Front end swap advice!!

Post by HiJetSi on Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:20 pm

Hello,

Can you swap the front end of a newer style hijet with the older squarer style?

I imagine it would be bumper, lights, and grill to swap?

Is this possible as I prefer the older style front end to the newer one Very Happy

Radiators are different,

and so are the lower metal radiator bumper supports.

But yeah you could do it.

Just have to do a bit of a conversion on the coolant system.

8bit-ash knows more as he did a bit of playing in that direction.

Yeah, never got round to it in the end as the guy I was getting the bits off scrapped the van before I had a chance. The rad will poke below the old bumper if you change it. I was going t do a bit of bodgery and fit a splitter to over come this problem. lights and stuff will need changing too if you don't want it to look odd.
