Default Hood Swap??

Willl the hood from a 95 ssei fit on a 93 ssei? I need to replace my hood and radiator support and a junkyard has both for $150.

I'm anxious to get my baby smiling as she goes down the street again.

Just incase anyone needs a pic of the 95 hood..

yes, they will fit.

The hood was the same 92-95 for sure, and I believe up to 99.

The grill was the same on the SSE/SSEi from 92-95.

All 92-99 hoods are the game
As jim mentioned difference in the grill but for what your looking to swap there should be no difficulty and swap right in

Right now I have no grille, so it would be nice to not have a gap-tooth car anymore.

Oh I shall, after reading through this forum I have many ideas.

I'm wondering if one can change the colors of the lights on the dash. or is that film on the dispay to give it color?

The grille in the pic you posted will not fit your car. That is an SE or SLE. The grille is taller and fits down into the dip in the front bumper cover.

That grille will rub on your bumper cover.

You need an SSEi/SSE grille. The hood is fine.

Ah, so i can take the hood, just not the grille, pretty sure I can locate one somewhere. Ebony needs some teeth to smile.

Lol I named her ebony since I wanted a black one sooooo badly.
