    What do you mean newer version?

    If you mean putting an 8p bumper on an 8l you will be bombarded with abuse

    By more recent type you must mean the 8P chassis bumper and grille...

    There are aftermarket kits available but quite frankly they look awful and I hate to say it you will get a right 'grilling' (pun intended) on here for doing it...
