Mk7 to mk 8 front end conversion?

Postby chrisw2214 » Wed Sep 21, 2022 9:42 pm

Has anyone ever done a mk 7 to mk8 conversion ? Basically I was involved in an accident and I need everything from doors forwards looks like the van is going to be total loss so looking to buy it back and repair myself but wondered if anyone had ever done this conversion so I can start collecting parts?

Ok it’s a mk6 but no much difference to the mk7.

Woah thats definitely some work gone onto that to make it look so different not as straight forward as I was hoping for :lol: :lol: thanks for all the input the guys appreciate the replys gues it's just going back to standard mk7 unless any cool ideas to make it look at bit more sportier. Its a panther black mk7 limited

Be interested to see the finished and full build must have been a LOT of work.

I’d like to see it finished but no updates since 2020.
