At first when i read the thread title, i thought "oh dear", however after seeing it trial fitted on the car, its going to look mint. Well done on a great idea to fix the XR front.

total cost so far is 250ish dollars.

100 bucks to Matt (Tochi) for a rather sad condition EL XR top half.
100 bucks to Jeff (Phatba) for the BA GT bar.
50 bucks for fibreglass kit and poly adhesive.

I love the look of it already... can't wait for the lights to arrrive so I can glass it together..

Then I can put it aside and stick the SC engine in... and at night return to sanding the bar and stuff.

sweet... the twin 4 inch lights just arrived.. so if I can get their mounts finished before this weekend, I can start glassing the bar. Good thing about these lights is that they also come with upgraded wiring and relay's so there is less resistance and more light as a result. They are also less deep than the real XR lights so will fit easily in my custom housings that are basically chopped down gli light bases.

yeah... I have some 5 1/4 130watt spotties for the corners, and some black grill mesh for the intake..

thinking of making a custom intake behind the XR inlet at the top..... I have all the bits already and there is a ton of room back there that is going to waste...
