no offence dude, but with the lights painted like that giving the 'eye lid' effect it looks like a HSV...im not being a d***head, but seriously the first thing that came to mind was VX GTS......the bonnet looks tops...loose the eyelids and she'll be sweet...IMO anyways....

personally id like to see someone continue the bonnet down, rather than the stick on eyelids. Would look much better. Would need to modify guards as well but, and would start getting expensive!

Looks mean. Make sure you post up pics when it's painted and fitted.

How much did it cost ?

I was looking around for an insert like that for mine for a while but gave up in the end

Monaroish. First thing I thought of was XB/XC! First thing I thought of aswell when I first saw the new Monaros.

I reckon it looks wicked as! And I love the eyelids on that set up too!

Ditto... definately not the rear vents. Will look great on a red XR. Remember to post pics when finished
