has anyone done this to a mk 1.5 yet?

I've seen a couple people piece together svt bumpers, but was wondering if anyone has cut up a euro front bumper cover and plastic welded it to a 05-07 front? when I had my 03 I wanted a this euro front with reiger lip kit, but it never happened. Just wondering if anyone has chopped up a 1.5 with a euro front seeing as there is a lack of oem looking options ( aside from the sap)

People have done the whole front end swap to Euro (bumper, fenders, headlights, hood, grill) but I've never seen just a bumper put on. It would be hard because the complete top of the bumper would need to be rebuilt but it would look pretty neat if done right.

The biggest issue most likely would be that the 1.5 Focus appears to have a squarer front end than the more rounded 1.0 Focus. Under the headlights, fenders, and bumper could be hard to get to flow into each other.
