PostSubject: Another newbie thanks to SlackyBoi!   Wed Oct 17, 2012 6:17 am

Hello, SlackyBoi (aka Chris) mentioned earlier about this forum and suggested I join up.

My name is Andy. I recently picked up a Mondeo ST TDCi in black to run about in. Few plans for it, including exhaust, lowering, bigger front mount and a remap, but first it needs a good polish to remove all the swirls the previous owner left in the paint, and to refurb the wheels to get rid of some lovely kerbing.

I also own a saxo vts which has turned into a bit of a long term project to eventually provide a bit of weekend fun. Its currently pretty much a bare shell after being resprayed, just sitting waiting for rebuilding over winter (hopefully). The engines been rebuilt ready to drop in, complete with a Rotrex supercharger conversion on it. Hopeing to have it built and ready to use next year. The ST will have to do for now!

Think you either love or hate the french tins. Good for what they are, but there are much comfier cars out there, although most are not so much fun imo! With good power, suspension and brakes though, they are awesome. Mine was awesome fun with the charger on for the short time i had it on the road. Looking forwards to getting it back out.
