Thanks man, not many people do like the grill. I've always liked it, ever since the first Genuine EL GT I remember seeing when I was like 8. But I guess it's all personal preference.

The grille looks good although the grille looks to sit a bit different than the original

Yeh... This is a modified GT kit designed by a bloke named Peter Haines for EF's. Also, this is a kit for a Fairmont rather than a standard GLi/Futura and so it will look a lot different to an EL GT

I got absolutely no idea horis as I don't have a Fairmont. He accidentally sent me a Fairmont front bar assembly rather than a GLi/Futura one. You probably just remove the Fairmont grill and glue on the GT one in it's place. Give him a call and ask him if you want. 0402 06 4444. He is heaps helpful and more than reasonably priced. You may even be able to get my grill for a good price after I return it to him.

As i was saying to Mongoose, the body kit looks wicked, i was just pointing out the grille area looked a bit different, as in it comes down lower past the headlights.

yeah i have sat here staring at them for a while... the top front bar looks like there is something out of place on the lower sides but might just be the picture... and the bottom GT only looks good complete. i love the driving lights in the bumper but from what i can see it would sit just as low as a stock front bar... the GT should be lower. the bottom grill definately looks better tho

aw yeh... I see what you mean now... I've seen pics of both kits seperately a million times but never actually put then side by side and done a comparison. The EL GT grill is actually part of the bonnet... I never realised. I don't really like the front of the EL GT, IMO the front of my kit looks tougher.
