Ah well! Won't be stealing that idea! Good luck with it though, will be interesting to see the end product.

LOL I say s**t!!!! My EL interior has been great!!!

He can't do the interior swap anyway, as then I would have to kill him.

Can't have two cars the same!!!!!!!!

Well Huggie, you can wait until my Red EB is stripped, then you can go for it.

well its well and truely overdue for an update. latest mods are:
fitted EA console (better condition then the EB one and looks better)
fitted a battery guage as the current cluster doenst display anything important...
i fitted the JBL 8" sub i had in the fairlane. here is something most probebly dont know, the parcel shelf fabrics are interchangable, the falcons ones are about 10mm wider and need to be trimmed to fit a fairlane, but the fairlane one fits the EB perfectly.

i went to the wreckers today and picked up an AU Rocker cover, Boot carpet, clock, sonsole pieces, stereo brackets, i went hunting for an ED grill but there was none in sight. there was a sexy looking Fairmont garnish... but i left it there.

i also built the sub box to fit under the parcel shelf as per this design:
Image

i just need someting like some dense foam to seal it against the parcel shelf as i dont want damage if i have to remove it.
Image
Image
it obviously doenst have the bottom on it as i need it off to attach it to the parcel shelf which then the bottom will be attached.
Image
this shows just how small the box is. (550x250x120)
Image
this shot shows inside when test fitted. NOTE: it isnt lined up properly as im trying to hold it and use the phone to take pics, but it lined up nicely
Image

here it the amp mounted. im using a Sony 4 channel to power the sub, its running bridged channels and workes great. i also used a sony 8 guage amp install kit, i went with 8g as its only a small amp running a small sub so i shouldnt have any issues.
Image
Image

i mounted the rear speakers to spacers to make them fit due to the size of the factory hole which has also worked in my favour under the parcel shelf
Image

here is my new clock and "wank factor" volt guage lol
Image

and last but not least, the new rockercover. not sure on the final design yet, might just be white with sanded fins, or white with blue flames, but at the tips of the flames fade it a little white...
Image
Image

i also fitted new front shocks (monroe gas) with dobson springs (stock height)

well that concludes my update for now. but stay tuned, as soon as i can find a new bonnet and drivers guard in the same colour there will be more updates.

Hi Huggie

Looking good mate.

The sub box is an interesting idea, and I look forward to seeing you put it into use.

Re the AU rocker cover, before you do any more work on it, you need to check if it will fit on the EB head.

If you look closely at the half moon protrusions on the rocker cover, you will note that all the surfaces are curved. Now go and look at the EB head, and you will see that the half moon cut out has sharp edges where the half moon begins and ends, if you get my drift.

It will be difficult to get it to seal, as the AU rocker cover won't sit down in the hole correctly. I only found this out myself last weekend.

Late ED heads onwards will accept the EF/EL/AU rocker covers.

Sorry to be a mod piker, but better you know about it in advance.


BenJ
