It's not finished, but here's a sneak preview. Dang, the tow bars made life harder! The photo doesn't do it justice, it looks wicked!

Note: if you look hard you can see my freshly coulor coded side mirrors, the reflection of the rear spoiler in the rear window, and the drivers side skirt.

for me it was more a case of no other options! (only other rear wagon bar I found was 3 times the price - more than what I paid for the entire rest of my bodykit!).
Personally I disagree with you, one thing that I always thought was wrong about the stock wagon bar is it disapears under the car, always thought it gave the back a kinda queer look!
While I don't think it is the most perfect best looking thing either, it's definately a huge improvement in my eyes and matchs the rest of the Tickford-look-a-like-wagon-kit very nicely!

Gunna have to redo the exhaust tip now, as you can't even see it in there its so far back!

well some of the white is obviously a brand spaking new pant job while the rest is 11 years old, also ones sprayed professionally and ones a home job. couldn't really expect them to match perfectly.

Are you being a smart a*** about the wagons a*** being the same ugly one right through the E-Series?

My current problem is the rear bar has a gap between the passenger side taillight and the rear bar. It was there before I took it off and I hoped I'd find somereasoning, but havn't been able to and it's still there when I've put the bar back on! :( Dunno what to do about it...

jeez chill dude! :?

what i'm asking is if the rear skirt that you've fitted onto your wagon is from an EA-ED sedan, as i can't pick the shape from anywhere!

it's an EL sedan Tickford/XR bodykit rear skirt. Or that's what it's based on. It's been altered and modded to fit onto the wagon. I've also had the sideskirts done the same and have an EF Tickford/XR front skirt.
