Hi guys

I was wondering what parts are required to swap on the front end to make my 94 thunderbird look like the 96-97 ones? is it just the bumper cover or are the hood, fenders etc all diffrent? I just like the cleaner look vs mine which has weird teardrop shape openings in the bumper

thanks

Bumper cover AND insert, hood, header panel, headlights, corners, hood release rod, and the little struts to hold up the hood.....the 94 ones will go on there, but they don't hold the hood up that well....don't ask how I figured that out.

That's all I can think of...if I missed anything, someone will chime in.

I have a '97 hood on my '95 and I used my original hood struts with no problems. Maybe yours were just worn out. (?)

ditto.. it looks almost reminiscent of teh fox cougars.. all pointy and stuff. with that flat back window... i liek it.. especially since its silver. and, IMO.. i like teh 94-95 style front end over all of tehm.. but i would like to have the 96+ hood/headloghts..

Hmmmm. Strange. I remember that they were listed as different part numbers when I looked, so I just figured that the 96-7 must have been stiffer, since my hood fell on the back of my head with my 94's. It's right on the edge of working, sometimes it holds it up, sometimes it tries to kill me. LOL

Maybe mine are just worn out like you said. Great....new item on my to do list.

Thanks for the comments DV and sin.
