    Did the simmoms fill the guard or leave a gap? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    I just want the right tyre to fill the gap in the rear guards. Looks silly especially looking from behind the huge gap between the tyre and the guard. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Mate to know how spot on it is you have to really know your shit it looks real close to original. If you live in Vic close to me (caroline springs) come down and take a look. I forgot the name of the material but can find out for you. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    It was, but is to expensive to get the original so it's a velour off of a ford territory. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Thanks mate! Those globes look awesome on that XB. Only thing holding me back from them are the price [emoji23] they will put a big hole in my pocket if I do end up getting them lol. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    There are actually globes on the car now. I'm having a hard time choosing what rims to go with. I'm thinking of the original globes, 19" globes, 15x8 globes on the rear or 19" simmons. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Hey guys so after almost 5 years of waiting to get a good enough income I have started the Build on my XD. The Story: This XD is sentimental to my family, my dad has had this car since he was 17 and has past it onto me. I have contemplated and wanted to start the build now since I was 12-13, i really started getting involved when I was 14-15 and decided to join the group, the amount of support and help you guys gave me was unbelievable for also being so young. Anyways about the car, it's a 1981 factory 250 crossflow swapped to 302 Clevo out of a XE. The car also has little rust which is great. The car is tired and needs a resto which was why I got a full time income as a apprentice sparky and decided to crack into the build. First day was basically getting all the interior out and all chrome trim peices etc, a usual start to a resto. Then was the motor and tranny. The car is basically stripped and is getting a bit of TLC as we speak such as new underbody rust protection. I recently took the trim to Michael from Deluxe trimming in Delahey and he did an awesome job for the really cheap price. Motor is at a motor mechanic recommended by a long time mechanic of ours and he specialises in ford motors. He said the motor is tired and is getting a rebuild such as a re bore, new rings etc. The car is getting a blow over in the oven hopefully next month if the panel beater dosnt Fuck us over again. Bellow is all the photos I have currently taken IN ORDER, I will regularly be updating the thread. Also for up to date info follow my Instagram build page @1tuffxd302 Cheers guys.

    Guys I have finally started the Build on my XD. After turning 18 in June last year and finishing school I have found myself an apprenticeship as a electrician. It's been a good 3 months into the build now and you can follow it all on Instagram @1tuffxd302 Cheers Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
