Mate of mine has a crashed (front damage - he bought it that way) AU that we're repairing. It looks like that a BA front panel assembly (i.e. bonnet, lights, bumper and guards) will bolt straight on.

Anyone done this? Will it bolt straight on, or are there hidden differences.....

Any advice appreciated

not a bolt on job.
radiator support is different along with a chunk of the metal behind it.
there are threads around that have covered it with pics etc.

Thanks for that. I have done a search but had no luck in finding a thread with anything in it. Could you please post up a link or two if you can remember where the threads are.
