Has anyone tried this or is it even possible without hacking away too much? I mean anything is possible if you put your mind to it but I don't want to be cutting off mounts and redoing the whole front end just for looks, I'd rather spend that sort of time and money on go fast bits etc.

I want to stand out from the crowd and keep people guessing what it is.


Cheers, Tom

i know you need the front bumper front gaurds headlights.. obvious s**t lol
and im pretty sure the rad support needs to be changed? have a look on australian ford forums im pretty sure theres an au ute with the ba front on it, but he made his own rad support and s**t to make it fit because its just a race car anyway

I never thought of the radiator, turns out the AU radiator is 15mm wider than the BA and Im not sure about placement. If its only changing front end panels, would I need to change the radiator/placement of it? Call me dumb but I have only skimmed the idea and have never really gone into detail of doing it.

Seems there is a lot more modifications needed than I originally thought, Oh well I'll just have to keep on dreaming and wait until I get some descent time and cash to do it. For now, onwards with the motor!
