i had a sony head unit, alpine 6.5 inch speakers in front doors (had to use spacers to be able to put the window up and down :P ) sony 6X9s and a clarion sub and amp.

when i decided to keep the ef it ended up with the jensen cd player, jensen 6 inch splits in front doors and jensen 6X9's.

and TX5 had a factory cd player in it so i put the jensen in it one night after tafe.

hasnt been that long i dont think :P i owned the ef i ended up wrecking for about a year and a half.

i wouldnt mind another car but this one would have to go, i have been thinking about it on and off these past few weeks :P

update while im typing, gauges are 90% wired up just gotta find a way to get 3 wires and a vaccum line into the engine bay, will probably end up drilling a hole.

Yeah fair enough. There's an EB wagon for sale down here, EBI I think. It's a white GL.

$500 registered, it does leak from the gearbox though, he did ssay from where but I couldn't understand him properly..

If you're interested and the box can't be fixed I have a spare box or two..

If it lasts that long :p

At least you look after it with servicing things and stuff, not just drive in into death.
