My Candy Apple Red 5
« on: 22:58, Wed 11 August 2010 »
Hi all,
This is my second 5, my first one i bought had a lot done engine wise and also looks wise, so decided to get rid and start one off myself, bought the car standard like this

Had a fair bit of lacquer lift and thanks to it being red had faded quite a bit too.
So i got it resprayed in candy apple red  8)

Thats it just after the respray.
After that had a series of problems, new carb, starter motor, then flywheel and another starter motor lol.
Then my turbo oil seals went, so i decided to put some time into her.
Pics soon to come but this is the spec how i have made her.
Candy Apple Red Paint
Cades Eros 15" Alloy wheels black with silver dish
Smoothed bump strips
Koni Adjustable suspension lowered 50mm all round
Fiesta RS turbo recaro seats
Checkered interior panels and other gloss black panels
Fibreglassed pod gauge dash board mount
Group A Carb
T25 Turbo
Pace Intercooler
Blitz Blow off valve
Full set of Samco's
Induction kit

Thats all at the minute, but after having her on the road for 2 weeks the waterpump belt fell off and car overheated, after letting it cool down it hydrauliced.
So now going to stick a set of uprated gaskets on it, so that its safe to run slightly bigger boost on the turbo.
Also hoping to get a front mounted intercooler on it.

Comments welcome :)
