I'm swapping everything from my rusty 92 GT into my clean 90 Metro.

Problem is, the Swift hood is rusted through... and the Metro has the recessed headlights...

So I think I'm going to keep the Metro hood + upper bumper cover, affix the GT lower cover, and buy composite Firefly/Metro LSi headlights to replace the recessed units. My questions are:

1. Will all that fit together properly?

2: What can I badge this car without it being ricey? Can't quite call it a Swift, but with a G13B, four wheel discs, et cetera... it'll be more Swift than Metro...

3: Are there any ventilation issues with effectively having a Swift GT without a grille? (having the G13B in a Metro)

I dont see a problem. My car has a metro bumper on the chev sprint. I like the way it flares out at the bottom.

1. Yes it will fit
2. It was always a Swift ( there is nothing on either car made or designed by GM ) but don't call it anything .Delete all the badges
3. No ventilation issues especially in Pittsburgh , just make sure to use GT radiator since it's two row ( Metro is one row)
