97 Front end swap?

Recommended Posts

The upper/outer corners don't line up. The early fenders have a flat, straight chamfer at the transition from the vertical sides to the flat top next to the hood. The early header has a small beveled section to match this. The new style is rounded (radiused) rather than chamfered.


You can make it work. Before mounting the new header, you fill in the inside of those upper corners with Bondo. Then you mount the header, and shave down the outside of the upper/outer corners to blend in with the old fenders.
