    Amazing how it almost looks like a car again! Are you going to fill in the LPG filler hole in the quarter panel?

    Where should such a thread live? In the Car Yard section, or somewhere else?

    Get new pair of plastic tabs/clips... they can only sustain being caught on curbs, a limited number of times. If the bumper screw holes themselves have snapped off, then you'll need to plastic weld the bumper bar first.

    That coupe trolley, looks awesome! It looks so much easier to work around now. I need to build one of those jiggers... Years ago, I bought a bunch of really expensive solid rubber/nylon braked wheels for a car trolley. Made by Fallshaw, rated to 500kg each, from memory.

    I know on the EF/EL's, the wiper cowl and some external plastic trim, is actually painted from factory. Black plastic, painted a mat grey-ish colour. Those door handles were a gloss-ish black from factory. Not sure if they were glossy raw plastic, or coated like EF/EL though.

    I know that at least SOME of the genuine Ford bumper moulding, is/was supplied by the same Bodyside Mouldings, which is sold at Autobarn, Repco, etc. I have a big roll of chrome XE/XF/EA bumper insert, which has the Ford part number on the outside, and it's actually a Bodyside Mouldings box, just turned inside out. Make of that, what you will... The XD bumper chrome moulding is definitely unique though. It's a square profile.

    Did you knock on their door, and offer to put it in the garage for them?

    Try playing the Weird Science soundtrack in the Gemini... That'd sound pretty cool I reckon!

    I think we all agree, the best find (by far ), is that road map carpet!

    Regret it mentally or physically though? After half a lifetime of manual work, my knees are not in the best shape. I can't imagine running for 10km... Bike riding would be ok though.

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

    Yes I do... I'm working on that in the background, after a rough couple of years (more like 6-7yrs). We're setting up the raw framework, for regular structured events/cruises - which I need to speak to you about. Notice how (as of tonight), the forum now has an Events Calendar in place. Yeah, I do need to drop that at your place. 100%

    13.7v is quite normal for an XE/XF alternator. If it was 12.7v, I'd start questioning things... 13.7 is good.

    That trim piece, holds the edge of the boot carpet in place, just behind the rear seats, when you fold them down.

    If they were orange, they'd maybe be ok?...

    BA/BF Falcon I believe... Note the engine/trans, somersaulting over the guard rail...

    Cheap to replace/rebuild though... Just think of modern day 6spd Manuals and Auto's!
