Miss Pink Fiesta ST150
I got into cars when I was around 15 as most of my mates were older than me. I got hooked into learning how to repair and paint cars as I loved seeing changes take shape and make something unique.
By the time I had got to 17 it had really taken hold, I was installing stereo systems exhausts and other mods for people and getting people finding me to help them out with ideas they had and making them into reality for them.
It really got serious when I bought a Ford Fiesta XR2i that's when the blue blood really started flowing. So from a standard car to a race engined lowered custom XR2i in just 3 months and from there it's been no looking back. So after a couple more of Dagenham's finest I ended up buying probably one of the best known Dagenham Dustbins, a Ford Focus Mk2 ST.
The Focus has been a 9 year labour of love so far it has had a few alterations in that time the most recent being getting it to a healthy 417.3 bhp and painted in a full Custom Paints Sparkle Purple and ASBO livery.
This car however did give me a bit of a hiccup in the form of an official Section 59 so this opportunity was taken to take the Focus off the road and rely make it stand out so watch this space for another mad build on its way.
So to go back a little bit 6 years ago I officially started ASBOS it all started in my parents garage and with a lot of hard work and late nights we get to ASBO Autos Performance Centre where we are now doing full custom paintwork and body modifications and now including full mechanical services including everything from an oil change to full forged engine builds.
Once the decision was made to take the focus off the road I needed to organise a daily so after a quick search a salvage Fiesta ST150 was found. It was firstly planned to just repair it get it back into its original Performance Blue and daily it. But as with all plans they never stay still so it was time to do something and that was I wanted a white van so where do we go I though classic Diamond White or maybe even Ice White no not good enough I wanted this ST to rely stand out.
So we started off into a full van conversion, repairing the rear damage and fully metal panelling out the rear window spaces and getting it back to a rolling shell while I decided on the final colour it was at this point that the engine decided out of nowhere that it didn't like its bottom end any more and promptly spat it into the sump. So a new engine was also needed as well, it would appear that it was not going to be as easy as I thought to sort a simple daily.
So it was settled that another engine was ordered and my colour of choice being Xrillac White so the final steps were in motion. A full respray including its door shuts a new engine and it was starting to come together. Still needed more so a shopping trip with TRC and Maxton was in order for front and side splitters and a nice rear diffuser.
Decat with sportex cat back system, Maxton designs rear diffuser custom pinstriped Trc side skirt splitters and front splitter also pinstriped 35mm lowering springs all round. The interior has a custom floor and boot build woth 12" sub with the front seats re trimmed in pink and white carbon fibre look vinyl. All speakers swapped out for alpine and kenwood in the stock speaker holes Tinted windows all round
Interior needed a bit of something so I had the front seats retrimmed in white and pink diamond stitch to match in with the outside. Finally some company signwriting pink wheels and custom gel badge overlays really finished off the outside and helped it to stand out. Where ever “Miss Pink'' goes it always grabs attention and really helps to show off what we do here at Asbo Autos Performance Centre
