I have been a little slack with updates on this thread of late. That is not to say I haven't been doing anything towards my project. I may not have turned a spanner on the car yet, however my primary goal at the moment has been one of research to provide a direction for this build, as well as design of my small-ish garage and acquisition of parts for the XF.
Also while this has been going on I have been cutting through red tape to try and arrange a parking permit from the council allowing me to move the pulsar out of the garage to the street. I have now successfully obtained said parking permit, hooray!
Even better than the parking permit is I have located the majority of the parts I think I need for this build, bigger hooray!
One such part I have located is the NOS number plate housing. The guy that has this also has a NOS roll of the Red S Pack moulding strip that fits into the bumpers. He wants $200 for this which to me seems a bit steep I mentioned I had seen cheaper aftermarket item such as this one;
i tried to gernie off the black from the plastic cowl,but still some refuses to budge,if i can find a eb around here thats wrecking i might just grab the cowl off another car,or fully sand this one back and hit it with the black bumper spray.
yup i offerd her five hundred for it,400 more than its worth,but she felt more secure with the car just sitting there,it dont bother me cause i got the eb from the next street,but she will tap out soon enough.
