Xa Falcon help?

Soon to start a bit by bit resto, fronts up first.

Where does rust normally pop up in the front sections (windscreen forward)?
What are the best ways to inprove the suspension without needing an eng cert? (all I can think of is spending $2k on RRS stuff)
LPG, my cars a wagon, don't know how similar they are to sedans, but where would the best place be to put the LPG cylinder (pure gas, no petrol)?
Four link rear suspension, where can I find info on it?


Thanks!

Re: Xa Falcon help?

On the wagons I believe the usually cut the petrol tank in half, to make room for the gas tank. This (obviously) will give you reduced petrol capacity. They also put the spare tyre in the cargo area. You can see the spare in the back on even the latest LPG only models.

Thanks so far.

Not worried about the petrol tank, since thats going to be tossed... or stored.
Anyone got a few happy snaps of an XA with the LPG tank installed?

I had the good fortune to meet somone who I would class as an absolute Falcon nutter . With a shitload of falcons and parts, almost as if he bought shares in old cars or something. So it looks like I wont have too much trouble getting parts.
