the Beast will be here soon!
Some minor exterior mods for my EF

Picked up a Typhoon Bar on ebay for $100, will be driving over to pick that up next weekend.


And I just picked up an XB GS Bonnet for........ $31.05 :lol:

Slight problem there though, it's in Adelaide, still have to work out how I'm going to get that sucker home.

It's all good, local courier is doing it for me for about the same price it'd cost me in fuel, which when you think about it is really good considering that I don't even have to leave the house!

Done the trip over to Port Pirie about 20 times over the years, so it was no real hassle, my main concern was the seller, some get narky with a low final sale & usually want immediate pick-up, the seller in this case was really good about it all.

The Bonnet should be here either Thursday or Friday.

Still looking for an EF GLi Front Bar to cut up, since I don't want to chance ruining the original.

The Typhoon Bar?
Well I would make about $110 profit, but then what the hell would I use? a decent replacement is worth $650!

The final price for the courier to get the XB GS Bonnet over from Adelaide was just $107, I couldn't have got down there 1 way for that! :D

Total cost for the XB GS bonnet is $138.05, which is sitten pretty don't cha think! :D
