Ugly - Was just stating that a plain EF/EL fairmont front end isn't as pretty as an XR / Ghia front end - no malice intended to your Bitsa :lol:

LSD - Chrome inserts mainly...sorry, I should have been more explicit earlier :

The EF Fairmont front end is too similar to the EF Fairmont Ghia front end - ie they have no distinguishing differences other than a different colour grille AFAIK (standard are grey or black - EF Fairmont Ghias got the Chrome?).

The EL Fairmont front end is the same as a standard EF Fairmont front end although the grille is different - the EL having a chrome outer with a different plastic inner. However the EL Fairmont Ghia front ends got the chrome inserts in the front bumper moulds as well as a colour coded 'inner' part of the grille.

Sure, they're subtle differences and if you've got an EF Fairmont, you can easily turn it into an EL Fairmont / Ghia with little fuss (I think bottlejack or blackjackoriginal did this conversion?) - as we all know, the bonnet, lights and bumpers are the same with the provision for the NF/NL/DF/DL cornering lamps etc.

**Anywaaaay** Back on topic (lol) - Amber...why not do an XR conversion instead ? As it has been said, you already have the bonnet, all you need are the lights and the bar ! I know everyone's after $$$ for the XR front ends...but it may be cheaper than changing to a Fairmont front end if you add the cost of respraying a fairmont bonnet (given no fairmonts came out in Le Mans red as you know).

Is Jase able to source parts for ya's ?
