Hey all, just having a quick thought and wanted to get some feedback on what you think.

Basically, I want to find somewhere that can customize a bodykit for me, I really love the front of the XR's but I think that the fairmont grille I have now makes the car look really mean...

I want to try and get made basically a Venom XR front bar, to fit on with the fairmont grille...
like the fairy grille, XR twinlights and under that the big mouth opening of a venom bar (to suit FMIC coming much later).

Can it be done, has anybody tried to get XR lights onto a fairmont ???
How much $$$ are we talking to custom up a front bar and would it be worth it.

Oh yeh, would want the bottom half (the venom bit) to have the brake duct holes as per the stock fairy bar so I can fit cornering/driving lights :)

i think you'd want to see a photoshop first.
I've seen an XR fronted car with a fairlane grill, and to be honest it just looked wrong.

I agree, i think it'd look crap. Fairmont fronts look very classy and smooth, XR fronts are supposed to be sporty. Mix the two and it'd look a bit tacky imo.
