Hey heres my progress thread.... My 57 plate titanium x 2.0tdci. It has just 41k on the clock. Im really happy with it! I have loads of plans for it but probably wont do much till its paid off. Id like some Heko wind deflectors first and maybe lowering springs. Anyway heres some pics....!

The private plate came with the car and although it has no relevence to me i do actually quite like it.

Cheers for looking. Will update as and when the mods happen.

The Mondeo does need good bulbs. I read the reviews and tests (if they can be trusted) but saw Amazon had a great deal on Xenon Ultimas H1 at £16.44 including delivery. Only 120% brighter and yours are 130% but so far they have worked well.

I may not like Amazon's attitude to tax but they are hard to ignore at times.

Well it's been a while to say the least. Time to get this going again...

She had a full service today including new cambelt and water pump. At just under 400quid for the lot, I think thats pretty reasonable. Another garage quoted me £450 for cambelt and water pump PLUS 250 for service!

So, with that out the way i thought I'd treat her to a couple of new bits with a major change coming in the beginning of 2019.

Stay tuned.

After shelling out £210 for an auxiliary belt and tensioner I needed a cheer up. So thought I'd get the pressed plates I bought ages ago on the car. I'm happy with the look just a bit nervous of them falling off. Iv used velcro strips.

Very excited to see these turn up. Been wanting decent mats for ages but just haven't gotten round to buying any. I'll have them in the car on the weekend after it's had a spring clean (weather permitting)

With summer coming iv caught the car bug again. So wanted to give mine some attention.

So, had the wheels refurbished including my spare which is the 18 inch wheel as what's on the car. I've started replacing all the tyres, 1 a month. Gone for conti premium contact 6.

I bought black ford centre caps off ebay but they were cheap crap I'm guessing and didnt fit. So I split the faces from the backs and stuck them to the original Ford backs, hey presto problem solved.

Gave the car a wash and clay bar then had a go at polishing (by hand). Polishing didnt go great but the car is clean so job done.

Close up picture of one of the centre caps. I didnt think it would be so simple to split them but worked and you would not know they were lodged together.

Next I really want to drop the car with H&R 40mm springs but also thinking spacers. Anything to make those arches look better.

Today I did a couple of things. First, painted and stuck on my eyebrows. Then painted up some side indicators and got them on. Debadge the boot and few days ago and touched up all the stone chips that had been bugging me.
