R45 MK2 Project

Rover 45 MK2 2011-06-03 006k

With this page I want to show you my R45 MK2 Diesel project.
At the moment this is my daily car.

Some info about the car.
Its from June 2004 and the planning is to make it a MG ZS MK2 from the outside, just the looks not the badges and interior.
I bought the car with front damage that looked not so bad (but it was)
There were a lot of parts missing.

The planning is :
– fix the front damage so that i can drive the car [DONE]
– MG ZS MK2 Grille (have it already just have to mount it)
– MG ZS MK2 frontbumper (already mounted and repainted) [DONE]
– Find Fog lights with ZS MK2 brackets and mount themĀ  [DONE]
– Find ZS MK2 Front bumper stone guard and mount it [DONE]
– maybe tinted windows
– maybe lowering the car
– 18 inchen rvs spyder rims (have to buy new wheels)
– MG ZS Extreme spoiler (have it already but needs repainting)
– MG ZS MK2 180 Bodykit (have it complete thx 2 Ross, needs fixing and respraying)
– maybe dual exhaust L & R (not in a hurry for that)
– Respraying all the parts
