This is my new toy that i got about 2 weeks back. Its '98 EL XR6, 180XXXkms, sunroof and ticky kit.
Since ive had it, its had all the fluids changed(hoses, clips changed aswell), front/rear bushes changed, spark plugs, genie headers and hi flow cat, 2.5 exhaust, the rims from my old car have been put on, blinker fixed up and just the normal stuff.

Im looking at a boat so this will become a towcar. so nothing major will be done to it. until i get the edge and change the engine in it haha.

enjoy

Is it auto or manual??

Looks good!!
Much prefer the front of the EL's to the EF thats for sure.
Deleting the aerial makes a world of difference for the aesthetics. But prob not high on your list considering its intended use!

And make sure that you delete the tyre valve caps as well, as that also makes a world of difference for the aesthetics! Oh and while you're at it, delete the 'Ford Safety Glass' inscription on the quarter windows. They look the business when you've done that!!!

Seriously...................Bwaahaaaaaaahaaaahaaaaa......

That would have to be one of the most laughable comments I have ever read on here.

dont worry philaddis, i had a laugh aswell. but each to their own

wild el- from my understanding they are an exact copy of the BA XR6 rim. I cant remember if they are of the xr6 or xr6t. im not sure. ive had them for about 2years. ford rims were just too expansive. thanks. im happy with it atm

aerials look s**t.
did you notice how your current ride no longer has it hanging out the front quarter?
I removed the aerial from my old EF XR8 and fitted up a BMW style fin at the back of the roof.
Looked the goods.
