On the Fairmont, the grille is part of the bonnet. On all other EFs, the grille is part of the bar. Can't say it can't be done, but it'll probabltytake a bit of work!

Thats a rip off. who do you work for?? John Howard himself!

headlights, complete including bulbs for a 'Plastech' i think it is in Sydney, $100 each, reco'ed to better than new, they have been UV protected so they don't fade or go yellow.
