Thanks klr250
I still have the outer rail stiffeners to make up and i may do it through the week? im keeping all the new steel out of the
engine bay/weather just to keep the rust at bay for now ...... my plan is knock the mill scale off it and paint it all with cold galvanizing weld through primer . hmmmmm that's the plan any how .

Yep there stiffeners and covers . I guess the engine bay looks a bit ruff but once the sand blaster gets in there it will clean and remove the rust and paint ready for a fresh new primer....

LOL thanks m8 one day I will finish my XE and may even come down instead.... I only have a small unit in town and the car is 135k round trip away 40min each way so that makes progress slow but I've never been keener ......

all the comments and interest keep ya motivated also

OK the outer rail stuff done now . it all needs a bit of finishing off but I need double check the wheel base before I get to cutting the inner guards

hey there...

what strikes me as amazing is the engineering which is going into this...


but then there is a flip side...



"looks" like a back yard build considering where its getting done... (back yard, no workshop, bricks as chassis stands etc)


top job mate, keep up the good work

Yes this has been pointed out before and im sure your not the last to keep the "backyard build stigma going"
thanks for your positive comments also

if you look at it like this.....................the racq or ract "here" DO all there work on the side of the road..................

Mate i would get rid of those cinder blocks fast i seen bad shit happen with them and my dads mate met an untimely death with those earlier this year he was changing break pads and the thing came of the blocks straight onto his head.


buggah me I don't want the car coming down on me and i will change those cinder blocks ....... I originally placed them on there side but my uncle told me a similar story and made me put em up right.

Just read through the previous two threads and mate, this project is awesome, great work!

do sepearate thread if you wish, or just keep it all in here its up to you bud, just take plenty of pics :hy:
Are you sure your one half short? xflow thrust bearings are only one half too, the half with the sides takes the end float of the crank and fits the block and the bottom half is the same as the rest and fits the cap.

um no im not 100% sure but the book I've got in front of me says there is 4 halves but with no pics, the brg box pic on the net shows 3 and the box only had 2 in there and the block and cap look as though there is meant to be 4 but I must admit it was a half ass look. any how I have galleries to tap threads in and rings to file (shit of a job without ring file) threads to chase clean before another hot wash, before I get to installing the crank and more than that too im sure.

the engine build thread

http://www.xfalcon.c...0619#post620619

Im heading off the car tomorrow so some more updates soon

OK a bit more done I've capped the bottom of both rails to fill the holes and add strength to the mounting areas of the cross members ..... I also got the crush tube in and welded for the cross member bolts .... the ends of the inner rails are finished off and the inner guard templates are set up and inner guards marked off them for cutting
