Sleeping with the fish's, barra turbo xe ute sleeper.

242 posts in this topic

Saw the pics on facebook, took me a minute to realize what it was, defiantly a sleeper,

looks like 60% of XD XE XF falcon utes I saw around K Flat/Bendigo when I was a kid. Looking good.

That is truly awesome mate! Love it.

 

You'd never guess the potential seeing that on the road. Most people wouldn't even look at it, unless they're x series tragics like us lot.

Just seen this on Facebook

Thought to myself, shit I'll laugh if this is the one with a barra in it......... scrolled down and sure enough there it was.

Will catch a few people by surprise for sure

I haven't forgot about y'all, but the I'm away and I want the next proper update to be the final reveal if you will.
Suffice to say it now runs (quite well I might add) there are only minor mechanical and cosmetic jobs left. Then off for a tune and engineers report.

Backing plates got a tidy up and the new brakes fitted.

Made a little bracket and hid a washer bottle under the front.

Need to get some Aerospace 303 into that rubber floor mat, and the steering wheel center pad.
They're looking a little dry, compared with the new seat trim. :P

Also, the old DX3 trick, should bring up those interior pull handles too. :)
