Hey everyone! So my project Fiesta ST continues and the latest additions have been completed today. Just wanted to share a few pics of what was done. First, a big thank you to www.bells-auto.com for the fabrication, prep work, paint and assembly of the spoiler components. This is a family owned business and the attention to detail on all their work is just amazing. Gail, Ralph, Ryan and Josh Bell are great people! Second, I want to thank David and his dad at www.rolotech.net for the fast quality wrapping of the lower rear diffuser, mirrors and headlights. The textured 3M carbon wrap looks much better in person. I'll definitely be going back for additional work on the front bumper. I think it is funny that initially, I had no intentions of modifying the ST as it was just going to be a fun commuter. Who was I kidding, half the fun is making it your own.

wait, what, u change the oem st spoiler for a oem non st spoiler to put that wing? not felling that spoiler
but the front splitter looks sexy
Yeah, the mounting brackets required the installation of the base spoiler. I had no issues with how the oem ST spoiler looked but I've always been a fan of rally cars, especially the Fiesta R5 variant from M-Sport. It's all good though, personal preferences aside I thought it turned out better than I expected. i also have the roof vent as well but I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I should have that mounted...

Love the 3 door wide body rally car. I actually don't mind the spoiler.

Lol I guess the general consensus on the spoiler is a neg! No biggy I love it! The front splitter is made by Bojix Design. The three pieces on the car that are true carbon are the rear spoiler, side skirts and front splitter. The parts that are wrapped in 3M carbon are the side mirrors and rear lower diffuser. Headlights are wrapped in matte black.

I like the spoiler, skirts, splitter, and the wrapped lower part of the rear diffuser. Thumbs up all around in my book!

I don't really think the spoiler works with the lines of the 5-door non-widebody, but it's not my car and it's kind of nice seeing someone do something that's different.

Are they interested in making any more side-skirts?

It really is a shame that Ford decided not to bring over the 3-door but my wife would've killed me for choosing the "impractical" version lol! Anyhow, I've had the sideskirts for over a year now but Bojix's latest SEMA car had them including another built ST so I'm assuming they should have them in stock. I remember I had to call them to see if they had them in stock after checking last years wide body ST and mine had to be ordered. I would call them and ask for Haro. They are located literally right behind Citrus Ford in Ontario.

Also, I forgot to mention if anyone noticed that they added a gull style rear spoiler extension. It is really subtle but I remember talking to Haro months ago about a possible production release. It's a fairly clean design for folks who want to keep it low key.

are you talking about the Gurney Flap added to the factory spoiler? If so, I would be hugely interested in that. The spoilers shown on the SEMA cars look to be the 3dCarbon spoilers with the Gurney Flap molded into place and not a seperate part that could be added to the factory spoiler.

I am hugely impressed with the 3M DiNoc carbon wrap on the rear diffuser. I have done a lot of work with the stuff and can never get it to come out right.

You're probably right. It does look like the 3dcarbon spoiler. I'm sure they didn't have time to fabricate a one off since they're usually pressed for time.

Dave a Rolotech said they had to use two pieces to wrap the rear diffuser to avoid the wrap from shrinking too much since it has to be stretched over. If you look closely at the pic, you could see that there is one sheet wrapped over the top and ends right over the lip.

That is how I would wrap the diffuser for the same reason. One strip to cover the top and vertical part, and then a larger peice to cover the bottom. Maybe I will order some more DiNoc and give it a shot. Can you post a picture of the car outside showing the entire rear from eye level?

well crap, looks like I will need to get more DiNoc on order. Keep an eye on the section near the exhaust tips as the vinyl gets cranky when exposed to heat.

Overall, very nicely done!

Haha nice, glad I could inspire you! Thanks for the heads-up on the exhaust heat. He had a car with its valve cover wrapped in the same material so hopefully that is a good indication of its heat resiliency.

I have my engine cover, air box top, and the tube from the bumper to the air box wrapped. Sections of the engine cover wants to lift from the heat. I found that removing the ST badge and running the vinyl under the plaque helps. 3M makes "adhesive promoter" to help get it to stick better, but I did not use it. If I decide to re-wrap the cover, I will use the promoter stuff. Probably do the same for the diffuser to help it stick.

Looks great! Seems like a lot of people are opting towards wrap for that custom look. It is nice to have the option to switch back or do something different without breaking the bank.

I wrapped the LED bezels and hatch strip on my 2011 Fiesta in an attempt to get rid of the chrome. Planned on doing the belt-line moulding, but never got around to it. Did the HVAC and shift surround molding on the interior as well.
