77 to 74 Malibu front swap...

Post by Roadcaptain S3 on Tue Apr 08, 2014 7:09 pm

Refresh my memory fellas. Going from double stacked, four eyed 77 headlights to 74 singles.

I've got 74 Grille, headlight buckets and bezels. (74 -75 buckets were the same right?)

Do I need bumper fillers or are they interchangeable/usable?

Anything I missed?

'74 & '75 buckets are different cosmetically. (The bezel is bigger on '75) as for the fillers what year bumper are you using?  I would use the same year filler as the bumper.

Keeping the 77 bumper. Too nice to get rid of.

I just though of something, the brackets that hold the grille to the core support are different. (I found this out the hard way by putting a '76 grille on my '74)

You may be able to drill new holes. I went the other way and there wasn't metal where I needed there to be metal to mount the plastic grille.
