1. Dropping the XR6 wagons.



2. Not doing Tickford bodykits for the wagons.



3. Not making them in black.


Problem solved:

It's a $200 back yard closed door spray over, needs some more work, and the cars in desperate need of a clean, but she looks horny in black!

Next up I need to pull the Simmons apart and have the grey paint removed from the centers and then polished.

EDIT: put a smaller picture in for those dial up people.

Is it acrylic or 2 pack?

Looks acrylic due to lack of shine!

No front bar on it at the moment - hence the picture of the cars a**.

I put the car into a ditch up the coast a day after testing fitting the new bar.

It's not too bad though, I've actually rebuilt it (fair bit of time fibreglassing) and it hasn't come up bad at all. Still needs some sanding and then a paint, so will be a while till pictures of that appear. I'm also still mucking around with the intercooler, so that's stopped me from rushing to get it done.

Edited by Macca, bloody LG KU990 camera phones with 5mp cameras LOL.

File comment: Front wheels are hanging in this meter deep ditch, the front of the car was resting on the chassis rails with the rear wheels also in the air - luckily the front bar was the only thing damaged.

The nearest quarter is on the other side of the state (yes, not that far, but it seems to usually run on weekends when i'm working).
And I've had no reason to put the car on a dyno yet. Besides, it's all about how fun it is to drive it, not some number.

Nice!

Interesting rear bar.

Pity the XR6 badge is larger than the FALCON badge, if it were smaller it'd go so much better. Love the little badge beneath it too :P

Not bad for a $200 door shut jobbie! Just dodgy up the doorjams & engine bay & you're done :D
