Looking for custom mods for my ute, IM already lookin to get the full herrod exhaust and suspension treatment, and thee ss induction kit, but alas Id like it to look different on the outside, Hence my ideas for this follow.

Billet upper grille, Horizontal lines
tossing up between same for the lower or the mesh.
A sun roof would be great but im worried about the efect on the strength of the roof and also the waterproofing of the car.
also looking at the lower splitter style spoiler for the front end. What do you reckon, IS a billet grille a viable option..........

something like that i think he's talking about, in the upper and lower grilles. It could look good, i think you'd need some fat chrome wheels to match it but. This isn't a job you'd want to do by yourself.

RE: sunroof, i've seen a few sunroofs fitted to utes before, i don't think they'd weaken the roof that much. Its not like they're cutting pillars and removing your windscreen. They are pretty waterproof.

that is exacty what im lookin at, saw this on ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-FALCON-BA-B ... dZViewItem

Just got to track a company that deal in this sort of product, i know on the east coast there are plenty, within the minitruck scene, so Will have to ring around, then as far as the rest of the car, well with that chrome up the front, I figured some chromed accents around the car might not go asstray, ie. door handles. and then lookin at some nice big intro billet wheels to fill out the arches. With the chrome bars the badges already chrome im hoping it wont look too bad, opinions welcome.......

A billet grille is more Fairmont Ghia than XR6.

Wouldn't look too good.

But, whatever blows your hair back I suppose :)
