#777545 whats going on

Posted by Outback Jack on 19 November 2014 - 07:05 AM

Throw away societies don't need old cars Dave,

and F#@K facebook, when was the last time you saw ya friends from there in the flesh at ya house drinking a beer? Unless ya knew them BEFORE facebook.

Facebook is a cop out, it's a BIG look at me! Look what I'm doing, I am sooooo great, look how many people like me and how many likes I got for my selfy.

It has destroyed everything face to face.

It's for people who can't be bothered with a REAL friendship, or needy pricks who need to have every bloody mundane piece of shit they do celebrated.

 

Unfortunately older cars don't get built in cyberspace- they exist in the real world....., it takes ticker and blood and sweat, skinning ya knuckles, getting dirty, learning about the vehicle and what it can and can't do, and taking some pride in what you have.

Most people can't be arsed.

New is flashy and easy.

 

Yeah I could save a heap of money driving a new Hyundai getz or some shit , but it's a piece of shit, not comfortable and has no style.

Maybe it's up to us to attract more young fellas back to cars that are REAL cars, ones that YOU have to actually drive.

I dont believe in drivers Aids, I think it should be you and the simple mechanics of the car.

Drivers aids is what you should get for saying how good a driver you are when ya car has sooo many electronic goodies my duck could drive it.

 

Jack.




#485868 Rep demystified.

Posted by SatansReverence on 18 June 2010 - 06:26 PM

Hello xFalcon.

The following is a sort of quick explination of the reputation system.

First of all, Rep (or reputation) is a sort of reward system for good and bad posts on these forums. Good rep is generally for helpful posts and some very funny ones and bad rep is pretty much the opposite.

Now, to give rep to a fellow forum member click on the six pointed star at the bottem left of their post.

Posted Image

When clicked, there may be a slight pause until a little pop up appears.

Posted Image

From here, you can give good (I approve) or bad (I disapprove) rep and leave a little note on the reputation.

Now, a little FaQ on rep.

Q: When can I start giving rep
A: You must have 50 posts before you can start giving people rep

Q: How much rep can I give?
A: In a 24-hour period, you can give 4 different people reputation.

Q: How do I find out how much rep I have?
A: Go here and scroll down to the bottem.

Q: How much rep to get the little green boxs?
A: From scratch (0 points) to your first box is 100 points and each consecutive box is a further 100 rep points.

Q: What is "rep power"?
A: It is how much your reputation is worth. Basically, if someone with rep power of 50 gives you good rep, you will get 50 rep points and vice versa.

Q: Where can I find my "rep power"
A: Click here and look at your mini user CP slide. (i.e the little box with your name and avatar)

Any further questions, just ask :hy:

p.s Glenn, hope you don't mind I used one of your posts for the rep box picture. If you want, I can change it to another.

p.p.s If something isn't quite right, let me know and I can update it.

p.p.p.s Totally forgot about the sticky but this kinda goes mroe indepth on the subject.


#16158 REPUTATION (PLEASE READ)

Posted by robbie on 11 May 2007 - 12:41 PM

ok guys, we have enabled the reputation system in vBull.

if you have a look to the right of this post, right under my post count you will see a grey OR green box, this is the reputation level.

you can give GOOD reputation if you beleive someone has posted something up thats very useful to you, or on the flip side you could give NEGATIVE reputation for someone thats being a total asshat.

EDIT - Here is a new write up by SatansReverence:

#569680 xd head rest removal

Posted by XE_Spack on 25 January 2011 - 06:41 PM

ok got some pics

at the bottom of the seat back there is a little slit with 4 or 5 hog rings that hold the seat cover together at the bottom

i have circled them in red
Posted Image

cut them with a good pair of side cutters but be careful not to nick the seat vinyl

when they have been cut out the seat materiel can be separated and you will have an opening to put your hand up the seat back

hog ring that i cut out and have put back together on the bench to show what they are
Posted Image

and the opening
Posted Image

now to show you what your looking at inside the seat back i have put a light in there and taken a photo showing inside, see the 2 white plastic clips up in there, these are the plastic holders that keep the head rest from simply being pulled up and out
Posted Image

this is the clip that retains the head rest on a seat i had removed earlier
Posted Image

to release the locking mechanism simply lift the tab as the arrow shows
Posted Image

so what i did was hold one clip up and pull on that side then i did the same on the other and swapped between the 2 while pulling the same side and eventually you will walk the head rest out once the head rest is about 10mm off the seat then just pull from the center of the head rest and it will come off

here is a notch in the head rest leg,
Posted Image

i hope this heaps as it took me a little while to work out how the clips worked but once you have done one its piss easy.

i have just pulled my seats apart to clean them and re do the foam on the drivers side

this is how my interior looks at the moment
Posted Image

and my rear seat covers after a good wash,
Posted Image

the soapy water i soaked my covers in was black after i had them in there for about 24 hours, pretty gross as these were quite clean looking to the eye.

i will do a write up of my interior cleaning as soon as i am done and have some time


#771310 the future of xfalcon

Posted by nstg8a on 21 February 2014 - 09:06 AM

No doubt everyone has seen the thread showing xfalcon is again for sale.
Its unfortunate we have to go through this again but we do

I can not and will not presume to speak for the other ex admin but I do not want to see xfalcon lost.

Myself and the othet admins were removed with no notice or explanation, emails and phonecalls to the owner have been fruitless.
Obviously best case scenario is one of us members buys it and keeps it running.

I would just like to ask for everyones patience, until this ownership headache is sorted once abd for all, and see which direction we as the members wish to head in.
Im aware there is a large group that are also members of ozfalcon, myself included.
It has never been an issue to be members of both and hopefully never will.

Thanks
James nstg8a/defective




#442410 Speedo adjustment

Posted by xdra10 on 08 March 2010 - 08:12 PM

The last couple of times I have driven my XD I have had a GPS unit in the cabin with me so I could compare speeds between my speedo and the GPS.
I found my speed to be out by around 20kph at 100kph.
I have tried a few different gears on the sender and now have the biggest one available.
I remembered reading somewhere that there is a small screw on the back of the speedo that allows around 40kph of adjustment so yesterday I had a look for that screw and had a play with it.

This is where you will find the screw.
Posted Image

Using a jewelers screw driver turn it anticlockwise to increase speed and clockwise to decrease speed. The screw only has about 3/4 of a turn from stop to stop and only needs a small adjustment to make a big difference.
Posted Image

My speedo is now 100% correct with the GPS unit.
Hopes this help a few people get their speedo correct
Cheers Brad


#777232 RIP Sam Afford

Posted by FordFun on 24 October 2014 - 02:32 PM

Well, we have just read Sam's thread too, what a young fella!  The work he did on his ute was beyond his years.  You could hear the pleasure and joy he was getting from it in everyone of his posts.  Perhaps we can all take something from Sam's project:  and that is to keep working on our projects with passion and commitment, keeping working at it because the rewards of self-pride are so great at the end.  We hope that Sam's family can get through this difficult time and know that Sam's fellow xFalcon members hold a lot of respect for such a talented young man.

 

RIP Sam

 

Regards

Mark & Lynette
