Anyone one got MK2 bumpers on a MK1?

Has anyone got MK2 bumpers fitted to a MK1? If so, could you put some photos up?

Thanks

Thanks Jas

It looks okay from that angle, is this your car and did it look out of place from other angles at all?

Anyone with a Mk2 front on a Mk1? I only ask as they are seemingly easier to find than Mk1's.

Mk2 front bumpers look very very wrong on a mk1. The angles look odd.

You can get away with the mk2 rear bumper on a mk1 no problem, but for me, id keep the original mk1 rear bumper.

Ok, so I need a Mk1 Turbo bumper, not much chance of that! Yeah I'm quite happy with the rear as it is.

It was my original Uno and it looked good with the mk2 rear bumper from all angles in my eyes...so much so in fact that I considered fitting a mk2 rear to my current mk1. The only slight issue with mk2 rear on a mk1 is that the std mk1 tail pipe doesn't exit in quite the right place for the mk2 bumper's cut-out so needed a bit of fiddling/bending to get it right.

Mine had a Mk2 Bumper on the front, didnt really like the look. It did fit, kind of but it was a bit too angular and sharp than the Mk1. So after some moaning and whinging from the guys on here I managed to get a Mk1 back on there.

I know of a place in italy which has a mk1 bumper for sale but its not cheap over 300 euro,

you can however have them restored by a bodyshop if you find a old tatty one,

imo mk1 should have mk1 bumpers and mk2's should have mk2 bumpers they dont look right when mis matched

Did you mean Mk1 should have Mk1 and Mk2 should have Mk2? Smile
