Hey peoples I'm pretty new on here and I just bought my first falcon after 12 years of driving. I paid $3k for it at a car yard. It has a couple of things wrong with it but nothing too strenuous lol.
Things on my fixit list:
Power steering rack and high pressure hose.
New front seal.
New lifters.
New tint.
New front headlights (hid upgrade :D)
Xr8 snorkel and 3" tb to airbox hose.
Kings SL springs all round and new shocks.
2.5" catback + 2.5" metal cat
Gnarly stereo =D
New chrome pinstriping
I'll add some pics in a minute lol

Well it looks like its worth doing all that work to mate.
I did the rear main seal the rear auto seal and the front diff seal to mine as well. but all the rest look fine to me. Will know better after I get it road worthy and get it regoed and then take it for a long drive

Well good luck mate
