You'll prolly want some round headlamps and their mounts too.

No problem,I figured it was a language thing.
Hood=Bonnet
Fender=guard
Trunk=Boot
Sounds British to us Yanks..:lol:

Op,
The hood to cowl doesn't match up..

Reminds me that I need to start looking for fenders and a flat hood and a lower radiator support.

All 3 pcs of the radiator supports & yoke 86 + are tack welded together.
Like I say you heed the whole front clip.

As has been said, you basically need to replace the entire front end of the car and even then, it still won't look right. Really not worth the expense considering it will just lower the resale value of your car.

Belive it or not, I have seen Volvo Semi trucks Known as White GMC with 240 headlights. And some have had a 7" round light instead. Just uses a different headlight bucket and surround.
My photobucket is down, look at the links
