Ok, here's the story, i've got a fully stock EF Fairmont Wagon, its a 5 litre V8, auto, dual fuel. Im not sure what the colour is called, but its a silver with a slight hint of blue. Any way, i have a few ideas as to what i should do to it...
I was thinking a XR tickford bodykit and or a fairlane grill. Also, i was thinking of BA GT mags or my EF XR6 mags? Any suggestions as to what i should do would be awesome...

Id be thinking a Vortech supercharger kit from CAPA with a Dart 331 block, forgies, ect. Then lowering it, bigger swaybar at the front and a swaybar at the rear (im fairly sure a guy on here modded a X series swaybar to fit at the back of his wagon) and some Simmons FR 19's. Oh and a big brake kit from someone like CMS.

Althought thats spending a bit of money.

nice big rims.. 18-19s.. "super low springs".. -for the dumped look.. or you could ride on ultralows and be "in the weeds like me" :wink: :lol: .. Cant go past "limo tint for the windows.. and mayby some debadging and a tidy up of anystickers pin stripes or badges.. a nice sports exhaust to let everone know youre in a pimpin 5.0 fairmont... upgrades of the sound system wouldnt go astray either.. :wink:

Remeber if you go BA GT wheels, that means using adapters which arent on the good side of insurance companies and cops :P

dump it on nice wheels minimum of 18's. exhaust, tint.. and enjoy.

I too have a Fairmont wagon.

I have pictures in my gallery.

I purchased mine stock, and so far I've done:

Cornering lamps.

16" FTR'S, then 17" AUI XR's, then my current wheels (17" CSA Forces)

I had a Fairlane grille on it (not my choice!) but took it off and put the stock one on. Am now searching for a EL Fairmont grille.

5 speed conversion.

2.5" exhaust.

Lowered, but not too low, due to LPG.

Will see if I have a recent pic of ht efunbus for ya to have a look at :)

Darkest legal being done next week.

I've got a few questions...
Exactly how much did you lower it?
Have you had any major problems since you lowered it?
Have you got any idea how much a fairlane grille would cost?

Oh and your wagon looks mint ;)
