If the weather holds out here I'll start working on those this weekend.
To finish the bucks/plugs I need to remove them from the car and work on the under side of them. Then apply the finish coat of paint and they'll be ready to make a mold off of
Started to install the fog lights and I had a bad bulb, so I got on line to get a replacement.
A bulb was just a few dollars less than what I can get a complete unit for, with the bulbs. So I ordered 2 new complete fog light assemblies.
Try to figure that one out.
Latest update in the saga of getting S009 back on the road.
I've never been able to get the power steering to work( searched all over the internet but got nothing) so I got a scanner that will scan the steering circuit
Well its wired correctly (according to the diagrams) but according to the scanner it needs the engine control module and the abs control module for it to work. I can get those items at the pick a part yard and they wont cost that much.
So now I have to decide if I should get those items and wire them in or leave the steering as is. The power steering column doesn't have any more drag to it than a manual steering column has.
Kind of thinking that I've gone this far installing it, why not make it work.
I’d say at least experiment with those modules to see if you can fully set it up. (It would feel sooo good.)
Although it’s not as elegant of a solution, I think I’ve read about people wiring an electric unit to a switch or a potentiometer so they could manually turn on power steering just for parking.
Totally different topic: What is your ground clearance at your new under-nose section?
Oh, also, have you found ANY product that can bond to a modern OEM flexible bumper? I noticed you were using a lot of aluminum tabs and rivets. But energy then, did you need some special type of body filler to finish it out? I can’t get anything to stick to my front bumper mockup.

Lowest point is 4.5 inches.

To bond plastic to plastic I used my plastic welder and add a steel mesh in spots . To bond different materials to plastic I used THIXO Epoxy. It held the parts in place and then I added the expanding foam to the back to stiffen the structure.

Not sure where this is. Could you post a picture of it.

I had the same problem in some spots where I used alot of filler. what I did was roughen the area with 40 grit sand paper and drilled a few small holes in the area for the filler to grip to. Then I applied a thin first layer and allowed that to cure over night. The next day I gave that layer a light sanding with 40 grit and applied the additional layers. That seemed to work for me
I used Ever Coat Z Grip filler. (I think that was the name of the filler. )
Ford Fiesta or Ecosport 2013 to 2017. This kit allow you to install aFord Fiesta or Ecosport from 2013 to 2017 electric power steering column into any other vehicle. Normally these steering columns part number always start withC1BC3C529.
I think the next big challenge is building the new side pods.
The controller box for the steering has 3 settings for how much effort is needed to turn the steering wheel.
Right now I have it on the lowest (more effort) setting and it feels pretty good.
