Well after stuffing up the whole ef gli front end i have sourced a el gli one.

I plan on putting wank mesh in the grille and lower are intake.

Have XR bonnet vents.

Get a tickford lip for the whole car.

Im lowering it on Superlows

Tring to get some cash to get some 17" AMG Quakes.

I am thinking of removing the door strips or putting fairmont ones on.

I want to remove the GLi badging from the rear and just leave FALCON.

I got rid of the flaps...i mean mud flaps.

And lastly i want to get rid of the stupid antenna. What could i do for an alternate antenna?

Whats everyone think?

MORE UPDATED.

The windshield 1's are good for FM but not for AM so I have read.

Sounds like about 50 other falcons on here... ;-)

Alternative antenna, mount on inside the car (dunno what reception would be like) or off the boot? Or find out how the BA window ones work and see if you can do a similar thing.

Sounds good will give the car a much more cleaner look.

With the antenna if you remove you will still be left with a hole unless you plan on bogging it up and respraying the whole 1/4 panel.

The windscreen antenna would be expensive and i dont think would be an aftermarket option?

I have heard of some people putting antenna behind te roof lining so its hidden and apparently works fine, or alternatively get an electric antenna from a wrecker so its only up when your actually listening to the radio.

The electric ones go pretty cheap too, supercheap stock ones that will fit your car, It would be easier doing this, don't have to fill a hole.

Yeah thought of an electric one but then id just rather have nothing there. IMO the black makes a white car look dirty.

Well got home from Private9's (justin) house last night.

I got all the part i need to fix the front end. The fender has a few dents in it and i think i can fix most of them but there is a crease in one part that is very bad. I also need a power steering pully.

I also recieved my cam in the post....Low and behold no shims :(

Now its time to go to the car and start getting it ready for Viktor to weld the radiator support on then everything can go on.

I hope to have it fully painted my 3rd of feb that way the car looks good for the cruise.
