well about 3 months back i posted some pictures of different kits that i was considering to put on..

i picked the GT style front bar - minus grill, GT spoiler, scoop and vents.. and millinium side and rear bar - (front bar, rear bar and scoops and vent all hav a aqua/blue mesh insert) and ive also painted the kit in 2 colours, silver and blue, as u can see in the pictures... oh and ive also painted the door handles, wat u think?

now i know, for a fact. there are gonna be some people who think my car looks s**t, some who dont like it, or dont hate it.. and thats kool :)

the main thing is, im really happy with the way it turned out.. so feel free to make what ever comments u want, whether in ur opinion it looks s**t or good.. i wont get upset. lol

oh and i also got a manual conversion done wen i was getting my kit put on, so so much better now that its manual, power wise, and also just a better drive!!!!

anyhow, tell me wat u guys think of my car, and maybe wat it needs?

yes engine mods are on the way - hopefully a turbo in the near future..

umz in my opinion, the gt grill (aftermarket) on this kit, looks s**t, so i got it removed, and put a mesh... i still have to put the ford badge, maybe it will look better wen i do that

haha i like the door handles, sumthin different :P

NOt bad, i dont Rate the GT front bar. the blue mesh has to go. the side skirts remind me of a VR clubsport body kit. with the blue at the back, and i can tell you now remove the rear spoiler and see what itlooks like, it will look 110% better without. but you haev done a good job mate.

im currently doing custom front and rear bars for my Fairmont!


good work again!

cheers kyle

Too showy/stand out/look at me for my liking.
The mesh looks a tad tacky too - but i did only notice it on the front grill and bonnet scoop.
Are those bonnet vents (the two side ones) the EL GT ones? Or are they the same as EF XR?
The door handles I'm not sure about, looks tacky, but doesn't look too bad at the same time!
You need to do something to the headlights as they are looking very plane and boring in there.
Maybe put the chhrome boot peice on and a shinner exhaust tip too?
But If your happy then thats good!

In first glance I think it looks good, dont feel bad about all the things these guys are saying.. On closer look its just small things which you could address to make it look much cleaner and all round nicer.
I agree with handles back to normal, silver or body coloured mesh.. just small things.

Have fun!

For the love of God, how can anyone like the colour aqua? > : /

Need a GT grill to match the beefiness of the rest of the kit.

the kit itself looks alright, the mixing and matching of bits seems to work with what you've chosen.
some better photos will give a better idea though.

I thought they did but I just checked and I was wrong, getting confused with EB GT I guess.

What do you mean by clear headlights? I reckon you need to do something different to tehm, maybe fit projectors in or something.
Don't tint them, it looks stupid usuaully and makes them unusable (can't drive at night).
