I just bought a hood and cowel panel from a 92 G20. I was wondering if it would fit on a 77 G20?

Is there a difference on the hood and cowel from 92 to 77?

I'm no expert on this, but I know a couple of things.

The '92 cowl won't have the hole/mounts/whatever for the washer sprayers.
On the '92 the washer sprayers are clipped to the wiper arms and fed by rubber hoses.
I'm not sure if all the cowl mounting points are the same.

The hood latch mechanism may be different because the top of the core support on those two year models is very different.
I guess it is possible that the hoods themselves are the same and just have different hardware attached, but I don't know.

I wish I could give you more, but that's all I'm aware of.

I've put a mid 80s hood on a 79 and you need to do some custom fab work to get the catch to work. I'll take some pics.
