Hey guys i need some help...

im from the west side of melbourne and have asked a few wreckers and panel beaters but seems like none of them can get their hands on any parts of an EL GT body kit.

i havent tried Ford as yet coz i know they'll charge an arm and a leg and prob the kitchen sink too...

so just wanna ask if anyone knows where i might be able to find parts of an EL GT bodykit???

Going to a Ford dealer is the last place if i cant find anything any where else...

hopefully someone can help me...

thanx

Best bet is going to a bodykit shop, you can find some of these online by searching, and getting a EL GT replica kit, you wont find the genuine kit as they are not really sold to anyone unless they can prove they own a EL GT in need of a certain part, and even then its not kept in stock, but made up via a mould.

The replica kits arewnt that bad, they have everything except the gaurd flares (bit that makes whe wheel arches stick out) and the spoiler is something you can pick up eaily these days..

Good luck hunting it down, do some searches on here, Fordforums.com , Fordforums.com.au

As Daniel said, your best bet would be going an aftermarket kit.

I've been chasing an EL XR Kit for the past 4.5 years, and havent come up trumps yet. And there are 50x more EL XR's on the road than GT's.

If a wrecker was able to get hold of one, I'm sure they would be after much $$$ for it. As well as if it is at a wrecker, some parts of it would be damaged, so you'd still end up looking for bits everywhere anyway.

From memory an XR kit new from Ford is somewhere near $1800. I'd hate to see what a GT kit would be worth. But then, sometimes you do get surprised. Alot of the GT spare parts actually cost less than their normal XR equivalent.
