Hi guys,

I joined up on this wonderful website a week or two ago and thought it was time I introduce my new family ride 03/98 Falcon Gli.

I used to own a Heritage Green EL XR6 back in 03' but I soon traded that for my current ride/toy car 'BA Xr6 Turbo' which i've owned since 04/2005.

My current mission is to get this El gli to look just like my El xr6 did and am currently in the process off buying/picking up some goodies as we speak. :grin:

I think thats enuff for now but i will update the build on my ride as we go along...

cheers

Sorry, 4got about the pics....lol

Wow!!!

Thankss for the lovely feedback guys. :)
The colour has really grown on me and the most lovely thing about it is it changes colour when the sun shines on it and it gives such a wonderful sparkle/shine.

Just got back from picking up a EL XR6 Bonnet and a EL XR6 Tickford cluster both for $200. :)
The bonnet is on as we speak but im waiting for the front bar to arrive from Sydney so i can send it off to the panel beaters and get it painted in the lovely Galaxy Blue colour.

I also picked up a el xr6 clock, interior xr6 spear badge, exterior tickford badge,
xr headlights and indicators so yeah its starting to look like my old EL XR6 but yeah just a matter of getting all the panel work done before all the goodies go on. Cant wait. :)

Thanks for the feedback mate. :)
The interior actually is a standard gli but yeah i have been chasing xr headrests but nobody want to sell them separately from the seats which i totally understand.

The xr front bar should arrive from sydney tomorrow or the day after which will go straight into the paint shop inc the bonnet. :)

I will update this thread as just as the car gets updated. :)
