a few exterior mods.

can you get the zr silver badge of the mk2 and put it on a mk1? or is it part of the side skirt would like to add to my blue zr.

also i would like to smooth the boot but don't no how as well as add the front black splitter in photo below and also would like to know where you get those grills from that are just open mouth no stalk and badge on the front think this makes it have a more aggressive and sporty look. its in this pic- http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgur...JoO0hAfI87yhCw

cheers matt.

wrong time of night to get answers.

not sure about the ZR on the rub strips, but the face-off grille is a self-mod. you need to cut the centre out, smooth with filler and spray it (very basic version there)

Front splitter could try a Renault Laguna front splitter.

As for the boot you will be best off buying a mk2 tailgate and rear bumper.. Have you though about where the number plate is going to go?

There are face-off grills on ebay for the ZR if you have a looks, or you can do it yourself.

Assuming you mean the side rubbing strip on the doors, the 'ZR' is a vinyl sticker and the end of the rubbing strip is simply sprayed with Silver Sparkle (same colour as MGR alloys - MNH). The stickers can still be got from XPart for about 4.50 (see near the bottom of this page: http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-GRID001283).

The grille you will have to mod yourself - cut out the central 'pilar and use body filler or fibreglass to smooth over the gap top and bottom. The ones you have seen will have been done like that by the owner. You might be lucky and find someone selling one.

for interior im hearing different opinions on carbon fiber say i do an average job will it just look tacky and obvious or is it possible to get a good smooth look?

id be getting cheap stuff of ebay by the way not sure if it makes much difference.
