Hi All,

 

Currently restoring  a 1973 ish, it will be painted in Ford Deep Impact Pearl Blue with Metallic Black Roof.

 

When I bought the mini, it was already de-bumpered on the front and wish to keep that look however I do not know which grille would suit it best. - mk3 or mk1 (with our without the grill surround?). 

 

On the back it will have a mk3 rear lights (no reverse lights) and the boot lid would not have the number plate light.  I will be using LED bolts for the number plate. 

 

 

Can you kindly help ?? Also a couple of photos please :)

Mk1 looks great on a debumpered front end but youll need to remove the bonnet lip to match
