83 front body on a 89?

Wondering what is needed to swap my 89 to a 83 front. I want to modify the grill to a mesh muscle car style with round headlights behind it. What would I need other than fenders and hood to do this swap?

Hey, Tony.

Dont know if you ever got your question answered, but I just joined the site today and wanted to share what little I know. Im hoping to do the same thing with a 91 that Im looking at, since I love the Gen 1 look, but this 91 is almost totally rust-free. It should be a matter of swapping the fenders, hood, grill, front bumper (the 89-92 bumper wraps overtop of the lower front fender corners, while the ones from 83-88 stop short), and the radiator support piece (aka - the clip). If you get this, let me know how you made out!

Cheers.
