    Default Prophecy's Fiesta

    Hey, most of you have already seen my car pop up in the 'show us your car' thread, but I figured its worth having it's own thread now lol.

    As mentioned at some point, specs/current mods are:

    2L N/A 4cyl Duratec, 150HP (factory rating, probably less), 5 speed close ratio manual, K&N cold air intake.
    Aftermarket slotted/dimpled rotors (solid rear, ventilated front), OMP front strut brace.

    Clarion 2DIN head unit, stock front & rear speakers, Fusion 12" sub, cheap amp.
    Black/red stitch gearstick and handbrake gaiters, genuine Ford dash mat.

    Smoked front guard indicators, plastidip gloss (k, it came out fairly satin the SECOND time as well, alright? I tried. lol) anthracite standard 17" wheels, white racing stripe delete.

    Forseeable plans...
    I did find a rather nice alloy gearknob- really dont like the standard one.
    Paint engine cover, not sure what colour etc yet though- ST logo will be red, I know that much.
    ST badges. The less XR4 there is on it the better, gah... Ford Australia, Y U DO DIS.
    Replace missing side skirt (passenger side).
    A less restricted exhaust system with an actual metal exhaust manifold would be nice... Plastic is the future, yes, but it feels very awkward lol.
    Lower springs, hub spacers.
    Front splitter/lip, rear diffuser fins.
    Yeah.

    The photos taken on my lawn are from today, after repainting the wheels, all the others are prior to today, some even prior to head unit install.



















    Ft. camera bag and tool bag- without the camera bag, my tool bag falls over and tools go EVERYWHERE. Without the tool bag, 1, I wont have tools for work (day job), and the sub box moves around, putting a lot of unnecessary stress on the wiring, so... Yeah, boot forever full. Oh well.






    Still not the gloss finish I am after, but it'll do. they look nice.




    Clarion, in their infinte wisdom decided against making a clean surround for this unit, so theres a nasty gap between it and the fascia... Cheers Clarion, just what I wanted, an untidy gap in my dashboard.

    Am hopefully doing a track day NEXT MONTH! EEEEP so excited, will see, some planning to be done, obviously...

    I always have to laugh when people install these huge subs in their trunks. I find it ridiculous, sorry.

    Good luck with the car. It's looking quite good.

    12" is hardly huge :P I had 2 12"s in the Corolla- that was excessive (the one in the Fiesta is one of those 2, removed, put in a single box). I did want a 10", but its easier and cheaper to use one of the 2 I already have.

    Cheers mate, i'm loving every aspect of it.

    So I've got some more mods on their way- one actually arrived on Friday, and I fitted it, but I may refit it- also, no decent photos because its been raining for 3 days. Taken with my phone.

    Universal lip kit!


    Similar to an EZ-Lip, same basic idea really, flexible rubbery foamy material, sticks to things with double sided tape.

    Because of the shape of the bumper and the lip, I ended up with a splitter, but yknow what... I prefer that.

    So I have 2 used centre caps coming as well, I already have 2 that came with the car- will be painting them and fitting them to the wheels asap, probably the same day that they turn up, tbh.

    Also have a new gear knob ordered, due here probably late this week or the week after. A friend of mine has a couple of head unit surrounds for me to try, hopefully they work with mine. Ummmm yeah. The strut brace has made a noticeable difference, it liked corners before, but now its so much better, grips really well.

    So my missing pair of centre caps were replaced today. Painted the outer part to match the wheels, left the centre silver. Absolutely love it, finishes the wheels off perfectly.









    Also, couple of photos of the splitter
