Ride: EF- Wagon

Location: Toowoomba
QLD, Australia

Hey Guys,

I have picked up an ef futura sedan for this misses this week. It is stock as a rock with 241k's but has cruise and front electrics.I have the following planned to be completed over the next 2 months before we move back up to Rockhampton.

* Fairmont Trip Computer, ECU, Door Trims, Rear Electrics, Electric Switches centre console
* New Ignition Barrell, Door & Boot Locks ( solve current ignition problem)
* New Headlights and Blinkers
* Replace dented front drivers guard
* Sports System with Extractors
* Superlow rears, low fronts and shortened shocks all around
* Will prob just use the wagons rims on it, and get some ftrs for the wagon.

The dashboard will be the black one out of the wagon but every light in the dash and console will be blue. (including air con unit etc) There will also be a custom cluster background, and the dvd player and screen installed in it.

The current gearbox is rooted but i did drive it back from Brisbane to Toowoomba with not alot of hassle- just slipped into neutral from time to time.

I have to check the neutral switch on the gear box and if this doesnt fix the problem i will be removing the wagons motor and box and dropping it into the sedan.

Then the wagon will get an au motor and box.

Below are some pics of it atm- but i will update it over the next 2 months as its completed.

Will have a custom Instrument Cluster with all Blue LEDS and template to match. Black dash will be going into this as well as the misses likes the black setup in the wagon atm.

i worked out its just the neutral switch on the gearbox i have in the sedan now so im buying an au motor off Sv-Valiant then bolting the sedans box upto it. The the motor and box outta the wagon will slide str8 into the sedan and im happy that the misses car will be reliable.

Will kepp some more pics on the weekend as i get more stuff done on them both
