My wagon is going into the shop tomorrow for a freshen up, removing the rust and painting the whole front and front and rear bumpers.
Should be finished in about a month.
I'm trying to find some new parts like NOS rear bumper and body moulds anyone have any ideas or tips on where i might find some.

You should look for an EF/EL wagon rear bumper if you havnt already got one.
Also tell the wife its cheaper to buy second hand rims with good tyres than it is to buy 4 brand new tyres worked for me.

Yer i know there not the same and i actually do like the ea-ed rear better as i think its alot cleaner.
Are you going to get the grey sprayed body colour if so i sugest that you change the molds to chrome looks very up market me thinks.
Also im upgrading my EF fairmont wagon to EL ghia with XR motor as i have alot of the parts already except for seats and door trims so when i get those ill give you a yell and see if you want my EF fairmont stuff if your interested.

Just an update, found a new rear bumper and the wagon is getting painted on both sides tailgate and the whole front.
I have all new badges to go on it so it should look pretty good when its finished.Oh and also i put a bulge on my bonnet so thats being painted to.
