I see you have changed tack Josh.

Good luck with this one, it looks like a nice base to begin with.

That is a am cb radio i put in place of the ash tray witch ill be taking out some time in the future

it is on gas and the thing under the steering wheel is a electric break controler iinstalled s i can opperate the electric breaks on my work trailer.

unfortunatly my lane is a 6 but having said that i am saving for an XR8 ute so i dont mind having a 6 in the lane

ill keep it in mind mate but they are not foggies they come on when your headlights are on and indicate right the right one comes on and lights the corner up so you can see where you are turning and turns off again after the indicator turns off

I just bought one of these couple days ago myself, will have to start thread on it in next couple days

IMO you would completely devalue a fairlane by sticking an XR front on it, i have seen one with the twin light conversion though, these lights just bolt in place of ones you have now without need of changing front bars. bonnets etc

I have already bolted in super low front and standard lowered rear lovells with koni adjustables sitting on 17" XR8 copy rims, sits really nice IMO
Will post some pics up in next couple days so you can see what they sit like

Hi tickxr

I dont know what headlights you are reffering to mate but i am talking about doing a full xr front conversion front bar, headlights, bonnet and indicators as explaind in this thread

http://www.fordmods.com/forums/EF-EL-XR ... n-d60.html

your lane is it a I6 or a V8? I am looking forward to seeing your thead and see some pics of your lane

Thanks for your reply

Josh

the lights Tickxr is referring to are made by a company called twinlight, they do the XR style lights whilst retaining the rest of your front end, so you keep the lane grille bar bonnet etc but get the twin lights at the front, they aren't a bad option and if you source the lights yourself can be quite a bit cheaper then an XR conversion
