    Yes all complete Dan just waiting on a new rear tailgate panel the small one I will upload photos very soon

    1 Complete front end upgrade including wiper panel as these are rigid on later models and have rubber ends on early models

    2 Complete rear end conversion including all lights and clear side lights


    3 Very easy to do can be completed within a day

    4 The most expensive part is the spraying and then the front headlights i got all the bits of ebay

    04/05 parts

    You will need front headlights plus bumper probably best to get a bumper without the fog light holes as foglights and surround cost appprox £120 which can be saved if you buy the correct bumper you will then need a rear bumper cover and both sets of rear lights and rear tailgat panel clear indicators on the sides to finish it off

    If you need any advice please email via Forum Thanks Mupley

    Hi, i've just completed this upgrade today on my 98 freelander. I have got two headlamp wiring connectors from a rover 75 which fit great however - I have worked out which wires do what from the car and partially stripped the new headlamps so I can connect the wires from the headlamps to the old wiring from the car, I can't get sidelights to work and when main beam is on the indicaters glow!!! Anyone done this conversion who can tell me which colour fits to where I'd be very grateful!

    Not if you're handy with an angle grinder!!! :)
    Mine broke just as was starting the job (typical) so all I had was a hacksaw which did the job perfectly. The new headlamps are bigger and won't fit into the recesses in the old front panel so you just need to make them larger. I took about 2 inch from 2/3 of the bottom and they fit fine. Still having a nightmare wiring them up though!!! Is it possible to get the two blacks mixed up?
