yeah that looks mint im with low ghia about the whole grill thing though i rekon paint it a dark colour.
also remember you can only get the gt rims in 17inch and the ones you've photoshopped seem to look abit bigger than that against the car.
but anyways those rims and the xr kit will always look great.
the car looks to be lowerd already? the body kit will do a nice job of making the car look lower anyways so i dont even think u will need to lower it further.

Looks good except the front is too white, needs a EL grill. BTW your going to come in handy on this site if thats your photoshop effort.

Yuk, hate the spoiler and hate the champaigne coloured wheels on the white. Darker wheels for a white body.

Get a chrome grille, Tinted windows, Some nice dished mags (18" or 19"), Clear side indicators and get rid of the spoiler and you'll have an awesome Fairmont

Looks good. excellent photoshop I might add. Lose the wing, or get one of them bigger EL ones. Have you sourced your kit yet?

loose the spoiler.
lower it more as its a 4wd. get at least kings spring super lows and shortened shocks.
get bigger wheels. at least 19's is the minimum these days.
take it down to top tint and get two shades darker than legal all around.
should then be alright to drive around for a year or two while you save up for a turbo.
