The EF Bonnet does not fit the XH, rear section (windscreen) is different. The only parts from an EF that will fit the front of an XH are the front Bar, headlights and indicators. Guards and bonnet are different.

If you are lucky you may find an XH XR Bonnet but don't hold your breath.

You could cut the vent sections from an XR bonnet and weld them into the XH Bonnet but if you stuff it up you will have no Bonnet. I would look for a spare XH bonnet and work on that, be aware that they are getting hard to find a good one.

These are available in VIC

Grab a spare set of guards too if you can.

The XH XR bonnet was exactly the same as any other XH bonnet.
It didnt have any vents in it from factory.

Strange, but this is fact.
Don't know why either - I don't think there's any bonnet obstructions making it difficult.
