The LT hood and LS hood I have are different I presume. The LT hood I have is flat vs the LS hood I have has curves behind the headlights up towards the cowl, just go easy on test fits. Also I had to trim my LT fenders by the radiator support just behind the first mounting area, it needed to be trimmed.

Trimmed? Do you have any photos of what you had to do? It appears to all swap over with no hassle providing all the brackets and misc. other parts are in place.

Anyone know where i can pick up a left and right fog light wiring harness? The harness that the Ls fog lights use has a 90* bend to it which won't work with the Lt fog lights.

after a couple of hours for some needed rewiring and replacing every bulb all the lights are officially working. I did notice that in the Lt1 if the high beams where turned on the fog lights would turn off leaving the high and low beams on. As for the Ls wiring if the high beams are switched to the on position, the low beams turn off....i guess it will make for even crapper vision while driving at night. HID kit will defiantly be in store for this car.

That is the way lighting is standard, fogs usually turn off with the high beams.

Hopefully it will be a "legal" HID replacement?

I ment i cant run the low and high beams together. When i switch the high beams on the lows shut off. The Lt car allows the high and lows to stay on together while the fog get turned off. As far as "legal" I'd pefer them to be legal

some of progress I've made and some of the issues I've had to correct.








I have fixed all the fender alignment issues but one, that being the hood and making sure the lines for the hood are straight. I have to reroute the wiring harness that runs on top of the passenger side strut tower, and the air hose that runs on top of the drivers side strut tower and the hood will be latch completely down.

anyone have a good links to the wire mod? I checked on tech which the guy did it on a red trans am. it was helpful but i still run into the driver side that needs to be done as well. I'm thinking about just running two holes on either side of the strut tower and running the hose through there. if anyone has stickys on this please send them my way. thanks guys

Can the radiator be lowered at all? The radiator cap is sitting to high, i need about a 1/2" to clear. The hood closes but again the radiator cap is sitting a bit to high?

Yeah , I'm going to lower the latch I still have to pull the front corners of the fenders up and bolt the corners down. I just hope that fixes it. I'm guessing I can get a 1/4" down with the latch and a 1/4" up with the fender. That should solve the problem

I got the car back together, this hood is on its way out. I just put up a post about a ss hood I just found. If it's a genuine slp ss hood I'm most likely getting it. The fenders need to be resprayed and I have to get the newly powder coated front wheels back on. The fenders still have room to get moved up, and I still have room to lower the hood latch, which will help with correcting these lines but this hood is on its way out

Found a slp ss hood out in Texas for a $1,000.00 looks like that's it.

I believe I found a hood for this car but got some more work on the car. All I have left to do is tighten up the bolts from the fenders to the front bumper cover and bolt in the fenders to the under brackets under the doors....just waiting on some lift time. Here the car as of today.
