Had a bit of a surpise today, I noticed my bumper hanging a bit so I just thought it would be just a loose bolt or something but I found this.  The rest of the car is solid as far as im aware, all well I got it sorted dont think I would have been albe to sleep to nite if I didnt fix it straight away  :lol:





How do the arches come off, Im going to go over the hole car once Ive done all the suspension and that.  :roll:

i had that same problem, i was so upset when i seen it on mine, but not too suprised to be honest, haha. the arches are held on with 10mm nuts that screw onto a thread that goes into the arch. mine were covered in crap.
i'd have a peep at your sills too if i was you   :wink:

Same here :)  liking your 5 project ... some really tastey bits u've got going on there  8)  sorry about the rusty spot... that must have been a shock to find hiding under there!  Like someone said..if thats rusted, it might be well worth checking your sills too!  

I'm also a ford fan... I had a Fiesta RS Turbo...  it was my biggest project car so far... crazy to sell it really  :cry:

Both your cars look good toys mate..  keep us posted as you get things sorted...  :wink:

I got them from ebay, work out a fair bit cheaper than buying from k tec etc.    
 Im gonna have to get a new rear cailper now as Ive totally fooked it now I managed to tap in a star bit into the nipple and the star bit just broke  :x  I need to get my car finished I hate it when a job takes longer than expected and when things are broken etc all well should all be worth it  :lol:
