Update:

Ripped out the chairs, centerconsole and carpet and replaced the isolation I ripped out a year agow and put in some extra where it was needed and replaced some moulded isolation

Before:



After:


Then I opened the air hose at work up to full pressure and gave the carpet a blow over (blow job:p) wich I really recomend everyone do! i had to wear protective glasses to avoid getting hurt by the sand that came out... I even got all the stains out... even old, stomped on choclate came out and the hair in the carpet raised up like a brand spanking new carpet... so I did the same to all seats and DAMN! I thought the industrial vac at work got a lot, but there was so much dust and general Sh|te in there that my workshop was cloudy afterwards.... here's the carpet in the car afterwards...



Then I had a look outside the car and realized that it was to good looking inside to look like sh|t outside... so i gave it a full rubdown and rewax

Before(after cleaning):


After rewax:


Yea i know the car looks totaly wank with the oh so loveley steeleys on but hey... I ran out of cash....

Puddle Lights Install:
Before:


After:


Inside:


In the dark:
http://s678.photobucket.com/albums/vv142/Morbidos/?action=view&current=MOV03580.flv

installed the lights that sitt inside the MK4 outer mirrors(will update with part nr.)
got the bulb holders from a scrapped mondeo (park lights)

the power feed is from the footwell lights and the ground go to the door swich.

Had to glue the lamps to my door as the steel in the door is not thick enough to hold the lamp on it's one... but bulb change is possible from the inside annyway... glued the bulb holders watetproof in the wire end so the lamp wouldn fill up,

Cut a hole and painted the edges to prevent rust.

I love the level of detail and dedication going into this. Great to see it done to a mk1! I am curious about those splash screens, were they expensive?

That sounds reasonable enough. I'm interesting in the car being a bit more resilient to the elements and road noise :)

Interesting info on your thread.

The old splash screens ar thicker than the new ones... cheep bastards:p but i know a store who sells 5mm thick noice reduction plates with glue on one side... gonna buy me some of those and put ontop of the splash screens and some asfalt plates inside the doors, sounds so hollow after removing the side strips

Sounds good. I guess by asphalt we're talking about what I call bitumen sheets. I have bitumen on my doors and it does make them a lot deader (loads better for audio). Compared to newer cars I find there's a lot of road noise in old Mondeos, it's nice to see you tackling that.

canged my park light bulbs to LED's today... looks soo much better, they look a little blue but that's just the camera they're really white:

Difference?


Finished:


tried to eliminate the blue look with flash on but it's still there...

Good start but how about putting chrome bulbs in your indicators to remove the orange haze? I did that and the side ones and it looks loads cleaner.
