The XR is on its way. Went through paint - now in final assy.

I CAN'T WAIT (oooohhhhhyeeeaaahhhhh!!!!!)

One snag though - looks like due to my little plan I'm up for freight from Melb to Syd - bugger!

Ummm - not saying anything! Just sorted the freight - pays to know people!!! (he, he, he) Toll-Finemore are such a great company!

BTW; if anyone ever needs to ship a car, Toll-Finemore are the guys. They have all the best transport equipment and staff for Ford and Holden. I have always used them and received cars on time and damage free.

What have I mentioned? I will tell all when the car is delivered.

Similarly Jaytn, the photos are not available until after delivery of the car. The dealer must notify Ford that the car is delivered and they are then emailed to the customer. Until then, patience! I will post them in the member rides area when I get them.

If you ordered the XR through City Ford why are you paying freight for it? Obviously you've sent it to Herrods or somewhere to have something neat done (your little plan) or why would you be paying for freight yourself?
If you're having something done, why hide it from us? It's not like where gunna hijack the bloody truck as it comes up the highway. You've got our interest now so what's the goss?? If it's a good option we'd like to know about it so some of us can investigate it a bit further, perhaps for our own cars. :rolleyes:

I want to leave it until after I've decided 100%. Just save frotting around that's all. I didn't want to say I'm going to do one thing and then change it all later (you know - I'm gonna do this! And then the story changes ten times :rolleyes: :eek: ).

Gotta book more plane tickets to go see the beast at Tickford (he, he, he)! Too impatient to wait for it to get up here!
