Hey guys recently bought a late 98 EL XR6, it's my first car and is a neat car overall but needs a paint job there is not a drop off rust on it!!

What I would like to do to it:
Full respray in factory colour
Full Tickford Body Kit ( Got everything except the front lip, anyone have one? )
Fairmont door inserts to fill the gap - Done
Deciding on whether I should tint EF tailights or keep EL tailights
Change Carpet
Momo steering wheel
Remove mudflaps - Done
Install a mad stereo
Paint brakes
Get some silver agents if my dads wheels don't fit
Detail the underneath of the car as good as I can
Put extractors, high flow cat and 2.5" sports cat back ( Have it all already just have to install it )
Lower it ( Have super low king front and ultra low rear just need shocks and to install them )
And heaps more that I can't think of :P


Some Pics...

Image

Got some presents for it :mrgreen:
Image
Image
Image
Image

Got a MOMO wheel that needs re trimming not sure if I'll use it or not
Image

Got rid of the crappy bonnet shield..
Image

Then gave it a wash!
Image
Image

What tailights does everyone think I should use??
Image

Still don't know what tailights to use..
Image

Took off the bumpers!!
Image

Placed my wing on to see what it looks like..
Image

My condenser was full of bugs and was bent in some spots.
Image

So I decided to clean it up and also degrease the front end..
Image

Tested my footwell lights
Image

And discovered I have a rare car one of 1600 Hybrid EL motors :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :grin: :grin: anyone know what the difference is from a normal EL XR6?
Image

Cleaned up my rear end..
Image

Got some xenon's
Image

Wired and mounted my footwell lights
Image

These are the lights I used
Image

Started cleaning up and painting under my wheel arches
Image

More to come soon!

Today I removed my back left caliper to pull it appart and to paint it red and I will be painting the hub/rotor silver using killrust..

Took me all day to paint and prep as I wanted it perfect so it sticks on well..

I sanded the hub back and used some rust converter to get ready to paint silver tomorrow..

Here's a preview...

Image

Should have another update tommorow!

give the paint a good polish before you decide on a respray it looks pretty clean and straight in the pics

So today I finished the other rear brakes and I'm very happy with it just needs to be driven to take the paint off the disc, I have also pulled out the original springs so I can paint everything and to fit the ultra lows!

Here's how the car looks at the moment...

With a wheel sitting in place..

Does anyone know what the weld is there for is it to help brace the firewall??
Image

Tomorrow should be painting the diff..

yes that weld is to help reinforce the firewall, only needs to be done on the manual cars!
as over time the firewall can crack

not really, the welds look pretty average though could always grind them off and re weld nice and neat

or remove the plate and add a nicer looking plate on with better welds

Today's update!

Painted my diff and most the rear suspension..

Here's half of it painted to show a before and after...
Image

Fully painted..
Image

The King ultra lows next to the standard ones not much difference between them in height but the ultra lows were a bit softer...
Image

Put in the new springs...
Image

And that's how it sits with a 19" agent..
Image

More to come!
