Volovo bumper swap... Dodge Caravan bumper swap?

Postby Dot Communist » Thu Jun 11, 2009 6:49 pm

I know that the lip of an 80's volvo wagon looks pretty beasty on an e30, but has anyone ever tried to snag the lip off of one of these old dodge caravans? In my mind it would look pretty decent on an e30 :D

that would be way too big and it's way to rounded, won't flow at all. That said, give it a shot! :)

A little dremeling and I think i could make it work, depends if it would actually somewhat fit over the front tho.

That would definitely be different! I think someone should do the opposite of what honda guys do and form a civic front end onto a bimmer.... that would be funny! :)

I think it would be ugly as all hell.

But do it anyway.
