    Im sure it will be ok the stuff i have done to the hull like trying to roll it over and pulling it off the trailer and she hasnt cracked or split is a good indicator im just nervous
    Take it to Georgeís River (Davy Robinson Park - Ramp), Davy Robinson Drive, Moorebank.

    Plenty of river to test boat and if you do it mid week, there will be next to nobody on the river.

    Good luck with trials, when you can do them.


    Shakey - If only I lived near the coast

    The current rips through the river pretty strong so im going to the lake for maiden where the current only has the liverpool lake and the weir so it should be ok if i break down and anchor

    If you canít powder coat a coat of white enamel on top will stop it cooking in the sun

    I'll see how she goes first before i consider painting, painting will likely require sanding and prepping plus etch prime and might cost a few bob

    Should be on the invoice.
    I'd say that's good advice. Cost me more to do a 91 Fairlaine transmission back in 96 or so. Heat is the killer. When the torque converter is acting like a clutch, all that heat destroys the oil and the transmission down the track.

    Re: Aluminium T Top Roof

    My lights the white light was classed as "very bright" hence i chose it but its not very bright at all the red and green lights are a fair amount brighter

    The red and green only have 1 screw too which is weird as the light may rotate

    I can't comment on the white lights brightness but the port and starboard lights have a protrusion where the cable comes which will stop them rotating.

    Not 100% on that era Fords but I'd guess an xr8 and Fairlaine have same transmission anyway. That's the way Ford have always done it. If you reco yours, you have a known good transmission and it's just the other crappy Ford bits that will fail. That's if you keep it....if selling it to get something else with unknown issues then doesn't matter.

    That white light should be more than bright enough?

    It may be bright enough only just as a anchor light but i reckon it wouldnt be seen from 1km away

    On a scale the red/green lights are at 100 brightness the white light is probably 65% the brightness
