Insane 1989, 1986 Confusion.
Alright, I have a 1986 LX Convertible (V6 232) and I just recently acquired a 1989 'GT' Hatchback, which was actually a 4 banger LX at birth, and now it is supremely 'ghettoized' as if it were at a chop-shop. The 89's frame is a bit bent, the body a LITTLE rusty, flexi-exhaust (heh), and a nice 302 H.O. The interior is BRAND new, and the rollcage is welded to the frame. The 86 is in great condition except for the transmission, a paint job and some body work on the front clip.
The question: Is it possible to take the lowering springs, engine, tranny, GT effects, saleen wing, roll cage, interior and the aftermarket oil/water guages out of the 89 and put them into/on the 86? Or are the sizes different? I was also thinking about taking the front clip off of the 89 and putting it on the 86, is that possible (?), because I like the headlight style on the 89 more (and the 86's front end is a bit cracked and bent from rear ending a jeep cherokee (heh)).
