hey ive got a BA xr8 ute and r looking to put a split system on it. To do this i need to cut out another section from my back bumper. However how do i get it to look like the other side because by just cutting it out it will look hollow compared to the other. hope some one can help

Did you go to the URL and have a look?Not to offend buddy, but are you expecting me to buy it and fit it for you aswell?

The answer is yes, they do the BA Pursuit, BF Pursuit, and BF Super Pursuit rear bars to fit quad pipes, price is $385.00.

Looks to me like it's fitted to an AU in the pictutre, judigng by the styling of the 'Falcon XR8' badging on the rear.
Quote:
Factory Style Pursuit rear bar with non factory opening for quad exhaust, with numberplate in the middle.
Late BA Mk1 and all Mk2 utes have reverse light in the taillights so it's not needed in the bar.

If you want a price on painting, postage, or any questions about the product, ask them, you can do that through there website![/quote]

yer i thought that to, but when i asked the panel beater he said it would look diff because one is solid and the other would be a hollow cut out.. although i dont think with a good exhaust tip it would be tht noticable.

i think you either have to deal with having a cutout or maybe get a fibre glass mould put around the new cutout? i cant see much else you can do really :|

Go to a bodykit fitting shop and they should charge around $150 to make an identical hole.

You wouldn't even notice it with the tips in there. Get like twin 3" or 3.5" tips in each hole and you won't see it.
