Many of you know that 79-93 Mustang's and 79-86 Capri's are very popular cars to fix up modify and customize.  The owner has the ablitly to easlily modify these cars and use parts from different years to get the look or performance they want.

Look below and see our 79 mustang coupe with 79 pace car front end on it and our 80 capri that looks like a 91 lx mustang.

    

Here is a little guide to help you customizer your mustang or capri.

Front Bumper Cover or Noses:  When changing front end make sure you have the right hood.

79-82 Mustang All use 79-82 Hood

83-84 Mustang & 85-86 exc SVO use use 83-86 Hood

If you use a 87-83 front bumper cover on a 79-86 besure to get a front wiring harness out of the junk yard so you can splice it in.

also remember that there are a few differnt header panels

Side Body Moulding and Bumper Covers: So if you change the bumper covers you will want to change mouldings to match.

79-84 Mustang Mouldings use with 79-84 front and rear bumper covers

85-86 Mustang Mouldings use with 85-86 Mustang front and rear bumper covers

87-93 Mustang Mouldings use with 87-93 Mustang front and rear bumper covers

79-84 Capri Mounlding use with 79-84 Capri Front and rear bumper covers *79-82 capri rear bumper cover is same as 79-84 mustang and moulding are same except for 79-82 capris have hard front side mouldings with side markers and 83-84 capris have front and read mouldings with sidemarkers.  84 capri has bubble hatch and uses different bumper cover.SEE HATCHES below.

85-86 Capri mouldings use 85-86 Capri Front and rear bumper covers.  the rear covers on these differ from 85-86 mustang because of bubble hatches.

Hatches and rear bumper covers and taillights:

79-82 Mustang Taillights are all the same.  Can use any 79-93 Mustang or 79-82 CapriTailights on these**

83-84 Mustang Taillights are all the same(same as 85-86 but differ in trim color).  Can use any 79-93 Mustang or 79-82 Capri Taillights on these**

** wiring changes maybe needed when changing taillight years and additional holes

83-86 Capri Hatches are different and use differnt bumper cover: To use differnt hatch on these you must change taillights and rear bumper cover too. Cowl Panel Grilles: Need to match with right style hood.  all cowl panels will fit all cars but to keep the look right follow this guide:

79-82 Mustang & 79-86 Capri are the same cowl panels:  if you change to a 83-93 hood use the 83-93 Mustang Cowl Panel Grill.

83-93 Mustang Cowl Panels are the same.  Can use any 83-93 hood with these.

I will work on more guides in the future hope this helps.
