Damn!!! Conversion looks good in white.

I always thought you had to swap out the fenders also with this front end. What parts did you actually swap? Hood? Front Bumper?

Thanks Terry!

Stock fenders & hood will work with HSV E2 / E3 front bar, so you would only need to get a "bonnet garnish" to cover the twin indents on the nose of the hood.

I would love to get my hands on some OEM HSV guards (fenders), but they are tough to come across, especially when you have to pony up more $$ for the guard inserts, signal lamps, and mesh (and, of course.... shipping).

Would you be willing to disclose how much this conversion ended up costing you? You can send me a PM if you want.

That's an awesome looking Ute. Why didn't they bring those to the US again?
