It will be cheaper/easier to get an XH ute and be done with it.

as already stated, use a ef falcon radiator support cut, use a xh bonnet and gaurds, and you have to use a ef gli front bar and headlights, el front bar wont fit because its a different shape and the grille wont fit with the xh bonnet, and the fairmont grille wont fit because its mounted on the bonnet, unless you want to chop the front of a fairmont bonnet off and weld it to the front of a xh bonnet, and even than you'll need to get the fairmont front bar and fairmont headlights, you'd be looking at big $$$. youd be better off just getting a complete XH front cut, than you could use the later model front suspension and steering rack etc. etc.
