depends on where you get it from! :P fraud genuine ones go for ~$1000 for the bar, unpainted. SSV etc sell EL XR/Venom etc for cheaper, but you still need to spray 'em!

Youd be looking at a grand for a second hand one from a wrecker anyway. And when I priced a new xr set up for the ED from ford I was looking at $1600 minimum. I imagine EL will be dearer again.

I paid $1100 for the lights and bar and everything, $50 transport from Melbourne to Gold Coast, $250 to respray it (mates rates). $1400 all up for EF XR front.

EL ones arent cheap at all and rare to find. I never found a wreckers who had them except for FTG on here. Try them they often have stuff like that.

i'm after the lights/indicators, as i already have the el xr bar, and they're quite hard to find cheap.

I agree with that but at least the guards & blinkers are still intact and the head lights are ok its only the bonnet & the grille & the front bar that copped the brunt of the damage plus a scratch & dent on the drivers door & the body kit front bar & under the drivers side door plus a new radiator so I would say at least $3500 damagre last bingle was $6500 damage.
Go to my user gallery to see pics of last bingle as I didnt have my phone with me this time sorry no pics.
