That’s very similar to mine dean. My sedan has some chrome under the bonnet so I got it made out of stainless as I couldn’t weld stainless at the time. I made my ute one out of mild steel and painted it white
could add to this with ..
reinforce the pedal box in a similar fashion
i only have the one photo mid progress, but it got the hole in center welded to the back of the pin and more on the outside.(cooled at times so the plastic didn't melt on the brake pedal shaft)
overkill would be to weld a sleeve to the brace above, like this one below
Well I found the fuel leak in my XF. Right in the injector rail there is a little crack. So the whole thing is out.
My question is repair. Any existing/second hand rails could potentially have the same issue.
My question is, is there a later model (eg E
Series for instance) that will fit the XF without too much stuffing around?

I do like the idea of the blue - on white, I think I might do it. The floors are stuffed and need welding and repainting anyway. I'll most likely use truck bed liner to pain the floor and leave the rest of the cab white inside, then go blue out and white Sunraysia wheels (which I already have).
Yes, I'm keeping as much of the stock dash as I can. I fired it up last night and it all works as far as I can tell so that's a huge plus.
The aircon unit has had its day (no surprise) but all the components are there. I may see about pulling it down for a refurb and use a more modern impeller and motor for it. If its too far gone internally, I'll just use a knee-freezer type I have laying around from a previous build.
More as it comes, I have the day off tomorrow so hopefully can get her up and running. My main concern earlier was finding a VIN to make 101% sure she's not stolen etc... and she's clean as a whistle so lets get to it.
