as you can see it had a vn ss holden bonnet scoop on it.. weird on a ford right? so that has now been taken off and a new bonnet has been put on and ef xr style bonnet vents have been put on.. as well as the rear wing and boot which replaced with a fairmont boot lid... pics of that to come.

Bonnet looks alright in pics at least with the VN gear. Rest of the kit looks good too, EFs are a solid car, and yours is a pretty good example of one!
Whats next?
Cam?
LSD?
Turbo :P

lol, CAPS LOCK MUCH?
Yeh I know all about the P Plates restrictions, I just got off mine. Having said that, I had extractors, exhaust, cam, shaved head + other mods done while I was on mine. Dont give em s**t and they generally wont give you s**t.

Also a cam cant be detected unless they are willing to strip your motor down, just tell em its running rough coz its a crappy motor, theyll laugh and let you go!
I wouldnt go too outlandish with the bodywork either, unless you want attention.
What chromies are you looking at?

hahaha i was to lazy to turn caps off lol not goin to crazy with the body just a whole new respray on the car, same colour as what it is the paints all faded and the bloke who owned it before me isnt a spray painter and decided to try and spray the bodykit and random sections of the car with s**t quality spray paint so its all bubbling up and flaking off besides my dads a spray painter by trade so won't be costing me anything in labour! lol ah i dont mind xhp jets or the anz mayhem rims.. not to sure yet

Very nice EF you got there mate!! Nice colour, the kit suits it pretty well and sits well on the 16" FTR's. The VN bonnet bulge kinda looked good on it i reckon.

Haha i was gonna suggest losing the rear spoiler/wing and just leaving it spoilerless :P. I reckon that would of looked nice.

All you need now is just a nice big oval or twin exhaust tip to finish the exhaust off. Or twin dump tips :twisted:

You guys are crazy. It was funny though, the stupid C*** even parodys himself.

The EF looks much better without the VN bulge, looked wrong. Be sure to get pics up after its all painted.
