firstly the ed

more of the dual battery wiring has been getting done and i have decided to use a stinger 80 amp relay to isolate my rear battery.

Attachment:

2 12v accesort sockets have been installed in the back both flush mounted one is a normal type and the other is a hella type.

the battery box i will be running is a calibre brand (supercheap brand) and it has external terminals and built in battery gauge 12v socket with circuit breaker, all good all round battery box.

i am still yet to work out what battery i will be running in the rear cargo area but it will be around a 100 amp/hour sla deep cycle at the minimum

i am putting in lighting in the cargo area the same as what benj has done, but mine will be switched and will be running of the rear battery

also i have run a 4g cable from the battery to a 4g to 4 8g splitter that is mounted on the radiator support panel underneath the headlight and connected all the power accesories of that so there is not a whole heap of wiring mess near the battery
i will put up photos soon

mechanical wise the ed recieved a pair a ferodo zero brake pads on the front end

cheers, bear

gearbox lost all gears and rego is due soon, so a suitable replacement will hopefully be founf soon enough.

still gotta work out what the replacement will be yet, all i know is that it will be an auto and most likely a wagon

the mont could also be getting sold also, just dont know as of yet

cheers, bear

big update the wagon may be getting a manual.

in the next few days i will be picking up a ed manual sedan on gas and i am toying with the idea off putting the manual into the wagon, if not i may register the sedan and drive it around as it is on gas and looks nice and neat.

no pics yet, will put up some when i get the sedan

cheers, bear

yeah i know i know LOL but this ed sedan is mint except for 2 tiny (smaller then a 5 cent coin)rust holes in the inner sills.

but i did pay a deposit on a wagon tonight with end of june rego, look out for a new build thread, only thing is it's not a ford :shock: and its NOT a holden :mrgreen: LOL

so wagon could end up being fixed up properly with a manual gearbox or i may search for a better example of a e series ford wagon and manual that hehe

hey guys and gals

haven't been around much of late been extremely busy.

my old wagon i sold to my friend is about to be blueslipped and put back out on the road again, was a total pain changing the gearbox and it seems to have died due to heat related issues.

my replacement daily which is a TS v6 magna wagon just got it's pink slip the other day and it is quite a good car and perfectly suited to my needs and for the $1200 purchace price with 4 months rego i can't complain.

i am now off my red p's and on my green p's so i can finally drive a manual legally so i may end up getting around to doing something with the ed manual sedan.

the bf fairmont is still around and not much has been done it, just mainly the maintenance stuff, but it may not be around for much longer as i am thinking of selling it and getting a 4wd of some description.

cheers, bear
