Hello Again All

This is another interior mod I have done.

Given the age of the vehicle and high mileage, I thought it would be a good idea to carry around some tools and a couple of spare parts.

So I bolted in a toolbox, as I didn't want anything rolling around while exploring the limits of adhesion out on a cruise. :D

From the boot.

From the back seat.
Image

I set it up so that the toolbox can be opened from the back seat once the seat back is folded down. We have been doing a few trips, and who wants to pull everything out of the boot, just to get a screwdriver etc.

Oh and in the top photo, on the right you can see where I mounted a fire extinguisher. You just never know when you might need one.

Regards
BenJ

Do EF/EL Door cards fit straight up or is there mods needed?

Nice work dude, especially with the steering wheel. It would be great to have an after market wheel to steer with & still have my cruise. But i've got a different idea about the cruise buttons.....

I can just see it, i will be spending way too much on my ford & will take way too long to get my Panel Van & Torana projects finished!

Cheers

It will be interesting to see how you mod your Cruise Buttons.

I have been playing around with the steering wheel horn badge. I removed the Autotechnic sticker and tried to find something Ford oriented.

I first tried a small Ghia Emblem

Image

I drove around with this for a couple of weeks, but in the end decided it stood out too much.

So I now have this EL Fairmont Badge.

Image

I like this more, as it is more subtle and the colours blend in well.

Cheers to all

BenJ

find a huge mofo redback spider, enclose it in resin and afix it to the steering wheel, similar to the classic redback gearknobs? :)

My teenage daughter suggested a Transformers badge.

I quite like the idea and will see what I can find.
