Building a Fiesta ST...very approximate plan is mostly stock + suspension + bits modeled after M-Sport R2
Friend sends me an email...and this wasn't the first one, but it's the one that finally cajoled me.
That car went for about $4k - I thought it was too expensive, so I kept looking...
This one hit my price point, but it has significantly more damage. Online, it's a roll of the dice on what exactly is damaged.
Both frame rails are bent from the impact, broken tie rod, and everything in the front end module is smashed.
It's a salvage title, so the first order of business is to get it road worthy and get it re-titled as rebuilt, then we can do the rally prep.
Once the bumper beam is out of there, you can see it took a pretty good wack. 2014 is the first year the Fiesta passed small frontal overlap impact tests. Anecdotal evidence suggest the left side structure is modified from 2013, and based on this, it sure moves a lot.
Andrew and some buddies spent a couple of hours and peeled off the bad, and pulled a bit on the frame with prybars. This is our starting point.
