Hey guys I know it's a long shot but does anyone have a mk1 round light grill they would be willing to sell before I buy a new Magnum one. Anything considered!

    I make the inserts to order which convert the old square light grill to round, the job to convert them takes an arvo . The thing is once done neatly, it's hard to tell the difference from a few feet away. If interested I can load pics

    Here's my kit, tho the plates that the bucket screws to is optional extra

    Next is to trim away the square part of the grill

    After that you get them lined up and trim to suit as you go, clamp in place, check, and mark it so you know where it sits best

    The next step is to apply glue of some type, I use resin mixed with talc to make a paste and sets in 1hr or so, polyurethane also works but not sure of it's paintable properties

    Some light sanding/filler and paint, job done 👍
    Just to add this edit.. I took a mold from a real round light grill some 20yrs ago and the first grill I converted is still going strong .
    The backing plates are also molded from a rust repair panel but some tin cut and riveted/welded will do fine .
    Price of grill inserts per pair is $110 Inc post

    that is a neat solution mate but I think I would rather a genuine or aftermarket grill as the car is a bit 'showey'
