Would an early grill fit on late 1976 2002?

I have a 1976 '02 & really like the look of the early grills. Are they a straight swap or even close to the late grills?

Thanks, Joe in NH

They're not a straight swap! On square taillight cars, the plastic side grilles run right up to the center grill. On round taillight cars, there's a strip of body-colored sheetmetal between the side grills and the center grill.

Joe,

A number of ways to get a little creative; on a '76 2002 I had, I painted them to give them the pre '74-'76 look; took some masking, etc..they came out pretty good. Of course the key would be to maybe pick up a set of used

side grilles for your car, this way, with the current ones off, you can leave them off for a day or so, while you're prepping/painting. I picked up a set of

side grilles from a salvage yard for $20, there were 2 '74-'76 2002's

in the salvage yard I went to, one of them the grilles were gone, the other 2002, the 3 piece grille was in the trunk., just about perfect condition.

Tim

Yeah, I thought that might be the case. Thanks.

No.

It's quite difficult.

Impossible if you don't own a welder.

Why will this question not die?

" will a sync link work on my weber 38/38 with a 5 speed...."

only if it is for a 3 bolt flange. I hear a member of the forum has some money of mine for two years to make an adapter and can't contact him.

Yes, but it has to be the fine- spline 3- bolt flange.

The coarse spline is a different length....

Simple question. No need to be an ass. If you have something constructive then add a comment, if not, be quiet.

Why Toby, why do I need "luck next time"??? Are you somehow sharper or more intelligent than the rest of us? Please do explain yourself. My question was / is a simple one. If it is below you then just shut up & move on to the next post. If you have something helpful to add then please do.
