    Ten years since the last one...
  2. The Bronze - 1974 Ford Falcon XB Sedan

    Grew some balls. Drove it up West Coast Road to home. Made it. Everything but a wof. Calling that a tick on the goals for the year.
  3. The Bronze - 1974 Ford Falcon XB Sedan

    Just drove 2.7 kms to the alignment shop. Furtherest its been in years. Some pain in the arse oil leak i cant quite track down. Back to the shed...

    Tank seems sealed. Replaced Tierods, inner and outer, but seems like the replacements I got were about 0.8 -1.2mm smaller and didn't fucking work, so wasted a day and all out of whack now from disassembly/reassembly and didn't get to the alignment place in time for the WOF before Xmas I had planned. Still, looks fucking dope. Any protips on getting it reasonably straight and driveable alignment wise I can do myself before getting it dialled in properly?

    205/70 or 205/75 tyres? It's slammed pretty low, so I'm thinking the extra 10mm of sidewall could help stay on the right of legal and bumps, but it could also guard rub. Send your answers on the back of an envelope to here:

    Joy, I have this on the shelf from head gasketing the EB. Win. I also have aviation sealant. I just want the c*&ting thing done.

    So, started draining the tank. And then I'm looking at it and thinking, and realising that the leak is odd, given i resealed the tank. And I ponder it a bit, and look at it some more once I get the tank drained a bit. And now you see what I see... So I tipped the now mostly empty tank on an angle and all the petrol is pushing on the sender seal... That's right, once again a Rarespares replacement part is a complete bag of fucking shit, and the new sender seal isn't actually sealing. Anyone got a recommendation on the right sealer to put on this to hold the fuel in, because i really don't want to be covered in petrol anymore. Thank you kindly.

    figured out why the brand new fuel sender wasn't working. helps to plug it in. figured out where all the gas keeps going. leaky tank. so many swear words. emptied, cleaned and PORed it a few months back. never leaked before suggestions on someone who can fix it in west/central auckland?

    please add scallops or a flaked roof in a cola colour like the interior. I'd appreciate that.

    If you're in AK at the moment and plan to be for a while, but if you could get the gear box up here sure a few of us could be rounded up to help get it in. Dunno if that hightop would get in my shed, but most of the tools are there and a hardstand. Happy to host. Then at least you're more mobile in the interim, right.
  15. 1963 Ford Galaxie Hardtop of Glory - The Bronze

    I'd say so. 65 is the 2dr Hardtop body style now that i think about it. Not sure about the 05. I know it was built in December. Somewhere I found some scraps under the seat from the OG build order. Could cross reference.
