Off memory, coupes and utes have different winscreens to sedans and wagons.
Two tyres? well second hand RW ones, about $50 ea..
Diff price will differ (no pun) from $450 up. Disks used to cost more but ppl are finding drums better, lasting longer, etc.

Ive discovered under the drivers side front guard there is a big wiring loom and two small black boxes.
One has the word 'Ingram' on it and also D+ and DF. Part no. 831250. 12V. Thats all it says on it. It has two wires in an L shape going in the bottom, 1 blue with white stripe and one black with yellow stripe.
Other box is slighltly bigger and has 'Product' Stock no. LR112. 12V on it
Has two wires on prongs going into the top and three coming out of the bottom. Bottom three prongs are marked S, B, S. S has a green wire and the B and other S has Red wires.
The RWC inspector said i have to move all this wiring and stuff into the engine bay as the tyre almost scrapes it when its at full left turn lock.
Does anyone know what all this stuff is? Did xb have wiring from the factory under there or has one of the previous owners moved it all to neaten up the engine bay?
It comes from the other side of the fire wall directly into the under side of the gurard and is all in a big loom that looks like it is hasnt been touched since factory. The loom splits into 2 main parts of which some go into the second black box and then back into the loom. Soom look like they go to the headlights somewhere and some also go back through another hole into the engine bay and go to the starter or somehitng.
So yeah what are the black box things?
Onto another completely different topic, The car doesnt have a jack or anything. I noticed in the owners book it shows a diagram of the jack that came with it that looks like it hooks under the front or rear bumper to lift the car. Can i use a regular jack from an XE or somehitng that is the style that goes under the bottom edge of the car under the doors etc? Or will that damage the car?
The original jacks are damn dangerous have a habit of just colapsing, as long as you can find a safe place to jack the car that is solid, and the car wont slip off the jack then no probs.
The black boxes sound like relays, I guess someone stuck them there to keep the cool or some bright idea at the time, just take the wires of them one at a time and test the lights and the ignition will tell for sure if you are right, otherwise have some hold there hand against one of them at a time, you should feel the relay(s) inside switch when the appropite device ie headlights are activated.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
As for the front windscree, I vaguely recall it being shared with the wagon of all things, it has a different sweep back. Could be wrong though as the coupe, pano and ute all share the same side doors, sedan i'm fairly sure is different to coupe though.
