Ride: ford ef xr6

Location: newe
NSW, Australia

Heres my ford ef xr6 series 2. is a 96 model has140,000 kms on it. Im actaully gunna get into it.
Now i have started my apprenticeship which means money :)

Have shown this car in a previous forum thought i would put up a new one seeing as im getting stuck into the work.
The plans: The car looks lovely with a respray job but as all of yous would know there is alot of a** holes that do things half hearted and is for us to fix there stuff ups. For instance I took the car to the local mechanic that informs me that the bcm had been bi-passed for some unknown reason, It has now been reconected and am told that it can take between 30 to 50 starts before the car can reprogram itself. Next problem the car had been fitted with a double plated clutch which i cant wait to get rid of. The fire wall was not braced properly which has now inturn made it crack. So it needs to be welded up and a plate fitted behind it and a SINGLE plated clutch fitted. Went to bero smash the other day and had a quote for close to a $1000 to fix this problem does anyone else have any sujestions. The right hand power window is not workiing at all. There is rust in between the boot and the rear window. Im going to respray the front bar and fix the cracking in the fibreglass. I would like to put a new set of rims on it maybe 19's or 20's. The interior beeing stripped plastics beeing painted Au seats being fitted new carpet roof linning etc. Other little things going to be done aswell such as painted break calipers window tinting little dings being repaired and so on. If anyone has any sujestions to my problem or other mods let me know :)
