Re: Poll: The Red Nosed Falcon

I being the brother who owns this car, am also not really sure about my front grill.
Some people think it's crap others don't, it'd be good to see what you guys think.

Thanks

Oh yeah!

Re: Poll: The Red Nosed Falcon

Hmmm, it's not exactly ugly or anything, but I think the original grill would look better.

Re: Poll: The Red Nosed Falcon

Gives It A Bit Of Extra Character.
No Point Having Something Everyone Else Has Got.
Either Leave It, Or Go Chrome. Then Again Maybe Black Would Look Even Better

Re: Poll: The Red Nosed Falcon

Drill out some holes , wack in a few LED's and set them to chaser mode.
If it looks worse you can always refit the original one. Executive vs Ricer??

Re: Poll: The Red Nosed Falcon

hehe... we don't have an original one, cos that's a fairmont and we bought the xr front separately and the grill came painted red. we looked for a silver one first, but beggers can't be choosers.

c'mon guys.. break the tie! i wanna see a landslide!!
