Damn son!

So good! Agree with the million dollar tridents these days. Pay the boss to be the boss though eh.

Tidy 12 slots with new eagers look great though!

The body being in such a good condition was defo one of the reasons i snapped it up so quickly, so many these days are just neglected and rusty as shit, or end up like the below...........

You should buy the second pair of headlight protectors.

If anything ever happens to yours, you'll have spares. And if you sell the car before you use the second set, there will be others out there who will buy them off you.

Oh this is fantastic!!!

 

How much travel do you have in the rear before bump stop? There is an easy fix with modifying the top of the strut tower. Did it on my XE and made the thing alot nicer to drive.

If you find any louvers let me know, been after a good one for a while.

 

Ive got an XF parts ute if you need any little parts. I pretty much cant use and body panels or interior on the XE.

I had a molded carpet cover for the dash in my XF, I got it from the wherehouse, I really liked it, it was like riding in a taxi.

No problem. The parts i have are the tan interior im pretty sure.

 

"Megatowers"

 

I used a bit of 75mm long 100x4mm tube, took about an hour to weld, clean up and paint. Doing this also means i can achieve a shit load more slam if need be.

I recon 50mm long would be more than enough even. If the car is FULL of people and stuff it actually gets so low after bumps that those tiedown loops next to the lower rear arm location point hit the ground. Bits of road and sparks flying. Pretty LOL but probably not the best thing. Thats why i think 50mm would be better.
