#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

#242821 VIC All Ford Day Photos & Friday the 13th Cruise

Posted by 'Nova on 19 February 2009 - 08:04 PM

OK! Well Elise and I only got back about 11 am this morning and after taking Elise home I've basically been in front of the computer working hard to bring you all the following. I really hope they don't disappoint! 90% of these are un-touched photos but some had to be as it seems my camera and lenses are in need of a good clean on the inside. (or replacing :()

None of the photos have been watermarked because
  • A) I was on holiday, therefore not working :D! and
  • B) If you see something you like I'm asking for reputation to be paid/added! (hey hey, credit paid where credit due! yeah? :P)
The photos at the show were taken of cars that really stood out in my mind as awesome examples! Please don't be upset if you don't see your car here, that doesn't mean i didn't enjoy it, it just means that i was pretty damn busy on the day meeting people, chatting, catching up with and looking at all the wicked cars there!

We both had a totally awesome time and even if Elise doesn't want to venture over with me next year I'll be coming over for sure. I'm kinda hoping that Ronny, Mr & Mrs Squire, Myself and Elise set an example to maybe get some more people traveling interstate to participate in the event next year! (or maybe an XFalcon Nationals :lol:)

Massive Thanks To Christo, Niki and Taylor for making us feel so welcome! Also to Nathan, Ged and Mariah for organising the pool (pity about the music) To Brett and Adam for giving us a lift to pool and to Jezza for giving us a lift back to our hotel! Also to everyone else who made the effort to come to the Friday night cruise!

It was a pleasure to meet everyone we did and to catch up with the people I knew!


#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

#772050 G'Day from the New Owners

Posted by xFalcon Admin on 21 March 2014 - 12:45 PM

Well, here we are...  You guys are full of questions and keen to suss us out.  And so you should be!  We see that you are dead passionate about your forum and only want to see it grow bigger and better, well that is our intention too.

 

Are we Aussie?  Yes

 

Are we website investors?  Yes

 

Are we car enthusiasts?  You bet we are!   Holdens!    No, no only joking, we are stirring you!

 

Firstly, it has taken a while for us to introduce ourselves, because we needed to get all the formalities done with the previous owner and change over accounts, hosting and so on.  We could see you wanting us to say hello earlier, but until all that was done, we had to wait.  We would also like to publicly thank the previous owner for being a pleasure to work with. 

 

We are a husband and wife team and we own a few websites.  We are passionate about websites, building them, growing them, and making them a relevant and valuable source of information for people.  We believe the future is great for xFalcon and together (you and us) we can provide a fantastic resource for Aussie Falcon fans.

 

We are also passionate about something else.  Fords,  Old cars.  Hotted up cars.  Classic cars.  Fast cars.  Customs.  If someone loves their car, they are passionate about it, then we love it too.  We love the car enthusiast community.  There are thousands of people around Australia who love their car, who spend a lot of time and money on their car and they should be supported and celebrated. 

 

We had a XF Falcon that unfortunately was stolen and never recovered.  It broke our hearts, but now that we own xFalcon, this might be our 'healing' and may consider getting back in to the x-series market again one day.  In the mean time we have something else we love....a 1932 Ford Tudor that we built from scratch.

 

We already own a leading Hot Rodding website www.hotrodsaustralia.com that we are really proud of.  We attend car shows locally, around the state and interstate, so we look forward to seeing you one day and having a chat about your pride and joy.  We also look forward to settling in as the new owners of xFalcon and having a discussion with you about its future.  Our plan is to: have the best Falcon forum that people return to time and time again and; to create an income from xFalcon and with some of that coin, yes we will put it back in to the site for the benefit of the forum community.

 

In the meantime, let's all get revved up and strapped in for a smoking hot journey.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you...

 

Go xFalcon

Regards

Mark & Lynette




#765908 300 hp 250crossflow

Posted by Wes on 24 September 2013 - 10:08 AM

Na is a waste of time. The crossflow turbo is also a waste of time and money. Get a 4 litre, turbo that and it will be much more capable of the power with ease, without stressing the engine and relatively cheaply if you want to go down the path most people on here go, ie cheap parts and attempting to do most things themselves.

 

It's not the path I advocate as it has been shown, almost all of them end up broken or neglected and sold for parts.

 

You'll need more than 5-6k even if doing it on the cheap.

 

Advice no matter how good you are with the spanners is get someone professional to tune it.

 

If you're clever with wiring and fabrication then go a barra turbo from a wreck. Cheapest and most reliable way. The crossflow is just not the engine you want to be turboing unless you got $ up your sleeve. You'll hate your life, leaks, blown motors, heat, unreliability constantly fixing things, constantly let down. The OHC 4 litre is a much more sensible and stable platform and they go straight in.

#724922 fast flashing indicator problem

Posted by smally351 on 13 August 2012 - 01:41 AM

I assume your XF had the factory rectangular 7 pin connector?

These had a spring loaded flap with 2 metal tabs that contacted the indicator pins when closed. These pins had resistor wires connected to them that applied the same load to each indicator circuit as a globe when the flap was shut. The flasher unit was designed to flash at the correct rate with this load on it, either from the trailer globes or the resistor wires. If you held the flap open with nothing connected to the plug the indiators would flash fast due to the lower resistance. All of this was done to keep the indiators flashing at the same rate with or without a trailer connected. With me so far?

There are 2 ways to fix your problem. Either fit a flasher unit out of a car without a factory tow pack (black instead of blue from memory) or do a simple modification to your wiring. All that is required here is to join the resistor wires (thin blackwires) to the indicator wires (1 to left and 1 to right). I have only ever done this at the trailer plug when the tabs have corroded out, but cannot see why it couldn't be done at the connector inside the boot.

Hope this all makes sense!


#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
