Default Front End Dilemna

Hey ppl long time no chat! howz everyone been? hopefuly gud..I on the other hand havent been doing so well about a week ago i got into a little accident with my baby(my bonneville mind you, i have no kids yet ). the lights, the hood, the grille and the bumper were damaged. I replaced the lights and I am in the process of replacing the other parts, which is why im here...does anyone know if the hood, grille, and bumper to any older models fit a 97 SE? I would really appreciate any help. thanks

96 will fit, as well as a 98 and 99. I'm assuming you want the same exact hood/grill/bumper as you have now.

Technically you could put a hood/grill and bumper from a 92-99 on yours, but they wouldn't fit right around your headlights, and the bumper would not match the rest of the car which isn't what you want. Then you're talking about a front end conversion which will be expensive and time consuming.

Thanx 4 the info doode...would you happen to know how far off the hood to a 92-95 would be? because in car part yards that is all Ive found so far(but then again I only went to a few and it was only this past weekend). would it be really noticeable and ugly, or hardly noticeable? The grille I might be able to fix or find somewhere else...

Yoooo dooodie whassssssssssssssssssssssssssssup

You can type and spell normally right?

The hood is the same 92-99
Lights, grill, bumper, fenders and turn signals are different. 96-99 all fit right for you though.
