hrmmm I dont like it... Does not look right. Maybe better when painted but at the moment it looks crappy. A massive intercooler behind it would look good ;)

IMO it would look much better if you could remove the bumper bars, they seem to throw the look out somewhat.

But good on you for having a go, I wont say I dont like it yet, I want to see the result before I make a decision.

Well you kno how the EF/EL whole front bumper is one piece?
I meant the fat gray strip across the front, I'm assuming its a bumper isnt it? I think it just looks odd with the gray piece through it. So far.

The Grey piece is the EA bar and the red is BA XR. Why would you take the bar off?

Hey guys,

Yeah don't worry it will be painted to match the rest of the car so you won't see the red and the grey bars.. LOL..

I am hoping to have the whole kit done by Wagga AFD but yer my painter is fairly busy and he is going to be repraying the whole car again so fingers crossed he finds some time..

Thanks for the comments.. It all helps..

Cheers,
Nik

lloks good. my only comment though is the BA part looks to narrow for the EA part. looks as if you have cut and shut the BA part once already in the middle though.

Yer i cut roughly 10cms out of the BA bar as it was too bulgey at the ends of the bar in its stock length..
