mud guards removed, clear repeaters, el xr front end conversion and bigger rims are needed. Looks like hes going for more of a stock look but, prolly just to emphasize the bonnet

Cool 8-)
I rekcon it'd look better on a non XR though, too many recessed holes make it look cluttered (XR headlights, scoop holes)

You'll probably start to more of this sorta thing around now with the new monaro bonnets having that look.

Couldn't have said it better myself ! Was thinking the ELXR front end mainly...always been a fan of the EF XR wagons.

How did it look side on was there a bulge or was it following the original lines?

I saw a picture of a wagon EB I think on Ebay about a year ago and it didn't look right but that one looks OK

Yeh i was thinking of doing that (there is a white Xd or XF or XG panovan around geelong with a bonnet like that. PRoblem is finding an XB bonnet like that that isnt rusted to s**t or too expensive to borrow the hump from.
