Plates are KILAXD. Its a mate of mine. Try googling "Forte Body Styling". That ute is an awsome machine; Twin turbo 460! :P

real quick explanation how to do it:
- cut the top part (1/3 to 1/4) of the XF bar (for mounting points)
- do the same for the BA bar
- then fibreglass and re-enforce them together :)
- and then sand, bog, etc

i was gonna do that way to my XG, here's a rough example of how it may look
Image
the actual BA bumper is just resting against the ute and on a brick lol


ive decided to do the whole front end conversion (full bumper, lights etc)
its a hard job... but if you are handy with an angle grinder, welder or fibreglassing, then you should be fine.
Image
progress shot from 2 weeks ago - more 1/4 panel has to be cut out to suit the BA lights, i have to trim the 'overlap' near the wheels... and the pics dont show it well, but ive 'gutted' the inner parts where the lights sit, to fit the BA lights
