LOL....your asking for it :-P

both are really nice.

Does anyone know if you can keep the centre piece on the EL's to still show its a EL otherwise it will look like a EF.

Low ghia's grille is very nice, like it a lot :-)

There was a thread on here not too long ago of someone modding an EL Fairmont grille, his car was a green EL Ghia, if i find the thread i will post a link.

EL Fairmont grilles are bigger than the EF ones, ie. the top of the EF ones look flush with the top of the headlights, the EL ones are "taller".
