Thanks. It has a specific issue with a rough idle when stationary and in drive. The car shudders. Soon as the car is even slightly moving, or if it is in nuetral it's totally fine.

I did some reading with many el owners having trouble fixing this problem, I'm pretty sure it wont get fixed today.

Ask your friend how he feels about tackling that issue

no worries, he has worked on many EL's before, let me know how it all goes

I am. I also want to restore it to some degree. I am doing the roadworthy check today, I'll see how the report comes back.
Hi Chris, are still looking for someone to service your car?
Hey, on behalf of my friend, he can do it, 2nd year apprentice at essendon ford and is located in Avondale Heights. His daily is also an EL Fairmont which he has completely restored himself and regularly services.
