My XF Rebuild (unfinished)

As some of you may know I purchased 2 XF's last year, with the plan of rebuilding one, I wasnt going 2 post until it was finished but not much work has been happening on it lately, I have been busy, and I need opinions and inspiration!

http://www.wn.com.au/rcpark2/Ford/XFghia.htm
http://www.wn.com.au/rcpark2/Ford/XFfalcon.htm
http://www.wn.com.au/rcpark2/Ford/XFrebuild.htm

these are the 3 working links on the left, once you go into "the rebuild" there is one sub link on the right working.....

http://www.wn.com.au/rcpark2/Ford/XFpaint.htm

thats it so far, I do want opinions, but not the "whats that plastic crap?" cause its what I wanted (btw its the MMM kit, with the bumper that suits XFs, not the big rounded one)
All other info is on the site, I might be rebuilding the worked 6 or getting a 302, unsure as of yet!

Looks good so far. It might be easier staying with the Six (how worked is it, any Kw figures on it), on the other hand the 302 sounds nicer and would not be that hard to put in. Are you putting the fairmont dash in aswell or just putting the falcon one back in.

Always the way - if you had as many comments as views, you would end up with comments like this one.
