Good news, the alternator is fine... 14 volts across the terminals when the engine is running, looks like its just that the battery needs a good charge.

Picked up a spare rim today, took the back wheels off and got two new bridgestone re92's fitted to my steelies because the tyres on them were pretty ordinary and wouldn't pass roadworthy. The best one of the two old tyres was also fitted to the rim I got from the wreckers as a spare. Fitted the two newies to the front, rotated the old front wheels to the back and put the newly crowned spare in the boot.

Once I've finished d**k around with the interior tomorrow I'll give the car a clean and take some pics.

All that I need to do then is change the brake pads next weekend, and it will finally be roadworthy :)

Done the weekend of 17/18 May:
Saturday, 8am start:
Picked up a spare steelie rim
Took off back wheels, got the two tyres replaced with some newuns
Rotated the two newly tyred wheels to the front, then the two old fronts to the rear
Removed the seats (finally, after one bolt was in extremely tightly)
Removed the centre console
Removed the carpet
Started the BBM switch and knock sensor loom
Then a storm came over at 4pm

Sunday, 11am start:
Put the car up on blocks again as high as I could get it to get access to the knock sensor.
Finished off the bbm switch/knock sensor loom.
Threaded the loom into the cabin and soldered it up.
Vacuumed the crap that used to be under the old carpet off of the floor.
Installed new carpet
Installed EF B pillar trims,
Ran out of light at 5pm

Need to do this weekend 24/25th May:
Chase a bug in the headlights by replacing the headlight switch and indicator stalk assembly to eliminate them.
Change the front brake pads.
Finish fitting the bits of the EF interior I want to put in, including scuff plates, rear seat and kick panels.
Fit the crappy looking cheap seat covers to the original slightly worn EB seats until I can arrange for the EB legs to be attached to the EF seats[/u]

Okay okay!
I have some pics, they're not the best

Last weekend working on the knock sensor and bbm switch, cars very dirty.

Image

Taken yesterday afternoon with fading light, so they're a little rushed. Also I'd just given it a light chamois.

Image

Image

I don't really have any pics that show how good the interior REALLY looks.
This is the EF GLi rear seat, has a few light stains but they're going to get cleaned out soon.

Image

EF Kick panels, can't notice the gap unless you're down low

Image

Engine bay, waiting for my XR6T snorkel... taken with the engine running, not that it shows up on camera -_-

Image

Anywho, got to still change the oil and brakes today.
The headlights still require attention.
And me and my brother have figured out a way to mount the EF seats without much modification.

And it still needs a proper clean inside and out.

Went to Park Ridge wreckers just before and got some goodies :D

From an AU a brand new dome light cover.
Just sitting inside an EF was a steering wheel column cover, obviously someone had taken it off to get at another part.
Inside an EL was a centre console lid, again the work was done for me :D
Took off some seat adjuster handles from an EF as my EB's EF seats are missing a couple.
And I also got a whole handful of relays from various eb's/ed's.

If the centre console lid fits I'll consider fitting an EF/EL gearknob too :P

Good work, and thanks for the pics. The car looks nice and tidy. You should be pleased of how far you have come with it.

to mount the seats in easily just use the EB seat rails and bolt them to the EF seats..

Hey all, I've compiled all my stuff into a garage thread as I think thats about it as far as questions go... from here it'll basically just be progress on the car.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions and input.

Special thanks go to BenJ, TROYMAN, Paulmac and Snap0964 for being fountains of knowledge for all things Fordmelding.
