grilles

Hrm, I've been wondering what else I can do to make my Fairmont look a bit different (mind you the car is completely stock at the moment, im just trying to gather funds for mods)

The question at hand is do I want to change the grille from the Fairmont grille to something else.

The first obvious choice is to change it and replace for the Fairlane grille, which I'd be satisfied with if it was the go, they look good, and as DROOOZ's car explains, it makes the car look a lot tougher.

Second to that, I had to raise the question, is an EL GT grille obtainable, and would it be able to be fitted to my Fairmont? What do you guys think it would look like.. a lowered fairmont, with 17's, tint, all the usuals, and an EL GT grille? I reckon it'd look alright, and a bit original.

But now its your vote :)

First:

EL Fairlane Grille


EL GT Grille


EL Fairmont Grille

Re: grilles

I like it, it would look better on a barker colour, i've seen a white EF/L fairmont wagon with an ELGT grill, it had SVO rims and a nice bodykit.
It looked very sweet.
