EL GT
Description: From the Ford EL GT. Other bodyparts are hard to find as Ford never released the moulds.
Parts Available: Rear Wing, Grille, Bonnet Scoop
Available From: Auto Web Components (www.awcinfo.com), Canberra Car Styling (www.canberracarstyling.com.au), Car Mate (www.carmate.com),


Carmate I was told to avoid by 1 bodykit fitter, as their kits are of very poor quality and will cost the purchaser more to get it fitted right.

Just wanted to caution anyone thinking of buying from carmate, I haven't bought from them before though, just passing on a rumour :)

my awc kit though looks like it will bolt on no problem :D

I've heard the same, apparentely they take no care in protecting items when shipping and don't take responsibility when turning up damaged.

Sort of... not...
I can't speak for the skirts because mine were custom but the front and rear bars are just hollow 'shells'. They don't have any brackets or mounting points so you have to be a little creative about how to fit them.

I had to do a fair bit of grinding/cutting to get the rear bar to fit on properly. The front bar was a reasonably good fit but again there isn't much to hold it on securely. Check out my 'I looked up her skirt' thread in the exterior mods forums.

PS: Your car is starting to look alot like mine these days! :lol:
