My XC GXL Sedan

1) considering a restoration of my XC, its currently Red exterior with full black interior, just curious of what sort of color schemes other falcon owners have gone with and how it looks, and how you did it.

2) also i am going to convert the current seats (SAAS) to electric bases from an 85 LTD, as well as converting to electric windows from the same donor car. central locking will also be fitted.

3) Wiring loom. can i get replacement wiring looms for a car as old as mine? if so how much and from who?

Re: My XC GXL Sedan

Dont rush in on fitting late model power windows as they may not fit xc doors.

I may be able to help with the full set up including switches & harness from a roller style LTD in a few weeks if you are intrested.

Regard`s James.

Just hold on we may be able to an exchange as the power units in my ZL are about to sh*t themselves two are out of action and it`s a bitch in car parks getting the little ticket.

Let me know if that works for you & how a big a rush you are in.

Regard`s James.

OK : you have an xc falcon & want to fit power windows.
: you have power windows out of 1985 ltd (not xc/harder to fit)

: i have a 1987 fairlane that needs new power window winders/motors your ltd ones will fit my fairlane.
I am stripping out a 1978 ford ltd & it has power windows that will fit your xc.

Mabey we can swap with some loose change.

has the head cleared you because mine was a little cloudy when i sent last post.

Regard`s James
