I posted this in the wrong spot, lol...... new much?

my project and where im at.

All feedback is welcome, but, if you have nothing nice to say, please keep it to yourself.

My car is an EF Falcon, white and bog stock....was.
To explain the build and how i got here ia a tale so enjoy the read.

I purchased the car as a run around, stock except for the 17" ROH rims and chopped springs "bogan much" it served me well for.months i had a small mishap, car+curb at 40km side.on = whats linkage smashed out the diff and one undrivable car.

So i had a.dead car and a need to fix it..... the makings of a project.
Recently born son, so had to have a car, my mun also recentky.passed and i needed to be constructive with my time, yhe bottle i crawled into for a month wasnt doing me any favours.

So it began

Same time a mate dropped a 2JZ GTE Twin turbo into his Supra, cost him 7k just for engine and professsional install. " i vet you couks do a whole car for that or less" was my words.....

So a $$ limit has been set, 5-7k including the purchase price of thw car. A big ask.......

I purchased a EL Fairmobt for parts, and got lucky, so here is the lisr ao far, ill add pictures when i work out how.

LSD diff - baremetalled and sprayed ford bkue in engine enamel
Undersiden- 100% matt black and very VERY clean
Rebuilt rear brakes - strippes as diff, ford blue in 1000' enamel

Driveshaft - ford blue in 300' enamel

" all painted items recieved 3-7 coats.... "

Heaps more interior panels black, door rubbers white

Fairmont intake installed, now.blue, used anodised paint, took 9 layers but looks mint.

New springs and shocks
Fix, paint and detail the rims

A time consuming process, the black has 3+ coats
The blue is at least 3 as well. With hours and houra of touch ups to get it all done right.

Its been ages since i posted but thought id try and make.some effort.
Ive been actively planning and buying bits for the car, and looks like ill be doing a big build in the new year.

Unfortunatly ive done Nothing 100% sweetFA to the car in the last 8 weeks.
Working everyday, no time..... its killing me.

Im been looking into an engine rebuild.
New paint design
How to upgrade the front brakes
What forced induction will be best
How to improve on my previous ideas and heaps more.

I have however made a decent effort.with the body, dent removal, rust removal and.so forth.
That doesnt.take.much time so easy to do 5 mins here n there.
