it would be very difficult as the front half of the wings mounting points are diffrent and the 02 wings are plastic so you cant weld them the bumper is much larger as well so the front may not all be lined up together.. best just sticking to good old strong steel..
could be done but hard.
All Mk.2 Clios have plastic wings,it would just be a case of swapping the wings,bumper,headlights and bonnet from the facelift.
