Nice list, should work well. Year 12, I'm finishing up now and trust me, expect your mods to go ALOT slower than expected. Best of luck.

I have to dispute that... haha
Im half way through my HSC now (got 3 of 6 tests left) and Ive done more to my car in the last 2 months than I even did to any car previously... haha

Your mont has some serious modding coming its way Mitch,
Most of it really unique and awesome.
cant wait to see the progress.

Cheers,
Russ.

well i've decided against buying the tickford kit and i'll just paint my current dash,

reason is my mate wants to keep his el running as a bush basher, and i won a front to back typhoon kit including lights and mesh for 700 bucks tonight, but it will be joined and fibre glassed so i can learn some skills and also cause it works out a cheaper method, i'll be buying the front and rear bars from my mates ef fairnont in the back yard

Cheers Mitch

alright so i did a photoshop today cause i was bored at home, (injured my shoulder 2 days before going to work coming off a water tube :roll: )

but this is what i did, not sure of the ford badge or not yet, if it's done it will be set so that it sits flush with the tickford kit pod

well tonight i remembered about my brothers of bf gt bar on his ef that got ripped off so i got the trusty old zip ties and zip tied it to the front of my car and drove up and down the driveway to ensure that it didn't scrap on anything which it didn't so now i have a height i can go to with the car, i might unbolt my bar and out this on on just so i can get a better test cause zip ties aren't the greatest of methods
