thi has been covered quite a few time's before...

you can now buy an BF Typhoon bar thats bolts straight onto an ef fairmont.. -may even be able to be supplied to fit other models.. ie) el gli/futura/????

"NEWGEL" in canberra sell the bars for around 580-$600 inc spotties and mesh fitted.. pre-primed..

side skirts i have not heard of a bolt on product yet... mine were chopped and shortened 40mm by paulc then i had to trim the sill of the skirt to align up propperly..

rear bars are sold on ebay.. baxr-ef el bolt up... rare though.. but thave seen it twice on ebay...

how much of this kind of stuff have you done before? If this is a first then will be a good learning curve, if somewhat steep.

A number of us on here have done similar to what you're looking to achieve.
I used a BA XT bar on my EF.

Most of us tackled it without having experience in the matter and managed to pull it off.
