Hello and welcome,

Theres a fair amount involved outside of the items you listed.

From what i understand, even witha mk3 facelift You will still need to weld the newer 'out rigger' pieces onto the end of the upper chassis section.

A mk3 facelift and mk4 front will involve the same amount of work, see my video below to get an idea of the work involved going for the mk4 front.

The 4 top 1/4 panel or guard mounts can be ordered separately as can the lower headlight mounting bracket.
Both get welded to the vehicle.

The 'outrigger' end piece cannot be ordered on its own, despite having it's own part number. It comes complete with the upper rail section, you will then need to separate and modify it to suit a retrofit

Not at all a requirement.

I've kept the Mk3 doors. The sharper swage line on the Mk4 guard don't align with the Mk3 doors exactly.

But I would suggest it's worth living with, unless you happen to have 2 complete Mk4 doors handy to swap onto your mk3
