My EL's front bumber is pretty stuffed, and needs replacing. I figured that if im ever going to get a good looknig front, i should do it now when i have to replace it anyway. Anyone know where i can get something?

depends on how much money you've got and what your after. I mean for a grand you can prolly get an xr front bar conversion done. or you could get a front bar from a bodykit shop. or you could put an ef normal front on, or fairlane or fairmont front. or just a replacement of the same one stock EL one - the cheapest option.

Short answer, you can replace it with anything.

Only limitations are your imaginings and your wallet.

Ahhh but you assume everyone wants an XR front.... :wink:

Chris check out www.ssv.com.au

They've got some awesome fronts to suit the GLi front (i.e. keep exisiting headlights).

there was a guy azza put me onto, who was wrecking an EL XR6 down in f**k munster or somewhere like that - miles away - and all he wanted for the entire front end was $600! he knew what they were worth, but just wanted to get rid of it all. so that was fine with me! as for the spraying, i know the panelbeater well, and he wanted my old bumper and indicators, so has done a contra with me for the spraying... hehe so i went from EF futura front to EL XR front for $600! magic! :P
