    Hey, peoples.

    I've searched high and low, and haven't come up with much.

    I'm after a VX V8 Supercar style front bar. I'm aware that there are VT ones avalable, but I've yet to see a VX one. I realise there isn't much difference between them, but does a VX-specific one exist?

    Some links or contact details would be greatly appreciated.

    If not, has anyone successfully modified a VT one to suit the VX headlights?

    Thanks in advance.

    I got the V8 supercar bar VT style tho wen i got mine and went and got a few quotes 2 get it dun alot of panel beaters and spray painters said most of the fake V8 supercar bar r actually of the VX style 2 suit the head lights and u can notice a join in the fibre glass where they have patched them up so they suit the VTs mine doesnt have this tho im assuming theres a few out there from them sayin that if not mayb find a fake and cut out the lights from the join i cant see how that wouldnt work.

    with modifing the lights its easy as pretty much just unbolt and plug in ay

    No, I meant modifying a VT front bar to suit the VX headlights. Not, swapping the VX ones for VT ones.
