Hey guys,
Got a mate on here (martys xr) who got me onto this. So i thought id show you my ride

Pretty much bought it for $2000 about 2 years ago. Nothing much has been done to it, just genie extractors, hi flow cat, twin black dumpers :D , been lowered, and then the rims. Tossing up whether to keep it, cause i love the colour, or sell it and buy an xr.
If i keep it, i want- full respray
-lowered about another 3/4inch
-sound system
-And then turbo'd once off the greens

Here she is-
As a stocker or shocker

Probably the best part of the car haha

Gidday, and welcome to Fordmods.

Mate, there is nothing wrong with the height of your car. It looks like it is on lows currently.

Paint can cost big dollars, so consider how long you want to keep the EF before spending all the $$$$$.

We meet regularly on Friday nights at Liverpool near Harry's de Cafe, between the Subway and Oporto stores.

You are welcome to come along and say hi. If you want to hang around a bit, bring your own chair.

Cheers
BenJ

Hey...is your EF Arctic Blue Q9?
If it is then yes its an awesome colour and to motivate you on doing the re-spray take a look at mine.
Before:

After:

Price goes like this..$250-$350 a panel...so lets just say $300 a panel. If you have damage then it will cost more obviously.
EF has 13 panels including front and rear bar (2 quarter panels and roof are considered as 3 panels) + beaver panel.
That adds up to about 4k

Nar its not the same. its not as navy?? hard to explain. all it said in the book was Blue 05X407G, so not sure
Looks really mint resprayed. i got quoted about $1400 for front/rear bumpers, bonnet, roof, boot

Quick question aswell, your clear side repeaters, whered ya get them from?? are they AU ones or actually ef/el ones?

cheers
