Hey crew, in the hunt for some more class, i bought a BA Fairlane G220 badge the other day from work for my Fairmont. But before you ask, i'm not trying to make it into a Fairlane and i do realise it's not Ghia spec but i was just after a bonnet emblem in a flat rectangular shape, like the FBT emblems or like so:

Fair comment Leroy, i can understand where you're coming from, as i too am still unsure of it's placement.

Timmy97EL, i bought it from work (Coventrys, but not much longer) for $40! And yes it is chrome coated plastic unfortunately haha :D

I like it, and I like the bulge, and I like all the chrome! Nice car mate, it'd get ten out of ten if it were black! But 9.9 isn't bad... :lol:

Haha sure, but not until you either make both headlights yellow, or neither! :lol:

That colour is splendid though, I'm not sure black could do more for it than the red. Besides, black makes it hotter in summer, and red makes it faster! :lol:

Cheers

Haha, been putting it off for a while getting it fixed, but you get that when the previous owner crashed it and the panel beater didn't bother to get two new headlights, not that he should have, just would have been nice :lol:
