A LOT of caprice owners spend good money on gettin a front euro clip or on the front headlight piece. i want to put euro front look now that the euro back clip is in place. Instead of gettin a clip cant i just take the whole head and corner [theyre together as one piece] lights from a newer euro caprice and put it in the older 80s caprice :dunno: i have a feeling it will work but just wanted to know if anyones tried it. i havent looked at how the euro headlight assembly is bolted on. anyone have close up pics, please? thanks for all replies. :cool:

wusup SinCity... i dont exactly know if it would work becuz on the older style the grill piece is differant, so the headlight pieces arent exactly the same...i have to go look and measure to see if it would work.But it would be easier to just swap the front end.. a little bit of cutting and rewiring is nessasary, but it would be eaiser.

i know it will work on an 86 (87 and up already euro) but not sure other years
yeah. i got an 88 rear euro clip and it fit perfectly. the thing is. i im going to CUT and re wire to put some newer head lights in and have the 80s corner lights stock. might as well bolt tha whole thing off since its one piece and put in a whole newer caprice headlight/corner light piece u know wut i mean? if i cant ill just get the piece that hold the front bumper, lights and grille. is there a specific name for that piece bro? thanks :cool:

"the header panel"is what holds the lights and grille

u also gonna need the fillers for this heh
the bumper is held seperately

but i think u can get the headlights on there by buying this metal piece that goes around them (forget what they are called)
