Just curious to see if anyone has actually ever successfully created a 2 door EF-EF Falcon......Like the Scorcher EA Falcon Coupe, But alot better?
I reckon it would look awesome and be one hell of a cool project although extremely expensive and time consuming.

I have seen an EF or EL wagon that has been converted into a 2dr and looked like the side rear windows were welded up like a panel van. That was @ the pickles auctions ( tullamarine ) in the buyers car park on the 12th of dec this year iirc. ( i was there buying a tx5 hatch for a parts car :D )

Man it looked hot, but i didn't have time to take a pic. It was white, and o so sexy! I reckon a sedan would also look hot modified as a 2dr if done right.


Cheers

Yeah um no,

They move the b-pillar back 110mm from memory. They used the skin from the rear section for where it joined to the 1/4 panel to the b-pillar. And made a whole new one piece front door skin as well. They used two front doors for each side for the lengthening of the rest of the door.

I still got the mags here some where.... Christ knows where though.

And i agree with Frank, it really needed a dropping. A roof chop wouldn't have gone astray either.

whenever i hear about sedan deliveries i think about adam lebrese's EH holden. damn that thing was nice! actually saw it driving around on the gold coast when i was down that way for a few weeks last year.


Fabz: i did a couple of chops of my car as a coupe, one with roof chop and one without.

Without Roof Chop:

With Roof Chop:

I personally reckon the FG looks better as a coupe (plug my own photochops here :lol: )
