Ford XB Falcon Restoration - Part 3 - Plenum Chamber Repairs
Hello from Queensland and welcome to "Project XB". This is a series of videos I am creating to document the restoration of my ’74 XB Falcon. Although I am a qualified mechanic and transmission rebuilder, I am new to restorations and have quite a lot to learn. My aim is to do just about everything myself, in my own shed - from engine / transmission rebuilding, body / paint work and everything else in between. I want to show what is achievable with a little know how, the right mind set and of course the support of family and friends. With any luck I can pass on what I have learnt and pick up some tips from like-minded people along the way. I am not aiming for a show car when it's finished - it will be restored with a mixture of originality and modern features. Let’s see where we end up! In this video I start the repair of the plenum chamber and welding of patch panels. - Knock Out Rust Taking on a restoration project is a huge commitment in itself and I would like to thank the people who have taken the time to document their projects / tutorials and have given their advice so people like me can learn. I will be sharing links of videos that I have found to be extremely helpful and will be giving credit to those particular people. Anyway, let’s get back into it! Cheers, Philthy Phil
