I'm after the little panel on the Tickford rear skirt on an EL XR8 that fills in the hole left when you take off a towbar.

Also after a brand spanking new ambient air sensor for climate control for an EL Fairmont Ghia.

Any help would be appreciated

I can get it painted for free I just need one.

Why are they so rare? Every XR rear skirt that has a tow ball must have the blank plate somewhere?

I might just have to cough up the big dollars from Ford.

I'm ringing Ford now and getting a price....................and the price is.........

Just rung two different Ford specialist wreckers and they dont have them either.

Looks like they are as rare as rocking horse s**t.

Tim....are you after one for the standard XR6 bumper? Or do you want one for an EL rear skirt kitted falcon? Reason I ask is I have a towpack on my XR, so I have a like brand new (but painted in regency) towbar section for the std rear bar that I may/probably will be willing to part with soonish.

Like I said in a previous post elsewhere, I'm looking for an EF XR6 kit, which will have a towball 'cover' part so I wont need the std bar one anymore once fitted.

FTR-XR6 its actually the rear skirt from an EL XR8 (larger one) not the standard bumper. I've got the standard bumper one but it doesnt fit.

Its damn near impossible to get one.

If anyone manages to fiind one please let me know.

Take the car to a plastic welders, and have them fill the hole, if it is a factory kit, and you are looking good. I take it that you have no interest in ever fitting a tow kit...

No interest at all. I took the heavy duty tow kit off it thats why I got a hole.
