    I've got something screwed up on my Internet Explorer settings and I keep getting errors when I do a search (yeah, yeah, everyone uses that excuse, but I'm the only one telling the truth!!)

    I remember seeing a write up about swapping the nose (fenders, hood, grill, bumper, etc.) from an 81 and up GM truck onto a pre 81 truck. I'm gonna do it and want to read up on it first. I shoulda bookmarked it, but, never thought I'd ever get this motivated!

    Anyone have a link?

    Thanks,

    Eric M.

    Yep, late model on early chasis.

    Anyone know if I need to change the wiper motor and linkage? Someone mentioned it but the article only says to change the wiper posts.

    Thanks,

    Wiper motor and linkage years are 1973-1984 and 1985-1991 if that helps any.
