Re: trafic facelift

Hi Mick, and welcome.

In all honesty, if it's just plastics, brightwork and lights that are different - then it should be fine, you may need to be inventive with bracketry, but you should be able to get it to fit.

Facelifts, are by dint a quick & easy (read cheap) way to update a vehicle's look, and the most expensive parts to change are the chassis/floorpan and any metal panels - the plastic & glasswork is usually made to fit the metalwork, rather than the other way about.

I presume you have a complete donor vehicle to source these items?

interesting project, post some pics and keep us updated - these vans are very scarce now.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
