OK you have me convinced I am going to do this grill swap out. I just yanked my bumper off tonight to get rid of the square fog lights and it looks good without them. Are there any mysteries one needs to know about when swapping to a Razor grill? Mine is an '89' Wagon.

Thanks

I took the Valance behind the grill from the donor Cherk when I did it the first time. IIRC there are some tabs to be moved and some to be added. I'm sure someone will chime in with the details.

Some old guy started arguing with my wife over what year Waggie it is. She said he was being real rude about it. She basically told him she knew what she had and to piss off.

Thanks again.

Ive got this swap in the plans also. I love round headlights on these rigs.

That's the way to do it. I just have to find a valence that is in good shape to do the same to my 88. A member here was kind enough to pass along a really nice razor to me. It is hanging on the wall in my garage patiently waiting.

I sort of like the hole above the grill. If there was a little more clearance over my aluminum cross-flow radiator, i would run some sort of ram-air hoses from there into my intake. I think it makes it look a little meaner.

Looks great. I think full wood grain rigs look awsome with razors.

::sigh:: I have it all in the garage, including the brow. I just can't seem to get up the motivation to get it done. Seeing this one makes me think about it again. Looks really nice.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm finally getting this one where I want it. It makes it all worth it to hear the compliments...

Heres how to put a round light in a square hole.
Use the outer tabs on the round ones and use self drilling screws. The bottom one is the locater for positioning the set up into place. The edges of the tab hole touch the edge of the screw hole in the valance and the edge of the light socket as seen here...



The top outer tab hole is lined up with the edge of the light socket as seen here...



From there, I just made 2 tabs to connect the other 2 tabs to the edge of the valance and assemble...





More pics are here...

Interesting and very nice indeed. I like. What donor era has this so called "razor" style? And any major mods to get the roundies to fit (vs. the square stocker headlamps)? I didn't see anything in the Tech Library.

Razor Grills are nice but the will NEVER have the iconic value that you get with a RHINO.

Looks great

The last set of pics explain how to convert from square to round lights. The Razors were used up till '78.
