So I'm going junkyard hunting for some parts and have some q's.
1. Will the hood and fenders from a 87 work on my 85?
2. Will the taillights off a 87-88 work on my 85?
3. I think I like the 4 eye but just in case is it possible to do a front swap?
4. I come from mustangs so is the suspension from say a fox springs, control arms, ect. All the same? So could I get springs and rear control arms from a fox and put them on?

If you guys have any good resources to use Ill gladly take them. Im new the the tbirds so I'm trying to learn.

Fenders will bolt up but body lines are different so it won't look right.

Hood will work.

Tail lights will not fit.

Third wheel base is longer than stang, so control arms are different.

Front end will bolt up, but like fenders body lines are different.
