  1. Be about 11ty times easier to work on now. How does it rate power wise against a turbo z?
  2. I thought the head gasket issues were only in the focuseseses with the ecoboost? And ironically because they were fitted with the mustang head gasket. Given the amount of mustangs sold I think the actual percentage of issues is actually very low, but in this age of instant information it makes it appear 10x worse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah my reco manual one isn’t the tightest box in the world either haha. (Now there’s a double entendre for ya) I think a reco one is $300 changeover so it’s gonna cost me $500 if the $170 one is shot. There’s another guy a bit further away wrecking xf’s, I might email him and see what he charges. Wanna get it swapped over before the motor goes in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. So I've been chasing a power steer box for the pano. One guy local to me quoted me $170 and I had to remove it from the car. Is that what these are worth days? Seems a bit of a rip to me. Got the xh bar and diff last week, they're still chilling in my trailer haha. Never heard back from the dude with the Windsor. Have found a stock 302c out of a zj (I think) complete good runner for $1000. That seems reasonable to me. Maybe the ghia might have to donate it's driveline. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Yep, I like the e series wagons, especially the Fairmont ef/el. I really liked that one we were all talking about on Facebook, pity it was a bucket. Have to admit, a Ve ss wagon would do me quite nicely. Also,checked out a bmw 320i touring the other day too. Be a nice daily.
  6. I’m not gonna buy them, well I doubt I will lol. If the au ends up being parted (which I doubt) is probably buy another au so I can salvage as many parts as possible. I’ll see if I can find the links Haven’t physically looked at them so no idea what they’re really like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. On the pano front, going out to pick up a xh rear bumper and diff for it on Thursday night. Waiitng to hear back from a dude who has a 302 Windsor and c4 for sale for $1500. Not the clevo I wanted but they're getting pretty thin on the ground around here for reasonable prices.
  8. So the dude paid up, after I went and gave him a house visit and had to shame him in front of his family. I hate doing that shit. Got a ruptured disc in my back which is stopping me getting started on the repairs. I’ve got a new rad and bumper support here already, just waiting on aircon condenser. Plan is to put the radiator in, bolt the bumper support on temporarily and take it for a drive to see if it still drives straight. Drivers side chassis rail is pulled over 20mm but it appears the bend is forward of any suspension mounts so I’m thinking it may get left where it is. Pulling the rail straight is not a financially viable option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They showed some footage on street machines YouTube channel of them using the spot welder/dent puller thingy whatsit the other day, amazing machine when you see a pro using it, so much faster than I ever imagined them being.

  11. Yeah it was a low speed accident. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Haha nah, this one wasn’t my doing. Numbnuts in the Colorado thought he saw a snake and tried running it over, he missed so he chucked it in reverse to have another go. Worst one is he has no insurance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Not the update I was expecting... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I didn’t think he would let this one go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. They are great cars, well any Lwb luxobarge is cool in my eyes.
