thought i finally do a thread for the mrs cabby, she's had it since late september and hasn't skipped a beat sooo far :)

 

it's a 1.6 zetec, electric hood, c/l, e/w, p/s only rust on it is at the bottom the driver's front arch, and a tiny bit along the drivers side sill, and there's a small crack and scuff on the front bumper (was there when we bought it)

other than that it's spot on for £550 :)

 

here's some pic's of it when we got it...

it's still as pictured above as she's only been driving less than a year so best to get used to it first...

 

plan's are (not sure if she's aware yet though lol)

 

lose the gash rear light's and get some half tint's or maybe the black lexus style light's??

fogged front bumper

goona splitter

spat's

lower it a tad

4x4 saph cossie wheel's (she hasn't masterd parking yet so no proper alloy's for abit lol)

black grill for the front

angle eye's (black one's)

decent exhaust system, (nothing OTT)

colour coded wing mirror's

and just a general tidy up really

 

 

if anyone has any of the above let us, she's starting to get the modding bug now so thing's will start to happen shortly, but unfortunetly it'l proberly be coming out of my pocket lol

 

i have a question for any cabby owner's reading this... on the front and centre piller bit's there's 2 bolt hole's(in each piller), what are these for? and does anyone have the bolt's that go in them as her car missin all of them...

 

anyway, that's all for now, i'l update as and when/if anything happen's :cheers:

Those holes on my pillar have alan key black bolts in them, I thought they were to hold the plastic trim to the pillar? Always been on mine & never removed them so not sure what else they might be.

Nice car, will look good with ideas you have.

To get a rough idea look at mine as it has the front/rear lights your thinking of.

Yea I'm sure the bolts are to hold the plastic on. I've got 1 out of the 4 snapped off for some reason. I didn't notice when I bought it and thought someone had tried breaking into it (which they may well have been). And yes they're Allen key bolts.

 

I am selling smoked rear lights for cheap. The rubber is a little perished but the lights themselves are good. And section cut out to fit cabriolet as slighty different to standard escorts.

 

Nice base, mod plans sound sensible. Black angel lights FTW

Looks good Tez, my other half had a cabriolet :)

 

The bolt points are for a (very rare!) roof rack and have little plastic allen bolt caps that screw in, they aren't very strong so don't do them up too tight

 

As Dan said they are for a roof rack.....there was a modded cabby at ford fair this year or last year with the rack on it.....first one ive ever seen lol

Fair enough, can't say iv even seen a cabbie with roof racks :unsure:

I need to find some of the bolts that go in the holes, there isn't any atall atm.

 

 

Cheers for good comments, sure shel be chuffed when she reads this.

 

Changed the discs and pads onit today, and thought it would be abit rude if I didn't fit the new wheels at the same time :)

there late saph 4x4 cosworth (shark tooth) alloys, they could do with a refurb idealy, but theyl do for now, look pretty good IMO.

Really need to lower it a tad though!

 

 

Will update as and when anything happens :cheers:
