    Hi guys,

    The reason im asking all these paint codes ect are that a guy intown is selling a VF clubsport front end for $500 bucks and he has said that it will fit straight on besides from me having someone to respray the correct colour a auto sparkie for the wiring. Does anyone know whether it willfit striaght on?

    Buy a legit HSV if you want the HSV front.

    paint codes are the same,
    you will not have any wiring or buttons for foglights, DLR work differently on hsv, proximity sensors spring to mind.

    DRL's are sorted and require a professional and a special wiring harness. Fog lights are also able to be. Converted as JHP sells a kit. I dont see why so much hate? Yes its not a HSV (im also not displaying HsV badges). I would not buy if i didnt have a clue on how everything will work. I have confirmed with multiple specialists and HDV resellers. Think of it as buying a genuine body kit. I am a P plater and no time soon will i be legal to drive a V8. Just a thought.

    Still plenty cheaper than a Gen F Clubby though eh?

    To the OP, if you like the idea go for it!

    TBH in the small town i working it, im only paying 2 cartons for the paint (does by a professional as he owes me for business jobs) and what ever the sparkie charges to hook the harness up. Labour to install it is 0 as i will do myself. Only a few screws. But haters will hate. I will let yous know how much i spend and will take photos once i complete.

    I was gunna say, $500 buy it and it's an automatic win. An unpainted HSV bumper is atleast $2200 new.

    With those kinds of cost with the install go ahead mate. Make your car your own with a personalise touches.

    Not trolling, I'm just interested what the blue is on your car? Is it tape, paint or something else?
    Certainly unique mate.

    No need to close it, we just need to keep it on topic so you get the answers.

    Hi mate,

    I have done the whole hsv conversion thing before and there may be a few hidden suprises.

    I would just make sure its a straight swap and that you won't have to change any headlights, guards, bumpers, bonnet lip (dunno if vf have one cbf looking at them ) or the bonnet. If all is good go ahead and smash it on.

    Also make sure its legit as $500 is pretty cheap and the guy might be doing a dodgy. Good luck

    Yeah thought the name sounded familiar. Might be a shame to discard the SV6 front end considering the glow tape cost quite a bit, unless you had any left over.

    Where'd you get the glow tape from?
