    Installing alarm and remote locking in XF

    Trying to install an alarm at the moment and need to know if the door switches are negative or positive switched? On the door switch itself, one wire is green with yellow and one is black with blue. Do I just tap into one of those? If so, which one? Any help/advice appreciated.

    Acceptable Orange peel

    I just repainted my bumpers in the shed, they have orange peel but nowhere near that bad. It could be just the photos but it does look pretty bad compared to what we did in the shed! and Dad and I are no professionals haha It almost looks like a hammer tone finish, I would see if it settles down and if not take it back to the shop

    Gearbox change

    Nope, no plate - just a mark on the inside where there should be a hole

    Gearbox change

    We're doing this exact thing in my Fairlane. Pedal box needs to be change and can be done with the dash in, taking the drivers seat out makes it a lot easier! Like already said, you need a clutch cable and a clutch cable bracket. We found that there was a mark already on the inside of the firewall for the hole - but still needs to be drilled out. When it is all hooked up the firewall is quite weak and bends a lot when the clutch is engaged, so we made a plate that strengthens this up a bit, well a lot. You also need a manual center console the original console needs to be cut as it doesn't quite fit.

    I used plastic modeling paint mixed in with a little bit of thinners, that way its not to thick and heavy to work properly.

    Yeah it comes in a spray can so its nice and easy to use. I wouldn't say I am any where near a professional but the results are really good! Page 1 of my build thread has the pics and the process - http://www.ozfalcon.com.au/index.php?/topic/206-1981-zj-fairlane/

    Im pretty certain it is enamel, the can says 1K FILLCLEAN System. The undercoat was K&H Plasti-Prime. I am pretty certain this isn't in stores any more but Im sure there are other brands that doi the same thing

    I actually did this myself. I got a paint shop to mix up some paint that was colour matched from the door armrest. They didn't get the colour match perfect but they got it close enough, which was good enough for me as I painted all of the interior plastics. It cost around $100 all up from a place called Haymans in Portland Vic. The parts have actually come up really good and it even hardened up the parcel shelf seat belt covers that were turning to dust.

    Sub Box

    Im not too worried that it will break, it's not going to be a ground shaker (I don't listen to that type of music haha). Its only a single 12 inch that probably won't ever get thrashed so it should be all good.
