  1. I had the F6 in a thousand pieces today trying to fit a saggy front bar after collecting a serious spoon drain. I knew I was up for bar mounts LH and RH and lost a few scrivets but that's all sorted. I have found a completely shattered radiator support bar - its broken in 3 places. and whole 6" section on the LHS that ties to the fender is completely missing and I've discovered a bit of dodgy repair work...lots of sikaflex....LOTS of sikaflex So someones done the dodgy and had a crack at repairing it themselves and left me with a problem - I can't install my new cooler till the rad-support is replaced. How does this thing come out? is seems to be fused to the metal upper support (where the striker etc attaches) but the whole rad-support is made of a hard plastic. I would like to do it myself to save the $$$ it will cost to get a crash repairer to do it, I don't wish to make an insurance claim either. But after pricing the parts, its looking bad ($455 rad-support, $300ea for headlights...the list goes on) Has anyone here ever done it? care to share? thanks in advance.
  2. First time building a barra and I've found a hole in the front of the head. What raised concern was the obvious signs of tool marks (most likely from a dremel). This suggests it was made after casting. My questions are: is this how they come from the factory?; is this a mod done to BF and later models? (I was advised the engine came from a BF) Photos of hole attached along with the only photo I could find on the web with a similar hole.
  3. So bit bored decided I could write a thread on the build of my POS I bought this car in 2012 when I was 16 as my first car and its just got out of control since haha.

  4. I had a really small accident 5wks ago and its just getting repaired now. when I say small, I mean really small. when I hit the guard rail, I was going a max of 10-15km/h. for such a small hit, ive managed to do a SIGNIFICANT amount of damage (which makes me concerned about the quality of fords lol). front guard, bonnet, front bar, I/c pipes, radiator support panel, etc. etc. etc. the smash repairer called me in last week to show him the way the pipes go and to show me a few different things and get my thoughts on what else needed fixing. so I went to the smash repairer and was having a look over it and he mentioned that two engine mounts are broken. I looked at the engine and sure enough, its on massive lean and lower than normal. he reckons that this is a common fault with the falcon's and that they fail over time and with more power. they're getting replaced, but I'm worried about them failing again. has anyone experienced this before? have you upgraded them to something else? sorry for the long winded post. lol oh and I did search, but couldnt find anything, which makes me think that this repairer is making sh*t up.
