Howdy.

I'm keen on purchasing a set of EL GT style wheel arch flars to my EF XR6. I've done a few searches on the net and I am unable to locate any.

Does enyone know:

A) Where I can buy a set from?

B) Will they fit easily to my XR without any modification?

Cheers.

Lots more EL GT pics: http://fordmods.datamine.tk/gallery.asp ... y=/EL%20GT

There's been no aftermarket kits made. There are some look-a-likes, but none have:

- the grill
- the front bar
- the wheel flares

you can buy the grill, there is also a copy of the front bar looks crap and doesnt have the driving lights spot.
only thing i havent seen made are the flares and side skirts.

Would the flares even fit right without the fatter bumpers? Wouldn't it look bizarre?
