that would be because with one bag full the exhaust will flow back through the system to the other side until the pressure is even on both sides then they will blow... the only way to truly tell is an air flow meter on each pipe and measure the flow coming out with no bags attached

I was a big fan of your sedan... why did you destroy it again?

Not sold on the wagon, sometimes I like the rear bar, and then other times...

The sedan was destroyed due to stupid ex gf and then because how I decided to paint it after the damage she caused was a love or hate thing which then ment that the car couldnt be sold even at a stupid price, so it was stripped. Many parts went on the wagon and some were sold and what was left was crushed.

The wagon is looking different then it does in the posted pictures. Every panel except the roof has been stripped to bare metal. The rear bar has changed slighty and the boot spoiler has been removed. the bonnet has been changed and the shaker intake modified to seal under the bonnet. The rear flares are also gone. The front flares and bonnet scoop are moulded to the car but not finished but look alot smoother.

Currently I am modifying the rear wheel arches so that the arch will be about 2 inches lower. It will have a flare back on it but it will be steel not fibreglass. I am also workng on a new spoiler that will actually be part of the d-pillar trims.

Inside the wagon has a pair of sporty body hugging black leather seats but no idea what they are from and who cars when they were free. Also the stereo surround has had some work done so that it fits around the cd player and cb radio. I may also have a taxi dispatch computer and fare meter coming for the car as well. Neither work but will add to the theme.

Another new thing will be the removal of the back side windows due to me breaking one. So instead of replacing the glass it will be covered so the car has a 4 door panel van look. As yet I havent decided on using fiberglass of steel for it. There could even be a chance that the back doors could be welded. The reason is my wife and I are having another kid and 4 kids dont fit in the wagon how it is, so I can do some stuff that isnt so family friendly now because it cant be used as a family hauler

Performance Forums purchase is the best thing that could happen to this car. At least it would be out of its misery.

I dont mind people giving things a go and trying something new but seriously you need to give yourself a good b**ch slapping..... Replace the broken window..... Weld up the back doors??? Slap yourself again....

Sorry it has to be said.......

Most people dont like this car which I dont care if they do or dont as its mine. The bog thing has been bought up many times and it seems that people seem to forget the fact that besides the rear bar which is only being done so I can make a mould there isnt alot of bog in the car. There is bog on the fibreglass scoop/bonnet, the fibreglass front flares and on the fibreglass front bar the rest of the car is entirely metal and what bog is there is used for smoothing and blending, Not for building.

I have had no experience with paint or panel prior to this and it shows but by me stuffing up I try to learn. I am not like one of the many many many people who throw money at various different shops and purchase something that every second person seems to have or pay other people to do stuff on my car and then claim that I built a unique car.

Legit parts? not exactly sure what you mean but with the last car almost everything was a quality name brand product with only a couple of things not being name brand eg; boot spoiler, bonnet scoop although the company I got the bonnet scoop off is know becoming more well known.

Alot of parts from that car have been transfered to this car, but some stuff just isnt avalible eg: full rear bar, induction to work with bonnet scoop, dual tail pipes.

If brands like Ford, Mobil, DBA, King springs, Venom, Pioneer, Uniden, Pedders arent legit parts please let me know what is.

Also value isnt really a concern. The car was a full taxi spec car owned by a taxi company and used as a taxi albeit not full time. Ex taxi's are almost worth less and with e-series falcons getting older every day and late model stuff getting cheaper all the time even a non taxi gli wagon can be purchase very cheaply. If this wagon was a fairmont ghia or similar then there is no way it would be how it is as they have some sort of value.

E series and value? Unless you mean 1/2 pack of Winnie blues and a couple of VB throwdowns from your local flannowearing bogan, then the two words can never be used in the same sentence.
