XF to Longreach, Front End Coversion????

Hey guys,
i was wondering if anyone could help with a conversion from an XF ute to a Longreach ute (Longreach Front End).
Im thinking that the body and rear panels are quite similar except for the rear bar, the two front quarter panels, the headlights, the bonnet and the front bar.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is a straight bolt on with the panels or if some driling is needed.
As my XF already has a few modifications, i would like to put an aftermarket front bar (front bodykit) on, instead of the stock Longreach bar. Could anyone tell me a place to find a front bodykit. I have already found some, at Sydney Special Vehicles, but they only have bars to suit EL falcons. Would an EL front bar fit my ute? I have noticed that the lights on the EL are very similar to those on the Longreach. If not, does anyone know what the rough price would be to have an EL bar modified to fit??
Thankyou very much.
Guy

xf 02 is right. Firewall foreward the XH is the same as the E series. It would require a lot of modification to fit the XH front to an XF

WHich model longreach do you want to use?
XG is the same as the XF, the XH was the EF looking one, which was different from the firewall forward, and is Spot welded in.

Kerry I would say he has to be talking XH, otherwise what panel swapping is there to do?

Thats what i was thinking mate, but just checking.
If you want to put an XH front on, its a big job.
Easier to buy an XH.
