Just thought I might post some pics of my bonnet mod that was done this weekend. Know it has been done on other cars but never seen it done on a Fairmont. Still needs to be fully welded and painted but thought I might post them anyway and see what everyone thinks. I also have some pics of the work as it was done and if anyone is interested I could post them.

I don't mind that at all, I've been thinking about getting that done on an EL XR6 when I find the right one to buy.
Anyone seen an EL XR's with that :O?

But i think it looks better on the XR/Falcon bonnets coz they dont have that big grille at the front
but thats my 2 cents

looks good anyway :)
