    • Does anyone know if a 425 will clear the bonnet on a crossflow  XF? Which manifold?
    • Repco had a sale on... A pair of cheapskin seat covers, job done
    • who am I kidding? I have no money to justify recovering the seats lol. 

      Especially with my work start date getting pushing back another month. 
    • Just needs a little duct tape for that "period correct" repair
    • Its Saddle, and its already available. 
      in the correct pattern and all.        the clock im not worried about. the seat, really really upsets me. the passenger seat was perfect until then   that photo was when it first happened, within a few minutes of sitting on it, it tore even further. now its let go, its just going to continue to rip.    Im probably going to look around and see if i can get it done a little cheaper. ill probably get a price to recover the passenger seat, rather than doing the Recaro. 
    • for Me.. 
      for that small rip, i'd put up with it some more..  bit like the clock bezel.. its not perfect, but its damn close.. leave it   there are tutorials on how to pull apart a recaro seat.. i wouldn't even be surprised if you can buy a brown seat trim for them even (far cheaper than $1500)  
    • Sucks when that happens. All told, it's probably better to happen on your watch, rather than a passenger doing it?   I believe that colour is available (or an extremely close reproduction). It's the same as XB vinyl isn't it - Escorts being locally produced at the time? I've not long been through the entire vinyl catalogue, looking for a match to F-truck scheels.   What about recaro's, done in original vinyl, or the RS Escort chocolate brown cordruoy material? (called Beta Cloth)      
    • in the process of mucking around with the dash panel today, i leant on the passenger seat the wrong way and split it     No i dont have a single good front seat for the car 😕 or not any that match the interior.    The driver's original seat is split in the same spot, the recaro in the driver's side is ok but doesnt match, and the passenger side recaro (in storage) needs completely recovering before its useable.    So what do i do?    Recover the original passenger seat, knowing i cant get the correct trim now, and will be cheaper than the recaros to cover how i want (Recaros @ $1500 per seat) or spend the money and get one of the Recaros done, and run with mismatched recaros until i can afford to have the second one done?   
    • While the weather has been horrendous in melbourne, I started working on the gauges today.    I bought a set of 3 (pictured below) but decided that now that the in dash temp gauge works properly, that is enough. 
      So I bought a clock to go with them instead of the temp gauge. Unfortunately, even though the clock is the same model range of gauges, the bezel is different     So, set of 3 that match with 2 temp gauges in the car     or;    matched oil pressure and volts, and a slightly different clock...     I decided to keep the clock.    Test fitting...
      I originally had the clock on the left, but decided to put it centre to make it symmetrical.      from Driver's POV. so the far right hand gauge is blocked by steering wheel, in this case, Volts gauge.        wiring at gauge end done...     it all runs through 3 plugs, and directly from the battery, via a relay switched by the ignition switch. it means they wont draw from the ignition circuit.     lights all work. all thats left to do is a bit of wiring in the car end, need to buy 1 more 2 way plug, then install it all back in the car. then i just have to install the oil pressure sender and its good to go. should be all in and operating tomorrow
