Fairlane front on an XF Van

Post by Ramble on 26/7/2009, 4:42 am

My young bloke wants to put the ZL or ZJ Fairlane front on his XF van. Has anybody here done this or does anybody know if these will fit without to much modifying. I dont know much about the fords scratch

Pretty sure its all bolt on for XF to LTD/Fairlane.
I did XD to ZL and I know for sure the top radiator support panel was only non-bolt up that needs to change.

XF should be straight swap of bits.

Thank for that guys,
Now the hunt is on for a CHEAPIE fairlane so he can get a few extra luxury fittings as well as the front.

I paid $308 for a ZL that fixed my XF van after the fire, the only difference between ZL Fairlane and FE LTD is the grille, if you fit the power windows to the van keep the back door window motors for spares, you'll need them. Sorry to the guys that have had to endure these FORD pics before but his son needs inspiration and us non-white XF owners need to stick together

If you dont want to have 4 switches on the drivers door you can use the back door handle off the drivers side. Also i have the dash and door trims and console out of a ZL fairlane that I have decided not to use that I would be willing to sell.
