    Default Facelift conversion

    Well managed to start my facelift front end conversion today, got most of it done, but it started to bloomin rain lol...and then got to dark, so just got to wrestle with them wing brackets where the bumper clips in, and a few other little bits, didnt get any decent pics as my camera died as i took the 3rd pic, but you get the idea, what you guys think.......

    before


    and after

    In a nutshell: new wings, bonnet, bumper, headlights, slam panel (I think) and lots of other small bits to attach it all on to. Quite a few people have done it on here mate, do a search and it should bring up lots of threads with more details...

    you will need to source a new bonnet, front wings, bumper, grille, headlights, i was lucky to get my parts already in star silver, you will also need a few other bits like bonnet stays etc but there only pence from vauxhall
