MG ZR Front End

Home Up



This is where the project really starts.... i wanted the newer MG ZR front look, so i decided to do it myself :) I purchased a Rover 25 front panel, wings & headlamps. Also a MG ZR front bumper..

This is the process so far....

The start.

Front view.

Front side.

First the bumper comes off......

..along with the wings....

...and headlamps.

Next off is the front panel.

I done this by grinding off the spot welds.

Leaves it pretty open dont you think.

Found lots of surface rust and welding wire in there!

Engine out along with front subframe.

Rear subframe and rack out.

Lots of space to work around.

Needs a good clean.

T16 rear subframe and rack, painted.

These are some pictures of my progress.
