You may or may not know, but I’m in the process of refurbishing a 1992 EB XR8S. As these aren’t exactly classed as classics yet so parts can be hard to find.
So the solution? Go Green and use recycled parts of course. I have a favorite wrecker that I always use, Self Serve at Wacol. I love being able to wonder through the yard with a bag of tools picking through the cars.
I’ve picked up some bargains over the years, like a pair of racing seats on their “$49 all you can carry” weekend (which they half a dozen times a year) and the boot and original seats for our “Exie”.
It’s not everyones cup of tea, but I feel good that I’m going down the green path and doing my bit for the environment. If your not into pulling stuff apart yourself, they can do it for you at a small extra cost.
What did catch my eye yesterday was Craig’s new project, a BBQ. By now most of us have seen the V8 BBQ but Craig has gone about ten steps further. He is currently building an EB GT BBQ!
It may not look like a GT at the moment, but rest assured that the EB GT front bar, bonnet, guard trims and original wheels are waiting in the wings to be fitted. Better yet, Craig is also making a back half of the car which will hold the fridge in the boot! It will also be GT spec.
I’m going to post updates during the build of the ultimate Ford fans BBQ so keep an eye out for them.
