Well a little history to get started.

I got a EF GLi with ABS about 2 years ago now. It was my first car.
I got a trip computer and tried installing it but needed help and found fordmods. Ever since i have been addicted to modding the car.

Christmas last year i had an accident which left me with a 1g insurance bill along with repairing my car. I got a complete EL front end off Private9 our local victorian car wrecker.

Recently i had been too lasy to paint the front end. So i picked up a Fairlane front end real cheap from a mate that was wrecking one.
I lowered it on King Ultras and put a set of AJR signature rims on it.
As for sound i put a kenwood MP3 deck in with a LCD, 3 way kennys in the front, 2 way pioneers in the rear, a boss 4 channel for them and a rampage 2 channel to sound my 12 inch pioneer sub.
For a bit of performance i threw in a set of lukey extractors and 2.5 inch cat back hero with only 1 muffler.

As for the interior i put some cappa EL fairmant Ghia seats in....thats right leather.

Now for the fun bit.

I wanted climate control. I always have and always will. So i did. Started tonight by ripping out the interior. Pulled almost everything out. Got the dash out and the heater box. I have a new dash, dash loom, and bosy loom to go in. While thats sitting on my floor waiting i am adding extra wires to it for the fairlane door sensors to go with the fairlane cluster i have in at the moment.

Now as of tomorrow i have to pull out the old bosy loom, add and tape the wires for the sensors. Then put EVERYTHING back in.

The only thing that will be original in my car will be the diff, trans, boot lid, tail lights, and rear bar. But that will change when i put the manual in, get my LSD, fix my rear bar and i have already tinted my tail lights.

Try and get some pics up tomorrow for ya.....But all i can say is damn, its alot of work and falcons are big when there is nothing in them.
