yeah.. put it this way.. I never got under the car. but it was more stable than it looked in the photo.

yes, they've been trying to make them illegal over here for ages but thus far it hasn't been successful.



coulda fooled me with the 'stable' part lol :shock: :shock:


Seriously.. the ramps are way wider than they look in the photo. they are normal ramps that I bought some trailer loader ramps, and welded them on so the ramp is shallow enough that I can drive up onto them front and back without wiping out front or rear bar. work great but as an added bonus they are huge and very heavy..

maybe :lol: but thats how it comes across in pic .... i didn't notice [to be honest] that they were made from two pieces .. yeah have thought of making up some ramps so hers can drive up some without as you said - wiping out front/rear bar :shock: .... like my car/s . . . one day :roll:

Thought I'd do a bit of an update as it's been a while. (for ages I wasn't able to access fordmods so I thought it had disappeared)

Car is now a 6 spd manual. I've bought a Haltech plug and play Elite PCM.. Basically you unplug the factory PCM and plug this one in it's place and off you go. The PCM can be any of BA/BF/FG and if I add the ZF loom I could conceivably swap to an auto relatively easily. (not likely but it's good to have options.)
Image

The car is Liquid Gas Injected so having an aftermarket computer running things is par for the course.. this will let me connect via USB to the PCM and fine tine everything. It also has an inbuilt wideband controller so I've got that too. The 1400kg clamp force Xtreme clutch and light chromemoly flywheel isn't cutting it.. when the car comes on hard boost the clutch smokes up so that has to go. Looking for a mantic 9000 2 plate now.

Old radiator didn't cut it so this arrived today.
Image

The T now has an underdrive pulley too.
Image

About a year and a half ago I bought a joying 9 inch 4GB ram remote screen android car pc.. I got root on it and fiddled to get it to do all that I wanted to do... then I hacked up a spare ICC and made it fit. (I wanted to keep the stacker and heater physical controls too) made a sunvisor around it too as glare was a problem. came out pretty good if I do say so.
Image


Also got an Optima in readyness for the stereo.. and a 10 alphine roof screen for 50 bucks that wasn't working but is now. Also I've run zero guage cable from the boot to the front in prep for remote battery.
Image

Put some genuine EL XR6 bonnet flutes on and made them work as the water to air intercooler I'm fitting gets hot that close to the turbo so now the hot air gets drawn out. Girls looking pretty good.
Image This thing has everything you can think of.. even tyre pressure onscreen. Rather than use a separate data link it connects to my phone via bluetooth and uses that for internet access. (spottify/netflix etc)

Tons of other stuff but I got divorced and had to sort that out which is why I've not been around much. (sorry if you are one of the people who messaged me.)

Yay... just got the Mantic 9000 clutch.. lowest price I could find locally was 2100 bucks.. got it online for 1944 and then EBAY offered me a 10 percent discount which I took.. so got it for 1750 shipped to my door.
