I'm going to get a BF GT front in the next couple of days with the hope of grafting the bottom part onto my EL XR8. Will it work or just one of those too hard basket cases?

personally i woould use siceflex. it is very durable and long lasting. i used it to fix my trail bike when i got stuck in the bush. you can get it from any hardware store. it worked so well even to this day.

Would be good if I could find some pics of the work in progress so I know where to cut etc. Also need to source a grill and the fog lights and surrounds. Might be too much cost to worry about.
