anyone done an 89-93 to 94-95 front end swap?

i found a gold 94 being parted out not too far from me. questions:

other than the hood, headlights, and front bumper, what is needed to complete this swap?

do i need the 94 metal bumper reinforcement and the black plastic waffle thing?

do i need the 94 hood latch?

do i need to redo wiring for the different headlights?

will my stock fog lights fit in the 94 lower corner openings on the bumper, and will they line up with the openings that are on my stock bumper?

89-93 and 94-95 header panels are the same, right?

finally, did 94 and up mn12s come with mocha frost (paint code DD) exteriors?

You'll probably need the "waffle" thing which is the headlight panel.
Probably gonna need the hood latch, the hoods/lights/bumpers changed.
Wiring... I think so because the 94+ have 9007 bulbs (low and high in one bulb).
Stock fog lights should fit, if not I'm sure you can find harnesses to mount em.
Not sure about the header panel (see first line), I personally thought they were different but I could very well be wrong (sorry, I know that doesn't help)

well it turns out the hood on that parts car is gone, so i wont be doing this swap. i think the gold on the 94 is a different shade compared to mine, also.

Fiberglass Hood

Primer is lighter than basecoat/clearcoat... besides, going fast IS looking good.

Anyone want parts. I got BBQ'd
