Hey Bronze,yes the zoomies do get black inside the pipes and the outside color gets a little dark,also.The side flutes and paint above the zoomies gets a little exhaust build up that you can feel as a rougher area of paint.It isn't from the heat,but from the exhaust emissions.The rims have no problems,though.Bill

As for water getting into the boot (trunk) area, simple solution- big drain holes!


A 1" or slightly larger hole saw should do the trick. I'm sure Max would have taken care of this when he had his long range tanks installed.

would you really drill holes into a replica though, i mean i know it would take care of the problem, but hey man HOLES drilled into the INTERCEPTOR. does the fuel tank (i mean the real one, not the 44's,) take up much room underneath, what if you accidently drill into that.


I should warn anyone whos thinking "what the f**k", i don't know sh*t about cars, just the bare basics, dad raised me on FALCONS, owned 5 of them, and i wasn't interested in them, till after he died, then the damn things were sold off.

Since I have yet to see the trunk area of such a car...there possibly may already be drain holes.





I took the carpet up on my car awhile back and there were rubber plugs in the body. If these were removed, they would go straight to the floor...I assume they are part of a drainage process from the factory.

The boot floor is the petrol tank, remove this and you've got one hell of a hole, forget drills.

That would make for easy fuel pump access if the cars were Fuel Injected.

Adrian, you have the long range or regular tank? I unfortunately have the regular with the spare tire insert. At least it's fairly new/clean.


The big problem for trunk drainage seems to be at the wheel well seams and along the lower quarters. I have some nice sized rust holes at the wheel house/trunk floor seam, and when I removed the fiberboard covers over the areas on either side of the trunk floor, I found all kinds of unhappiness. Seashells? WTF? Also, watch the taillight panel.


In addition, the trunk floor slopes to a seam with the passenger compartment floor and water tends to collect there. I have a big ol' hole under the rear seat at the seam line in the corner.


Roof rails and the filler panel between the rear windscreen/boot lid are also rust prone due to insufficient drainage.


Repair and rustproof everything from the inside out, and you could probably leave the back open.


The larger question is what version of the Interceptor do you want to replicate? Nice and shiny, as in the first movie, beat up as in the second, or somewhere between movies? Right now, the condition of mine captures the quintessential moment where the Interceptor is airborne and just getting ready to roll... Metal damage, brain damage, bank account damage. You'll see the damage, Bronze (21)... Ha-ha!

Mitch, mine has the spare wheel incorperated in the tank as well, all the areas you described as bad points are exactly what i found, the majority of vehicles, over here anyway, have large grommets in the boot/wheel well for such drainage, unfortunately this is an impossibility with ours but very easy to remove the tank, if that's a bonus. I've got a 70 liter LPG tank behind the rear seat so distance wont be a problem.
