Hey all,

This is my FC build, I've been at it since August this year, so I'll post all the progress pics to date. This fc is for my son and I, doing just about all the work myself and trying to keep it tasteful - within a reasonable budget.

Stay tuned

What's the plans for it ?

Looks like a clean base to start off with, pretty straight from the pics! Dropping another 13BT in there ?

How was the rust around the rear hatch seal ? :p

Love the OEM interior and the pin striping on the exterior seals!

Nothing too big planned for it, going to keep this one n/a so maybe a PP, I'm planning a fc vert build next year once I've moved back to Brisbane - that'll be my thrasher.

Rear hatch is rust free, same with all the gutters, was some surface rust here and there but the grinder took care of it all.

So that's what I've done since August, I'm being held up by a couple of companies at the moment, so no real idea when there will be more progress pics, as soon as the next shipments arrive and i've fitted them I'll put together an order for brakes, braided lines, mounts and bushes, coilovers etc, drop the rear cradle and do everything at once.

Thanks for looking

Decided instead of posting progress updates so frequently, that all updates from now on will be via my new tumblr account, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Panda-SHPB/204639396285316?sk=wall&filter=1 and I will update here less frequently.

Give it a few days so I can post the progress so far, then I can get into posting the new shit.

Alternatively, if you're lazy like me, on the link provided above there's a facebook 'like' button, get updates straight to your FB - lazy as fuck 8)

No really a job well done.
how did you get the tinge in colour like that dark up top and lighter as it goes further downward.

Pandafc
30-12-11, 02:37 PM
A friend of mine in the states did it, Basically the piece goes into boiling water to open it up (so it can suck the dye in), the top was dipped in red dye, then black, the rest has purple dye on it, which by mistake, blended in very nicely.

That's one more thing done, paid customs today, my seats should get delivered by end of next week. Time to start saving for suspension.

Most of the bodykit is on, will get to painting again one fo these days.

Rolled some 18's under the car to get an idea on how much room i had to play with, turns out there's a shit load of room.

No I am not using those wheels.

Going to be running with 19's

Busy busy busy, Moved from Townsville to Brisbane, got stuffed around with living arrangements, so the FC got put on hold for a while. In the downtime I took up photography to keep me busy, up until December, when I purchased a house, now I'm back into the FC again.

Slight direction change with the build, ditching the bodykit and building it more era correct.

Updates as follows...

A quick catch up over the past month.

Been ordering a bunch of gear this week, fuck all of it turned up though, what I was really waiting on was shelving and a bench from unirack, so I could finally arrange the garage and rumpus and put things in their permanent place. So it's a bit of a mess at the moment.

This week I hope to have the car up on stands, interior and bay stripped and the whole undercarriage dropped. Few things I'm not happy with, so going back and having a better crack at it.

Work in progress

Slow week due to couriers. Shelving and work bench arrived, so I've been able to organise things into their permanent homes. Today I stripped out all the interior and started labeling and pulling the body looms / harnesses, as I will be stripping the wiring harness of all non essential stuff. Out of the 30+ things the car needs wiring for (ecu excluded) I'm retaining only 10, so figured it'd make sense to get rid of the inactive wiring, neatening everything up, simplify it all.

Headlights & coilovers arrived, as did my order from ProBolt, got some gold anodized hardware for finishing touches when the time comes.

Will be pulling it apart some more tomorrow, get it up on stands and ready to drop all the under carriage.

More updates soon.

Got back out there today, removing more gear, got the car up on stands, removed a bunch of factory bash plates, dropped tail shaft and gave all the bolts for the subframe / ass end a good squirt with inox to work its magic overnight. Dropping rear end tomorrow.

Few piccies;

My shelving all set up and holding the majority of parts

Another box of goodies today from mazdatrix. Had to nick down the shops for a 1 1/4" socket for the rear drive shafts, made a half a day of it and went to Bribie Island as well.

At a bit of a stand still until the post man comes, only thing on the cards for this week is to strip the rear end into individual components, remove bearings & bushes, clean up and paint / powdercoat the big stuff.

Today's parcel:

Drive shaft nuts.

That's the bulk of whats been going on past few months, still heaps to go, but mostly small fiddly shit. Keen to hook into the FC again and get it knocked over so i can begin on the rx808.

Also are the mesh wheels on the FC from a Ford Fairlane Concorde by any chance?

The red lighting will suit the stripper pole nicely :D

Cheers, 12x7, drew a lot of inspiration from Nigel's shed as you can see, for the location it had to be in my back yard and what i wanted to do inside it, I couldn't come up with a better internal design / placement.

Gave the dash & rear seats a good clean up and then a wipe over with some interior oil.

Bit of a slow evening the other night, so I got around to fitting my front coilovers, car hardly looks 'lowered' or 'slammed' but as it sits there, no motor or box, the front subframe is less than 120mm off the ground... she's gonna be low in the end i think.

Finished off the shed now, made packing frames for around the tops of the walls and then fitted some sheet metal to enclose it all, finished it off nicely.

I've since bought a bare non rolling shell, fresh 2pak paint, seam welded etc, re-shelled into it, saved a bit of time, just kept finding more and more dodgy stuff on the old shell, this one is mint.
