parts needed for a front end conversion93 to a 94-95

I wanted to get a 96-97, but theres none around. I found countless 94-95's and was wondering what all was needed. the part behind the bumper (bumper re-enforcement/ black egg crate thing) is that needed too, or can i use the one i have?

You will need the header panel, lights, bumper cover and hood. The corner lights are actually the same. You might also need to rewire the headlights. (Don't the pre-94's have two headlight bulbs?) I am not sure about the eggcrate thingy.

Might also need the hood latch and the release rod for the 96/97 style headerpanel, and the 95 and down are different.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

Doh! I always forget something! Although it is unclear if he wants to swap to 94/95 or 96/97.

I was going to do a 96-97 conversion, but cant find the parts locally. Theres about a million 94-95's in the yards around here. Whole reason this is bothering me is because i need a new bumper, which no one has around here
