Mod it for what? spotties? driving lights? I assume you mean fora custom front bar? check out this link.

www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=35325.

for a custom bar, a lot of cutting, shaping and fibreglassing is needed.

To start you need an idea on what to do. Once we have that, then we can help.

It can be done. there are a few people on this forum who have done similar things. check out effalcons car. he as a BA kit right round. You need to find a lower half of an BA xR bar. You will need to cut your EF bar just above the dividing strip and get them either fiberglassed or plastic welded together. fitted, pianted, aligned etc. lots of work

Sorry Shoey, My mistake. Just didn't look the same side on. Sorry about that. Then in that case it is almost exactly what i want to do. How difficult was it. Did you buy the lower half and attach it to the ef front bar
