Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

Nice I have one too. I wish it was a ghia and that good looking.
Is yours engineered and legal? How did you go about it and what did it cost? I have yet to look into legalities yet.

Thanks bud

Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

Nice work, Welcome to the FF!

Another question not raised by DansEdgli, how did you go with the calibration of the electronic speedo?

Scope out my '80 XD Fairmont Ghia 351 V8 in the gallery!

Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

Welcome to the forums, yet another X series driver. You'll get to know everyone pretty quickly.

Is that the MMM kit?

I've never seen a front bar like that before, and I take you havn't got the rear bar.

My speedo stayed accurate. I used a C10 trans and the speedo gear remianed the same. I ran through one of those speed display things and it was perfect.
