It's always a good idea to take a walk around a "pick a part" style wreckers to see some partially dismantled car's, then you get an idea of what it looks like underneath the plastic trims. Especially good for checking out wiring looms....

i agree with the torana lover :P

i love wreckers, pulling things apart is how i learnt how to do pretty much everything i know. and being at a wreckers it doesnt matter if you break anything lol

not much new to report. gunna put interior conversion off for a bit now. i have a fair idea wat to do for it now tho. (thank u forums)

i am wanting to go 5 speed within the next couple of months but i need to know a few things first...
wat r ALL the things i need? obviously the box and manual pedals but wat else?
am i going to need a different diff and ECU?
i was speakin to a mate the other day (who is on this forum) and he said v8 boxes are hard to get ur hands on so the best way to go is get a 6 cyl t5 and get a v8 bell housing.
i have got people who can help me do it, or rather basically do it all but i just wanna know what exactly is required and how much is the goin rate for a manual conversion these days?
if anyone has a good condition v8 manual conversion in vic at a good price let me know!

thanks - jarrod

Good luck offloading yours mate. Tried selling mine last year for similar $$$ with zero interest.
End of the day, I was glad it didn't sell. Bigger plans are now back on the drawing board :mrgreen:

excuse the crappy quality.
plans for that is maybe drive it around for a while then thinking a 351C, 4 speed man, lower it a bit and some 12 slotters... still not sure about it all yet tho.

cheers.

Any progress on the XD?

Here's a couple of pic's of my old XD wagon for motivation :wink:

Had 351C, 4 speed manual and 12 slotters, just like on your wish list!

Would love to see the red wag's come to life :mrgreen:

Cheers,
Mick

haha that wagon is awesome! think my brother might be buying the wagon so hopefully he will do all that! i wanna do it all myself but it's all time and money i dont really have.
i'll throw the lane on carsales soon and see how it goes. if it doesnt sell then alls good, i might end up building it up one day

lol we seem to have similar tastes!

We do! Owned that wagon a very long time ago......approx 16 years ago (showing my age now :oops: ) probably long gone now. Bloke I swapped with was well known for destroying cars :evil:

Bit of a story here on how I came to get the XD....and how I lost it :roll:

im calling BS:

1. there is no stone chips in the front
2. why would you remove the plates
3. there is a sticker on the top of the window passenger side
4. finding a DC LTD with all the parts in it like perfect carpeted kick panels and such is too big a task
5. no one purposely puts those rims on - yes i know i have them on my LTD but they wont go onto the fairlane
6. you dont go backwards in steering wheels - the 'old one' would have suited more
7. chances of someone noticing and replacing console with leather unit along with kick panels and all the small things is slim (not impossible but most people dont bother)
8. finding pillar trims and roof trims in good enough condition to warrant installing is slim
9. drilling holes and getting the chrome strip on the bonnet to line up perfect is a huge job
10. no signs of badge or badge removal - and you wouldnt delete the V8 badge
11. it has a towbar or atleast something hanging back there...
12. and of course the biggest one - the car sales stamp on each pic lol

but thats just on a quick view :P lets just say i have spent alot of time looking at the differenced between NC and DC lol

I bought a DC for exactly the same reason.......was just too hard to find all the little "LTD" bits for the Lane. Pity it turned out to be an absolute POS! :evil:

Anyway.....very nice score on the DC........looks to be in A1 condition :mrgreen:

Cheers,
Mick
