Hi All

I am looking at putting just the front bar on my BF Falcon SR. I have found the BA GT or BF Typhoon front bar which has been made to fit the standard XT lights, although at $600 unprimed or painted is a little bit pricey. I was wondering if there is such a place in which you can buy the standard XR front bar but with it moulded to fit the standard XT lights?

The place I can get the poon and Gt bar is www.ssv.com.au

Thanks alot for the help guys

An XR bar with normal lights will look nearly identical to a normal bar. GT bars and all that moulded to normal lights look so stupid in real life, you will regret it.

Honestly yes. A mate of mine has a white BA XT with the gt front bar for the normal headlights and it looks sooo stupid. You'll spend $1000 or so once its painted and on and I guarantee you'll regret not going proper headlights.

yeah i just found the full gt kit which i think would look much better even with the xt headlights, ive asked him for a price outside of ebay and a few other questions, i can get it painted cheaply so will be interesting to see what the kit itself is worth

Yeah i have recently bought a F6 typhoon bodykit with the XR front. I own a 05 ford futura MkII i bought XR headlights on ebay and they look great worth spending a little more with the lights to make it look like the real thing.

Also i need to get it sprayed in shockwave blue would anyone know the prices for it to be sprayed?

thanks for the info mate, im no going to worry about the xr headlights, i seen a pic of it on with the xt headlights and the difference is so minimal. how funny that my car is also shockwave blue. Ive gotton a quote from the actual place i am buying it from for 1.2k sprayed and fitted although they are in melbourne so wud have to make a holiday out of it and road trip down there

Yeah i was thinking of getting the kit with the XT lights but i wanted to have it look like an F6 without anyone knowing till they got up close and looked at the interior xD . My kit came in the mail today so i cant wait to get it fitted.

Also with the ba shockwave blue there was a recall on the paint where its bubbling and peeling off so check all sides of your car i am getting mine resprayed for free by ford because of this in a few weeks it ends in july so might as well have a look ill post pics when my kit is on.

Thanks for advice mate, i did know about this, mine is a BF though and i have had a look over my car once i found out about it but my paint seems fine so it must have been sprayed after they found out about the f**k up paint. Where did you get ur kit and how much you pay for it?
