Say what you want. tongue I'm diggin' it. I put the LTZ hood badge on and mounted up this mint CC grill. I gave it a quick spray bomb job but I am going to have the emblem spot filled and painted gloss black at a body shop.

I like it with the headlights you have. Maybe you could incorporate your own custom emblem in the original spot?

Either that, or move the LTZ badge to where the Olds one was on the grill.

That's why I like it, with the stock lights it doesn't look good to me, the BMW "euro" lights make it look nice. Or maybe the lights Billy Mac has on the wagon.

I like it. It's definately the lights that help it out. Smile

You need to remove all the chevy emblems and make it an Olds 88 or 98 or something. Wink

Damn I just put a black and red Chevrolet emblem on the trunk lid. I would have to plan that carefully.

OCC dash? stock OCC wheels? LTZ badge replaced by a rocket?

I like the possibilities Smile

The OCC Dash swap isnt hard in the 91-93 Caprice, but I dont know if its possible in the 94-96 cars.

Did they change the cowl that much or even at all though? It doesn't seem like they would have made such a drastic change.

Anything is possible. The sheet metal is probably the same between the years... I wouldn't go that far though.

You need to strip it down to the steel support and swap everything. Plus the wiring for the guages will need to be addressed. Plus the door panels need to be swapped to fit the dash.

Pretty sure the TBI car panels all match up to the different dashes. But I've never wanted to try it, only thing I really want to do is the digital climate control swap, but i've never been able to get a straight answer on what I need to do it. I know its possible.

Head unit
All the ductwork
Custom wiring harness
Outside temp sensor (plugs into empty harness at front of radiator, but wiring will end before it gets to the spot you need it in the dash)
The wiring taps into the speed sensor at the trans to prevent heat soak readings
It'll never dim since the dimmer switch is wired through the radio and you won't have that option

That's about it from what I remember

Wouldnt I just need to cut the harness from the donor car and just wire it into my car? And wouldn't the ducting in there now work? Otherwise, the project seems pretty straightforward, just time consuming.

91-93 door panels only work with 91-93 dashes.

There is a thread on ISSF explaining EXACTLY how to do a climate control swap. Pictures and everything. Do some digging you will find it. It's also not exactly as easy as you are making it seem. Otherwise, I would have done it in my caprice already.

It's time consuming and there is quite a bit to do but its not as hard as some made it seem. I bookmarked it, i'm gonna slowly gather the parts that'll be a long term project I think.

Remember, your car is a 93. The wiring and or the crap behind the dash may be different!

I'm not sure. This is not a dig on you, but on the design of that grille itself: I don't like how the eggcrate on those goes up further with no border or frame between it and the hood. But good job on trying something different. How about the whole grille in gloss black?
