Fiddling with the front end.



  '04 Clio 1.6
Apologies if this sort of thing has already been touched upon before, but I'd like your guys opinions/experience. I also apologise for any mis-used terms, Im pretty new to this Clio lark!

Im looking to switch the front bumper of my mk2 ph2 with a 2.0, however I've been told about some issues in regards to the width. A friend of mine (who had done it to his Clio previously before he sold it) explained about cutting down the new front end and fibre glassing it to fit. This idea, Im not overly keen on but has worked but he also suggested buying newer wheel arches which also widen out to compensate, in which the bumper should fit. And will also give clearance for the sport wheels Im looking to purchase as well.

What do you guys reckon though? Is it better to cut to fit or go all out and replace the wheel arches alongside the front as well?

its not the wheel arches mate its the front wings so that the car fits,

i wouldnt know about clearance with the wheels though as im on standard wings with 7J rims,

but anyway it would probably be cheaper to change the wings than modify the sport bumper to fit the standard wings.

either way the skirts are a must ;)

Ah yeah front wings sorry that's what I meant hehe! And yeah I'm also looking into side skirts. Nothing daft just something nice to cover up the black strips under the car which is visible.
