'73-74 Nova Front Clip

Okay, so I have seen a few 73 and 74 Novas with clips from previous year Nova, I'm saying 70-72. My question is how hard is it to install a clip from a 70-72 or maybe even 68 or 69 Nova onto a 73-74. What mods need to be made? Cutting, drilling, welding, etc...Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are two brackets ,one on each side of the grille that are not being remade,I think they are called grille brackets,also the top grille support that rivits to the top of the grille is not being re made ,chevy 2 only does carry some used parts or maybe ebay or ajunk yard for these parts.

Thank you for the reply. With the fenders being the same from 70-74, it should be fairly easily to convert a 73-74 front end into a 70-72 front end.

You can also buy a 68-72 nova if thats what you really want and spare your 73-74 the transformation of being something its not.
