Last weekend I up graded the trim to all el xr trim I haven't got pics yet
Future plans are to lower it do exhaust and then I'll clean the body up and play with the engine if anyone has any ideas on what I can do to my ef fill free to tell me thanks

nice car man. Firstly it has mass sleeper potential being a V8, secondly, those wheels look mint, i was gonna buy them for my car but wasnt sure, but seeing them on yours i think i might. Whats your plans for it?

Thanks mate I had a choice of these wheels and el xr wheels but I like these better my plans at this stage is put the 3.45 xr diff in that I have out of my doner car lower it so it dont look like a 4wd and exhaust and sterio at this stage then latter on I would like to paint it in the same colour and put a tickford body kit on it but that will be a little while away yet

ive got the el xr wheels on my car atm, honestly i love them, suit the e series to a T and for the amount of k's and towing i do, i dont think it would be a good move for me to go bigger rims. As i said to a mate of mine, i dont often see wheels that i really really want but these were the exception.

Definetly lower it, the 3.45 will be a great help and the exhaust is a great starting mod for a bit more go, goodluck ill be keeping my eyes on this
