Baldies XC Falcon


Recommended Posts

Went for quick drive up the road to turn it around, some more crud got in the fuel line and got some big leanpops during the 'u-turn'... fuel system is all getting redone so not too stressed. 3 year old fuel in a 43yr old tank was never going to run perfect.

But it fits.

Went through the boot today, found a few gaskets and other bits and pieces i had stashed over the years.

Removed the carpet and ran a screwstick around the seams before waving the vacuum around and looking for speedholes.

Worse than i thought but still not as bad as it could be. Yet.

Still need to remove lights and bumper to get a better idea.

Soaking all nuts and bolts with crc before i start that fight.

Bumper is off. So is the towbar which won't be going back on.

Rear corner chrome trim came off with minimal surprises, on one scaly section out of 8 screwholes so pretty happy with that.

Tail lights are giving me arseholes, nuts are siezed onto the nolongercaptive studs. And all my vicegrips are at work....

Some carefull grinding sliced the nuts nicely. Lights out and quick brush off revealed some nasty shit.

The scaly bit behind the chrome trim mentioned earlier. Barely a fleck in comparison.
