Cars been running fine latly, no problems except the lifter noise, engine and box are nice and tight

Still wating on the rest of the bay to get painted

Had its service couple of weeks ago, so i will keep updated, next thing is a set of new rear tyres as mine are lil bit bald but still good enough on the road.

Then when tax money comes ill replace the lifters and then i will beable to finally get the car resprayed

Well Update Time

Me and my Mech went and picked up this xr6 yesterday

Its a series 1 au xr6, 98 september build,

Its a 5 spd manual and its a vct

Its been pranged in the side, payed 500 bucks for it

It has sat for 4 years , not even started once

Image

Image

Image

Image

This is the prang, unfortunatly it is terminal damage and cant be repaired
Image
So this gives me a change to get some stuff out of it for cheap

I have already put my name down for the xr front, lights and wiring loom etc, costing me 300 bucks and i will get the bar repaired, just a slight crack

And i will get a few more things as well, wateva else i dont grab will be up for sale, which a thread in the for sale section will be started soon

Theyll only have a build plate if they have genuine Tickford options, though with that said, my XR had options and Tickford badges and had no build plate either

any Extra tickford options got a build plate, XR8's, XR6's, and some Ghias got them, if they have no extras= no plate.

The TE/TS's all got engine plates with the name of the Engine builder on them.
