Okay, so the front bumper on my car seen better days. Well, it's f--ked now but has been in bad form for some time now. Bonus coming through soon so i've got some options...

Let's hear some opinons.

This is what i've got to work with:

Image

So, few options:

a) Replace with a stock bumper. Pros: Inexpensive and i'm used to the ride height. Con: A little plain.

b) EF GTO bar. Pro: Looks s**t hot. Cons: Probably expensive, huge clearance issues.

Image

c) XR conversion. Pro: Looks good, same clearance as current bar. Cons: Done to death already and costs a small fortune.

haha marty looking at joining the XR front-end brigade eh? :P

the GTO bar i'd be steering clear of eh - a) don't like the look of them & b) you'd be having mega ground clearance issues with it - especially as it sticks out further that the std bumper, meaning you'll be clipping more things, and having more issues with any minor rise :?

either XR or stock - maybe even whack a XR lower spoiler onto your std front bar?

Hmmm is that the EL GT mock up kit on a XR front??? Thats what i was after, if it didnt have the different colour hood things then it would look okay.

What about this HOT front end :P

Image
Suprisingly clearance wise there's SFA difference from standard as you can see in this pic.

There's also the venom front bar to fit non XR's, but they're not worth the money for something that looks so close to stock IMO

PS: That bald guy looks shifty as hell and I reckon he should be banned from fordmods :P :lol:
