    this is a very common question.... the answer is how well can u weld and fabricate, if you can then its easy.

    look at the front ends then ask yourself how hard it would be. one is a box and one is round.

    yes, I can see the differences between the two. The entire front end needs to be new. that still doesn't answer my question.

    thats why its called custom, no one can tell you exactly what to do because its different on every vehicle. to say the least its extremely difficult.

    from what i have looked into you need to graft the front of the second gen fenders into the stock 85's.....

    the hood you can either use your stock 85 and build a front to match the profile of the second gen grill or cut the front off of the second gen hood and graft it onto the 1st gen.

    grill and bumper you are going to need to make mounts to hold them also the same with the headlights, so it probly would be best to get a second gen rad support.


    other than that, thats about all the major work.... def not a weekend project or even a month project, its gonna take a lot of skill and fabrication to get it to appear and fuction perfectly. def not a job for a person with out the ability to weld shape and cut metal. its even a hell of a job for the pros.

    Lets put it this way. People that ask how shit like this needs to be done, usually dont have the abilities to do it themselves. Now if you do have the abilities, you should be able to tell how this can be done by simply comparing the two.

    And yes, it would be extemely difficult if you want to make it look right because you would have to weld the 85 and 02 fenders together and then make the 02 flow into 85...
