Whats the price/condition of it - try n get some pics/info for us, there are many members who would love to own one, n they arent easy to find, spread the word.

PS: if i see anyone going for 'my' grill i will face slam them into my towbar, LOL!


um its blue, paint work is average, scuff marks on mags
100k kms on it, leather is ordinary whoever had it smoked in it
engine bay was dirty, oil everywhere

overall, hadnt been looked after, they want 16k for it


i would steal the grill, but the steering wheel.... :twisted:

are u talking about that grill surround?


Well yeah, but the chrome grill surround. I thought some of the EF Ghia's had it, or maybe it was just that Fairlane that TickFord.

Because as I understand it, you can buff back the factory fairmont grill and it is chrome (metal anyway) under the paint. Pretty sure someone on here has done it, or maybe it was FM1??


When you say grill, you mean the grill surround right, because I know the actual grill (grey on Fairmont, black on Ghia is plastic). And if that is so I have no idea what tools I would need for a job like that, let alone how to remove the damn thing! lol. Help?

Yep the grill surround is what I mean, although for some C**k-eyed reason my grill appears to be chrome... (it's not it's plastic)
