Hi,

I was wondering if a EF fairmont bonnet would fit onto an XH ute, and if any other mods would be needed as I do like the look of the faimont front ends.

any info would be appreciated..

PS : Uglybob if you still have those falcon classic rims I would be keen.

Why would you rather a fairmont bonnet than the XH, the XH looks heaps nicer, specially when you get an xr front end to match

Is it a big job to convert the front end to XR6?

Not really, you can get it all done for around 1200, just got to buy front bar,headlights,indicators. There is a doco made up already on this. Its pretty much exactly the same for XH XR front ends

When are the aftermarket gunna come to the table with a replacement bonnet for e-series Falcons that looks like that!

Just out of interest, how much did it cost to get the buldging bonnet fabricated?
