biggrin Finally, Its Back

Well after 3 months my car is back and sporting a fresh coat of paint. I'm now poor because of it, but the wait was worth it.

Next: Rims, lower the tail, retrim front seats and then no more money to be spent..... for the rest of the year :)

See for yourself:

Looks good, did you prefer the XC GS bonnet or couldn't you find a XB one?

Re: Finally, Its Back

Couldn't find a XB bonnet in time. I didn't realise there was a difference until later, would have preferred an XB item so it all matched and had bonnet lockdowns, but doesn't matter now. You'd have to know what you were taliking about to pick it

That's cool, some people prefer not to have the one's with the lock down pins, usually find them annoying such as getting jammed and can't open the bonnet.

Re: Finally, Its Back

I wanted a different colour but the costs and time were getting out of hand and i needed the car back. The pictures don't really do it justice, and it was taken in the shade.
But as for the paint job and body, its damn near perfect and the job Big Trev and the lads at Grand Prix Smash in St Marys have done is beyond reproach.

Now once i get the new wheels, it'll look complete, jellybeans just don't cut it.

My XB (76 model) came factory with the GS bonnet and no bonnet lock downs. It also had the XC type 9' diff, brake booster, XC front doors, XC radiator (wide type), and the XC master cylinder.
I purchased the car off the original owner with the order papers.

So they do come with XC parts sometimes.
There are also two XB's made that have the XC dash (verified by ford)
