going strong, ill pop in from time to time and update this page when i get bits for the car

(half smoked rear lights in progress,Gti skirts and 2.0 engine planned)

Yer mate it's Cali,

I seem to rememeber another engine change you where going to do or did, was it a success???

Hate to admit it but own a ford myself, focus TDCi 100bhp on an 2004 plate.
Also soon to be running another cali, i know i know acting like stuymac now.

Cute little fella you got there matey.

aye mate i swapped a 1.8 115 zetec into my old 1.6 Si, posted the results on here, ECU change created 2 months of hassle but got it sorted eventually using a mondeo ECU which doesnt have the immobiliser built in. Loved that car,had to get rid tho as it was only a 3 door,since then ive had a maroon escort estate,which died after 3 weeks,to be fixed only to die again (crank pulley flew off at 50MPH) and now i have the mexico,which i like,even if it is a bit dented (plan to fix...honest)

also,note,my avatar is a photoshop but i want to get those bits done (pre 1973 plates and smoked rear lights)
