  1. Lol. Sorry mate was just nursing my forearm after missing the star picket other day...... lol. Arm meet Gympie.... gympie.... arm... After 3 days icing think its ok but need xrays next week after long weekend... Just to be safe...... bit sore and one position of use hurts a fair bit. Meh... had worse. Anyhoo... yeah Ford directly gave me that figure for all XG gli utes in 96. Outbacks would be a single digit number out of that I'd think... no more than 10 I'd guesstimate... probably less. Back to rest. Queens Birthday long weekend here.... Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  2. I keep telling them Im special Chestnut........ yet they still make me sit in the naughty corner and throw peanut shells at me between beers....... Think your right on the XH on etis being lumped in with the XG build numbers. My 46 XG total for 96 was direct from Ford pre closure. Chaffin at the bit to see what ol Frankenstein there is.... even if its fark all.... been fun trying to piece it together... but I think you lucked across something rare..... Prototype anyone??? 1 of. Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  3. Try looking at the trim codes. XG Outback G1 Vinyl Saville Cloth. Or model code is 45571- Ford XG GLi ute.... Which is the basis of all models. Anything after that must be XH. Hope that helps. Think saville is not an interior on xh.???? Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah mate, never got call back from them, will try an email or something.
  5. Hey Chestnut, For some reason I havent been able to see your pics for awhile in this thread. Dunno if its same for others. The bit on shock from memory slips on bottom of shock, sits about 1/2cm from the shock body all around and is 8-10cm high. 3 holes in the bottom but they are not round... like a gusset welded into a tube. Sorry for the late reply. Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  6. Buggered Dean, all done, just get mate to help me move ute. Took a big chunk outta me thumb putting dart board bracket on...... lol. Betadine is my friend.... and bandaids hold stuff together... Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  7. Sorry Chestnut.... Geez plot thickens on this one..... Prototyping for the XH would of started before your build date on that XG. Im thinking its the prototype for the rear styling and cab... no front end e series style but all they could try in a standard XG before the new bodies were ready for production. Can't wait to see what Ford say....... Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  8. Maaaattteee... that is sweet. Must of felt good behind the wheel again. Happy slidin, duckin and diving!! Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  9. If it has a gas tank under back the wheel carrier is usually cut out from behind but they leave the door and hinged area at rear. Maybe just was easier to remove all and xh bumper it. Got me interested to find out whats goin on here... There are hybrids about. Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  10. Dave is never wrong.... he needs that printed on a t shirt........... hahaha. Lol. All this time I thought it was 21..... just to find out its still in pre primary. Same defence Garry Glitter used...... Haha... sell it cheap he says.... lol. Now hes hooked..... such is the power of the 96 ute....... Get that cluster son! Probably person who got it was just looking for panel with tacho.... grab any xg one with tacho... he'll probably swap... Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  11. Stupid Fat Penguin! Lol (Blues Brothers hilarous scene) Cant trust lil bastards that are sooooo black and white...... Hehe. Yeah mate will help if need to move anything big in or out. Hoping to get some more done before summer but if can..... aircon for house... my dream....... lol. Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  12. All Outbacks start life as a Gli ute from the factory... so they get that code. A verfication letter or the codes will confirm if it was tickford tickled to an Outback model. Good read on the mystery ute.... s pac. Sweet. Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
