How much am I looking at for a good second hand front EL XR6 Bar?

+ Indicators?

+ Headlights?

+ Bonnet?


How much did it cost you and where did you source the parts?

Generaly around $1200 for the lot.
You just have to keep an eye on the market and buy them fast when they are available.

Depends on where you buy it, private sales can be cheaper than wreckers, eBay can have some bargains on it from time to time, but it comes down to having the cash to jump at a good deal when you can.

That $700 deal sounds pretty good, worth looking into. I know of a wreckers that has a full nose clip but they want $1200 for it.

Cheers

Can can get EL XR6 bars quite cheap on ebay $200-350. The paint might be s**t but if you need to spray it anyway wgaf.

Headlights and indicators are what cost the most. For a complete head light assembly you're looking at $200-250 a side, and the indicators are about $150 a side generally.

To save a bit you can get away with an EF GLi/Futura bonnet if you don't mind not having vents. XR ones can range from $100-$250 depending on condition or if it has EF or EL style vents.

Which adds up to from between $1000 - $1400 which mid range is $1200 just like EVL098 said.

ive got an ef xr front bar and L indicator and headlight assembly. so you would still have to source a R indicator and headlight assembly.

also got bonnet, guards, doors etc

not sure what you location is but I would sell bonnet, guards and front for $450
