Worth a look...

Here are the pictures of my EF series II Falcon...



Sitting on the recently released AU2 Tickford wheels with the EF offset (obviously), the car has recently been lowered 2 inches, although you only see roughly 1 1/2 inch lower, as the springs will settle and sag a furthur half inch over the next half a year (something some people forget when they get their car lowered and find it riding on the bump stops in a few months).



The car seems to attract alot of attention wherever it goes, I frequently have total strangers come up to me and ask all about it, it's great walking back to your car in a parking lot and seeing people taking a second look at it as they go by. I tried to keep the style similar to the show car Ford did with the EL, the Predator. Simple, lowered, clean, smooth lines with large wheels.



The stereo has been modified, of course, with Sony and Kenwood gear, and an aftermarket performance exhaust and filter. Window tinting will be the next step in the evolution.

Let me know what you think, I'd love some feedback.
(I hope I correctly inserted the links to the pictures, if not, I apologise!)
Enjoy.

Very classy EF. You've obviously put a lot of thought and effort into it, which I admire... and now you've got me wondering about those same wheels for myself... :s5

Some different pictures of the EF...





I'm thinking that exhaust will have to go pretty soon, to be replaced by a 2 1/2inch system.... also, if anyone knows, did any of the EF/EL series come out with white indicators on the front guards? and if not, does anyone make them?

If anyone knows, I'd like to find out to replace the only orange lights on the car

Cheers...

nice car man!
I was looking at those rims for my car too, but was struggling to find them in the right offset.
I bet they would be easy to clean too - which was top of my list when I got mine!

you cant get those trangular shaped lenses in clear... you'll have to get the fairlane part that holds the oval clear lense in it! it cost me a bit - but looks unreal!

heres a pic of my car with the clear lenses.

You know what u should do Zantetsuken

Buy some tint spray and spray your side orange indicators.. ive seen it done once.. it stood out HEAPS (for me anyways) and it looks really good!

Mmm yeah, wouldn't be a bad idea.... I have seen it on another EF Falcon, and it didnt look bad at all... not a bad thought actually... especially when the windows get tinted as dark as I can get them legally.

Might be my only option if I cant get my hands on clear indicator lenses - I'll look into Fairlane part though, but i'll have to see if the look suits the car. I'll check out your car, chubbz! (tho i have already seen it, I didnt notice the indicators..)

Thanks for the comments, and especially the ideas!
Cheers
