Default Front light assembly change over?

What about getting a front light assembly from a 1999 to fit on older 1995 Bonneville’*. I was wondering if anyone had tried it?

TY

You're looking at a lot of work there! Harnesses, fender modification & other electrical changes too. First off the actual "fit" would have to modified. Secondly the electrical relays & harnesses would have to changed/modified. This includes Switches, Relays, Connectors, Bulbs, Lenses, Lamps, etc...

I was thinking of fitting the shell to avoid re wiring, but if the shell wont fit then oh well, "just a thought".

Don't get me wrong, I know you're inventive Ty! I'm just laying out some basic facts. You know as well as I do some modifications are ALWAYS required!

If I remember right the headlight switches are different though due to the dash assembly.
