Reverting back to original? Ep82 mk2 mk3 frontend?

Recommended Posts

Recently picked up a ep82 Gt turbo which I believe is a mk2 (L reg with boot lid having the non light up reflective panel). Previous owner says it has a mk3 front end conversion. I like to keep things oem and don’t particularly like the “look” of quad lights so looking to go back to original.

can anyone confirm to me that oem would indeed be the square lights and not the quads. What else will need to be changed to be back to oem? I’m thinking front bumper and grill? (I plan to keep the gi bonnet) 

what would have been done wiring wise to use this mk3 front and can it be easily returned back?

Yeah it'll be square lamps if it's a Mk2. Which L Reg indicates that.

Interior is distinct in the MK2's

 

Looks like you'll need a Mk2 Grill too. ALso also, looks like your bumper has been modified, so for that OEM goodness you need a new Mk2/3 bumper.

What within the interior is it that’ll confirm mk2?

So mk2 and mk3 bumpers are the same?

any knowledge on the wiring side of things?

all slam panels the same?

The definitive way to check is via the VIN. I believe TGTT has all the production  codes from the associated VIN.

Sweet cheers, I’m guessing the parts I need won’t be to easy to find

if anyone wants to trade mk3 for mk2 front end chuck me a pm, or if anyone has the lights/bumper/grill they want to sell let me know

Quad lights all day :) as said good luck finding the MK1/2 front end bits and when you do be sure to take a cushion for the ride home :crazy:

They can be had. I sold a set of square lamps last year for like £50. I'm sure you'll find the bits you need. Getting an unchopped bumper may be hard.
