I just bought an '84 Foxbody and i'm not 100% crazy about the look of the front end (I like it, but I have another look that I like better). My question is will the front bumper cover of an '82 Fox fit on my '84? I like the shaping of the '82 more so if it can just get bolted on then that'd be awesome. If not, is it a matter of some fabrication in terms of new holes for bolts/rivets (or whatever holds it on) or are the measurements just completely off?

The biggest issue is the different hoods. The hood changed in ‘83.

That hood’s bodylines won’t match up to the bumper.

I “think” if you replace the hood too, you’d be ok. You might want to ask the guys in FEP to be sure.

Thanks for the reply, and I do plan on changing the hood out too :)
Also, i'm new here, what is FEP?

Be careful what you ask over at FEP. If you ask about putting an 87-93 nose on a pre 87 (I know that's not what you are asking but...) prepare for full nuclear meltdown and being banned......those guys are not as friendly as us. We even let guys put GM engines in their cars over here....sometimes.....
