Next question for you nice fellows. My front right Brake line (where it joins the brake housing is leaking under heavy braking. Some drops are being sent north and it is not impressing me, brakes feel spongy too. Do you recommend a good brake line set for front and rear as I plan on putting her into some motorkhana events and want the best I can get (apart from bigger discs of course) but that is down the track. Just want to fix this issue with a superior product rather than going original again.

I have em' and love em'. Really firm the pedal up and even when my brakes fade the pedal still stays firm unlike before when it would get mushy. Also helps in panic stopping for me since I don't have abs and I can easily modulate the pedal now.

Typical Ford...cannot buy just the part I want...so $290 for the pair of new visors was just not gonna happen...the velcro failed due to 42'c days here so now have made some alloy flat bar permanent fixture...I like and does the job perfectly....

Some headlight bulb upgrades to the Narva Intense Blue and LED parkers.
First removal of whole headlight is easier than getting into it next to the battery for god sake...


God I am in love with the front end on this thing.... Dash of Blue from Parkers.

Lots Betterer...

And a debadge effort with a hairdryer and fishing line, thanks for the tip!!


Pricing some Yokohama AE008's for some track work at my local track here in Perth, check out this video of some of the cars... woot!
