and its different..


good luck with the fit, will look good once done :wink:

The chrome number plate surround off the fairlane garnish fits straight on with no mods... looks good too I think.. its a start :-)

The new boot and spoiler clean up all right too.. especially with the EF taillights in place of the lamo EL ones..

the whole thing could use a wash and polish me thinks..

hmm... the more I look at that, the more I like it.. it breaks up the blandness of the EF/EL rear without going overboard like a fairmont spear...

Honestly, I think that looks like poo....
Why not get a fairmont surround to see what it looks like?

Hi Alfy...

The lights are EF lights now.. swapped them last week.

I may have to re-think fitting the whole garnish unless I can get the fairlane lights and boot to fit also...

The garnish sticks out half an inch.. on a fairlane, thats fine because the boot is recessed.. the EL boot wasn't designed for a garnish so it isn't resessed except where the number plate fits.. not enough for the whole garnish..

having said that, if i can get the whole kit from a fairlane.. I'll certainly see if I can get it all one there..

not sure I like the spear.....

first I have to find a fairlane with a cheap back end and I have to visit with an angle grinder and then fire up my welder..

krisisdog..... personal preferences mate.. apart from which, I didnt' like it much at first either.. but its grown on me and the pictures really don't do it justice.

If I put a fairmont surround on it.. it'll look like a....... fairmont.. and I don't particularly like them at the rear..

The chrome surround was a temp thing to see what was possible.. still a work in progress... I don't mind the look though.

I like the spoiler.. its' small and low.. not like a pram handle... but the rest I agree with...

I still havn't given up on this yet:

So once I get some fairlane taillights and boot lid, I do plan to give it a shot.. (you'll be happy to know that the EL spoiler will not fit the fairlane boot due to differing curvature.. :-)
