Mate you have a great project there.You either have a xe esp ghia or someone put on the esp bonnet and grille which are pretty hard to get hold of.Anyways you are going to have to spend about 400 bucks for each headlight from ford.Dragway indies look excellent on xe(i have aset on my xe)but i reckon a set of 16 tickford rims of an el xr6/xr8 would be the go.Has it got a scheel interior grey patterned bucket seats and full s-pack dash?tacho etc?

I'm gunna go out on a limb here and say, as far as the wheels go, get the snowflakes polished and whack a good set of 225s on 'em and lower it into the weeds. I had em on my XF (pics in my gallery, not real good ones tho :( ) and I reckon it looked s**t! You also wouldn't beleive the number of people that would come up to me and ask "where did you get ya wheels?" and then wouldn't beleive me when I told 'em they were factory. Theres only two colours for a car: black or white (looks out window at silver xh :cry: ) 8-)

I just realised the rear seat headrests on your car.I am pretty sure its an esp ghia.You should ring ford discovery centre and see if its original or someone might have chucked an esp ghia interior in.If its an original esp ghia you should try and restore it.Have a look at this site www.fordespghia.com.au and see how good these looked out of the factory!

Hot House Green looks great on the XE.

a holden colour? no way!
get a nice gloss black, paint the centres of the snowflakes black and get the lip polished, will look tough!
