Hey guys,

Just noticed that you can buy a BA buldge and mould it to any type of bonnet. Has anyone with an e-series done this? If so what did you think, Rice or nice?

I agree with chunkz - might be rice if no engine to fill bulge.
Why doesnt someone do one of those paint shop pics so we can all see what it looks like.
Maybe you should by a supercharger to go with the bulge?!?

Ride: EL XR8

Location: Canberra
ACT, Australia

I have seen a pink EL XR getting round in Canberra with the bonnet bulge and it looks great! The bulge i mean - a pink car is not exactly bursting with testosterone... :D In that case - Ricer :x

The bulge on the bonnet looks really good actually, and if you can get someone to do it properly, i give it the thumbs up, but yeah, it does give more credibility if you have a car that moves along and can 'walk the walk.'

Alternatively consider the EL GT scoop, which gives you a good cooling option as well as an aggressive look to the front of the car.

I've only seen the AU and BA AWC bonnets that Shugg mentioned, but they're a complete bonnets not an add on.
Add on wise I've only seen the EL GT, EB GT and VN Group A styles getting around

XCH45R, WHERE have you seen these !?

I believe it is found right here http://www.awcinfo.com/secureshop/categ ... cat_id=309
If that dont work you go to "body panels", then "other" and it should be the first thing there.

Thanks for that. But we would have to find out what price we would be looking at to get it grafted to the bonnet and painted? May be looking at some big dollars?

Jay, can you find out tomorrow mate, if Mark knows of course, cheers.
