My XA

I decided to make a new thread in the classic era falcon section rather than update the old one in the other section which is pretty old. In here i will keep everyone updated with pics of my car's restoration progress. As most of you's know i have restored just about everything to it already exept the paint/bodywork (left the most expensive thing for last) I just picked it from the suspension workshop lastnight where i got it lowered, reset leafs, king super low coils and ajustable koni's all round which improved it HEAPS in looks and handling. (will post pics)

Next week i will start striping it AGAIN for the baremetal respray then its off to the panelshop where it could take months to complete. The guys take digital pictures of every stage they do to the car which i will post up in here for all to see.

Re: My XA

Excellent... my coupe is going through the same right now, except mine will be finished in about 3 weeks to a month. Are you keeping it the original colour?
