1993 edge

Ok this may be stupid but anyone think it could be possible to make my 93 in to an edge as far as looks go i know the suspension prob couldnt be done but i just thought it would be kinda cool yall let me know what yall think

color coded bumpers, valance, rubber floor interior, round fog lights in valance, 2001+ headlights, side marker lights, tail lights, grill, powerdome hood.
thats about all you have to do except for the Torsion bar suspension.

+ flares if it's a styleside and a new header panel. You probably will have to change the front fenders because of the different side markers and rake of the hood too.

I'm not sure how different the front of the frame rails where the header panel mounts will be.

Gonna need to weld on a new radiator core support. That's the thing that really holds people up from doing that swap on a gen3. Ontop of that, new frame horns will need to be welded for the bumper to attach to. Basically....a S-ton of parts required. But if you've got the money and the tooling, go ahead.

hood
fenders
hood hinges
hood latch
rad core support
header panel
grille
lights/corners
new frame horns welded on
bumper
bumper brackets
valence
misc hardware
paint and bodywork

And that's all just by memory...i'm sure there's more I'm forgetting.




oh....and imitation is the greatest compliment, best form of flattery(speaking in terms of vehicles)...it's not disrespect to edge owners. wtf you thinkin?
