I'm not sure what you are talking about but I think its the same thing as AUII XR's have too. stops the tires cutting themselves on arches.

PS: you mean EB GT?

SORRY, YES EB.
THE EYEBROWS ARE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ARCH, AS OPPOSED TO THE AU/AUII, WERE THEY ARE MORE OF A LINER. ON THE SPRINT THEY JUST KEEP THE TYRE INSIDE THE ARCH, CHEAP WAY OF FLARING THE GUARDS.

HI KON
THE FORD DEALERS THAT I HAVE BEEN TO HAVE SAID THAT YOU HAVE TO GO AFTERMARKET, BUT THE ONLY ONES YOU CAN GET AFTERMARKET ARE THE ONES FROM A VN SS GPA, WHICH ARE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT.

Just a longshot, but Phase Autos (just round the corner from Fords in Melbourne) might be able to help. Phase Autos used to fabricate and paint the Fibreglass bits and pieces when Tickfords first started modifying the EBs.
Anyway Their contact No is (03)9357-9534 and please don't use the VN part - you'll only slow the XR down HO HO!!

Thanks for the info but luckily I'm not in need of any at the moment. Just wondered where I would go if need be.
