Well done....good to see another X being ressurected.

As for the block colour, I guess you'll be well aquainted with the best Degreasers available ;)

Beautiful colour, and the body work looks schmick.

As for the wheels, what about B45's or the like?

Still deciding buddy. Leaning towards BA XR 17's or Convo pros, the xr wheels are the cheaper option but im just gonna wait and see till its all finished to make a decision.

Any more suggestions are welcome too guys and gals.

(and im not putting globes or 5 slots, galaxy :AAHHH: )
Convo's are the toughest looking mags on a ford
i wanna throw a set on my xt

Im actually going to find a set of those GS hubcaps to put on her until i get my rims i reckon they look good when theyre all polished up and the car is sitting on its ass.
And when you decide on another type of rim after the GS cap's, would you sell the GS cap's to me,PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Hey Fordy,
Have you decided on what car your getting yet? I drove a BA XR8 ute the other night, scared the hell out of me! Its got so much power, and its right there! Ive been im my mates XR6T sedan, and its got power, but you have to wait for it. The ute was unbeliveable!

I got back to the house, and told mum how quick it got to 100, and she just looked at me and said "it gets to 160 pretty quick too!"

Dale.

Yeah buddy i have decided and you'll find out in a few weeks, im not saying anything till keys are in my hands. And yes the xr8 utes are prettty quick but after driving so many hot xw's and xy's the ute doesnt feel as quick, the rush the old v8's give you is nothing compared to the new ones, to me nothing beats the rough idle and roar of an old 351.
