Mate turboblades are F'in nice wheels aren't they..I had an EB2 Fairmont up until 2-3 years ago and no aftermarket rim would surpass the looks of these....suffice it to say I left the standard turboblades on the EB. Probably the best looking standard rim Ford have ever produced I reckon.

i completely agree!!!! and a little bonus is that it makes it more of a sleeper, not many people do up cars and leave standard rims so yeah i think the turbo blades r great heres my old EB1 Fairmont looked great i rekon

Mate I had an Everglade EBII Fairmont which was 18 months old when I bought it in 1995 having done 32,000kms...Traded it for my new BA in 2004 and after 9 years ownwerhip (the longest i ever owned a car) that car was the most reliable car I've owned...Apart from reg servicing and tyres only replaced master cylinder, shocks , exhaust, alternator and radiator before selling it at 200,000km...Still had a superb engine at that mileage. A great car and sorry to see it go.

Nice, why didnt u sell it to me haha jks....
yeah they r a good car, strong motors as always the ford 6 is great, a month after my blue beast got smashed, i bought my Brown ED Fairmont for $600 it had a blown head gasket and a mildy dented body, i put and AU motor in it and did some other mods but cost my 2000 including everything to put it on the road, great value! ive spent some money since, with the exhaust etc, but i was able to drive the ED home with a badly blown gasket , still drove on the highway fine hehe

this is the bluey after i got hit.... what a waste

yeah,start sanding with 600,the mags are dirty and the clear is peeling,if to hard,start wth 400,then 600 and then 1ooo it will be so smooth it will shine real quick,with tripoli it needs heat,but keep moving around or you will groove ,change direction,/,\,=,! the ore you cross the finer the finsh,the glossier it gets.chrome is polished in 3 stages to get the shine,use a polyurethane clear when finished.
