1/2 way through color coding the EB side molding things. And XR6 ride height
Well Im half way there.
Just gotta do the bumpers, and fix the bits i couldnt be stuffed doing properly.
Was originally going to just remove the side moldings, and then paint the grey bits on the bumper, but the last owner used a silicon based glue to stick em on. And theres no way thats coming off.
heres the glue :(
Heres what ive done so far.
Not happy withit so im going to redo it, or get it done by someone i know.
And the 4.0l badge is coming off aswell
Originally just wanted to remove the moldings and get clear indicators
Here 1 side with moldings off
Car is also now sitting on EL Xr 6 springs and shocks.
Hard to tell, untill u line it up side bu side with stockos.
Will try get a good comparison shot soon.
Hers one of stock height, but its done at a different zoom, so looks nearly the same. also shows what the side molds used to look like
1st car EA Fairmont Ghia, extractors, exhaust
2nd EF GLi, 'custom' interior, extractors, exhuast
3rd EA Fairmont 5spd, low'd, extractors, exhuast, head

That glue should come off with a hairdryer and some kerosene/petrol mixed together. I had a bit of it behind my side mouldings on the EF, that mix, and heating up got it off very well, none left behind.
