    It's not the same shape though mate. At the top especially the bonnet wouldn't meet the top of the grill.

    no dont do it will not fit and you will wreck it , you have to go full conversion im afraid , unless you change the bonnet it may work then but you might aswell go the full hog then and do a proper job

    if you want the cheap option , vinyl rap the middle section in black and the grill then when you wack the plate back on it will look ok , thats the cheapest option for the look you want
