how we all going, was just wondering how much of a job would it be to put an BA XR body kit onto a standard BA XT? plus, if those plans do go thru, would it be possible to get the FPV bonnets onto an XT? I've heard different stories, thought i'd get the right info from here.

Cheers

I read somewhere you can get kits and bonnets that are XR replicas, that suit the non XR or FPV fronts. So you dont have to modify the lights. Cause the lights are expensive.
Just a thought.

XR lights are $250 each from FTG. Looks alot better than the XT lights, I will be going down a similiar path at some point.

To save more money you could just get the fibreglass bulge and get it grafted (right word?) to your existing bonnet, as the xr bonnets sell for $1000+.
