Re: looking to modify my ED

Lowering - check Ebay for springs! New from Autobarn/equivalent places should set you back around $300+, but on Ebay you can get them for as little as $100. Make sure you get some (new) shocks that match your new springs.

17" BA XR copies - where are you based? I've heard that The Tyre Factory in Dandenong (if you're Melbourne based) sells a lot of types of copies, so you might get lucky there. Price? I dunno, but getting the rims shod in rubber is pretty cheap these days.

Full bare metal respray - $$$ = at least four figures.

Full leather trim - reupholstering would set you back a couple of thousand. Full leather seats (front & back, to suit EA-ED Fords) could be sourced from Ebay for several hundred dollars. Most likely from an LTD or Ghia.

Yep, cars aren't cheap! Let us know what you end up doing mate I'm going to get mine resprayed sometime, as the roof & bonnet are crap, but I'm sticking with black so it'll be a "doors closed" respray. This will probably set me back $500-$800 depending on where I go. Something I gotta look into.

My springs (superlows) cost me $150, I bought them off a fellow forum (.au) member & fitted them with a mate. I used my standard shocks & they're stuffed now lol

Re: looking to modify my ED

well its going to be alot cheaper than 15 to 20 grand
father has mates in all areas of car modification as he works in the business so i will be getting all materials at cost price and cheaper labour

been told can get my car repsrayed for around 1500 (decided on phantom purple) if i supply the paint
sourcing out some fairmont interior to get retrimmed in grey leather with purple edges- around the $2000 mark
springs and shocks - free
BA XR copies - around $1500 with tyres im told
Boot install will be looking at a budget around $5000...everything at cost price!!

I just copped a $2400 bill for doing the upholstry in my 1968 Jag , through a mate ( was worth at least 4k)
Lowering , parts worth $500 to 1k plus labour dependant on if you do work and how good a suspension / shocks package
as for the respray severl k at least unless you do a lot of prep your self as dependant on paint type can be the main factor as you do pay for prep
Hurts dont it ?

how much do you think paint costs. let alone sandpaper, sanding disc etc. your in alot of luck if your body is straight with no rust 1500 to put paint on thats fine but what does that mean. just to paint the car. dont get me wrong the person painting is a high skill task. but the real qaulity of the job comes down to who panelbeated and repaired it/prepared it. in most good panelshops the painter is known as the wingy bitch as he wont paint a bodgy repaired car/panel as its his fault for doing so.
just as a guide i am doing a full resto and i have spent close to 1 thousand on sandpaper,stripper and preparing items so far and am only half way there and i buy wholesale. it comes down to the sort of job you want or will be happy with.
i am not trying to offend you but the hidden costs show up all along the way when you do a car. even with the best of freinds
