well i thought i would start a build thread like everyone else but with a difference. I am on the disability pension so mods will be a very slow process. So to make things interesting i will post all repairs and things i do.

As you may know my Eb was written off (see EB wrecking in FS forum) so i picked up this ED with roady and 6 months rego for $1500.Changed the cluster to the high series one(no pic you all know what they look like).

When i bought the car it had no A/C condensor or reciever dryer so i ripped the ones out of the wreck to fit them.
A lesson is to be learn when fitting a condensor. I PUT A HOLE IN THE BLOODY RADIATOR!!!!!!

Decided to put the auto cooler in whilst i was at it.

Hi falcon hell.

Looks like a good clean example of a boxcar you have there. Certainly should make a reliable and good looking daily driver.

I started out by making my cars reliable family trucksters, and then added goodies to them as they came along at the right price.

Keep updating the progress as you go.

I will be happy to help with any advice if you need it.

Cheers
BenJ
