Tidy looking wagon mate. Lucky score on the tailgate spoiler, had my eye out for one for the wife's wagon but no luck so far.

Where you play at? My brother in law is a mad KISS fan and even goes as far as dressing up as Gene whenever there is a fancy dress party on :lol: We live out at Lake Macquarie so will have to keep an eye out on the local gig guide if your playing out this way.

Cheers,
Mick

Looking good mate, love the wagons, on the grill front, any fairmont, fairlane, or ltd will fit personally check this out.

link

cheapest Fairlane grille you'd ever buy, normally 100-120 ltd grills get 250-350ish.
and then you could try for an EL faimont grill, little bit cheaper, but still a few dollars, I may have a spare about.
Or try something custom say like in FBT's etc. a few have pulled off some nice custom ones.
either way ood luck with it.

Phew hard work, got the complete loom that runs to all 4 doors and centre console switches from the doner car and installed in the wagon so thats fitted to drivers side kick panel area so far.
Also while the consol was partially out i fitted the loom for the curtiousy light in the back of the consol, that was easy ! lucky i have few days off.

Only pics i have are me sweating my a** off in this humidity.

Bit more progress on my Pimp wagon, the XR wagon wing is on and sealed, test painted the Fairmont side indicator moulds and fitted them ( wanted to see if i liked them, i do ) will paint the rest and fit them up also got the passenger side doors electric widows fitted,wired etc using the doner car original loom.
Doner car dash is out to access all the wiring i need,ive also put all the wind up widow gear from my wagon back into the doner car to keep it semi complete for when i move it on its actually a rust and damage free body.

Power widows now functional , took some time but ended up intergrating the doner car wiring to the original wiring for a good result, all very tidy.

Damn, that is not good news.

PITA to, changing a wagon fuel pump. Have a couple of buckets for the fuel to drain into, and jack up the left side of the car as high as you can so the fuel left in the tank will be over on the right hand side as much as possible.

Cheers
BenJ
