not real keen on it to tell you the truth. But one question whats with the broom stick under your wipers then across onto the bonnet? is the bonnet attached? But top effort;)

If the bonnet fitted properly and it was actually a half decent colour, it would look tough.

The BA bulge would look better on the EA-ED than it would on EF-EL, in my humble, IF done properly.

Nice idea, poor execution.

i reckon the ba bulge looks absolutely horn on the ef fairmonts... because of the "hi-series bonnet" and the overall shape of the ef-el's are quite more modern beside the ba's than the earlier ea's to ed's... nothing against early e-series though... i iwned an ea s-pack 5spd champayne gold n went pretty hard...

i think they look better on ba/bf to tell you the truth. Theres no point in putting one on.. at least with BA/BF they serve a purpose. I can't see how it would on a 3.9L EA LOL!! :shock: :lol: :lol:

Would it serve a purpose if it was on an EB with a T2 220kw eng under the bonnet? I need as much cooling under the bonnet as poss, and do not want bloody big holes in it.

Well it is going to be done soon!!!!!

It wouldn't really cool it much at all. I think a vent or a scoop would be much more purposeful. :D

a bulge with a shaker?

imo that car would look 10x better if the side mouldings and the bits that are normally grey in the bumpers were original, break the colour up enough to look good IMO

and as has been said tint, and black B pillars

I think it would look better if it was a little lower, more subtle. Not so big, doesn't quiet flow right.

That bonnet even off a BA? looks too short and the bulge looks to steep, or is that just the size of the picture? looks like a panel beater went to town on it... would look better in black though.
