Ride: ED Futura

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Originally started life as a futura, is so much more now! Got the best bits of everything!

The car was purchased in April '06 and had had a few things done to it such as 2.5" exhaust, cam and extractors. Originally I had just gone to matts place to buy some parts for my currant car at the time an EB2 GLi and when he decided to sell his car I wanted to buy it as it was much nicer than the EB and was manual and on gas and already had things done to it. Plus it was dynamic white rather than the stark white of my EB ;)

This was taken just before I bought it however when I got it, it came with ED XR wheels and the clear indicators
Image

I drove around as it was for a while until the mod bug bit and then started to hang with braden and then came the sound system. Had 2 15" Boss audio subs which were alright hooked up to a jaycar monoblock. Also painted the inside of the headlights.
Image

After that the next mod was to get the windows tinted, limo tint on the back and 20% on the sides and got some EL XR wheels. This is basically How it sat at that point in time
Image

Image


Image

Image

I then put on a full 2.5" exhaust as the old one was only the mis section with a standard tailpipe. I also painted the C pillars for something different. The amber section of the taillights also got some tinting done.
Image

Image

Mods and things were on the quiet for a while as I was slowly stockpiling bits and pieces for the bodykit when I eventually got it done.

I managed to find a bonnet with a bulge already fitted on ebay which I snapped up real quick and had it fixed and sprayed at bradens work.
Image

Image

Drove around like this for some time and might add got a few strange looks!

then came the rest of the kit, essentially an EB GT kit with a modified front bar to fit XR lights.

Image

I then managed to procure myself a set of dark agents
Image

Image

After that came EB GT skirts, EL ghia door moulds and mad up my own custom badge and basically this is where it sat early december before we mutilated it!

Image

Image

Image

Image


Then after the engine being pretty much s**t and the gearbox about to give way a new project was undertaken!

Basically the car was stripped right down to a shell with nothing left over, installed NF fairlane body loom, EL Ghia dash and wiring, DF fairlane door wiring and el engine bay wiring to make way for an AU motor! Oh and we took gas off it.

Cheers Cam

I LOVE this car.... Well done man, it's gorgeous....

My EA has the GT kit, I have no wing though, also mine's white and soon to have an AU XR6 engine!

Yours makes me wish I left the chrome on my door strips when we painted them, though.... I wanted too...

I love the dark color on the lips of your bars, also. Looks sweet.

current hight looks fine to me... you said you now have power windows...? what door trims are you using now? before rims id get some better seats... i think AU seats bolt straight in? or BA XR seats look great, are getting pretty cheap and a few people have done the conversion... and again love the look from the side, ghia door molds, clear indicators, wheel arch flares, body coloured EF mirrors and EF door handles :) perfect...

Cheers Cam

Agree with fourL6, the ride height is perfect, any lower and it just wouldn't look right.

Im using EL ghia door trims now. I know how bad those seats look :( I wince every time I get in the car, its like theyre letting the interior down the most. The rear seat is fine, its EL ghia but those front seats struggle. When its more financially viable, ill be going with BA XR Leather pack seats and adding a few more black highlights throughout the interior so as the black seats in grey interior dont look too out of place!
