Thanks for your reply,

I only plan to use the resistor trick until i get one of those J3 chips.

What have you heard about the resistor trick that makes it not sutch a wise move?

If i do decide to buy a manual ecu does anyone know if it will affect things like power windows and stuff like that?

Im under the impression that everything like that is controlled but the BCM?

If so will the BCM have any ill affects with the Manual ECU?

Cheers

Josh

I personally used the J3 Chip and the only functionality I lost was the power sensitive steering... ( Not worth worrying about IMO)

Well I'd just get a j3 chip straight up, I hear it just runs poorly etc. supposedly sends the computers into a bit of a f**k with nuetral and s**t, but i guess if just short term.

Climate control and all thats all done in the bem, only thing is ssps and if you still have the self leveling, I'm not sure how that works?

Ok update!

I started replacing the curtisy lights in the lane today

Image

I got 4 10mm white 5000 MCD LED's jaycar part no. ZD0220

Image

And 4 1k resistors

Image

I started by cutting the long legs of the LED's down to about 5mm long

Image

And the same for one side of the resistors

Image

Then using my helping hands i solderd the resistors to the LED's

Image

This is how they turned out

Image

then i cut the other side of the resistors even with the other pin

Image

Then i curled the ends up and tinned them

Image

Image

Image

The idea is to replace this type of globe

Image

Then its just a matter of pushing them in the socket and a bit of hot glue to hold it in place and BAM!!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

This shuld work fr the rest of the interior lights but i bought the last 4 LED's at jaycar when they get more in i will finnish the rest of them off.

Often it is the little things that make all the difference.

Thanks mate they light up well but still unsure if they will be bright enough to light up the car from the centre roof light maybe leave the 2 map lights if you need a brighter light for whenever lol

Hey everyone.

Well today i noticed something a miss in the lane.

Image

When i did the back lit door handle mod i decided to pull it right back, as it was already comming away on the edges.

I reglued it with my hot glue gun and it seemed to work realy well untill we had a 40 degree day yesterday.

So I thort reather than start another thread and go through countless search results, Ill post it on here and see if anyone reading this knows a better way to geglue it

Cheers

Josh

Location: Wattle Grove
NSW, Australia

I have seen a NF with full body kit (not xr though) he used a front to suit fairmont, side skirts from a wagon but had to cut and shut two rear bars to make the sides long enough, i looked at this car when buying my NF, but she was getting a bit sad imo for the bucks wanted, but the kit looked great!
GO THE FAIRLANES!

Anyways i was reffered to this site by another fordmods member http://www.dellowauto.com.au/main.html

For those of you who are not aware they manufacture and sell conversion kits for converting cable clutch to hydraulic clutch and bellhousings to adapt gear boxes to different make of car and lots of other great suff.

Some of you may know i have been planning a T5 conversion for my lane, And have been toying with the idea with intsalling a hydraulic clutch.

So I emailed them and asked if they sell a kit for converting to a hydraulic clutch on the EF Falcon.

I recived a email back from them and was dispointed in finding out that they do not, But they do however have a bellhousing available that allows you to bolt a slave cyilinder to it.

I sent them another email asking them what type of slave cyilinder will suit there bellhousing eg: XD V8?

Also asked if they would condsider selling a hydraulic kit for E Series falcons in the future, as i am sure that there would be a considerable
amount of people interested.

I have not recived a reply yet but when i do i will let you all know about it.

I also have the cash to buy a gear box and all the rest of the parts reqired for the conversion, Now all i need is the time to get to the wreckers and do some business.

I think I will be going with the cable setup for the time being as the car is a daily driver i dont want to start the hydraulic conversion on a week end and get stuck because something doesent go to plan.

Anyone with ideas for a solution with converting to hydraulic clutch are welcome to share.

Cheers

Josh
