'Face lifting' an older Doblo ??

Hello all.....just found and joined your little corner of the interweb ! Seems like a lively place !

Now....Been looking for a 'high roof' Doblo mpv for quite a while now. I think that I may have found a suitable candidate,but........it's the older type front. I like the look of the '06 on type front end better (but can't seem to get one of these at the right price ! (Tight Yorkshireman here ! lol).
So......Can I fit the later front end panels and headlight arrangement onto an older style car,please ?? Apart from the obvious,is there anything specific that I should be watching out for,that will have to be changed ?? Anyone done this in the past ?? Talk to me ,people !

Yeah, Scott wrote an excellent thread all about the many mods he's made, including the facelift front end and a suede dash!

That's me!!!! ) you can't put bits on now and rest later. All in one go, doubt you will find all the parts easily! Just get on eBay and get notifications on new listings for 2006 doblo breaking and just get in there first! I payed about 400 all in and even sold the front end I had for 350 new van look for 50 is nice!!

You need

Bonnet
Wings (don't forget indicator lenses)
Headlights (don't forget connectors)
Headlight trims
Slam panel
Bumper
Grill
Fog lights (connectors too)
(Don't forget to swap your vin plate)

About 5 hours to do and I'm no mechanic!
