Thanks for the kind remarks. Sorry about posting the photo's that way I have been having trouble getting them onto boards.
I am right handed and no it is second nature to us. In fact it is widely believed that the strongest arm be the car control arm during gear changes. I don't think it makes much difference but we don't have a choice.
If you guys want I have more pictures that you might like especially if you are into ute's.
... and here's the preceeding model (Dec-97 build)...
Aah, there's my baby! I reckon these would sell pretty well over there.. let's see.. going on current exchange rate, the blue AU above would go for about $26,000US!!!! Eek! I'm surprised nobody has started importing and converting them... would make for a very sweet and very unique ride over there, not to mention all the good aftermarket bits for the Windsor to get bulk hp!
Yes the steering wheel does look great and it feels even better. Since those shots it has also picked up a Momo shifter knob.
The next day the dealer damaged some of the paint work so it is back in the shop.
Over the next month it will pick up engine mods that should start to see the 300kw mark(400hp)
Aussie falcon About the front of the car. I actually don't have a picture of the car with that front on it. I borrowed a digital to take those shots and for some reason the front shot didn't come out. I hope to get a scanner soon and will post a photo then.
The wheels cost about $1350. Centre caps with the tickford logo cost about $50 each. I took the tyres of my other wheels so I had no cost for this but I have priced replacements at about $360 a tyre. That is a Jap import so you could do better there.
If I was not so far away I would offer you my series 1 or series 2 wheels as I think I will move to 18" when the tyres need replacing.
The steering wheel was an option from the factory and is made by MOMO. Buying it withthe car new cost about $650 Aus and buying it aftermarket you could double that cost.
