Hi All,

Can anyone tell me what is involved in having a BA front put onto an AU? I have been told it is just a matter of changing to BA radiator support panel, side guards, bonnet, bar and lights.

Can anyone confirm this.

Thanks
Brice

Don't actually know for sure but from what I understand it's not just a straight bolt on. I know there's someone on AUfalcon.com who has done it, I think the username was Doc or The Doc.

There is a guy on Ford Forums - The Doc who has actuallt done this to a Wagon. I looked like one hell of a job, he did it to a front wrecked wagon, had to modify the rails etc. Have a look for him there on FF
