2)water is leakin from the radiator cap

3) can i fit 6X9's, the xe ghia rear headrests, anda gas tank in the same vechile?

4) ORANGE ESP STRIPES what do they use on the side? my rear bar has got one orange in it, and looks mad, wanna dothe whoel car, if its too much, i might just paint them

or 5) ghia moulds for the side, was there one at the back behined the rear wheel? ive seen a few with them, but TONNES without

1) Definitely not, you must still have a little oil left. If you don't fill it SOON, you will kill the box.

2) More info needed...is it doing it hot? where does the gauge sit? Could be that the cap needs replacing, or it could be due to overheating problems....

Dunno the rest, :) I don't know much about the older Falcons

$600? Not bad at all, looks pretty straight! Nice one mate!

You can put 6/9's in the rear headrests, if you hack them(the inside of the headrests) up, and they should clear the gas tank.Fairmont ghias didn't have muolds behind the whell rear wheel arches, but e.s.p.'s did. The last set of e.s.p. moulds I saw for sale went for $800 (new old stock), ford ran out of most of their moulds for xd-f's in the mid nintys, and none of the aftermarket ones are even close.

I sold my xe ghia a couple of months ago, it owed me $1100 with 12 months reg and rwc, and converted to a 351 (proper black blocked electronic ingnition motor), I got $4500 for it.

P.S. do you want to buy some rear ghia headrests? I've got a pair.
