Hey guys im 17 Currently in Year 12 and Work in Fast Food so i dont have that much money to put towards my car. My Old car was a 1983 Toyota Corona pictured below it was a good car but i needed a newer car with a bit more power. So then i purchased a 1993 EB Falcon it only cost me $1300 but the cons were. . . . .

CONS:
Odometer Broken on 213K's so got a new one with 233k's on it
Back left door central locking is broken (just needs a new motor)
Master Cylinder is Leaking (Still Need to fix it)
Car broke down a week later due to losing an Alternator Belt (Fixed Now)
Straight Petrol (Cost too much to run)
Losing Coolant Out of overflow bottle (Fixed Now)

MODS PLANNED
Extractors (Fitting in a week)
Sports Exhaust (Fitting In a Week)
Mags (Need some Cheap Ones or maybe some EF FTR's)
Needs To Be Lowered

This is my Falcon When I Got It

Got some clear indicators and then took the badge off ! Then i thought i would get myself some second hand extractors and an exhaust i may have been ripped off due to not getting pacies like i was told and the Wildcats i got were rusted ! The exhaust was good, actually is better than expected but i had some work to do to make the extractors look good

But after i put the extractors on the car the rust converter wasnt heat proof (rust converter was my undercoat) and then all the paint came off

Got a fairmont boot garnish for $24 from U-Pull It which is a real bargain a local wreckers wanted $125 and another one wanted $80 but at this point undecided whether to tint or not

Yea close up the paint isnt at its best but when its clean it looks nice and i think its tar that only comes off the bonnet and boot with a cut and polish ! I have also done and Au Centre console mod and the EF/EL Shifter mod i will post pictures up shortly ! Also the springs i have a Lovells superlows !

Good man :mrgreen:

I like what you've done with the AU console. It would be one of the first mods i do if i ever own a boxcar, makes the interior less square looking :lol: Did it take much work to get it to sit right with the auto shifter being able to select each gear? Ive only seen it done in boxcars with manuals..

Not really just cut a bit out of the front and test fit it, i love the idea of it and instead of trying to fit the AU Shifter i think the EF knob on the EB Shaft works fine. The only things i need to do it to bolt it all down but it sits ok atm, and the hole in the plastic surrond, around the shifter shaft/rod is too big so the orange light doesnt line up perfectly all the time. So i need to put something around the shaft that will close the gap between the shaft and the hole ! If all that makes sense !
