need body work advice

i have a 98 and am looking to update the front end to a better looking front clip, can a 04 or newer front clip be put on a 98 with some modding, i hate the look of the long head lights and want to put the cool looking round lights , i have heard the core support needs changing and what else

im sure it COULD be made to fit, however it would look like crap. how about the cobra style front bumper? also, you wouldnt be able to put 99-04 headlights with your fenders.

you could also get some new headlights. i think these look pretty sweet:

could be made sure, but it wont look good as the body lines are 100% different.

Look at a Saleen front end for 94-04 or Roush

Re: need body work advice

I think the 94-98 front ends can look pretty good if done right. Throw on a cobra hood or cowl and the cobra bumper with the round fogs (smoke them), along with those blacked out headlights...you got a mean looking sn95.
