G'day guys!

My name is Josh, 19 years of age, living in Redcliffe QLD.

Picked up my EL Falcon about 6 months ago for $1000 from my mum. We bought it from the auctions in about 2001ish as an ex-police car. Since then it's been in the hands of my mum who is a 50km/h driver, and treats it like a baby.... until i got my hands on it. Almost 200k on the clock.

So, so far things I have done to it:

- Extractors and 2 1/2" mandrel bent exhaust.
- Adjustable Shift kit
- Pod Filter ($40 Supercheap Auto brand... Will be replacing)
- 12" Sub I had lying around the house, and clarion speakers all round.

Things I am doing/have bought to go on it:

- Lovell Ultra Lows
- Lowered Shocks
- Currently as we speak it is getting a respray, a two tone; original Blue on the bottom and Gun metal grey with blue flakes on the top:

Pictures of progress:

Primer is on and ready for top coat... Just waiting for the rain to go away

What I'm hoping for it to look like (not actually my car just illustration purposes)

Also just bought some 17's from a forum member for $300:

Need to source out some roadworthy tyres for it.

Other future plans:

- Fit a 5 speed AU motor and box
- Tidy up the interior possibly some of those leather seat covers from ebay
- Turbo or supercharger once i get everything else sorted... get a reco done on the AU engine at work first.

So i'll be popping in and out of this thread on different things I do, nothing too exciting just your regular mods for falcons.

Feedback welcome at any time, constructive or negative.

Cheers
Josh

Hey,

Thought I would update on what I am doing to my falcon at the moment.

Just bought some Slotted front rotors yesterday and got them today, should hopefully be installing them tomorrow afternoon. Also got some AU injectors reconditioned, so they should be going in this weekend.

Things in the next month:

977B Wade Cam
XR Front end (hit a pole so a bit of damage of the p/side indicator)
300Kpa Fuel Regulator
And mandrel bent intake pipe.

Here is a link to my photobucket album on whats happening:

another local boy hey.. you should carry the black/grey (cant work it out as each pic is a different shade) right down to the bottom, dump it on its nuts and respray the stockies and your set... and possibly ditch the nudge bar
