Default 3rd gen headlights on 2nd gen?

Anybody know if I can take the headlights from my 2000 and put them on my 1998?

Also I did swap the mount without an issue it's just that there is about a 2" gap in the center going to the saturn logo

You will want to swap the bumper and fenders, possibly the hood, to make it look "factory".

The space frame is identical, so all the exterior parts should transfer without major consequences.

You can get away with just hood, brackets, and units, but once you start thinking of swapping panels you have to swap them all due to design. If you don't care for looks you can get away with a front end swap if panels are badly damaged, but you will have to rivit in doner car fender/bumper supports. You can find more info here; http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...8&postcount=34

If any user helped you, be sure to rep them.

If you are good with a buffing wheel, you can polish and recondition them.
