Front Grill
#1
Just wondering, how much of a difference there is between the mounting of the 71 grill and the 73? would I have to make huge modifications to make a grill from a 71 fit the &3 opening? The grill I'm thinking of has already been modified for the 71 in question and yes I'm aware of the difference in the turn signals but I have a work around for that.

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy

It can be done and I'm sure others on here have done this mod. In my opinion, to make it look right, the front bumper should be changed and that requires the fenders be changed. There might be a few work-arounds (other mods) to make this easier but I'm not aware of any.

Good luck. Ray
