    All Ford Day 2019, 17th Feb - NEW LOCATION!!

    Great day over all. The dust didn’t concern me too much, nothing I can’t wash off. great to catch up with everyone and meet some ppl and cars in person. looking forward to the next catch up.

    My experience was always 'every single detail of every part of the car... except that bit that you're looking for.'

    A meet somewhere along the way does sound like a good idea

    I'd say that I'll be getting one, the one I had before was great and it was a more basic model, and more importantly because you also have an XF that practically makes us old friends so I'll definitely leave a review.

    Those plugs, what do u call them again... They come in different colours and sizes and you just shove them in and away you... Ear plugs, that's what we were talking about.

    Hahaha well fuck looks like I have no choice then. Ironically she actually broke the old one too. Im keen on this little Bissel from supercheap, my old one was a Bissel Little Green which was a great unit, this one's basically the same but with a few extra attachments. https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/bissell-bissell-auto-spot-clean-carpet-shampooer/

    Now here's a tricky one, Do i buy a new steam cleaner or do I tell my mother in law that she can't eat sultanas in the car anymore... What a prick of a job it is getting those out of the carpets once they've been squashed and rubbed in.

    Mine seemed to think head gaskets and fuel pumps were single use parts, it once got stuck in park at a busy servo which made me pretty popular... it used to drop out all the electrics when it felt like it (wouldn't even leave you with hazard lights), it used to turn its engine oil red somehow which had ppl telling me that it had a trans leak when they saw the puddles it left behind. On the last trip I ever did in it which was from Melbourne to Sydney and back the accelerator got stuck open on the freeway, the gear shifter came disconnected from the trans and then it blew a head gasket on the way home. I wish I could say that it was just a bad trip but that was reasonably standard reliability for that car over any given 2,000 k's haha

    My first car was a Holden Vectra, it was so fantastic that as soon as I had enough spare money that wasn’t being consumed by the Vectra’s ridiculously high number of breakdowns, failures and maintenance costs I bought a BA Falcon and have stuck to Fords since. I’d probably suggest that you throw all Vectra parts into a volcano like in that Lord Of The Rings documentary just to be safe.
  11. The black texta idea is definitely the go for the rivets, I just had a mate point mine out last week and said the same thing. I guess I’ll get onto it next time I’m fighting with the door locks haha. Awesome progress mate, looking forward to seeing it.

    New headunit

    Sony also return to demo mode after power loss. Ive considered replacing my head unit in the XF purely because of this haha. Every time I look at it it’s just bragging about all the things it can do and I’m just thinking “Fuck off Sony, I already bought you!”

    Ive used the Stabil stuff before and found it good, especially with the 2 stroke fuel that tends to sit for a while. Never tried it in a car but the jerry cans always get a dose. I just grab it at supercheap https://www.sta-bil.com.au

    Should we start with the threats? Get the XF finished, or else... Hopefully that sent some shivers through you.
