headlining as per AU style with added lights behind sunvisors, added footwell lights & rear console light. have fitted the alloy wheel i found on Fb. also fitted a territory snorkel bought some spare parts for the smartbar. rear seat drivers side was replaced with another & also has the factory centre armrest [now to find a AU fairmont rear seat..... :lol: ] with a better looking seatbelt. has had some cheap kmart seat covers fitted & will later fit some better ones. cargo area was returned back to original for rwc & a AU cargo blind was scourced & fitted before the rwc.

Image

soon i hope to have an almost complete BA/BF cargo blind fitted

Image

car has passed with only four small hiccups & is now waiting fore rego on monday :D :D :D

current look re rwc

Image


Image


Image


original look when bought - if you look closely at the passenger airbag & just above the centre air vents [left & right] you will see some 'marks' which were from the [i presume?] car yard clean it recieved [they stood out alot more in real life]. these marks can now no longer be seen [YAY!].

Image



one thing that wasn't noticed by anyone :shock: was i changed the original drivers side taillight with another undamaged unit i had. i didn't notice when i originally swapped it ... but when i changed the indicator globe i noticed a problem :cry: :x :? :| .... the taillight would NOT fit into it's two fixed mounting points [the metal locator on the bottom right & the plastic locator on mid left] which had me stumped :lol: .. original would fit with no problems & new would not. . _ turns out the car had been hit sometime in it's life & when who ever it was fixed it, the rear of the quarter finished approx 5mm further out :roll: . taillight has been heated & is currently being held down by two ocker straps [for a cupla days] to see if it will hold the 'new' shape :wink:

so over all .. all good :mrgreen:

this is the 'new' one waiting to be done.

Image

Hey Mad,no haven't done but you could make the recess with MDF and apoxy it in on the back-just won't be covered with vynal but switch should cover it nice anyway.

not trying ta pick on ya johhnyHCF ... BUT, don't need the mdf as there is a backing there [dash base]. the left switch currently covers the 'hole' that was cut into the dash. there is maybe 5mm vinyl overlap behind the switch, however i want it to look like the righthand switch. so NO MDF at ALL :!:

ok .... it is from an AU :oops: :oops:


fitted to a later BF with just two bolts holding it there

i can either use it or ..... sell it & wait for a BA SmartBar :roll:


to use i can either change frontend sheetmetal to AU [which i can do as i prefer the AU XR6/8 headlights] OR fit 'fillers' where needed around the bumper [such as between the bumper & lights/grille etc]


Thoughts anyone ?

so after driving for awhile & hooking up the car trailer to the wagooon ..... :roll:




currently thinking of changing rear springs due to spring sag & weight in back of wagooon plus weight of a car trailer..... have my eye on some secondhand FG one ton ute springs.

Image


pro's & cons??


currently the wagooon has the 'standard' 65 ltr usable doughnut lpg tank, how ever i want to upgrade to the larger lpg tanks used on the lpg only wagooons [as per FAWD]. which also means a custom petrol tank [again as per FAWD]. not sure if currently fitted reece towbar will fit with bigger lpg tank?. currenly have a BF lpg wagooon as a parts car :mrgreen:

yes i know the wagooon will have a 'stiffer' ride to to the springs.
