Well last night my dad rang me up and said that he traded in a Fairmont with GT mags on it and i was quick to ask if i could swap them so after a morning of work this is the final product. Recently i also got my cat replaced with a magnaflow high flow job makes my car really loud and i love it

I think it looks very good. But as you can see that last pic of the rim is quite damaged and i was thinking are you able to get them fixed up at all?

to come in the new future is to paint my red stripe white, clear tail lights, clear side indicators if i could get some and maybe a cam job.

i also ordered some genuine EL GT centre caps but im not sure if they will fit mine which i think are copies as they are only 8 inches. Does anyone know for sure that they will fit? and what colour are genuine GT centre caps

Does anyone know if a will a AU steering wheel fit my EL cause i wanted to get the momo EL XR one but it is around 500 bucks from ford and a EL GT wheel was over 1000.

And last of all does anyone make or have a Tickford spoiler. I DONT WANT FIBREGLASS

Cheers Fellas

hey mate, lookin good there, yes u can get rims repaired, au steering wheel should fit, dont get clear tail lights ;) and why would u want a rubber spoiler, imo the fiberglass ones are better because they cant bend and crack the paint job, how ever it looks nice and you have done well!

- yes an au wheel will fit no worries, no need to change anything
- yes you can get rims repiared but they're expensive
- genuine GT caps are champagne, copies are silver - i think the genuine ones will fit
- no one makes plastic tickford spolier copies, either go to CCS for a fibreglass copy, or chase wreckers for a genuine one

Yeah well im hoping the centre caps will fit. They cost me over $60 which isnt to bad.
So you think i should go a fibreglass spoiler?
I had alot of trouble with my fibre glass body kit though

CCS do very good fitting kits. If you get a spoiler from bob (make sure you tell him you're from fordmods)and get it professionally fitted and painted you'll be fine, fibreglass won't crack easily once it's got a few coats of paint and clear on it.

Well it will probably be fitted by me and my brother as he is a painter and works in a crash shop. Do the tickford spoilers fit in the same holes as the smaller version
