They are the same bonnets. Ford say they are different part numbers so they can charge you more for a Fairlaine bonnet. EF/EL, NF/NL, DF/DL bonnets are the same, only difference is the grill and they are all interchangable.

While back I bought a Fairlane bonnet to fit on the wagon and it was a straight bolt up.

Some of the Higher series bonnets may have a cut out for a bonnet emblem but this will not stop you from bolting it up.

Why do you need a panel beater to fit a bonnet, try it yourself with a mate to help you hold it and it will fit. You may need to adjust the bolts on the hinges to ensure it aligns properly but that is all.

I have an ef fairmont bonnet on my NL fairlane and i bolted it straight on. Who needs a panel beater to bolt a bonnet onto a car anyway?
