I am kicking this around as i reckon it has potential.Is there anyone who can clean it up and colour it the same as the car as this is the limit of my photoshop skills.

Mate, that's intense, I was thinking of doing the same thing but the other way around, ie. My EF Mont front but the lower bumper from a GLi/XR, imo it looks more aggressive and would look hot with thh efairmont grill etc. imo. I bet know one knows what I'm cr@pping on about, lol.

Good idea, good headlights with a tough looker lower bumper.

So sick of my crappy headlights, but the EF Fairmont front looks too good to ditch.

ive been tossing up the idea of an XR front with my Ghia lower bar, but as people are saying, the Fairmont front is too good to change.

Ain't that the truthhhh.

But I think the twinlights could be a solution, expensive one though. But they still look tough which is good.

That is one rippa looking monty mate, looks awesome lowered with the luxo alloys, i'm kinda spewin' I sold mine now, lol. You know what the problem is with those aftermarket twin light set up is? They need to have had the lights sqaured off at the top to give it that menacing look, not at the bottom as in the pic. If a company sold stock EF/L headlights but with a clear lense and twin globes inside ie. BA Falcon styles, they would sell a S&it load and would look awesome

As near as I can figure all I would have to do is slice a bit off the top of the bar and glue it back together..Was it as simple as that?
