could always give it a go and if it doesnt work just flog them off to a mate :D

ooo the colour name is bionic, i've been spelling it bonic haha.

so maybe give it a miss? i'd just like to do something to make it stand out abit more, but keep the kit stock.

The chrome mirror "scalps" as Ford calls them, were standard on the BF Fairlane Ghia and LTD, and the BFII Force 6 and 8 by FPV. (BF Fairlane G8 got colour coded mirrors.) They are easy to install by clicking into place.

I think chrome is a prestige look more than a sporty look but I've seen a few XRs with the chrome mirrors and they look pretty good.
