Big Hi from across the pond, just registered as I've noticed a few of you over at ffoc.co.uk. Thought I'd share a few pics of my ST170 Estate, obviously the wagons don't appeal to everyone but it suited my needs perfectly:

Little bit of a diary:

The day I collected my st170 estate:



And a few months later:

Full OEM Xenon conversion, Collection Skirts, Bluefin, simota induction, Eibachs



A few month on from that:

Sporting a facelift:



Then I went off on one:

1st off the wheels were refurbed white, a full RS trim modified to fit the estate, interior lighting, sound system, powerflow full system incl de-cat, mk1.5 collection grille, various engine chrome (for show use only).




And now:
Went with the collection front, swapped front RS seats for later items, custom one off door cards




Ohh and last week I removed the old engine to fit a new unit with very low mileage (6K) so I will post a couple pics once It's all sorted, ohh forgot I also took the liberty to convert the manual heating to digital climate control.

[mecry]


Won't be like this long (Engine is going in in the next couple of days).

Great site btw..

It's just getting a direct replacement with mega low miles as the car has now covered 150,000 miles and the old one threw a pulley the other week, it has had all It's running gear renewed along with the brakes, trim and just about everything else so the new engine is just to keep it fresh.

Cheers for the compliments guys and loving some of the cars in the forecourt on here.

Hi wagon ST from a fellow UK newbie!

Your car is awesome... Very inspirational, i'm looking for a collection front bumper now! LOl.

Have you any plans for the rear lights? I modded mine with a spot of semi-tinting...but it didn't turn out too well....

I plan to use a clearcoat with a little panther black mixed in to coat the rears, and I'm currently removing the lenses on the Xenons to wash the silver off crazy that a damp cloth washes it off to reveal black underneath.

Engine is all but ready to go back in, just need a couple more strong shoulders and a miracle regarding the good old british weather

Great looking wagon, althought I liked the silver rims better than painted white. Do you do the engine swap right out there on the street? What if a lorry hits your car mate? Do you have a garage?
