so any more NA-NCs on hear... really starting to like the look of these... although im all for the standard grill over the AU1Forte (LTD) grill... and no deal on the chrome wheels... although i think the white ones look great...
:? :? :? I'm glad you like the look of the NA-NC's, but you're a bit off the mark with the AU1 grill comment. The LTD bonnet and grill are off the DC LTD (both box car series, i.e. EA-ED) and as far as the wheels go... each to their own :wink: I prefer the chrome as it sits well with the LTD grill and chrome moulds.

have a look on ebay if you're keen to pick one up. There are usually quite a few there for sale in varying condition. Prices range anywhere from $500 to $8,000.

also whats the go with the side pin striping.. white cars never had them, my green one does, daves cardinal red one does, but others dont. was it an option? or for series 2 maybe? did series 3 change in any way apart from colour coding?

What brand SL's did you put in? Mine are Kings SL's all round and the front Guard sit's pretty much level with the top of the tyre.

also king spring superlows... i have the codes floating around here somewhere... i had to ring king springs to get the codes as no where listed them. and falcon superlows make fairlanes go to ultralow heights. im thinking of cutting 1/2 to 1 coil off the front to even it out

Here is the kings' catalogue
http://www.kingsprings.com.au/kings_mas ... alogue.pdf
I just rechecked my own springs and it turns out that I have Fairlane lows fitted to the rear (Part No. KFRL-18) and Falcon SL's in the front (Part No. KFFL-52SL). So if what you're saying is true, then I actually have the equivalent of Kings' Lows in rear and Ultra Low's in the Front. That being said I am still pretty happy with the overall ride height. The car looks pretty even except for the slightly larger gap between the wheel and guard in the rear. But that is how I like it :D
