LTD conversion on XD-XF

Hi guys, just wondering how hard it is to do a LTD panel+grille conversion on a XD-XF Falcon? Im ssuming the rear is the same apart from teh lights and the front just needs the lights and grille changed? Any panels, or front bar? How to go about it.

Thanks

Re: LTD conversion on XD-XF

I'd say just get an LTD front end and bolt it on - that's what I did to put the ZC Fairlane front end on the XY ute...

Re: LTD conversion on XD-XF

front end will bolt on. front doors are the same, rear doors are longer on the LTD and i dont know if the lights will fit straight in on the back.

Re: LTD conversion on XD-XF

ltd tail lights wont fit, doors are the same if my ,memory srves me corrct, front panels will fit,

to do the tail lights, u need to cut the ltd rear and transplant it on the x seriies rear.... bit job, and ltd lights are expensive, tinted ones are 500 bux a set if u can find a good set, although you can get the tail light glass, and mgiht be able to get it plastic welded on, we used to repair the ltd ones at fairmonts gear

Re: LTD conversion on XD-XF

Yeah, im really keen on the rear lights, they look so much better than Fairlane/Falcon lights. Glad the front is easy. Did you work at Fairmont Ghia near Huntingdale MadWoG? I was there the other day getting brakelines.

Re: LTD conversion on XD-XF

i USED to work there, but i know the mechanic, and hte boss really well....

the mechanic used to b a bouncer at viper and stuff....

the rear doors the windws are differetn.... the triangle on the falcon rear door is a proper triangle, on the f'lane the trinange is 1" longer or sumthing.... measure, both doors are the same size physically..

Re: LTD conversion on XD-XF

I have seen the LTD lights on the rear of an XD, but it cost him a fair amount to get it modded.
The LTD front will bolt on and lookse Sexy, with the Grill extended through the Bumper..
