Hey peoples,
If buying a EL XR front do you need to change the bonnet, and if so will it fit in perfect or do you need to make changes anywhere else.

Thanks

Thanks Waggin

Does $600 for a XR Front sound good or is it a rip off


Thanks

does that include lights indicators front bar? if so YES! even for the front bar alone, thats a pretty good price.

as for the bonnet - if you've got an EF Gli/Futura/XR you can keep your bonnet, or if you have an EL Gli/Futura/Fairmont or EF Fairmont, you'll need to change bonnet :wink:

The bars alone are about $800 from ford, new.

on the 2nd hand market theyre worth around $400-500.

Then you'll need lights, which are around $1000 new from ford.. about half that 2nd hand.

Then the bonnet is another story :)

Go there and they have EL XR front lights for $340 each. Save $300.
They are out of stock at the moment but can order it in for you.

They dont have the front bar unfortunately.

Hey uglybob where did you get that deal from for your EL XR front?

azza put me onto the guy - he got the 3.45 LSD for $300. he knew how much the s**t was worth, but just wanted to get rid of it - for that price i couldn't turn it down, and its the best thing i've bought for the car! the spraying i got done for nothing, as i friendly with the panelbeater, and i gave him my old bumper and indicators and a few other parts he needed in exchange for the spraying :P
