Question Front end conversion...

So, I don't know if anyone else has thought of it, or if anyone else has done it, but I was wondering (if I even could pull it off) if I could do a front end conversion on my 99 S10 to the "angry eyed" front end of an 03 Silverado (or Colorado, cause I think that's smaller?)

I'm just typing as I think, because I have no idea from prior knowledge of the front end sizes are massively different. I know I'd end up having to modify the fenders, but ... Any tips / ideas / websites ?

Thank you ��

I think the Colorado swap has been done. But it requires a LOT of fab work.

If you are good at fab work and have a good bit of time, go for it.

That is a conversion to a trailblazer.. But either way. it will be a lot of work.

The colorado front end is a bit bigger than the blazer and the blazer has a sloped hood, whereas the coly is a pretty flat hood compared to that. Anything is possible though.
