Mk3 pre facelift front end conversion

Post by Caddy2899 » Mon Nov 04, 2019 8:58 am

How’s things all. I’m new to the forum and just finding my way around. Can anybody tell me will a facelifted front end for onto the old shape 1.9 caddy mk3 and is it a big job to convert. Will the bonnet lights wings and bumpers swap over easily

Hi, welcome to the forum.
Which facelift front are you thinking, 2010-2015 or 2015+?
Both are possible, neither are particularly easy.

Cheers mateI’m thinking 2010-2015 it looks to be an easier conversion and cheaper, I might well be wrong though. There is a rear ended caddy near me at the moment in the same colour
