Added the final major part to the engine bay today – courtesy of MK Customs of Bolton who dipped the primary and secondary Mountune intake pipes…
Only a colour coded boot release to source now and it will just about to be done.
Revo alloys are now on as is the Mountune spoiler lip, Sunstrip and mudflaps. I did add some tinted wing mirror indicators today but I’m not 100% convinced on the quality so I shall take the stock ones and have them tinted. I do have some matt black wing mirror caps being done too but I’ll decide if they stay once I trial fit.
Last external mod outstanding is gonna be EBC discs and pads (apologies for the orange discs – just been rinsed off).
All in all its taken 2 years to get it close to where I want it without it looking too over the top but I think I’ve finally got the balance right!
Cheers guys – its been fun trying to make it a little different from stock but without swaying too far. Stuff like lowering would be nice but unfortunately not too practical with the speed humps around here. I have to confess I’m more than impressed with the Revo alloys – so easy to clean and the spoke pattern just works with the RS – just need some decent discs behind them now!
Mountune and Ford Performance bits I had custom made – didnt like the generic silver badge or the custard yellow stuff lol. With these cars its a battle to stay individual so custom made stuff is sometimes the only way forward. Like these I had done for the trim by my mirrors
@OverRev Yeah – running the stock tyres on the Revo’s – moved my Pilot Supersports to the front until they’re done and fitted new PS4S to the rears – no difference I can feel in the ride but the PS4s sit very nicely on the rim with a decent amount of rim protection despite going from an 8j to an 8.5 with the Revo. The fill the arches better too without the need for spacers.
Well spotted with the Bosch wipers – my stock ones seemed to perish pretty quickly so I replaced with the Bosch as they have always made good wipers and they were cheaper too.
Forgot to mention the exhaust is the Scorpion Valved Catback with ceramic Daytona tips that Kenny got for me last Black Friday through the club – lovely system and I’m glad I waited cos it was a substantial discount off the rrp.
