    EB 1 KENOBI ? OR 2

    I know on the EF/EL's, the wiper cowl and some external plastic trim, is actually painted from factory. Black plastic, painted a mat grey-ish colour. Those door handles were a gloss-ish black from factory. Not sure if they were glossy raw plastic, or coated like EF/EL though.

    I know that at least SOME of the genuine Ford bumper moulding, is/was supplied by the same Bodyside Mouldings, which is sold at Autobarn, Repco, etc. I have a big roll of chrome XE/XF/EA bumper insert, which has the Ford part number on the outside, and it's actually a Bodyside Mouldings box, just turned inside out. Make of that, what you will... The XD bumper chrome moulding is definitely unique though. It's a square profile.

    the steel? to fix rust or the rubber seal? might need to get a cut from a wrecker for the steel? not sure on the rubber seal, would assume ther'd be one

    to be honest, being trim master, i'd expect they would be up there with close enough(it's not an ESP or GT, easy to blow the budget) being NOS, is it going to be flexible and stick properly anymore? i'll leave that to you, but i'd probably go to the trim master, or .. like i did once fitted the generic chrome one and painted it red.

    XE Gauge Cluster

    they are fairly simple cars, i did a 351 conversion to My XD and XE, the XD wires unwrapped just plugged in to the V8 plugs other than the air con wire needed to be longer. the XE was EFI, and i just bought an engine bay loom from a carby one and plugged it in under the dash.. simples(also 6 cyl, repeated the XD step, extending one wire)

    Alright, 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! [emoji3060] [emoji106] 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 [emoji848] I mentioned I had seen cheaper aftermarket item such as this one; https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F303052808760 He said that often these are not the correct profile and don't sit right in the bumper. The question I have is this; * Does everyone agree this is too expensive? * Is it true the aftermarket stuff doesn't fit right? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    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.

    XE Gauge Cluster

    Cheers mate thanks for the help I sorted the temp gauge I plugged the elec choke onto temp and temp onto choke lol. I think I've sorted the fuel gauge I think it needs a earth. And as for oil I have no continuity between cluster and sender. Will look into that tomorrow. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    you have no issues with the senders, somethings earthing somewhere i suspect. .. might need to unwrap the wires and take a look? unless you are missing an earth wire, i cant remember what issue i had back in the day
