Over the past month i have purchased 2 NA fairlanes.

Car 1: 1990 6cyl 4sp auto, blue velour interior, all electrics work, regod untill april. The motors rooted has a blown head gasket and the rings arent to flash.

Car 2: 1989 6cyl 3sp auto, motor seems pretty good, half the electrics dont work and its been out of rego for a year.

Basically the first fairlane is the new daily i grabbed the second fairlane for parts and its almost ready to go to scrap things that will be going into the white one are.

Throttle cable
motor
grill
tailights and garnish
i have also kept all the electrics spare and kept a few bits for my xf (diff, seats, console)

i have orderd a large stack of parts for the new engine i should be picking those up tomorrow night ill be degreasing the new motor and giving the block and rocker cover a fresh coat of paint im thinking blue or silver? I plan to have this running in the next few weeks i then need to sort out the power steering leak and chuck some brake pads in it. I have also decided to leave it stock and will be getting a set of 15" alloys a little later on.

This is a fair way behind where the cars at now it will be on the road this weekend i hope had a few dramas with it.

firstly my brother inlaw got some gaskets etc for me
Image
put the engine on the stand
Image
fixed the leaky sump found the bit of plastic in there and gasket goo in the oil pick up
Image
pressure washed it and painted it up
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
me and lukey_1990 put the motor in
Image
but it had to come out i forgot the plate that goes between the block and bell housing and the left engine mount wouldnt line up me and dad got it sorted
Image
Image
me and dad finished it off and i fired it up note no exhaust running out the cat it was bloody loud
Image
finished off the ltd grill
Image
Image
fitted my better tailights and garnish
Image
Image
the ones with the gold strip are the ones that went on
Image
engine bay coming along
Image
got some wheels 18s arent staying on it its staying stock apart ltd grill and these wheels once i get tyres
Image
Image
Image
Image
i fitted some new front brake pads wich is where the gremlins happend
Image
^ me and dad started bleeding them but couldnt get any pedal pressure we kept trying to bleed them thinking there may be some air in the system so some advice from my brother inlaw i pulled the calipers off and did the slides still no go ended up being the master cylinder the little piston inside was stuffed so i grabbed one from a wreckers i accidently broke a brake line due to incorrect tools brother inlaw will be up this weekend with some tools to fix it.
dug through my spare parts and got out the white mirror covers i had looks abit nicer
Image
so this week is operation clean up before it hits the road i started with the boot its shocking. A few weeks ago me and dad had the boot trims off we found a little bottle "Water for sarinjes 5ml" and 2 used needles hidden behind a boot trim wrapped up in a paper bag dad was like probably drugs carefully opend ah dirty C*** LOL
Before
Image
and now carpet was filthy i hosed it all off have to wait untill it drys also cleaned the boot trims
Image
Image
Image
also polished up the chrome bits and tried 1 wheel
Image
Image
Image

I also vaccumed the interior ill finish cleaning that tomorrow afternoon ill put the boot back together once the carpet drys it will also get a wash and polish and hopefully be able to start dailying next week.
