#1 - Tell y our mech to come to this site.
#2. Tell your mech that the later hood witht he later lights will be a direct fit, no problems at all, the hood is the same, apart fromt he grill area, and with the updated lights, it is a direct bolt on.
I would have ordered the 94-95 hood anyway, and if it didn't work then I would have worried about it.
But Lets just be glad your car will be back together soon.
If it were me, I would have gone for the hood upgrade, which I would do if my car had front damage. And Which I will do later if I decide I want to. Personally, I'm just going to black out my grill frame like before, and enjoy it.
