Gday everyone

I've been on Fordmods for a few months now. I came here to see what is possible with these falcons.

I bought a dual fuel EL GLi to drive so I could finally get my long awaited licence.

It looked something like this:

I wanted to get onto modding it and making it "mine". But I had a change of mind where I hated the fact that it was white and was only a base model.. :\ So I sold it and went without a car for just over a month, until I came across a sparkling burgundy Ghia. It was cheaper than what I sold my GLi for which was great. The paint has always had a coat of wax etc. as it still looks really shiny which is AWESOME.

When I bought it:

And just today I scored a whole set of 5 near new wheels and tyres for 600 dollars + swap Ghia wheels from my 2nd uncle.

As of this afternoon:

I'll be putting any other mods/progress here so stay tuned!

The List:
Slotted rotors all round
Lower/Harder suspension + sway bars
Aftermarket speakers (my sub is in pieces already & I've only had the car for 2 weeks LOL)
NL cornering lamps
Some original interior designing ;)

Cheers

Wanting some interior stuff, well im biased here, im selling some gtuff on ebay, check signature. Buy in next 10 mins and recieved a 40 piece set of steak knives.

Good base to start on with. Once you lower it,get rid of the flaps.

Looking good mate, nice car and nice work with the BBM.

Be sure to get some better pics of the car up. When you have a Ghia you are obligated to show the interior too. :D

I love the wheels too.

Cheers SLO, much appreciated.

I've been working on a new cluster design the last few hours.

Let me know what you guys think ;)

Looks mint as mate!! Love the paint, looks like it's in great condition 8-)

Superlow springs and some decent shocks all round and it'll be perfect :mrgreen:

Interior photos:


Everything is in pretty good condition.


95% of the leather is still pretty much perfect.


Some sticker/badge was stuck on and ripped off at some point. The remnants are almost f**k impossible to get rid of..

What a fantastic interior! So clean! I'm very jealous. I'm on the hunt for some nice leather seats and woodgrain trims for my Futura. It's got really clean seats but I really want to make the upgrade to leather.

Nice Car! :)

This Ghia is Stunning!! Paint is gorgeous, Interior is perfect. I am gelous! I hope one day my ghia will be just as good.
Please don't wreck her with cheap C*** P plater type mods. It would be such a waste.
All the best with her! :)

So shiny...

The interior looks factory fresh.

Is that stuff on the dash some some sort of glue? Try using eucalyptus oil. Sounds crazy, I know but, it does work.

Nice interior! Cappa leather is great (I might be a little biased though)

There's this stuff you can get from Bunnings called "oopmh!" It's a citrus cleaner. It's gets some seriously sticky crap off. It would be worth a shot, but I'd test it somewhere first to see it doesn't stuff the colour of the vynil.

+1 Works a charm on pinstriping too.
Just wipe it off after the glue is gone.
