hey guys, i need to do something about the front bar on my el wagon as it is f**k.
the bonnet also has a huge dint in it thanks to the over confidence and boom gates haha.
anyway, ive always found the big grille and chrome of the LTD front pretty sexy and was wondering how hard it would be to fit onto my wagon, would i need to replace the quarters aswell or just the bonnet and front end?
thanks for the help guys.
and anybody have a front in the dark blue colour?

The low beam relay needs a wire cut if the wagon isn't a fairmont.
