This is my 1992 Fairmont. It has apart from the obvious EL XR front end, a Sony Scorcher rear bumper(fitted after photo), HM stainless extractors, 2.5 inch exhaust system, K&N filter, lowered using pedders shortened struts up front and have also fitted 17X8.5 ROH ZS rims.(I want 18's).

cool

The car looks great mate, very unique.

It'll confuse the hell out of alot of people. Could you imagine speeding in that and a cop from behind doing a speed check warns a cop further ahead to pull over a EB/ED Falcon.

How much did the conversion cost?

How 'bout some more pics and details!!! :thumbup:

It cost around $5000 all up.
Its actually been done for almost 2 years, I'm quite bored with it now. Gonna start winding up the motor(or rebuild one).

She's a beaut mate, and with a Windsor donk it's even better. BTW like your sig there, i totally agree a Saleen S351 would be just sweet and will kill anything in a drag.

sweet ride mate

Got any pics of the conversion. Is it all bolt on stuff, or do you need to do major cut up job??

Nah, its not a bolt on job. Inner subframe skirts, radiator support panel and battery plate from an EL need to be welded in. THEN the fun starts. Headlight wiring requires additional circuit, main aircon hose needs to be specially made to marry up EB compressor to EL condensor/dryer. Fan shroud needs to either be replaced or very carefully modified. Electric arial from the EB was as good as gone too. Just those little things that build up, you know. This is a pic of the old girl before the change over.
