Can someone please give me the measurements in mm or cm of were the scopes are placed on the bonet of an EF/EL XR Falcon.
I have just purchased a set and would like them placed in the same spot.

You really need an xr bonnet for them to look right as they actually sit more flush with the bonnet rather then on them. Though this means you also need the xr front bar as well. Do you want to just stick them on the top or do you want to cut holes etc etc? Someone on here should have the measurements.

No i want to put them on properly , if i was going to stick them on i would have bought those cheap stick on ones.
I know there not going to fit correctly on my bonnet as it is from a fairmont but i would just like the standard measurements to work of.

Umm just to let you know you would really need an XR bonnet

because there arent just 2 holes in the bonnet

from the holes the metal top curves in towards the engine, then 4 brackets turn back in towards the hole to hold up the scoops, which have holes in them to also bolt the scoops onto

so if you want to do all that yourself good luck
but if it was me i would be looking for an XR bonnet

also, the scoop holes are angled inwards and curved so its going to be hard for someone to measure them exactly
best to measure it yourself if you can get access to one, that way you can draw your own diagram and know how everything goes
you wouldnt want to make a mistake

Would look absolute s**t.....

Yeah I agree, don't worry about the bonnet scoops unless you get your hands on an XR bonnet. I seen a fairmont with the scoops on the bonnet about a month ago and they didn's seem to sit right beacause of the crease, it looked almost like they were waiting to be peeled off or something.

im guessing you mean a sequential scoop? If so apparently the guy isn't making them anymore because he is busy with a new baby or something. Do a search for sequential you should be able to find his details on here.
