The bits you need to do that are rare and cost a lot if you can find them.

I suppose it really depends on the person then. make a decision on weather you want to spend time looking for the parts etc. But its not like XH ute where a limited model. there should be heaps of panels out there. If you where looking for a XH XR front bar I would agree with you on it being rare but thye made 10's of 1000's oh XH utes

To do an XH conversion you need XH bonnet and guards. EF/EL bumper, lights, rad support, rad and to fabricate a bumper reo. ALll the EF/EL parts are plentiful but the guards and bonnet can be hard to find in good condition. You also need a lot of time and a big f**k hammer! :D


So you can use a EF rad support? I thought you used a XH one, are they the same Ash?

Yeah man. The only thing XH is bonnet and guards as they blend from the XF/XG cabin to the EF/EL bumper/lights. XH's were bitsers of almost every car Ford was making at the time.


:lol: not to mention the bitser that yours has and will be when its finnished.
