  5. Lol have to be organised the work roster changes a bit so I'm either on a plane flying to or from western oz. Story with this cars was I flew red eye Perth to Brisbane, brought car, jumped back on plane to Adelaide that arvo. After 8 days at the mine I work at. So pulled about 6,500km last week. Parts have been arriving (in a way these are easier to get bit for than an XY), so now have brake hoses, panel repair kits (pans and fenders) speedo cable indicator stalk etc. Seatbelts I ordered from Brisbane along with the sunroof motor. Missus is cracking jokes about the mail room in the house, not saying why have you got all this shit. Love her.
  6. I work a roster lol

  12. she'll do that with the ol 4.5 and a borgwarner s363.... Anyway, its on a truck, update to follow when it gets to Adelaide
  13. Yeah put it on a truck to Adelaide this afternoon. Its a tank, and even with a standard exhaust sound tits. Rides like a champ, and has a surprising amount of grip. No feel whatsoever in the steering and thats by xf standards. Im in two minds about whether I do a bit of work or just rego on it asap and cruise. Does have some rust in the passenger door, RH rear fender and some spots just starting underneath. Was kept in a shed with a tumble drier and this and the cracked Schulz means theres a bit of surface corrosion but nothing really major yet.so need a bit of wire wheel work
  14. Sooo.... I brought a turbo a while back..... with the intent of jamming it on my XF and enjoying some boost. But then the wife, said you know you should do it legally, which technically because its an ADR37 engine is highly naughty in SA. But anything pre 76 is fair game on the original manufacturers motor. So this got me thinking, and she was keen for another car to add to the menagerie. I wanted V8, she wanted a wagon, it was looking like a holden or ford wagon but people want stupid money for a v8 wagon these days. So she said no to a Kingswood wagon (which I quite like) and cost killed anything XR to XY. (mainly because I don't like the fat arse look of the xa-xc wagons. But she was keen on a Mercedes, mainly because she liked the Tv series hart to hart when she was a kid. But that was an SL, and the convertible was too ostentatious for her. And yeah a yellow convertible is shit. So all this led to looking at the C107/R107 Mercedes. She wanted sunroof, I wanted V8. Match made in heaven. So I present this. der panzerwagen. On my way to Brisbane (from Perth tonight) to pick it up and jam it on a truck to Adelaide. A 450slc 2 owners 178k, some rust (but manageable), sunroof, clunk, 6 bolt main M117.986 v8 motor and 8.8 :1 compression iron block. k-jetronic they joys of mechanical semi-electronic injection. Plans are Put on truck get rust repair panels (they're easier to get than shit for a falcon surprisingly) repaint Add turbo
