You can buy replacement moulds from Ford for around $60-100 for a full set.

yeah thats what i was thinking new black ones would look kewl tho on silver you would have to get el xr moulding thouhg caus gli wont fit round the front el's were different and the ef moulding is flat el is raised kinda looks better anyway.

but as i said i thinks its only really for ef's as its fairly plain at the front needs alittle bit more character and a different colour stip round the front does it, just my opinion anyway

grey XRs look rather nice in my opinion...

and ugly bob, is the black stripe down the side of EFs just stuck on? or is it clipped on?

as in the black mouldings? they are held on with double-sided tape - a bit of an effort to remove! :?
