NO!

The VN and VP and VG and VQ share a common bumper support bar.
The VQ is fitted with VN headlamps. These only fit the VN indicators which in turn only fit up to VN gaurds. The bonnet is the same across all those models. The grill will need to be fitted to the bonnet.

VN/VQ/VG headlamps are a different shape to VP!
They are totally incompatable. The inner line of the light near the grill is straighter on a VN than VP. Also the bottom edge of the VP light rolls under in the shape much more than the VQ/VN/VG headlamp does.

You would also need to either modify the guards to fit the indicator as your VP was originally fitted with an indicator.

The bumper will fit perfectly fine man... & the same goes for the grill. I put a VN SS style grill that was on my car onto a mates VP and it fitted just fine... So the VQ grill should fit fine as well then shouldnt it?

VP Wags, I'll buy the Grill & Bumper off you mate...

You wont be able to fit it properly with VP Guards & Lights/Blinkers...

The grill will fit if you tig/mig the brackets onto the VP bonnet but the Bumper wont line up properly an it'll look dodgy.

Cheers
MaT
