My diff is already built and will be left the original length.

I'll still be able to fit 8 inch rims up back.
Fordy you're doing a great job :wnc: , and very different. You'll have no problems with fitting 8 inch rims, infact I my self have a XW and have fitted 8 inch rims with 10 inch tyres at rear with no problems. Eager to see her fully finnished. Keep up the work.

Yep they sure are harder to come by! What about the rubber moldings for engine bay and boot? The other day I saw a steering wheel for XY, XW or GT go for $640 alone!!!
And an Original XW radio [ Super fringe their called I believe] that went for $350 alone!!! in good nik though.
Luckily I still have my radio.

Galaxy I agree with you very new too last one, has a more robust feel to it. It’s a three-spoked style steering wheel. Whoever I found another one with some work needed on it.
Here are the descriptions; and it’s at $290.00 at the moment.

falcon xw - xygt steering wheel in need of full restoration .plenty of cracks on the back and centre pad . no horn rubber , the badge is xa .

Unless you know how to restore it would make a great investment, just informing that’s all.

Cheers
Nick.
