I'll be joining the X series thread soon (officially), getting an XE Fairmont for 100 bucks. Orange, Cloth trim, sports dash, little rust and needs a new power steering pump. A good fixer upper project. So soon I'll be asking for X series mods :lol:

what are the base of the C-pillar on both sides like, and what about above the rear window? also, check the seam that runs along the width of the firewall

least the rust is pretty minor so far

for the money it's pretty good, but if the rust is in the roof or firewall, IMO it's not worth it, even the base of the C-pillars pushes the viability of a XD-XF

i'm not denying that, just saying that after a certain point, a car becomes beyond economical repair, and is only really any good for parts

1: wtf does that have to do with anything in this thread?
2: be careful of dealing with burnin customs cos they and thier customers have had a lot of grief from qld transport, as well as there's a lot of rumours going around that thier work is extremely dodgy
