Hood interchange?
Monday, February 24, 2014 2:19 PM
The '94 cavy needs a new hood. None of the junkyards around me have hoods for this car. What other Js can I take hoods from (skylark, cimarron, etc.) that won't need major modifications?

91-94. 88-90 are the same. They can all be interchanged but I forget what the difference was.




On the inside my car looks like a fighter jet.

I happened across 2 2nd gen cavy's in the junkyard last year and the 91-94 hood front edge seemed to have more of an angle on it than the 88-90 ones. Don't think that would be a big issue with interchange-ability though. 88-94 Sunbirds is the only other Jbody to have the same hood as the 88-90 Cavaliers.

The latch is the difference. You can swap latches easily.

I knew something was different. I thought it was the hinge mounting points but your probably right.
