Well the job hasnt quite finished as yet, when the head lights where glued back together, 1st attempt was with Araldite and as soon as the headlights were screwed into place the Araldite glued pieces snapped off, I got recommended a glue called ZAP® CA (Pink Label), man its the best glue I have ever used & will be using it in all future plastic gluing.
I will add pics later.

Well today she was cleaned up & reassembled, Pitty the drill battery had died & didn't end up screwing the XR grill in, hopefully in 2 weeks it will be back on the road once again.
It wont be having the plates that are on there now as they have being cancelled thats why I have edited them, I personally don't like the new style plates layout XX-00-XX I rather the old style of plates XXX-000, so I don't know if I will get custom plates or accept the new style :?:

I never had a spool in the 1st place, my mate who had Yobbo's car had the spool and I'm glad the resurection is complete.

Nice work there dude, Car's get written off too quickly by insurance companies these days, if parts can't be bought new over the counter or in reasonable supply second hand, like the Xr lights.

I've been busy panel beating the firewall on a white Eb Xr8, and when that is done & on the road, i have to play with making a red Eb2 Xr8's nose straight again. It's bent worse than yours, but still repairable,no damage to the rails, drives nice still, just need to replace the whole radiator support, bonnet, front bar & give the front of the guards a couple of light love taps, but i have spares anyway. :D

Cheers

ToranaGuy

Thats why I bought it back when it was written off, I had put new springs in the rear, replaced all of the bushes & replaced the rack before it had the front ender.
