I thought that is was about time i maybe put a build thread up because i started to make this a bit of a build now

I got this off Members brother in a rather sick and sorry state .
Blown head gasket suspension was stuffed
brakes past state of metal to metal
From here i decided id put a head n it and that would be done .

THis is how the car looked when i first got it .
the bar was starting to peal and had been crashed in the front
Image


I started by putting a airbox that i had developed with miss aly and bri bri for e series .
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then i put my roh 18s of the xf on it to get it going to replace the stockies .

And put a stock stereo from my work at time
Image
Other than that all i added was some venetians sides and back

I decided to take it out for a skid pan day and have a bit of fun .
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image



After about two years i had so many issues with the old original motor that i decided that i would put the
Full xr6 running gear in the car
At the same time i found a el xr6 front bar so decided to put it on . wrong paint colour and all
We then had Lowered 3 inch block in rear taken out and springs reset
Image
And was thinking this
Image

I then started to build the stereo up in this
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
New carpet
Image

Sound deaden the roof
Image
Image
Image
Image


Boot all finished and doors all done
Image
Image
Image
Image



We then decided to put a new diff after the old one had issues 327 gears up from the 3.08
We then took it to the drags.
Think it ran a 16 on standard xr running gear
Image
Image

Inbetween time Pete from Phat Gaurd rolling did the gaurds for me so i could fit some new 20s on it
XHp starcorps



It then become manual and was ready for sandown

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Boot up at Sandown because i was told to
Image

Straight after this my engine decided to have timing case noise so i pulled the motor


Straight after that was cruise for charity
It was on display with new engine
Image

We didn’t finish it in time so the next few weekends were busy

Been away for a few weeks to family death and that so thought id give a little update .

I managed to blow up my radiator few weeks back and had thinking about upgrading .
I was lucky that someone had built one and never used it and was able to swap some parts for it .
I also have got a overflow purchase for it
Which ill put pics up later this week .

Also over last 5-6 months we have been developing a new gauge pod for efel nf nl and this is how it looks at the moment
Made out of similar mould to the airboxs i do

Does your airbox suit the 6 cyl log manifold style? Are you selling these still?
