under construction is my xg xr6 ute though i would start a tread as i will be building this ute up as been wanting to do a genuine xr ute with the round headlights and front bar blinkers

looking at throwing in an el xr6 tickford light worked motor with t5speed box pedal conversion wiring etc should be fun

recondition diff as lsd maybe reshim depending on cost but motor and paint will be first

throwing on a ba xr8 ute rear tub side skirts rearbar customised to fit with towbar(looks like ill be fibreglassing for days on this one)

either hard top lid with gt wing or maybe canopy still to source these parts again cost wi$$$e will determine the finish product

paint will either be candy green with light lower airbrush flames (got a mate who will be doing me a favour should be intersting once i finish the body work)

interior either re-trim the xr seats or replace with fairmont ghia bucket seats and door trims,might look at changing dash to dl ltd dash or re-trim with fake leather(pleather its called not cowhide)



more..................to come will take a while to do pics and post over a period of time ,luck me though i have eb ed el ef au ba ford modelss spare parts cars make my project happen looking at spending $6000 all up paint,body engine work will take most of it time is the factor though




here is some rough pics

finished off the door runners had to stay original for now to fit the ba door rubber fits good just needs a bit of glue on the corners to stay perfect,cut a peice of the old door rubber to fit on lower door sill section will redo the whole thing a final finsh after dash is removed


Image
Image
Image
Image

replaced broken window used extra glue around outer edges to stop any rain
Image


next will do some thing about those ugly door trims might chop the door a bit to fit xr or ghia door trims also fitting power windows central locking wiring loom door speakers need to make some brakets and drill holes tedious job maybe next weekend might change door handles to el ef

stripped down front end to inspect light damage need a front bar, rh bar braket also hard to find bumper bar light ,headlight needs some reasembly i have a few left overs from broken one to make good headlight then fibreglass the surrounds rubb back for paint
