No updates for a while. But plans are in motion for a few little upgrades.

On the list for the next couple of months is new wheels and tyres. Exhaust and new shocks and springs all round. 👌🏻

So its been a while since my last update. It has been slow progress.

MIJ system has been fitted and sounds perfect 👌🏻

I have acquired a bonnet with the XFR vents and Im waiting to get that sprayed so I can fit it 👌🏻

New ford performance number plate holders

I have also managed to lay my hands on another complete flint/Alcantara interior 😍

Also waiting on delivery of a set of final face side skirts. As I want to remove mine to have all the sills checked and painted. And needed a spare set in case mine were damaged during removal. So they will get a fresh coat of paint ready to be refitted.

Then hopefully wheels off and freshly diamond cut.

All this before ford fair 🙈😊

Great thread and interesting reading. What set up did you go for at MIJ? My estate originally had the full sport (2 small rear silencers) when we did the 1st group day 4? Years ago? Took it back Sat before last and had a small centre silencer fitted which makes it a lot more sociable on long journeys (not that I am doing many of those anymore!)

Sure was a great day. Think mine is now classed as mid-sport and a half! Full credit to MIJ with the after service, mine been back twice now, 1st for a small blow on one of the rear silencers and they replaced all the rubbers FOC and did same again other weekend when they made up and fitted the extra silencer. Fully understand how you feel. You put a lot of hard work and effort into your ST and made it a fantastic car to be rightly proud of.
@markjlev where did you get your brake callipers refurbished?

Hi Bill. Long time no speak.

http://www.biggred.co.uk/ they are only in Worcester and will do drop off and collection. Weir lane. Great quality workmanship.

I have a small centre box to cancel out the drone on a journey and then straight pipe the rest of the way. Sounds perfect. A nice deep rumble.

craig you need to get another one mate. I had a few different cars after my silver one but wasn't as happy driving them. This white one now isn't going anywhere ❤

there is a couple of infrastructure popping up for sale lately on Facebook. I was tempted myself. But gonna wait until I have this one up to scratch. Mine lives in the garage . I take her out on weekends. Looking forward to the summer when I can spend some time doing some work on her. Hoping to get a fair bit done ready for Ford fair mate.

Hi, yes its been way too long. Life etc got in the way (again)
Hoping to get more involved again once we get the current house move out the way. Did you sell your last ST to someone that worked at JLR Solihull? Im sure I saw it a few times parked up there before I was transferred to Whitley.

Maybe nextyear once my finances are in order. Id quite like to buy a total dog of a car and make it a good one. My infrared one was a real minger when I bought it and look how she turned out :)

@bill w yes mate. But I lost track of it. Its not been taxed since last year and MOT Ran out in January 😢. I would buy it back. I know what you mean about life mate. Only since buying my white one have I really had any real spare time. Hopefully get round a few shows this year. Im taking mine to simply ford and ford fair. But not how show worthy she will be. She is a very clean car. But by no means mint in my opinion 🙈😂.

@Justcos I know exactly what you mean mate. I was lucky the white one popped up for sale when it did. I paid a decent amount for her but the expensive jobs have been done. Apart from a respray just to get her protected everything else is things I can do on the drive. These cars get expensive to the enthusiast 😂. Im picking up a spare complete interior today after work. Just because the flint Alcantara is so rare I want to make sure Im covered lol if anything should ever happen 😂😂😂.

Its been a while since my last update. Managed to get a few things completed.

Managed to lay my hands on an original ford reversing sensor system. Its all fitted now. Just waiting on the sensors being painted. Then its fit them to the bumper and connect the module 👌🏻

Next up is heated rear seats ☺ Managed to get a rear bench and the centre console with the buttons etc. So once I have swapped the trim over that should all be fitted and working 👌🏻

I have a bonnet in the body shop at the moment having the XFR vents all smoothed in and full respray in diamond white No2 of course.

A fell set of genuine 19 RS wheels are being collected this weekend coming. Then in for a refurb before being fitted to the old girl.

The new wheels mean I need to get my backside in gear and sort out the ASBO lol

Other than that. The end of April she is booked in at my local Ford Specialist for a Full service. All the bells and whistles ☺ Wouldnt trust my local ford dealership as far as I could throw them.

Oh and some 3D gel plates and genuine ford plate holders.

Oh and did the power fold mirror mod

Also changed the power steering fluid.
