BA GT side skirts you say ?
Yep. Custom modded to fit my EF ? Yep :D
It took 2 guys 5 hours (!!) to do after they cut and joined it, built up the ends to match the shape of the body and made some fiddly other door spat bits from scratch etc etc.

Skirts on their own would look a bit out of place, so I got the rest of the "EF GT" kit too. It originally came with XR style skirts which were a bit pissy for the bars, so I opted for the BA ones which atleast are original and should look pretty sweet when all fitted and painted.
I'm not a far of the EL GT grill so I got the front bar made without the grille as you would for a fairmont bonnet. I'll stick with my existing bonnet though, and make a mesh grille, probably with the ford badge in the middle - ie. like the BA XR's and GT's.

Image

Rear bar, rear wing and bonnet scoop are EL GT, but I don't know if I'll go with the EL scoop yet or try and tackle the BA bulge. I'd love to do the BA bulge but it's going to be ALOT of d**k around and I think I'd be out of my depth to do it properly (and I'd hate the think on what someone would charge in labour to do it)

Image

As stated in another thread, I'm probably going to paint the whole car phantom (dark purple)

This is a photochop of what it'll look like when done

No, I'll be keeping the EF one. The hole for the grille will basically be the height of the headlights.

And yeah, I'm not sure about the rear wing yet. It wasnt going to be much cheaper to get it without it so I got the lot and figure I can sell it off later if I don't use it. I actually tried on a BA wing but it looked a bit small with the rest of the kit. Ideally I'd like to take about 3" in height off the EL GT wing...

Ah yeah, I forgot to post where I got it.

Peter Haines is the name of the bloke, 0417 243 217
He's got a bodykit factory in Ingleburn and also makes TS50 kits for the AU's, EB kits and obviously this one for the EF's. He's just finishing off the moulds for the BA GT as well I think. My skirts were actually the originals he used to make the moulds for his BA GT skirts.

Anyone who's interested, give the guy some business as he worked really hard on my skirts :) The front bar is his own custom design, and he's the only one around I know of who makes the EL GT rear bar.
He doesn't normally do custom work like he did with my skirts, and he probably won't be keen to do it again for all the time it took him! :lol:

It costs $1200, plus extra for the modification of the skirts obviously.
He normally sells the "EF GT" kit for $1150 which is much the same as what I've pictured above, but with XR side skirts and the EL GT grille moulded into the front bar
