    I’m sorry if it’s been asked, I looked but couldn’t find it. Is there a way of indentifying a XD 28 spline by the I’d tag? 78DA 4005 DA if that helps sorry, ask me about Patrol stuff and I know it inside out :) cheers fellas

    XD Fairmont Ghia Rebuild

    Sorry, I'm talking about the skin only. . Just looking for advice weather to repair whats there, or use a complete skin, and any tips of removing a skin from one vehicle and reusing it. The skin of the XF has zero rust, I like the idea of using the full skin as it means rust wont potentially come back somewhere else. Spot welds are ok to remove around the skins and C pillar, it almost looks like the roof skin is clamped to the dip rail sections, just looking to see if anyone has removed one skin to another, and any tips, just checking first before I reinvent the wheel... Thanks for the replies BTW.

    XD Fairmont Ghia Rebuild

    Hi, I have an 82 XD Fairmont Ghia that I'm rebuilding. I also have an XF Donor vehicle for any panel parts I require. Ive done quite a few 4wd's over the years and a few cars, but not an XD Falcon. The turret has rust, but I can get whatever sections I need from the donor. My view is its easier to replace the skin and repair the structure at the same time. Who has dont this swap, and any pic would really appreciated. Im interested on how the turrets were installed and where to unpick the XF turret from. Again any help appreciated!
