Hey Guys,

Just wondering if it's possible to fit an EF Fairmont bonnet onto an EF Falcon GLi without too many hassles?

Any input welcome!

Thanks Ronin,

I think I can handle changing the lights, but looks like I might have to cut / trim my front bar to suit!

I've just spent over 3 G's on the Venom bodykit, and there's no damm way I'm changing my Venom front bar!

Just speculating at mo...

Hey Bob!

Yeah you're probably right.

Still looking at alternatives to my 'controversial' bonnet scoop!

Just thought I could get a Fairmont bonnet, paint it, cut out vents through grille (which I believe is fake anyway), fit it, and VOILA ...more airflow into engine without a scoop!

Just an idea...

your Venom front bar has a kinda of lip where the difference between the GLi and Fairmont front bar is.
but yeah, its bonnet and headlights, you'd be able to mod the front bar.

Only prob is, I now have this hole in my bonnet over the snorkel!

What's the damage for your scoop? Are they WA based?

That's pretty f**k reasonable!

Suppose fitting would be the expensive part...

Are these guys in WA?
