Hood swap
« on: April 11, 2011, 09:13:44 PM »
I have a 93 Dodge I would like to swap to a 85 hood im told that you have to lower the hood latch in the core support from someone who did it on a 92 is that true or is it a direct bolt on. Any help would be great, Thanks

    My post is above i may have the year wrong it is older hoods with the lowered indents on each side may be 70's models. Thanks

     You would also have to change the cowl panel (the piece between the hood and windshield), as the style lines of the '79-'93 hood are different. The hood and cowl panel you are wanting to change to was used from '72-'78. Not sure about the latch being different, but there may be differences in the two. It is a common swap, so it should not be long before someone here who has done the swap will chime in.
