    Was thinking of the 89-91 grill swap, and was thinking: would the grill from a van work it looks about the same, or is the shape off a little??

    Some of the parts will work, but the grill itself, the parking lamps and so on are a different shape.

    I tried to use some of the truck parts to clean up the nose of my Van and none of them fit, all different shapes.
    However I think the headlight buckets are the same between them, and maybe the center section of the grill, but everything else is different.

    How did you get the composite Celebrity headlights mounted up?

    I want to stick that nose on my 87 but I also wanted to do the composite lenses with high output bulbs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
