Its a Fairlane, don't put a bodykit on it just dump it is my opinion!

I've seen a guy who modded the Tickford side skirts to fit it on his NL and it looks awful.

Dumped + chromies IMO

Bars are completely different and side skirts are longer than the sedan.

Stuff it, if you want a bodykit go for it! It'll mean some customisation though - you'll have to find a set of normal Falcon sideskirts you like and then have them extended - if you get fiberglass oens it shouldn;'t be to hard to do yourslef (I'm doing it for my wagon soon), but plastic ones will probably need to be taken in somewere.

As for the front bar might be able to modify a XR/Tickford skirt to fit? Or replace the entire front bar with something you like - it'll probably mean needing a normal falcon bonnet though.

If you want one, the best idea is custom and that is a fair few $$.

front can take ur normal tickford skirt.
i'm sure a wagon sideskirt would come close to fitting and/or be modified to fit.
rear would have to be cusotm.

AFAIK the onlys side skirts on an XR wagon are custom made. There is one company who does this. They cost a fortune from them, better off modding sedan ones yourself.

Did not know that. The company I looked at were like $650 or something ridiculous. Cheers. O, and Bob Hall doesn't do them, I asked when I got my spoiler for the wagon done.

IMO NF or NL lanes' look bloody horrible with a kit mate, even a spolier does nothing for em, just dump it with some nice genuine GT's, or a set off a Pursuit ute

i like the look of nl/dl with a tickford kit. have one floating around ACT.

front lip is same as sedan, skirts from an ef xr wagon (only long wheel base to have skirts of ef/el) and a custom rear bar lip.
