Updates! Haltech & LS coils are in, wiring loom is almost finished, just needs a final tidy up before being hooked up.
 
 
...but the most exciting part is the dash.

It's been a long time between updates. It's been on the road for a few months now but I haven't been doing much driving. Anyway here's some photo's of how it is currently.
 
I think the whole thing has come up pretty well. There are a few more things to sort, as there always will be haha.
 
(Ignore the strut top position, I threw it together like that and has since had a wheel alignment!)

That looks really neat and I bet it goes well.
How did you go with engineering the Zetec?

Hey mate sorry for the late reply, don't get on a computer very often these days! It does go quite well for what it is, always plenty of room for improvement.
I haven't got it engineered yet, but I don't expect any issues. The conversion itself was done by a previous owner and that part of it was done very well and uses the standard g/box and engine crossmembers.
 
The body of the car is at the tail end of receiving somewhat of a freshen up so I'll post some more pics once it's finished and when I get a chance, then I think I will leave it alone for a while and just enjoy driving while the weather is good.

I got the car back last night after it being away for a makeover of sorts.
 
Colour is Guards Red (Porsche colour)
Wheels are 13 x 7
 
Couldn't be happier if I tried. Now I just need to set up the front end properly and get to driving.
 
WARNING: It is *very* red.

Thanks lads, words can't describe how stoked I am. It's the first time I've gone for a colour change with a car and I was really nervous about it because quite frankly I loved it in Wedgewood Blue as it was before...but I do love a nice red MK2.
