Well all of my interior is a light shade of grey, and if i do anything with the headliner it would be to replace it or restick it because i sags now like no bodies business ! The only thing that stops it from dropping on my head is the sun visor !

Get a series 1 eb lining, pull the material off, clean the board, get some new foam & contact glue & fix it up, then fit that. Probably cheapest way to get a darker roof lining.

Ok got a quote on some Lowered Shocks today, Autobarn gave me a price tag of abit under $450 and Sprint Autoparts gave me a quote of about $285 so it looks like the EB is getting slammed on its a** soon. I decided if i go ahead with slamming it, it will receive my Superlows, i am now longer thinking about downgrading to low springs. Hopefully this will end my awful 4wd Drive with stock shocks.

Also still waiting on my Pipe should get it Monday.......well i hope because i am flying out to Sydney Tuesday morning and would like to have it on before i go ! I will also order my shocks before i leave so when i get back i get a nice surprise !

It would depend if the lowered shocks actually drop the ride height of the car before you take into account the superlow springs. Remember, you don't want to drop your car below the state legal minimum ground clearance for your state. Hell, my EB with SL's is hard enough to get over some speed humps and it still can go another 20mm lower and be legal.....

I have "short stroke" shocks in my EB, designed to be run with lower than stock springs, so the shocks don't bottom out, which is very bad for them & very unsafe.

Cheers

SAD Update

Just found a V6 Magna that has full leather interior which looks mint, 5 speed manual, great paintwork, and both heater and aircon work so should be seeing that in my carport on Tuesday !

Only thing sad about that is that it is front wheel drive, unless you got an AWD model, but i doubt that.....

So what happens with the ford?

Yea it isnt AWD so the front wheel drive is a bummer !

The ford will be stripped of all the audio and then refitted with some cheaper audio and then will be sold off !
