Apparently you need new headlights, wings, bonnet, bumper (and the grills and foglights etc.) but the original front panel can be used :)

Slam panel needs changing as far as i remember. Someone else wanted to do it but couldn't find a cheap enough bonnet nearby.

All you need is the wings and slam panel. Go for it. Your nearly there. The slam panel is the bit of metal when you open the bonnet directly in front of you. With your chassis number on it.
You need this because the headlights are different and the bolt to this. The whole job is bolt on so is not actualy that bad even though it looks a mission. Your most important tool is a T30 torx socket bit. And a small rachet. Try gaybay for the wings and slam panel or eb spares or somewhere like that. Go for it mate your so nearly there. :)

I have the same parts as you so far, the bonnet was a wounding £300 from an alfa dealer.

Apparently you dont need the slam panel as its exactly the same.

I just need the wings and the inserts for the fog lights (cant find them anywhere) maybe another trip to the dealer.

Currently fitting Valeo projection lenses and a HID kit to my new £180 headlights (not paying £600 for alfa ones!!). I'll post up pics soon.

Good luck with the conversion, if you decide not to go ahead with it drop me a pm because I'll take the bits off you (as many as funds allow anyway) :thumbs:
