View Full Version : XR7 Hood swap 89->91..?

10-01-2002, 02:15 AM
Would like to know if the hoods are the same size (1989 and 1992 cats) because i would like to have the small grill on my 1989 XR7. Is there an easier way out ?

Thanx a lot

heck if you wanted you can put on a t-bird front end. If you use the newer 91- on you will have to get the headlightsand grille and there ya go no problems. It will bolt right on.

I to have the 89 XR7 and really don't like the look of the 89-90 grille. I thought about taking some bondo and filling in the top part of the 89 grill to be even with the hood so it doesn't look like it sticks up so much. If it breaks then on with a t-bird hood because I want a new lighter one with the twin ram air. I want it for looks but also to take heat out of the engine compartment.
