Can you fit a Series 1 AU bonnet and front bumper onto a Series 2 AU?

This is for the Falcon

Cheers!

Ok well all Front bumpers except for the XR are the same from series 1-3. Where as the falcon/furta bonnet series 1 gets the XR bonnet.
So you will need either a series 1 fairmont or fairmont ghia, or any AU2-3 bonnet expect XR

the series 1 au bonnet has a little hanging thing in the middle front for the ford badge. series 1 au falcon bonnets only have this. to put this bonnet on another au means you need a series 1 grill as it has and indent in it. so if transplanting an au 1 bonnet and bumper over, you will also need the au 1 grill unless it is a fairmont or better.

low series AU2 and 3 utes have the same bonnet as lower spec AUI's

In regards to sedans though ... AUII onwards used the high series bonnets from memory

Hi All, I thought I'd post in here rather than begin another thread.

After reading this thread I'm still uncertain as to whether a "High Series" Au bonnet will fit nicely onto a series 2 Au XR8?
There's a particular scoop I like but it won't really look right with the XR bonnet due to the centre line/profile of the bonnet but it should look ok with the high series.
I've never seen the original Quad light XR front with a high series bonnet...

Any advice appreciated,

Cheers,

the series 2 or high series bonnet will physically fit the xr8 but the shape is different and will leave a odd gap between the xr8 nose and bonnet,
