    Light buckets for Fiesta Rally

    Just in case this is useful to others, I have found that these cheap BMW M3 light buckets from eBay (from China) work pretty well on the Fiesta. Just some minor tweaking with a hot air gun and they fit the curves ok:

    Fair warning I just finished it. It was my first paint ever, I did not do so good haha. I think it’s a solid 5/10 maybe I’ll try again later. I’ll post pics tomorrow when it’s done drying and decals applied.

    Ah well, good on you for giving it a go and doing something unique rather than buying a ready painted one. Iím sure itís not as bad as you think!

    Got my light buckets wired up at last - work pretty well and mean I can do a few speed runs at dusk when itís a bit less busy round here! Just need some rears now...

    Finally got the rears fitted too - not a bad fit considering theyíre supposed to be for a BMW! With 3x red LEDs in each they shine through the decals nicely...



    Proper pics to follow soon!
