Theyre different - ute quarters and bonnet are longer.

Yeh they look better than the sedan bonnets, though I dont know if that shape would work as well given the curvier bodyshape of the sedans over the utes.

Yep, many differences.
Main difference is the ventilation area at the base of the windscreen.

And lasty not overly cheap, last one I sold for about 120, with a couple of pea size dents.
rare as hens teeth, ridiculous money through ford, and wreckers generally charge a premium on them to.

Firstly, you need to punch a LARGE fist imprint into them! :evil:

A good panel shop can repair anything, all comes down to ability and cost. Most shops now would rather replace it, but a skilled beater can fix it.
Good luck.

No s**t... i was having trouble with replacing a wiper arm as i was crook at the time and a mate offered to help, little did i know he had a bad temper... a very bad temper

Wasn't until about 2 weeks after i noticed this dint just under the wiper grill part.
You can make out the knuckle imprints so easily,

i cant really make him pay for the damages tho as a burnout gone wrong left him with a rock chip in his hood ( not a stone chip, a big f**k rock chip)

I'll take it to a good beater i trust and know and i don't think cost will be an issue

cheers Sooty :wink:
