hey guys, thourght i'd do a build thread. Even though nothing is happening for a while. lost my job.

Most people have seen my EB somewhere. Forums, cruises adn hindley st ona sat night :lol:

Any ways, its a 1992 EB2 GLi, I got in mid 07 for $800. I got it when I was 15 as a car to drive on my L's. Was gonna get a R32!!! But I fell in love with the boxcars. Now, E series all the way.

It started life a standed Everglade GLi auto, but the old owner had converted it to T5 :D

It looked like this for a while.

Image

King springs SL's, Exhaust, stereo, and the taillight treatment.

I then left school and got more serious with it.
Full AU Intech swap.
Image
Image

Then it got the territorys.
Image

next problem was on its 3rd defect, I found a heap of rust!
Passerger side sill panel removed.
Image
passerger side rear wheel arch.
Image
drivers side sill panel
Image
drivers side front gaurd.
Image

and while it was off the road, I put DA LTD back seat and door trims on it.
Image
with fairmont front seats

Then all new metal.
drivers side sill
Image
new rear passenger side wheel arch
Image

This was when when the skyline front bar and EB GT kit went on.
Image
Image
Image

I then modded the front bar some more. was 55mm of the ground, little too low.
Image
Image


Since then just been fixing stuff that breaks. I broke the T5's outher housing 2 weeks ago. replaced that last weekend, replaced the tailshaft, and replaced a heap of other s**t along that way

Its not to everyones tastes, but Im so bored of the whole clean and simple boxcar look, time for something different. :D

Thanks mate, it takes a bit to get used to, I'll agree. was tempted to just put a GT front on it at first. but Im now used to it and I love it.

Im looking at gettin a EB/ED XR6 LSD, forget ratios on them. :oops:

But my aim ever since I started driving it is to get it in a magazine. when I get a new job, Im taking the motor out redoing the complete bay. hidden wiring, respray the bay, then looking at building the motor. ready for boost.

But since I've destroyed 2 T5's already. A T56 convertion is on the cards. looking at selling my XF to help fund it. but we shall see whhat happens.

I had the standeds on there with a fairmont garnish but it made it look to much like try hard GT. so the clears went on again. I really wanted the factory red/clear tretment, but gave up on that after a broken taillight.

If anyone wants so to me some, I'll pay. :lol: since I got the red/clear look fairmont garnish already.
