Re: bonnet issue: part II

um, so you mean put an EL mont front onto a car and keep the standard EL bonnet?

If so - wont work.

Also, EL XR is actually an EF Gli bonnet. Apart from the Fairmont, Fairlane and XR, all other EL bonnets are the same. 99% sure they are anyway.

too slow..............for now

Re: bonnet issue: part II

Nope, monty bonnet is different to Gli/Futura bonnet. XR bonnet is EF bonnet, as back2thefutura said.

You can use an EF/EL monty bonnet, not sure on Fairlane/LTD bonnets, they might be longer.

EF/EL mont and NF-NL / DF-DL all use the same front panels, guards, lights etc etc
