sailor Regular & SVT fenders for the MkI are the same.

Availability of an SVT front bumper is prob. WORSE than the Mk1.5 SAP, though those that are avail. generally get advertised more. Neither is avail. new now.

First post details the swap well, quite a bit to change over. Washer bottle is the only "internal" part swapped.

HocusFocus So, I'm sure this is redundant, but just for clarification I'm going to ask anyway since the thread is like 5 years old and still alive (Thank you by the way).

I'm getting the ST this spring, and since I LOVE the "New Edge" Focus front end and hate the 1.25, I definitely plan to swap the 1.25 front for the Mk1.0 front end. I just have a few questions about Part interchangeability quick that MAY be answered already, maybe not.

Okay, question 1: What I'm hearing is that it's a pretty direct swap so long as you have all the parts available (aka either pre purchase or a donor car). But as far as part movement, do I only need to move the Windshield wash reservoir to the other side of the car? Or is there more that needs to be moved around when swapping over?

Question 2: Say hypothetically I have a car that can donate the fenders (2001 ZTS), do those bolt up with the SVT front bumper without trouble/are they the same as the SVT? I'm trying to save cost since I'm almost positive I won't be able to find an ST with a SAP that I can a) look at before I buy (All cars I'm looking at are over 200 miles away. b) buy since SAP cars overpriced on the market at the moment.

I'm sure I'll have more questions. But right now those are the big ones.

Thanks in advance!

Antisocial Aaron I hit a cougar on Tuesday night at about 80 KM/H aka 50 Miles per hour, totally destroyed the passengers side fender, headlight and hood not to mention the bumper cover, I'll be bolting on a new set from the auto wrecker, I'll be sure to take some photographs. Oh yeah I guess I should mention, the general appearance of my car is terrible so this will result in an upgrade! Gotta love wildlife!

I probably should have bought a few of those kits, when I had the chance.
