Hi Brownman, it's shaping up excellent. I have an XK that I am going to do the same to. Here's mine, I'll PM you.
Cheers!

Top Job - looking good

L300 is a mitsibishi Van .
Hot rodders use L300 front xmembers and HR front ends
on ther projects , best thing with a L300 front end is the endless amount of parts for them

Was aware of the L300 vans, just not that that's what was being talked about here, or how they fitted in. Cheers.

Yeh, from what I gather, the L300 front end doesn't just bolt in but it isn't too hard for a reasonably talented fabricator to fit. Very similar in fitting a mustang 2 setup like they do in the states. I'm just curious about the track width etc. If you Google "Mustang IFS" you'll find some great stuff. It's amazing how big a falcon engine bay gets without spring towers or steering arms in the way and when you figure that a whole van is worth around $400 to $1000 second hand.......

No real major problems,spoke to engineer at length,short of it is as long as it is as strong or stronger than standard is ok ,there will be a few things to redo no doubt.

For those readers in Perth, I spent a long time talking to a guy that signs mods off when done. He reckons that it is better to be slightly more vague with your initial application to the DPI, it just gives him a bit more room to justify smaller (necessary) mods after the work is done. If you are too specific initially, you can paint yourself into a corner. By the way, I just looked up the specs on wheel track for the latest L300, it is 48mm wider than an XK. Can anyone think of a similar front end that runs 15 inch rims from the factory? They like you to use the same diameter and dish, there are variations though. Subframe connectors are OK too.

Hey there Brownman, any more info on the old falkie? I'm still accumulating bits for mine. Just ordered a McDonald brothers triangulated four bar for the rear end. I noticed that you notched out the bottom of the rails a bit to fit the frontend up, do you think I will have problems in that area if I narrow the whole front end assembly by 48mm?
