    Default Pre Facelift Conversion...

    Just as a matter of interest.......

    Could a pre-facelift model be converted to a facelift model. ??

    Would it be a simple case of swapping.........

    a) Bonnet
    b) Grill
    c) Headlight Units
    d) Front Bumper
    e) Front Body Wings
    f) Front fog lights etc

    Just wondered how much hassle it would be......? and roughly how much it would cost including fitting..

    don't see why not!

    what's up Spoons are you seeing sense over the old "pre-facelift is better looking than the facelift" argument??!

    i'm only joking mate, i know you wouldn't considering putting your front end under the knife.

    Something I thought about doing, I was told that there are a few more differences underneath the front as well and probably wasn`t possible ... looks like it could be done though, I have seen an MG zr160 done ....

    Possible yes as I thought about it on my Vec.

    You will also need headlight panel as the mounting points are different.

    it can be done
    you could need a lot of parts if you wanted to do this look for a car in a brakers an buy the front end off them you could swap a few of the bits

    I think the inner wings could be an issue?
