  1. How did you get to 70%??
  2. We have a trials video section, bmx videos, why not a MTB video topic? I'll begin...
  3. f**k that Jenny used to work in a dental practice and had a similar issue once, the stuff they found in there was awful. Bags of drugs and needles galore!
  4. Yeah some kits, mainly the dearer end are nearly all bolt on minus welding the brackets to your axle. I was watching a Heidts promo vid a few days ago where they just bolted in a fully independent rear end to a 67 Mustang. Admittedly some sections bolted to the chassis where they leaf shackles had come from but there was no spreader plates on the additional holes or extra reinforcing. Seemed proper sketchy to me! I'd prefer a weld in setup to be honest, just seems more logical and less to worry about!
  5. It's funny, I was all set for selling this fairlane and making a tidy profit last Autumn now the issues are sorted. Since then I've realised to replace it with something as 'nice' would cost me far more then I'd get for it, it's a ridiculously solid car, I love the fact it's a 4door and it's had all the big bills paid for such as engine rebuild and trans rebuild. Now it's just a case of making it right and proper.
  6. Talking to the company that are building my new front beam and they also make 4 link rear ends! Added one to the order to save me on shipping for the future. Can't wait now!
  7. Didn't dissapoint. Not as good as the first 2 but still a good comedy.
  8. Hoping to 4 link the back end too in winter and go for a Ford 9inch rear axle if I can find one for the right money but I'm not too fussed if I don't get hold of one, the stock back axle/diff is good for around 450bhp providing your not running Mickey Thompson's and hitting 5k clutch drops. I just want to build a car that'll be capable of taking some reliable power in the future. A nicely built 289 and supercharger setup or something for mild power but not unusable.
  9. Just ordered a new front beam for the Fairlane compromising of... 4pot 11"vented discs, rack and pinion steering, new hubs with 2" lowered spindles, tubular top an bottom control arms, proper air bag perches and shocks. Gotta wait around 8 weeks for the batch to build up then shipping from the states but it'll be worth the wait! Gonna try and buy Granada rear discs and calipers so I can swap them all over at once. Tempted to use a wilwood pedal box so then I can fit a clutch pedal at the same time for the manual conversion that'll be coming next winter!
  10. Slided in2 ur DMs
  11. 1.56 is one of the most could'a gone either way unlucky guys ever. Styling that out would've felt heroic. That last guy
  12. Not sleeping very well at the minute and it's buggering up productivity. Went to bed at 10 last night after feeling shattered following a busy weekend, woke up at 3 with an over active brain..
  13. Text the guy, he built the car in 2009 at a company called Kustom Coach Werks (cringey as f**k)... he ran it for 2 years then sold to farm fresh, in that time he managed 20k miles going to shows and stuff across the states, he's sent me some pictures of it at Sema and stuff (not on show at Sema, just there) and a few at other cool places in America. He owns a VW resto garage in Colorado now building split screens. It's a shame he doesn't have any documents for it etc but the tales are cool.
  14. Yeah thats mine for sale when Farm fresh bought it, then imported over here around 2010-ish. The bloke who i bought it from ran out of money building a boat to live on so was keen to sell it so took my cheeky offer, didn't cost much more to be honest. Looking at those pictures the only thing it's had is a gearbox rebuild, lumpy camshaft and then the new air install I fitted last year. Oh yeah and some bell ends stuck some gross mexican blanket over the rear bench for some reason, need to take that off! I've got the email of the guy from that advert via the fairlane Facebook pages so I'm gonna fire him an email and see if he has any other history on it. I've got some other bits but not much from it's life in the USA. I knew straight away it was mine, there's a rusty dent on the o/s rear quater just by the rear lamp and gave it straight away. Plus it's still on 17/18 staggered Cragars for some reason. Not for much longer though..
  15. Just found this online when looking for something totally different... http://www.2040-cars.com/Ford/Fairlane/1964-ford-fairlane-500-264695/ It still has the cracked windscreen
  16. That was the angle I was going for, anything else is fake news
  17. All the poon would be up for grabs.
  18. Such want much wow too cools. I want new wheels for the fairlane (it needs new tyres and the fronts are battered, more or less square so I don't think a tyre will seat on them). Found this which was for sale a few years ago, 62 galaxie station wagon with a 454 big block in there! Too f**king cool.
  19. Haha, they are all the message Facebook sets up when you make a new friend. I don't even know 8 people
  20. Come again??
  21. Oh shit!
  22. Good talk bro, see you at Easter.
  23. What? Just reread what you wrote and realise exactly what I was saying. You could be interesting to have a discussion with if you actually put substance, evidence and facts into your posts. Do that and your 6 month pop ups wouldn't become such a witch hunt. Well done on getting to view the area of the forum that probably gets new content once a month at best. Actually it's probably everytime you rear your head.
  24. I missed this whole section! So the life of a squirrel then essentially?!
  25. The kind of knowledge that makes dreams come true... Seems to me the people that believe in your secret societies are people who aren't willing to get off their arse and make it happen for themselves as it's easier to blame the rat overlords. Same as fat folk that moan nobody will employ them despite them not trying. I don't believe secret societies exist. I believe there are secret organisations that exist but not in the same respects that you do, I believe there's organisations that keep countries safe, keep weapons development underground and medicines testing. I don't believe there's a secret society that plans the next 911 and other horrific acts to weed out the weak and population/wealth control. Your arguments really have no substance Dave, which is sad as in the Secret Senior Society we just had a chat saying how interesting you could be if you answered questions properly and not just short bursts of nothingness really. Anyway, I'll scurry back down the senior secret rat hole..
