So is it the complete bonnet??, i am a bit confused because they talk about scoop moulds so it seems that it fits your existing bonnet yeah. That would mean the panel beater will have to cut out the holes in your original bonnet so that it looks like the pic.

To be honest mate i would stay away from moulding bits to bonnets, its a right pain in the a** and if not done right just looks sh!thouse

I see they also do bonnet swaps - this might be a better option but then you got to think about the qaulity of the bonnet you are getting back and possible issues with that.

yer i take a while to reply :P , yer xr6 bonnet and xt bonnet are exactly the same, personally i believe the xr8 bonnet only looks nice when it has stickers to highlight it, with out the stickers it just looks odd.
