I think you'll find that, apart from the s**t looking one from NewGel, the only way you are going to get a BA/BF front bar onto an EF/EL is with a bit of cutting, fibreglassing and a lot of bogging and sanding :lol:

Glenns' is a pre-made one from newgel... just go to their website and have a look... http://www.newgel.com.au/ford.htm

EDIT: I didn't mean "Glenns'" ... Glenn owns a sweet as Pimped out BA. The BF Phoon bumper in that pic isn't his, it's off of the newgel website.

Right here buddy... http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=11

Apart from Fordmods, there's the E-series club, Modified Ford club and FordForums. But we all kinda inter-mingle anyway so just keep an eye on the above forum and you can get involved in the cruises etc. There's one coming up on the 19th of August up to Mannum.

I reckon the lines of the BF bar match the EF headlights and grill better than the boxier looking BA bar. Thats not to say it looks bad though.

im guessing your simulating how the bar would look if i bogged up the join line.. i like it for the smooth look but at the same time looks like somethings missing as im so use to seeing mould lines on falcon/fairmont bars..
