Well first up hello to all, thought i would finally post on here to share my project and where im at.

All feedback is welcome, but, if you have nothing nice to say, please keep it to yourself.

My car is an EF Falcon, white and bog stock....was.
To explain the build and how i got here ia a tale so enjoy the read.

I purchased the car as a run around, stock except for the 17" ROH rims and chopped springs "bogan much" it served me well for.months i had a small mishap, car+curb at 40km side.on = whats linkage smashed out the diff and one undrivable car.

So i had a.dead car and a need to fix it..... the makings of a project.
Recently born son, so had to have a car, my mun also recentky.passed and i needed to be constructive with my time, yhe bottle i crawled into for a month wasnt doing me any favours.

So it began

Same time a mate dropped a 2JZ GTE Twin turbo into his Supra, cost him 7k just for engine and professsional install. " i vet you couks do a whole car for that or less" was my words.....

So a $$ limit has been set, 5-7k including the purchase price of thw car. A big ask.......

I purchased a EL Fairmobt for parts, and got lucky, so here is the lisr ao far, ill add pictures when i work out how.

Rebuilt rear brakes - strippes as diff, ford blue in 1000' enamel

Scuff boards black, 5 layers + 5 layers of clearcoat
Heaps more interior panels black, door rubbers white
