Keep it simple..Get a new paintjob..
New alloys..

Why do you want to make it into the new version...
If you really want to change the looks..Go for addon kits..

If you don't feel bad I'll give you my opinion.

I personally thought the 1997 M800 genII looked a lot better than the GenIII with the funny boot. My opinion only. You don't have to agree.
Why would you want to spend 30 grand to make it look like something it is not?

Get the car cleaned up, get a nice shiny paintjob and get the interior all cleaned up. Treat your engine to a spa and get new wheels and tyres. There will be such a feel-good factor in the car, you won't want to modify it.

All the best and do let us know what you decided. With pictures.

Dude, it is your money & spend it where you want it. Of course most of us would not agree to a make over of this sort, but if you still want to go ahead, do it.

I think you will need to get a new shell & all the lamps & accessories. Do you have the right mechanic to do this, otherwise it could end up a waste of precious time & money.
cheers

why are you saying he needs a new shell
the sell of the m800 is unchanged from 1988 till now

and i think if you buy second parts from the scrap ward your cost will come down

with second parts it wouldn't cost more that 15 k or maybe even less

The new model tail lights and headlights wont fix in the type 1 800 as they are of different shapes.
Its possible to fix new headlights and tail lights of the type 3 800 in the type 2 800 not the type 1

the shell is unchanged so the points to bolt on the headlight and tail lamp are the same

and yes its possible to change the headlamp from type 2 to type 3 but you wouldn't get the headlamp leveler

i have converted my type 1 alto to type 2 alto you can view pic in my gallery

Mere bhai type 1 is the square headlight and tail light wala model and type 2 has a rectangular headlight so it does not fix and the tail light moutings of type 1 is totally different from the type 2 and 3.
The shell is unchanged agreed but the basic design of the tail lights and headlights have changed.
