To fit one of those bumpers to your car, the bonnet and headlights have to be changed too. Compare the two pics below.

If you intend to use the fog lights, they will have to be wired up as well and the switch fitted on your dash.

you dont have to run a switch you can hardwire them into your h3 lights
(parkers) this just means that when you click on your first lights they cant be switched off

a note of interest that the 2 pics above show a ba and a bf2. but yes if you want a bf2 look as said you need new lights, new grill, and new bonnet. if you still want to do it im chasing a bf1 fairmont ghia front end if its up for sale....

Yeah he'd like a BF Mk2 Fairmont Ghia bumper on his BA Mk1 Fairmont. Pics show the unexpected differences in bumper, bonnet and headlights between those two models.

Kewl.

An easier but less distinctive upgrade for slvrba would be to fit a BF Mk1 Fairmont Ghia bumper. Don't have to change out the bonnet and headlights and you still get fog/driving lights.

I've posted this pic in another thread on the same topic but here it is again.

yea ive looked into this for mine. ford want approx $650 for the lower chrome bling. getting and painting a bumper would be approx $500 aswell. puts that conversion out of reach for me unless some pop up on ebay cheap. im going to run with ba fairmont lights i think unless i can find the parts alot cheaper than that

Ferntree gully can supposedly get in aftermarket bf fog lights for like 150 a pair.
