OK today I have the center section of an EL exhaust for sale. Approx 9 months old done less then 5 thousand k's. Tail pipe was cut off but just need the remainder pulled out of the sleave on the back of the muffler. still has the engine pipe and cat attatched and will fit ef/el sedan or wagon.

$50 or best offer

EL GT customs side skirts. Now these are a bit different. The bulk of these skirts are original EL GT plastic but have been made 1 piece with the moulds for the flares removed. They have also been lengthed to approx 2200mm long and have a carbon fibre insert fitted. Definately 1 of a kind with no cracks.

they are 2200mm long. I don not listen to a word he says because 9 times out of ten it is has opinion and not fact. yes they were too short for my wagon but as XR fairmont said he as messured a fairlane to find its just of 2100mm. each and very car varys slightly. These skirts were on my old sedan and one side was almost an inch longer. All modifications done on there skirts have been done by people who currently work in or have previously worked in an industry where fibreglassing was one of there roles.

I will have to find a wagon or lane to put them againt. the 2200 is from memory and as I said yest they were too short for my wagon by 10 mm but have had them against another wagon and 2 lanes were they were long by between 5 and 20 mm. If people expect a custom fibre glass part to fit every car good bloody luck. my venom front bar made by the original designer of the kit has been fitted to 3 different el's for 3 different fits.

but I would have thought selling a custom part and informing potential buyers that its indeed custom would give them a clue that it will not nessaserily going to fit as per a farctory part.

I hope this wasn't aimed at me as I am new to e series fords as I have mainly worked on and modified x series falcons, at the end of the day e series are still very new to me that's why I asked a question and I expected not to be treated like a retard, if I don't know something I ask questions and do research *shock horror* lol

no man, it was not in any way directed to you. It is being delt with by a mod and my self. Once I return home I will get some extact messurement of the inside length of the skirts to try clear up the confussion.

Until then all I can say is they were 10 mm to short for my wagon but have been to long for another wagon and a fairlane
