I'm with Dan. T3 is over done (unless it's a real T3!) and Hawk is ugly. Tastefully mod a stock car without being a sheep and following trends FTW!

Hawk is ugly, TS50 is nice and so is the Fairmont IMO.

IMHO, I'd change the bonnet and bar, replacing it with a Fairmont front.

+1...it will have a simple yet upgraded look...but that's also my opinion.

It is a simple change. The bonnet will need to be swapped for an S2/3 Sedan or Fairmont bonnet, the bar will need to be changed to a Fairmont bar, and the grill will need to be bolted in place. It is as much work as a T Series front, but abnormal for a ute!
