it depends on how much money you want to spend you can buy the whole lot for around $1500 second hand from a wrecker and have everything you need tomorrow, or you can do what fraser and i did we kinda shopped around abit for parts, i was lucky to get my front bar for $200 with a tickford skirt on it, but i had to buy new headlight ($620) got em cheapo for new :) it takes a whiloe to collect all the parts worth it in the end though.

Thats probably the best thing to do, slowly add things up over time and get it cheap as possible.

being over here in WA though, you'll struggle to get all the parts - you'd almost be better off just getting it from the guys @ FTG in one hit. you pretty much never see any parts for sale over here :? not cool!

if any one wants to know you can wash the roof lining with some omo and cold water, i have done it to the ef, i hanged it from the veranda on its side and hosed it down with a gentle stream sprinkle some omo and rub with your hands use a soft brissle brush if u have to, then hose down again, leave there to dry in bright sunlight for abt a day, have some kinda backin like mine was against a wall.
the xr front looks good.

I've got an EL XR front bar, but can't seem to find the lights/indicators cheap.
Looking at that pic makes me want to throw it on.
I just offloaded an ef xr front bar with kit for $200 (slightly damaged).

hows everyone, my wife and i are in a bit of a mess we've just found out our poor ef fairmont ghia has blown a cylinder so were runnig on 5 cylinders and up for a new motor . Our mechanic told us it would cost roughly 3-3500 grand for a new one from gem engines because of the 3years and unlimited kms that would be a big benefit, but thats just a basic 6.my wife and i would rather a more performance 6 but dont know where to go from here. If theres any one out there who could point us in the right direction with basically a good warranty we,d like some info thankyou louise and danny.
