I did the conversion. looks nicer imho.

- deletet the front side markers next to the turn signals with the OEM short rubber-bumper parts
- swapped the rear us-bumpers (elephant feet) to the smaller euro ones and welded the extra holes shut and paintet the bumper to clean finish the look.
- swapped the rear taillights from us-all-red to euro yellow/red.
- lowered it to euro stance.

the side-turnsignals were ruled as from late 1980, so as of early 1981 they all have them from factory.

mine is a built'78/registration date 5/79, so it fits that it doesn't have them.
look cleaner anyway and avoids potential rust.
