small kidney to large kidney? (archive)

Posted by have you done the conversion? on October 29, 2000 at 19:59:57:

I am getting a new hood, grills, and both headlight assemblies (with a new paint-job).

I want to convert to the larger kidney style. Is it a simple job if I have the parts? What parts do I need? Do I have to get a different style headlight assembly? and would the parts cost much more than the small-kidney job?

Insurance is paying and I figure now is the time.

Thanks for responding.
I will try to post before and after pics (mind you, the before pics will show a smashed grill and hood)
