so go guys not much has been happening as i've been saving for coilovers for the ute

but i have a little problem with the ed
i think the old girl is reaching the end of her life with nearly 300000 k's on the clock it's starting to ute a lot of coolant at an alarming rate, i've been told head gasket? but i'm going to get it checked by a mechanic since i got have the know how or time to look into what's wrong and seeing that it cost me $250 and about $1250 on road if it's going to cost over $1000 to fix it i might just look for a new daily driver or engine see what the outcome is

good bye savings :(

hey guys i ended up keeping the ute, not much has happened with it i moved house a month or two ago so now it's kept in a shed which is good :lol:

Image

also i've had xyz coilovers installed in the front and reset leafs
Image

Image

i would like to lower the back a touch more but the only problem with that is i now have a steep driveway which i can just get up now :( but i think it should be alright because it never really gets loaded with weight other then my motorbike..

so i think the plan will be to get a bulge bonnet to match the hardlid and have the front bumper and bits and pieces tidied up paint wise, i've been looking at getting vertini drifts in a 19" but i think for now i might look for some fpv twists to change the look a little bit

hopefully will have updates a little more often now i'm earning more money :P

and as for the ed, it's had a hard couple of months blew the diff to pieces so it now has a xr6 lsd in it apart from that it hasn't really changed bodywork is getting small nicks and scuffs due to being a daily but might look a tidying it up a bit

hey guys just lookimg for some tips and advice.
few weeks ago i bought a ed 93 wagon factory five speed which will be giving its manual parts to my ed and i was wondering is there anything i need to do apart from obliviously swapping everything over to my sedan..

reason for asking is i know the older falcons were known for cracking firewalls and just wondering if i'd have to modify the auto sedan firewall?

never done anything mechanical to this extent apart from tinkering and cleaning things so it'll be a learning curve for me.. should have it started in a month or two after this bloody collarbone is healed.
