The wheels are too big, I reckon.
I would try 13's with body colour, or antique white, along with the small dog dish hub caps.

13s don't go over later discs (on the front of this)
i saw an XM a couple of weeks back with XA drums on front and probably centura diff with 13" ute (5 stud) wheels and the XP style caps.. 

customline hubcaps.. (from an XM wagon thread i follow on AFF, has a lexus engine and project binky style mods everywhere) https://fordforums.com.au/showthread.php?t=11344115&page=16

NYE, must've been the day for e-series V8 wagons... I was working on mine too!
Doing some cooling system maintenance.

Speaking of which - I see you have the spring tension type clamps, on the upper radiator hose.
Did you fit them, or were they always there?

I know EA-ED and early XG's had those spring clamps factory fitted on the upper hose, but not the lower hose.

And all e-series had the spring tension clamps on the header tank hoses,
along with SOME of the heater hose connections (heater tap, and firewall connections).

What about the lower hose, and that in-between stainless steel pipe section?
Do you have a pic of that setup?

My wagon is a late 97 build.
What's your one?

Spent to day playing with a mustang, it's a 2011 5.0 gt convertible, it was written off in the US when it stopped quicker than the escalade that was behind it, so it was stripped of the panels and interior that wasn't needed and that stuff was sold off. Then it got cut in half and thrown into a container it arrived at the start if this week and we set both halves up so that I could go though the wiring and make it run before we tear it apart to put the running gear in mum's cuzzo wagon

And here's a little video
