You'd have to change your whole front headlight assembly because the XR's and the T Series obviously have different headlight setups. Maybe just try modifying your existing bar?

Don't loose the XR front. Thats why you buy one. Do like i did to my Series 3 Au XR6. T3 skirts, rear bar and rear wing, and the pursuit lip. Looks good. Hotdbz's car is the same. Only better

If you could find someone to do plastic welding, a bit of cutting & joining would combine the T3 lower with the XR headlights. Perhaps it's worth having a play with Photoshop to see what it would turn out like first, if you are not able to do that I'm sure if you asked in the Photoshop Forum there would be plenty of people who would have a go for you. Check it out thoroughly before diving in, but don't be afraid to do something different!

i had the same idea a few months back and approached sydney special vehicles to run my ideas past them and they were pretty keen on the idea but said they would need to find a couple of bars they could cut up and try to join together and that they would need somebody with a donor au xr series falcon that would let them have it for a while so they could get it to fit the vehicle right. from what they said it would be a fairly costly exercise somewhere in the region of $1,000 dollars just for the bar without paint for fitting.
on the photoshop side of things here is a pic that was posted by Falkeen a while back of an au xr with half a t3 lower bumper. hope its what you were after.


IF IT AIN'T BIG ENOUGH STROKE IT.

5 speed xr8 ,silouette in colour,17in tickford 5 spokes , momo steering wheel and momo gear knob. twin 2 1/2 inch exhaust with race magnum mufflers. custom stereo system.
