hey, im new to these forums, recently buying an EL falcon gli ex cop car for 1900 bucks, and was looking for information on some basic mods for my car. and of course, like many others, the s**t hit the fan and my ideas sorta became bigger ideas :P

i have tons of ideas but have no way of knowing if they'd work or not so, i thought i'd start up a discussion on if this particular idea would work or not.

i was wondering if it would be possible to take the FG falcon front sheet metal and somehow graft it onto the front of my EL falcon. i haven't taken measurements yet to see if anything fits, cause im still not sure how extensive the work would be to do this sort of conversion. budget is no concern at this current point because i want to be sure of how much work is involved before going ahead on something like this.

cheers.

with lots of fibreglass and lots of bog you may end up with something that might look a little like an fg front, but the car would probably weigh about 300kg heavier...

in all seriousnes not really going to happen, the differences are huge..
