The paint isnt that good right now but is going to be the very last thing done i think. There is only 2 places where rust is forming though.

The wheels are only replicas, they are made to suit pre au cars so no spacers were needed.

I will have pics of the enigne bay up soon although there isnt much to see, its pretty dirty. Its a carby model with a holley 465 and chrome air filter on top of it.

Its not stock. Its a manual 4.1litre. Engine wise it has exhaust and extractors, redline intake manifold and holley 465 carby, COME racing did a stage 3 headjob on it and it has a COME cam as well. It goes pretty hard. Ive beaten a VT 6 cylinder, a lot of VL's VN and VP's and even a 5 litre VL (spoke to the guy afterwards) The other day i beat a little turbo swift as well. Havent raced anything else though. Its easily faster than my old ED rip.
My engine is started to smell and get a little slower so it will be off the road in about a months time.
When its in the shed im chucking in a stock engine and converting it to wolf 3d and hopefully it will turbocharged by my birthday in november.

It has a decent stereo in it but that is all getting thrown into my mini and getting upgraded. Today i bought a pair of Focal utopia splits and the plan is to deck the boot out properly with 2 kicker 10 inch L7 solobarics and a cadence monoblock. This will be done before the car comes off the road.

Thats all i can think of for now.
Dan

Re: Here is my XF at last!

Good job, Dan.

I personally think that the pin stripping should go, makes the car look heaps smoother in my opinion.
I've still got the Kicker 12" subs, amp and capacitor, plus all the false walls and carpet, if you want them, PM or email me (cliff.pfander@siemens.com) and we can sort something out!
Anyway, can't wait to see it with the snail and injection, should be awesome!
Cliff

Thanks guys.
I got the wheels for $1500 with tyres from tyre factory direct.

Not sure about changing the colour. I like the sleeper appeal. I need to get the small amounts of rust looked at before it gets worse. The drivers side front quarter doesnt sit right so i need to get that looked as well. Probably been smashed. I might keep it yellow and add a pearl. Who knows? I probably wont even touch the paint.

SHHMIK- My current subs are very similar to the ones your selling so im really looking at getting 2 solobarics. 600wrms each!! and only 10inches. Thanks for the offer tho.

Cheers
Dan
