    Those are the highest quality graphics I have ever seen. All other cars don't hold a candle to this. BeamDrifter really outdid himself.

    It'll be done when it's done. If you're new here or not read the first page of the thread, please do so. Don't assume the mod is released and dont keep begging for it to be released.

    The MAN Truck has had years of making and it's only recently been released in a Beta. If you are not aware of what "WIP" stands for, it stands for "Work In Progress", which means it's still in the process of being edited and worked on.

    Again, be patient and it will come. Please read the first page of this thread and dont beg for the mod. Simple as that. There's plenty of mods and maps to play with, so go have fun with those until we this mod has been completed.

    From what I can see that is a mk2 (pretty much the same looking as the MK1). Although maybe Its my eyes. Either way, nice fiesta d:)

    it's an automation car's jibbum

    yes it's a MK2, though the only differences are the interior, fenders, entire front end, tailgate (late 1982/3 MK1 Fiesta's used Mk2 Tailgates though, you can tell by a body crease being different) and the CVH engine if you decided not to go for a 1.1 or 957cc option.

    No, I was taken aback by the pure god like quality of the beta. Keep up the good work. The wait will be well worth it when it finally comes out!

    Ok here's some actual content now

    About a week ago I bought this Fiesta for spare parts. It was very cheap and not too far away. It has no papers or keys so I don't have any idea what the model or year is. All I know is that it was originally a German model imported to Finland. The VIN doesn't help at all, it is only 12 digits long. The side stripe reads "cg Rodeo" but there's no information about it on the internet. According to the engine code on the VIN plate the engine is the tiny 957cc with 40 hp. It has a spoiler and slightly lower Monroe springs and shocks so I guess it's a special underpowered sport model. Or maybe someone tuned the base model and taped those stripes just to confuse people. Who knows?

    I had to take out the entire interior because it was all moldy and full of mouse shi*t and wasp nests (about 7 in total). I then pressure washed the whole car including the interior (there was nothing that could be damaged and the water drained out of the rust holes). It also started for a few times but then the starter solenoid stopped working.

    So far I have repaired some of the rust holes and cleaned the dashboard (it was the only thing in the interior that could be cleaned). The big rust hole on the drivers side needs to be fixed before it can be driven. It still needs front seats, I think I'm going to take the seats out of a 406 and install them.

    List of parts I'll install on my other Fiesta:
    • hood
    • door mirror
    • rear bumper
    • taillights
    • windshield
    • springs and shocks if they aren't very badly rusted
    • aaaand maybe the sporty gearknob with an incorrect shift pattern
    By the way both of the interior door handles aren't broken. A while ago I modeled and printed new door handles for the other Fiesta at my school but it's still nice to have extras just in case they break too.


    BeamNG Fiesta updates:
    (I haven't made much progress because I've been working on the mold Fiesta + more schoolwork)

    Door handles and locks look a million times better now

    Tailgate looks a bit smoother, the edges are no longer so sharp

    Rear fog light. The texture is made from the reverse light texture but it doesn't look too bad imo

    12x4 steel wheels and 135R12 tires it reads 145R12 on the side but no one's gonna notice that. i'm too lazy to create new textures
    135r12.jpg
    I also started experimenting with metallic paints and made this for the strato silver XR2. It looks good but ruins the performance and loading it for the first time takes very long. It won't get actually added if I can't fix the performance

    I probably made some other stuff I already forgot about... AND I NEED TO UPDATE THE FIRST POST SOON IT'S SO OUTDATED

    Tried to find some data of this car ,
    only found one mention about a possible fiesta "Rodeo" on this page
    https://fiesta1.de/V1/index.php?ID=9x2x1&lan=en
    (It's a German fiesta club site.)

    also tried to dig though the part catalog.

    http://www.fordopedia.org/parts-catalog/fiesta-mk1/A1.24
    https://ford.7zap.com/en/car/ This one can search by vin , maybe you can try.

    Thanks for linking that German Fiesta site, there was a chassis number breakdown page. I was able to find out that the Fiesta was built in Saarlouis, Germany, in February 1980.
    But where did you find the mention about the Rodeo Fiesta? I haven't found it yet.
