This is my first car! It has a warm 192, 4-speed, Weber, Nitrous Oxide (Madder Nitrous Australia - I'm not kiddin'!) HR Front end, 14 by 7 spitfires, 3 inch exhaust, Nissan EXA buckets, etc.




The colour is peal white/custom dark blue metallic. Originally, it was grecian white/olinda green.
 
Cheers.

ditto with what everyone else said. if you want the car low you should think about dropped spindles, especially if you want the front to be in the weeds with 14" wheels. (see my response to your hubcaps question first though!! Grin)

i am also running an ek steering wheel, but you'll have to run an ek column as well, unless you want the wheel poking you in the face as you drive along..  the ek column is a lot shorter than the fc one, to compensate for the deeper dish on the ek wheel.

here's a shot of my wheel...




you've found the best site on the web!

Thanks twitch,

She's been a bit neglected over the last few months. School and work seem to have taken over! I still see that ray of light whenever I start her up...Nothing comes close.

Updates so far... not a lot, just a lot of interior work. looks pretty good.

I'll post some progress photos soon.

Now I'm looking for a nice set of wheels. Billets look the go, but I'm afraid I just can't make myself purchase wheels which are worth more than the car...

Don't suppose anyone has a set of Dragway billets or other wheels they would like to part with?

Cheers,

Josh

Hi Josh.
I can get a set of the 5 spoke Dragways with 95% tread Bridgstone Eagers for about $950. They look very nice, but the fella has a set of Neal wheels he is using instead. Let me know if interested.

Hi guys. Here are some photos of my new interior.  

The process is long and slow...  

The day was a little overcast, so hopefully they aren't too dark.

Here are some of the front, with my chrome glovebox and surrounds. The dice I "borrowed" from my dad's car.  Grin  

Hope you like it!

pain, headaches, and perseverance.  Roll Eyes Tongue Roll Eyes - all worth it in the end Wink



Cheers,

Josh.

Hi guys.

Thanks for the praise!

COL58FE - I'm glad my FC was influential to a certain degree. Be warned though...when you are cruising and there is the slightest hint of sun...YOU NEED TO WEAR SUNNIES  Cool but I suppose the dice sort of block it out. looks cool though.

I'll post some photos of my engine bay next. Beware though. it's more go than show, and there is a hint of F**d in there.

Cheers, Josh

Too right kalfe!

It's great, but it sucks too!

I bought another little car to drive around in, so as to keep the FC for weekends, and you get this: 2 insurances, 2 regos, 2 mechanical bills, tyres, oil, etc, etc, etc.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

it's a vicious cycle!
