Upgraded front end

Upgraded front end

Postby rolltidez71 [OP] » Mar 01 2012, 9:06pm

Hey, I have been doing massive searches and with no luck at all. I am looking to see what it could/would take to go from a 04 Silverado front end to a 07+ front end. I am looking to keep the fenders and adjust them to the headlights if need be. I just haven’t seen it done and really can’t get any details on it. I see all the time people doing the 99' to my front end but nothing else.

Any links or advice please let me know. I am aware it would take some decent amount of modification but I am pretty good with metal work, just don’t know if I can get a idea of what it looks like before I start hacking it up :lol:

People should be thrown in jail for using that much Bondo.

It was at least 3/16" of Bondo. What a hack.
