Sooo good that this is starting.

12 slots and eagers first up please.

Also, I’m off to visit dad soon so I’ll see what Cleveland buts I can pilfer.

Cheers boss!!!!!! I want to start piecing together a nice 351C soon

I just bought some chrome 'skull caps" for the 12 slots and I actually can't wait to slam it.....when I get some space at home to actually have the car in the same city haha.

 

It's currently in Hamilton tucked away

This is the look/stance I'm looking to achieve. The side mouldings, louvres and S Pac lower lip really make them look killer IMHO.

I'm super lucky to have sourced a XE Ghia Fairmont bonnet and headlights too - you can see in the attached pics the headlight width.

Ahhhh the memories.. I did a XD that looked just like this on 12 slots way back when you needed to take your camera roll in to be processed.. mid 90's I think..  it was painted primer orange & had XF Fairmont doors so I could have central locking & electric window & mirrors.. lowered front springs, reset leafs by Archers who are still around today.. if I find a pic I'll scan & upload it.

Great direction you're heading with this

Cheers pal - keen to see pics of your old sled. I want to do an honest resto that is in keeping with the 80s. Wont be over the top but should be cool hopefully. Well, at least I will think it’s cool haha.

Has anyone had experience with using T5 box on a 351C? Will it handle the jandal?

Tremec is another option however the cost is substantial.....but they are rad.

 

Or I go C4 and cruise

Dunno if it's any help or if they are the same or not but I was at zebra in manukau on sunday, there was a XG? falcon ute with a disc rear end that still had the calipers and cables on it
