As the subject line suggests, i was wondering what a BA Wing would look like on my XF falcon, and if it possible to mount legally and safely. i really like the shape of this wing and i doubt that i would consider another.

also, on the subject of body mods, what kind of money am i looking at the get my guards flared so that my 9" front wheels and 10" rear wheels will fit.

anyway, thanks for reading and please post your opinions

thanks

It wouldn't come remotely close to fitting an XF. It'd be too narrow and too curved to suit the basically square-shaped XF back.

Not bad for an XD, just needs the front dropped!

i had heaps of mods lined up for it, as that WAS the hand me down from my dad, but after the crash (damn public servants) the wheels and the spoiler were the only thing worth keeping.
