pridtr: the xr bonnet;- isnt it the same as the ef xr bonnet? i mean the current bonnet i have?.. the interior cost me $1500, velvet seats, power windows etc etc. (doors included). with the wheels, yeah i know every other person has one, but i want the car as "stockish" looking as possible, aka SLEEPER :o) if you know what i mean. i was also thinkin to get them polished back (like on the trueblueford site/vistors car). otherwise im considering the 17"s EB GT replica's from some tyre place in syd. but the problem is im lowered and i drive quite hard often and 17's will get bent/twisted from the tyre having such a small sidewall to protect it from my psychoness and bumps on the road!..
how much did the front end etc cost you? without spray painting it.
ando: the body kit, FROM ford, costs under $1600 for the full kit including wing or $1175 from canberra car styling, not fited/nor sprayed, it cost maybe 200-500 to get it sprayed (depending who u know), and you can fit it yourself.
there isnt a significant difference between the xr and a ef to much to make me wanna go "i want and xr" front end/lights look wicked, but other then that, you can go to higgin bottons or whatever their called, spend the $3000 and get a supercharger or other mods which would give u more power then an xr. :)
anyhow, if anyone knows where i can grab a cheap front end from would be appreciated :)
