    SHOW SEASON 2019

    I think it is going to be a season of change with most of our normal shows either being replaced with venue or finished altogether ( I.e battlesbridge) hope we can get some show dates up very soon.
  2. Hi den, rear arches mainly, and a few other little patches to weld. Engine out . Repaint all car and fit turbo engine and wiring. Not much really lol

    An extra Inch!!

    Had the same on my mk5 when i got it. If its vinyl i think it may have shrunk, mine did. I tried everything but ended up buying a complete second hand roof for £120 in the end. (mohair this time)

    Xr3i to fiesta turbo

    This is no longer a cheap upgrade, second parts have gone through the roof. Second hand fiesta engines start at approx four hundred pounds,most will need a rebuild, pistons alone cost £500 -£1,000.00 . A recent rebuilt engine sold for £1,800.00 , a turbo will cost £500.00 engine management is expensive to. Sorry to sound defeatist but this now the norm. A cheaper upgrade may be fit a two litre Zetec from a mondeo am sure you can buy a new crated engine for £1,000.00 ish and will give you 150 bhp if mated to good exhaust and induction kit and no need to run a turbo.

    Rear Bumper trim

    No,don’t see them to often, may have to buy a cheap second bumper and remove the trim, it’s not easy to get them out and put them in spot on either. Good luck

    Rear Bumper trim

    Thats not a mk4 in the picture its a mk5a or a mk6 , mk4 is from 1986-1990 trims are totally differant. If its a mk4 86-90 rear black trim you want a guy on ebay sells them.
