Yesterday I was parked next to a brand new Jimny in the car park, and I had a idea, would it be possible to fabricate or marrry the front end of a 2019 Jimny to my 2006 with minimal mechanical alterations?
Has this been done? If anyone knows of anything similar or someone who’s actually done what you could maybe call a “transplant” then I’d be very grateful for any help.
To fully clarify here, by “front end” I mean everything beyond the wondscreen not including the wheel arches and mechanical components.
Thank you for any possible replies B)

Thats how I regard the vintage car.
When my moaning teenage lad came home and struck up a pointless argument with Wonder Woman, I retreated to the world of my workshop...

Aaahh ...Peace B)
