    JUST drove home this eb ,still cant work out if its a eb 1 or series 2 ,also is it a ghia or just a fairmont ? anyway lets start to dig ,plate says 9/91 so thats borderline i think with series 2 maybe,im gunna stick my head under the diff soon and see if it has the flat flange,seats seem to be in vgc just need a clean,door trims too,p/s is leaking,brakes are fkd pedal gos to the floor unless pumped,a/c dont work,radiator overflow bottle is leaking but has a wicked set of extractors on it and 2/12 inch system,factory mags are gone,not sure at this stage what to do with it,i got it very cheap,been on the guys nerve for months and finaly he tapped out.

    hey how do you put the clip on those mungrel xf/ea bumpers ? do you put the black clip on the bumper bracket then push in and turn or what ? i think this clip has had its day its very wide and wont hold the bar on.

    i tried to gernie off the black from the plastic cowl,but still some refuses to budge,if i can find a eb around here thats wrecking i might just grab the cowl off another car,or fully sand this one back and hit it with the black bumper spray.

    yup i offerd her five hundred for it,400 more than its worth,but she felt more secure with the car just sitting there,it dont bother me cause i got the eb from the next street,but she will tap out soon enough.

    i run a quickfool 450 d/p on my crossy,they are not advertised latley on websites for some reason,maybe because holley bought em out they want to sell 390's instead ? but the 450 is awsome.

    this is my first e series ford,and to be honest i dont no why i didnt really like them b4,as now finding a xb fairmont with a 302 t bar in gc for $2000 is imposible,but now a good e series or later is cheap and plentiful atm,but you watch all these will disapeer soon .

    ok the basic bogging and bodywork is done,primed and i will give a first rubdown this afo,also need a passenger side wind protector,also the door handles need cleaning the black paint off them with the gernie,someone in its life had painted the cowl and door handles with some sort of paint .
