    Hey guys,

    Has anybody ever seen or does anybody own any sort of cover/extension sort of panel that covers on top of the headlights when opening the hood? I thought I have seen them in the past, but can't really find anything. There are some radiator covers such as UPR that extend out to over top of the headlight, but there is still a pretty large opening where you can see all the lovely wiring that leads to the headlights and I was just curious if anybody makes a panel for this? Thanks

    do you know if a 94-95 cover will fit 96-98? I feel like the coolant overflow tank setups are different off the top of my head

    Yeah, I am doing some research on it and it appears 94-96 were that way, and 97-98 were not

    Good luck finding any that aren't broken where they bend, mine had tape hidden away on the underside holding them together

    Perfect, that's exactly what I was looking for. There's no way that 5.0 one would fit with how the expansion tank setup is on the modular's. I'm sure something can be fab'd up for the head light covers on the modulars, but I'll just roll with the one's that were intended for my year. Thanks again.

    A friend of mine cut up the 94-95 one to go around the expansion tank I'll try to get a shot of it. Looks really good. Lots of measuring
