My Ford EL Fairmont Ghia

This is my new car. I must say, truly beautiful to drive. Will post pics in 2 weeks of it with the new 18" AMG Quakes Chrome.

P.S. Next step after that, lowering. Not crazy stupid lowering, just nice llooking lowing and stiffen up the front end a bit. Any recommendation on cost and which brand and so forth.

Engine is standard and will remain that way for a year or so.

Nice. How much? I'm guessing it's a 6?

Get some clear side indicators and remove the dust covers on the wheels http://www.fordforums.com/showthread...759#post438759

Hood emblem goes well too... but a very nice car !

Re: My Ford EL Fairmont Ghia

very nice indeed. Im interested in doing the painting of the calipers as im sure they will look terrible with a full polished set of 18"s in front of it. what sort of paint are we talking about exactly? i'd probably go same colours black front bit with silver calipers

Thanks! The paint used is mentioned in that thread. I purchased it from supercheap. Very cheap and impressive mod.

Thanks man (if you were referring to me), yeah my girlfriend gets a little jealous sometimes! Sorry josh.c, I posted to give you some ideas, I didn't mean to hijack your thread! Have you already taken the pin-stripes off mate? I also decided to ditch the mudflaps, looks cleaner without them and doesn't scrape and scratch paintwork when the car is lowered.
