well when he bought the spings he didnt know of anyone else with them and on falcons you go one lower in the rear to make it level... not the same in fairlane lol.

ill definately be going superlows all round. this is simply too low. looks good but highly illegal

Image

as you know the headgasket went on it, so i removed the head and dropped it off on briday to get welded and shaved 10 thou so it should come back all shiney and clean. i have a VRS kit and new headbolts on their way which should arrive tue or wednesday.

this is what the head looked like.. bloody great condition for 340 000k's. id say she has been rebuilt ;)
Image


this is what i have been up to since the head went in...

Image
Image
Image


and the next time i post pics you will see the new look rockercover.. something NO ONE has done before...
Image

it will hopefully look amazing ;)

haha yeah. 3rd falcon in 6 months... i dont drive them hard... well i havnt driven this one apart from home in pouring rain and in a fairlane with a LSD and heavy a*** you dont plant your foot in the rain or you will end up going towards a tree, the other time was getting the exhaust done.

so i dont know why they always pick me. altho i do know why this one went, the water jackets were corroded out and were touching the metal rings on the head gasket which is why its costing me an extra 55 bucks... but 121 bucks for 5 welds and a 10 thou shave isnt too bad
