Replacing 2000 megane bonnet?

Hi All,

as the title suggests, i'm thinking about swapping out the bonnet on my megane...

The story goes, I had a cheap but cheerful 2000 megane in cherry red which i bought for 200... After covering 18000 miles and an unfortunate swipe with a transit van in central london, she has seen better days!

Anyway, a week or two ago I was window shopping at the local independent garage, when i spotted a 2000 megane in cherry red, full mot and 3 months tax, clutch replaced 10 months ago and part S/H for 500. I couldn't resist!!

So, I now have 2 meganes, and the plan is to put together one top notch car out of the two I have

The new car has some minor chipping and peeling, and a 5p sized rust spot on the bonnet. What i'm wondering is - how difficult am I going to find it to swap the bonnet over (I'm relatively new to all this!)

All advice greatly received, and parts may be forthcoming in the near future
Currently in Domseraph's garage:
2000 Renault Megane 1.6 16v Sport Alize
